Well, better then FNC But not happy about WSJ. Neil Cavuto will be a moderator. Neil is Libertarian. I like the savy business sense of Maria Bartiromo . But I want to know why they didn’t chose Charles Payne, Lou Dobbs or others? Personally I would have liked to see Eric Bolling. But he’s FNC now. Even Hannity was willing and we know whether we care for him or not that he is a diehard Constitutional Conservative.
The debates will focus on the economy (Not like CNBC) and be presented live from the Milwaukee Theatre in Milwaukee, WI, on FBN and FOXBusiness.com. Which many folks do not get this channel. They should also air it on FNC in my opinion.
The primetime debate will start at 9PM/ET and include the top candidates earning 2.5 percent or higher, as determined by the four most recent national polls. Moderated by FBN’s Managing Editor of Business News Neil Cavuto and Global Markets Editor Maria Bartiromo, along with WSJ’s Editor-in-Chief Gerard Baker.
The remaining candidates will be invited to participate in the 6PM/ET debate, which will be moderated by FBN’s Sandra Smith, Trish Regan and WSJ’s Washington Bureau Chief Gerald Seib. Both debates will focus on jobs, taxes, and the general health of the economy, as well as domestic and international policy issues.
FBN announced the entry criteria as follows:
Must meet all U.S. Constitutional requirements; and
* Must announce and register a formal campaign for president; and
* Must file all necessary paperwork with the Federal Election Commission (FEC); and
* Must score 2.5 percent or higher in an average of the four most recent national polls conducted through November 4th, as recognized by FOX Business to participate in the 9PM/ET debate. Such polling must be conducted by major, nationally-recognized organizations that use standard methodological techniques (i.e., live interviewers, random digit-dial sampling techniques and include both landlines and cell phones).
Remaining candidates scoring below 2.5 percent and hitting at least 1 percent in one of the four most recent national polls conducted through November 4th, as recognized by FOX Business, will be invited to participate in the 6PM/ET debate. Such polling must be conducted by major nationally-recognized organizations that use standard methodological techniques (i.e., live interviewers, random digit-dial sampling techniques and include both landlines and cell phones.
On Tuesday, November 10th, coverage will kick off at 5PM/ET with a special edition of Lou Dobbs Tonight featuring pre-debate news and analysis with host Lou Dobbs leading up to the 6PM/ET debate. Dobbs will then toss to Regan, Smith and Seib as they commence the first debate, which will run from 6:00PM-7:30 PM/ET, followed by another special edition of Lou Dobbs Tonight (7:30-9PM/ET).
The primetime debate will begin at 9PM/ET, following which, Cavuto will anchor a one-hour special edition of CAVUTO: Coast to Coast live from the Spin Room at 11PM/ET. At midnight, John Stossel will host a special edition of Stossel featuring the Libertarian reaction to the debate with a live studio audience.
