Slowly a Congressional debate is taking shape for this Saturday evening between the two Republicans competing in the June 26 primary.
The Dean of North Country Journalists....John Moore...says he has been asked to moderate and WDT scribe Brian Amaral is a panelist. I might suggest reporters from the dailies in Plattsburgh and Glens Falls be ask, as that would make it more of a districtwide event.
The problem so far....venue...OMG, with all the empty rooms, someone cannot be community spirited enough to make space at the inn. Heck, they can hold it at the Mayor's Bar if all else fails.
Sunday's US Senate debate on YNN proved that television studios make great venues. The cameras and microphones are already there.
Liz was host of the YNN inquisition. She was showing a lot of leg having come out from behind her Capital Tonight anchor desk. Maybe she is contemplating a move to Fox News.
As for John Moore, he is clearly the most debonairre anchor in NNY.
If this thing doesn't come off due to lack of venue, the mandarins of local broadcasting should be run out of town on a rail.
