Democratic National Committee Launches New Website "McCainpedia"

In a play of words from the popular information website Wikipedia, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) has started McCainpedia, a website which will follow Republican Senator John McCain in his race for the White House.

On the website, they say: " is a wiki run by the DNC's Research, Communications, and Internet teams. The goal is to centralize research material, allowing the general public to use it as they see fit. Unlike some wikis, McCainpedia is read-only and can't be edited by the public. This allows us to fully validate all of the information that appears, ensuring accuracy and reliability.

McCainpedia follows FlipperTV, which puts video taken by Democratic "trackers" of John McCain as he campaigns across the country, and allows users to watch, download, and use the footage as they wish. FlipperTV has now been incorporated into McCainpedia alongside all of the research information".

We have added a permanent link to McCainpedia under the heading "Democratic Party" in the right hand margin of our Home Page. Make sure you click on it often for updates on the campaign.
