You know how at Brave New Foundation, we're always attempting to make an impact with our films?
We helped spread the word about hard-hitting documentaries like Outfoxed, Wal-Mart, and Iraq for Sale. Our sister organization, Brave New Films, then started making its own short videos like The REAL McCain and our FOX Attacks series, and you saw the chance to reach even more people by spreading them all over the web. Well, with a great deal of excitement (and just a wee bit of nervousness!), we bring you the next way for you to get involved.
Presenting the trailer to our newest weekly series: Meet the Bloggers.
Beginning July 18, Meet the Bloggers will be a daring new show broadcast LIVE over the internet each Friday at 1PM ET. And the best part is this show is all yours. You will be part of creating the show, telling us what questions we should ask our high-profile guests; what issues we should be talking about; and what actions should be taken. You can also interact with other audience members using a live blog and instant polls.
We've already lined up some dazzling guests including John Cusack, Sen. Harry Reid, Rachel Maddow, and this week, Arianna Huffington (more exciting guests to be announced soon). The show's host will be Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks. And we have a really diverse mix of bloggers including Marcy Wheeler (Emptywheel), Nico Pitney (The Huffington Post), Liliana Segura (AlterNet), Roberto Lovato (Of America), Baratunde Thurston (Jack & Jill Politics), and Faiz Shakir (Think Progress) to bring you smart, unconventional political analysis.
Don't miss this Friday's premiere of Meet the Bloggers, in which we'll be discussing whether Karl Rove should be sent to jail for failing to comply with the House Judiciary Committee's subpoena. Now's your chance to become part of the Meet the Bloggers community; send us your questions and comments before Friday's show for us to consider to include. Give input for our Friday show here: http://meetthebloggers.org.
And if you do miss this Friday's premiere or any other episode, you can still watch them free online any time at meetthebloggers.org. We can't allow the corporatism to dominate the discourse any longer. The stakes are much too high. So please join us live in watching and spreading Meet the Bloggers beginning this Friday, July 18 at 1PM ET.
