Anti-Social Tendencies

"A city commissioner, a liberal radio producer, a deputy Democratic campaign manager and a number of university professors" were among 42 people on a "do not admit" list for President Bush's Fargo, North Dakota event promoting Social Security privatization. The White House said the list, given to two ticket distribution sites, must have come from local volunteers. And the Republican National Committee "is asking television stations to stop airing" ads opposing Bush's Social Security plan. In a letter, the RNC's deputy counsel said was "knowingly and willfully spread[ing] false information," and reminded the stations that Federal Communications Commission license holders must "avoid broadcasting deliberate misrepresentations."
