Thom Hartmann is pro zionist

Why is he even allowed to debate in this? Any other RT news anchor would do well but why him? Is he there to stop any questions regarding Israel and the palestinians? I found that fishy if you ask me.

Thom Hartmann

Isn't the moderator so he won't be stopping any questions - he's just part of a round table discussion that will take place with the other three listed here. Hartmann also has a radio show that reaches millions and millions daily, and while I disagree with his politics, (just as I do with most of the candidates that will be debating) I'm grateful he's helping promote this event.

Our respect and kudos go out to Ben Swann.

A voice of truth in the wilderness of lies.

Are people free to

attend, or buy tickets to attend?

“When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.” – Dresden James

Let me tell you this...That piece of sh*t Thom Hartmann has...

...absolutely NOTHING in common with any liberty-minded person. NOTHING.

He is one of the most vile rats out there in the liberal media.

Hartmann is as bad as rats like Sean Hannity are in the "conservative" media.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

He isn't as bad as many other

He isn't as bad as many other liberal commentators like Ed Shultz and Bill Press. He opposes the FED. Hell, I was listening to Jerry Doyle the other day, and he was saying good things about Hartmann. I wouldn't call him a defender of liberty, but remember that two of the four candidates on stage are liberals, so they are probably trying to balance out the correspondence.

liberty lover in Nor Cal!

So, how, and to whom are the "correspondents" going

to be reporting to? TV news? Twitter/Facebook? More details please.

RT, Swann, ORO, many, many more-

ABC, CNN, NBC, CBS either pile on at the last moment, or mention the debate post debate -which ever way their GOP, DEM marching orders come down.

Wow, what an e-crowd they will gather to this REAL

thought-provoking, probing presidential debate. I hope we get to read Glenn Greenwald's comments right after the event as well. His article on the lame rules for presidential debates was a great thorough expose:

Secret collusion between the two parties, funded by corporations, run by lobbyists: all the ingredients are there"
