Lou Dobbs Offers Uninterrupted Airtime to Presidential Candidates

CNN Pressroom - CNN’s Lou Dobbs has put forth an unprecedented offer to the presidential candidates—two minutes of uninterrupted airtime to address the substantives issue facing the country.

In a series, “2008: Time for Answers,” Dobbs will invite presidential candidates to appear on Lou Dobbs Tonight to explain specifically how they would tackle the most pressing issues facing American families including healthcare, illegal immigration, public education, the war in Iraq, border and port security, and trade policy. A candidate would be granted two minutes for each topic, followed by discussion with Dobbs on that issue. CNN’s Lou Dobbs Tonight airs at 6 p.m. (ET).

“People want to know about a candidate’s positions on issues that affect their lives, not just fundraising and horserace politics,” Dobbs said. “I welcome a substantive dialogue in this important election season, and I believe our viewers will too.”

Dobbs is an award-winning journalist and bestselling author of Exporting America and War on the Middle Class.
