Senator John McCain To Appear Live on Blogtalkradio

As our one year anniversary approaches, you will see a few shows and posts dedicated to the many exciting things that took place on Blogtalkradio over this past year.

Today at 2pm EST on Ed Morrissey’s CQ Radio show, Senator McCain will appear live on Blogtalkradio. Senator McCain who has been getting battered pretty bad in the press these days will certainly get a fair shake from Ed and Blogtalkradio.

From the outset, we always intended that Blogtalkradio would be a balanced network from a political perspective. Accordingly, we air political shows from bloggers that are on the right, left and center. Our top political hosts are highlighted on Blogtalkradio sponsored blogs entitled Heading Right and Heading Left. I suggest that you take a look and listen to some of the compelling political commentary being produced on this network.

Thank you for tuning in and joining the conversation,

Next week BTR Political Bloggers Debate Top Issues LIVE!

Ever wondered what it would be like if debates were unplanned and actually measured the debaters’ abilities to argue their respective sides? It seems the rhetoric that politicians deliver during the debates is always so stiff, not at all spontaneous or reflective of their knowledge and ability to think on their feet.

That’s why we are kicking off Bloggers Debates at Debate Central here on BlogTalkRadio. The idea is that two bloggers will square off on a few key issues, coming at them from their unique perspectives. Two of the topics will be mutually decided upon ahead of time, each for ten minutes, and the last third of the show is a wild card. Yes, the third topic of debate will be one hundred percent unplanned, coming from listeners, callers, or emails.

Which better bloggers to begin with than James Boyce of Heading Left and Smoking Politics, and Ed Morrissey of Captain’s Quarters and Heading Right? James contributes to the Huffington Post and is former Senior Advisor to John Kerry’s campaign, while Ed blogs at Captain’s Quarters, an incredibly popular politically Conservative site, and has interviewed Mitt Romney and John McCain for BTR among many others.

These two politically active and opinionated hosts will go head to head on Debate Central. These two very informed and passionate bloggers and BTR hosts will be tackling Fred Thompson’s impact on the Republican race, Bill Richardson and his plan for Iraq, and taking your calls for the final ten minutes of the debate. Get those topics ready!

Please make sure to let us know how you liked the event. We’d love your feedback so we can best bring you many more debates between the top political bloggers in the coming weeks!

Due to scheduling issues, the first official Bloggers Debate has been rescheduled for next Thursday June 21 at 7:30pm EST. Mark it down in your calendars! You won’t want to miss their intellectual arsenal, especially with an extra week to prepare!
