No, Not That Presidential Campaign: It isn't getting as much attention as any and all things related to the upcoming 2008 election (McCain edges ahead of Hillary in hypothetical poll question!), but in case you were wondering who got nailed for campaign violations in the 2004 elections, it's a couple of familiar organizations. The FEC announced yesterday that it settled charges against Swiftboat Veterans and POWs for Truth, MoveOn.org Voter Fund and The League of Conservation Voters. "The announcement settles charges the 527's 'failed to register and file disclosure reports as federal political' [committees], and 'accepted contributions in violation of federal limits and source prohibitions,'" writes Hotline On Call.
Paging CNN: CBS News has added two more to its ranks, both from CNN: CNNer Kelly Wallace will be joining the network in January as a correspondent based in New York City. One more CNNster, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, has signed on as a contributor who will report occasionally for the "Evening News" in addition to his duties as CNN's chief medical correspondent. TVNewser notes that CBS News has a similar arrangement with CNN's Anderson Cooper, who does occasional reporting for "60 Minutes."
