MSNBC will air a town hall meeting with Bill Cosby & Michelle Bernard. Will you watch it?
In addition, it will have Alvin Pouissant of Harvard, Ben Jealous of the NAACP, and others.

The topic is poverty.

Bernard has put this together.

Will you be watching this?

1. Lord, no ...........
Edited on Thu Sep-17-09 08:05 PM by Tangerine LaBamba
A bogus "academic" with pretensions of expertise; a woman so in thrall to the rightwingnuts as to have eclipsed any "expertise" she might have had, if, in fact, she ever had any.

Alvin Pouissant is terrific, but I'll read what he writes instead of watching the show.

No, I'll pass......................................

9. He stopped being relevant with the end of the Fat Albert stuff.
Even his teevee show was far too preachy for me.

8. Notice that last name - Rickie Silberman. She was a BIG wingnut. Along with Barbara Olson, they ....
.... started this ill-named IWF.

Bernard (married to CNN's Joe Johns, by the way) is lower than whale shit in my book. She makes my skin crawl with her oh-so-middle-of-the-road schtick.

4. Maybe if there's nothing else on
especially on a Saturday or Sunday it would be a break from their awful lock-up shows.

7. Michelle Bernard's IWF is claiming more women will die of breast cancer if health care is reformed.
