Third Monday was an annual Presidents Day fic exchange for fandoms centered around U.S. politics: Fake News RPF, Fake News FPF, Real News RPF, and Political RPF, although it also encouraged crossovers with the fictional world of The West Wing. In its final year, the crossovers-only rule for The West Wing was removed, and The Newsroom was also added as an eligible fandom.

From the LiveJournal profile:

Presidents, Pundits, and Powerbrokers: A Fake News, Real News and Newsmakers President's Day Ficathon.

As for what's eligible:
Fakenews (The Daily Show and The Colbert Report (including Steve Carell, Paul Dinello and Amy Sedaris and FPF Colbert Report characters), Weekend Update, and any other Fakenews Show that routinely discusses American Politics)

Realnews (CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox)

Polislash (Whitehouse, Whitehouse-elect [including Aaron Sorkin and crew], and Congressional)

West Wing FPF crossovers with any of the previous three fandoms.
