THE NEW YORK YOUNG REPUBLICAN CLUB, INC.
WELCOMES JOURNALIST CLAUDIA ROSETT TO THEIR JANUARY 2006 MEETING


New York, NY (January 11, 2006) The New York Young Republican Club will hold their first general meeting of 2006 on Thursday, January 19. The featured speaker will be Claudia Rosett, Journalist-in-Residence at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies and contributor to the Opinion Journal.

During her 22 years as a journalist and editor, Ms. Rosett has covered historic events around the world, including Tiananmen Square, the war in Chechnya and the collapse of the Soviet-installed regime in Kabul. Her column for the Wall Street Journal's Opinion Journal, "The Real World," examines human rights and tyranny issues.

Ms. Rosett was awarded the Seventh Annual Eric Breindel Award for Excellence in Opinion Journalism for her coverage of the UN Oil-for-Food scandal. She received widespread praise from her colleagues for her reporting of the issue. New York Times columnist William Safire remarked in Nov. 2004 "Thanks to Claudia Rosett, an enterprising reporter, the world now knows that some information put out by Secretary-General Kofi Annan about his son's involvement is untrue."

The January meeting will also feature the annual State of the Club address from President Dennis Cariello.

Please join the New York Young Republican Club, Inc. at the Union League Club, located at 38 East 37th Street, on Thursday, January 19, 2006, beginning at 7PM.
