Who Is Jered Ede?
Based on a little quick Googling, here's a little background on Jered Ede, the correspondent who incorrectly wrote that Paul Begala said that Republicans want to kill him:

He is a student at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, where he has served as president of the College Republicans. He is a former editor and current business manager of the Carrollton Record, a conservative student-run newspaper at Johns Hopkins. One clue to the level of discourse at the Record is an article illustrated by a dog taking a dump on a picture of President Clinton.

He is working as an intern at CNS through a program run by the Collegiate Network, which "provides financial and technical assistance to student editors and writers at scores of independent (read: conservative) publications at leading colleges and universities around the country."

In short, the kind of person one would expect to assume the most negative and inflammatory interpretation of a Democrat's comments without following the journalistically responsible approach of talking with him afterward to find out if that was what he meant to say.
