The Vinegar Hill Dispatch

Neilson Abeel

An internet television show about politics, the U.S government and my various obsessions.

The Vinegar Hill Dispatch is an Internet television show/videoblog that combines offbeat humor, personal stories and educational segments about the structure and history of the United States government. In addition, the show discusses current political events and links these to the historical/educational segments to help the viewer understand these events more fully.

My typical user is someone aged 18-45 who uses the Internet frequently. This person probably follows current events and politics to some degree by reading newspapers, blogs or watching television news programs. This person is likely to watch The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report regularly. In addition, this person is likely to have watched some sort of Internet TV show or videoblog such as Rocketboom or The Show with Ze Frank. This person is probably politically liberal but might a centrist or conservative who appreciates good humor regardless of its politics.
