Special Time for "Meet the Press"
This Sunday "Meet the Press" will be airing at 8:00 am on the East Coast. But Howling Latina has some really great news for bloggers.
Our blog god, Markos Moulitsas of Daily Kos has crashed the gate and will be a guest on "Meet the Press."
General George Casey, the commanding general of the Multi-National Task Force in Iraq will be the starting guest to talk about the death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and what it could mean for the future of Iraq and how Iraqis feel about America.
Moulitsas will then be interviewed by Tim Russert and join Jonathan Alter, senior editor and columnist of Newsweek Magazine, Amy Walter, senior editor of The Cook Political Report and Byron York, the Washington House correspondent for the National Review and chat it up at the "Meet the Press Roundtable."
The topic du jour will be the upcoming election.
Looks like the little Las Vegas Kos convention hosted by Moulitsas with Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and DNC Chair Howard Dean as guest speakers finally sparked the interest of mainstream media; and gave the founder and editor of "the world's most widely read political weblog" some well deserved love.
Folks, wake your butts up early and tune in. It should be a dandy!
