Jill Stein and Rocky Anderson Will Participate in Democracy Now!'s Live Broadcast from Denver on October 3; Debate Interface Planned

The first Commission on Presidential Debates event this year is at the University of Denver, on Wednesday, October 3. The Obama-Romney debate starts at 7 pm Colorado time and runs 90 minutes, and covers domestic issues.

That same evening, Jill Stein and Rocky Anderson will appear at a Democracy Now! live event at the Central Presbyterian Church, 1660 Sherman Street, Denver. Amy Goodman will host. The audience will see the Commission on Presidential Debates on a screen. After the first question has been asked of President Obama and Mitt Romney, and their answers have been received, the church audience video of that debate will pause, and Stein and Anderson will also answer whatever question had just been asked in the CPD Debate. Then, the church audience will then see the next CPD question (which, of course, is no longer live, because of the delay) and the process will continue. Here is a link to Democracy! Now’s web page about the event, which does not mention any other presidential candidates. The Green Party publicity about this event says that Gary Johnson is also participating, but this appears to be incorrect.

The CPD debates will heavily impact on Denver residents. Interstate highway 25 will be closed to traffic for six miles through downtown Denver, from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. This is for security, because the arena in which the debate is being held is very close to the highway. OccupyDenver’s web page says a protest of the CPD debate will be held at 5:30 pm at McWilliams Park, E. Yale Avenue and S. Steele St.

    What would it take to get Johnson and Goode to participate?

    This is the visual we need, of these 4 candidates answering the questions put to the other 2.

  2. I’m with #1, even if it is a made up name (and a disgusting one at that).

    What’s disgusting about a large mushroom?

  4. Gary Johnson is doing his own commentary on a Google Plus Hangout http://tinyurl.com/Oct-3-Online-Event

    What about candidates of the Socialist Party, Freedom Socialist Party, Peace and Freedom Party and Party of Socialism and Liberation?

    Don’t Stein and Anderson (not much difference there) want any real competition?

  6. Stream our special 3-hour show on the Democracy Now! livestream or tune in on television on Link TV (DISH Network Channel 9410 or DirecTV Channel 375) or on Free Speech TV (DISH Network Channel 9415 or DirecTV Channel 348).

    The actual location of filming Rocky and Jill has been moved to a closed television set.

  7. As President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney square off in the first presidential debate in Denver on October 3, Democracy Now! will broadcast live from Denver with a special expanded presidential debate from 8:30 to 11:30 p.m. ET.

    We will air the debate, pausing after questions to include equal time responses from two presidential contenders who were shut out of the official debate: Jill Stein of the Green Party and Rocky Anderson of the Justice Party.
