Pushing Freedom

Here’s the latest edition of Some Stories You Won't Find on any other Sunday show:

Telling His Side

House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (search) met with the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal Friday.
Last month that paper was sharply critical of DeLay and his repeated ethics problems.

Editorial page editor Paul Gigot said the majority leader did not seem defensive when it came to the allegations against him. DeLay told the board, "I've never felt stronger than I do right now ... the members have never been more supportive."

Planning Ahead

The '08 Iowa Caucuses are almost three years away. But that hasn't stopped at least one informal endorsement and one ticked-off potential candidate.

Several weeks ago, Minnesota Senator Mark Dayton introduced Senator Hillary Clinton (search) at a luncheon, calling her the next great president of the United States. A couple of days later, according to Dayton's staff, Senator John Kerry approached Dayton on the Senate floor and angrily asked him why he had endorsed his '08 presidential opponent.

Kerry's staff tried to knock down the incident, but Dayton's people say it happened.

Pushing Freedom

Some college students are being praised and paid for defying administration officials and standing up for student rights.

Filmmaker Michael Moore (search) established a $2,500 "Freedom of Speech Award" for students attending California State University San Marcos. That's the institution that canceled an appearance by Moore last year.
