The state ethics commission wants to redefine who’s a journalist and who isn’t when it comes to enforcing Oregon’s public meetings law.

As more and more news goes online, and various bloggers, tweeters and other non-traditional news outlets gain momentum, a once-obvious line has become blurred, said Ron Bersin, executive director of the Oregon Government Ethics Commission. Read More

In the latest of many Obamacare boondoggles, one state’s disastrous health insurance exchange is being abandoned after receiving more than $90 million from American taxpayers, who are also being forced to fund a replacement program that will cost tens of millions of dollars.

Flashback:  The young Texas mayor whose keynote speech wowed the Democratic National Convention crowd Wednesday night draws political inspiration from his mother – who is a member of a radical civil rights movement and who reportedly thinks the truth behind the Battle of the Alamo is that Texans swiped Mexico’s land.
