Colonial Dispatch

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

The Colonial Dispatch is a wire service used by journalists and politicians in the Fleet (Lay Down Your Burdens, Part I). It is likely that this wire service is a subsidiary of the Fleet News Service, although it could also be an independent entity.

Following the first presidential debate, Tory Foster reads a news report to Laura Roslin from the Colonial Dispatch which reads:

Last night's debate only solidified the perception that Doctor Baltar, for all his charm, is essentially an empty suit when it comes to matters of substantial policy.
