This Week in CT: Flashback to when John F. Kennedy endorsed Thomas Dodd

(WTNH) – Connecticut is known as a blue, Democratic state, but it wasn’t always that way. In fact, in the 1905s, it was very much Republican. Back in 1985, then-Senator John F. Kennedy sat down with Thomas Dodd, the Democratic candidate for Senate that year. In an old film from the UConn Library, Kennedy endorsed Dodd against Republican Senator William Purcell who was seeking re-election.

Exclusive: 'Nixed' Trailer Shows Richard Nixon Searching For Who Assassinated John F. Kennedy

Shoot 'Em Up's Michael Davis is back with a new animated feature film about a surprising subject—the late President Richard Nixon, who was embroiled in political scandals during his time as president. Nixed takes a different approach to the former president in this "mostly" true story, that sees Nixon try to solve the mystery behind who really assassinated President John F. Kennedy. The trailer, which Collider can exclusively reveal ahead of the film's world premiere at Annecy International Animation Film Festival (the world's largest event dedicated to animation) next week, reveals an off-beat adult political cartoon that is reminiscent of the political artwork popularized by Mad Magazine.

1961: President John F. Kennedy pushes for “affirmative action” in federal services

Executive order 10925 was one of the first acts John F. Kennedy took as president. The order required federal contracting agencies to “take affirmative action to ensure that applicants are employed, and that employees are treated during employment, without regard to their race, creed, color or national origin.” Canceling contracts, among other sanctions, could not happen without consequence. It also led to the establishment of the President’s Committee on Equal Employment Opportunity (later known as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) to oversee policy issues, working in conjunction with the Department of Labor.
