Last week in Tampa, Republicans hoped to change the conversation going into November. But as you saw, what occurred was a conversation with an empty chair and empty lies about how the United States got into this recession.
That’s why we’re teaming up with Democracy for America this week in Charlotte to provide a live studio where progressive leaders, pundits, and your favorite bloggers and reporters will join us for progressive conversations. You’ll hear from folks like Rep. Keith Ellison, Rep. Donna Edwards, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, Sen. Jeff Merkley, Van Jones, Lizz Winstead, The Nation’s Ari Berman, Gov. Howard Dean and more.
The live coverage will be hosted by Cliff Schecter, founder and president of progressive public relations firm Libertas LLC, bestselling author (2008′s The Real McCain), nationally syndicated columnist and regular pundit on such shows as The Young Turks on Current TV, The Majority Report with Sam Seder and Take Action News with David Shuster. Cliff is also a co-founder of Washington DC’s progressive radio station, We Act Radio (AM 1480).
We know not everyone can make it to Charlotte, so we’re live-streaming these conversations online. All the interviews and progressive talk will be streamed Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST.
You’ll find the stream below, and we’ll update this post with a broadcast schedule when it’s available.
