FYI: CHOMSKY (1st time ever U.S. TV?) 3-hrs, C-SPAN2, NOON today (EST)


From: David Combs
Subject: FYI: CHOMSKY (1st time ever U.S. TV?) 3-hrs, C-SPAN2, NOON today (EST)
Date: 1 Jun 2003 03:04:19 -0400

FWIW: Noam Chomsky: 3hr interview at NOON-EST (+6pm, +Midnight)


Off subject, for sure, but since this guy seems to
be "persona non grata" in U.S. media (although much
seen & heard elsewhere), if you've ever been curious
about him, here's maybe your one and only chance to
see and hear him, *ever* (at least in *this* country).



Even if you're on the mid or far right, you might want
to at least tape the program; maybe a spouse or other
relative or friend might like to see it someday.
Likewise, *you* might "ought" to see it, if only to
better understand the intricacies, strengths, and weaknesses
of the other side's thinking, or for plotting against.



NOTE: this is on C-SPAN2, not C-SPAN ("one").

Pretty much every cable system gets C-SPAN (during the week,
  covers the "House").

Unfortunately, not as many also provide C-SPAN2 (during the week, 
  covers the Senate).

"Booktv" is what  C-SPAN2 calls its weekly weekend-bookprogram, 
consisting of 48-hours of book-discussions, each one led 
by the book's author(s), and usually an hour long.

(As you'll note from the schedule below, many if not most
of the books come from "the right".  Their having Chomsky
is unusual, to say the least.)

Every week or two, they'll interview one author "in detail",
for three hours, and they chose Chomsky for this weekend.

The schedule below says the three-hour interview will be at noon
today (Sunday) (E.S.T.), til 3pm (live, I believe), then repeated
at 6pm (they say til 8, but being three hours long, it must
really end at 9pm?), then once again at midnight, til 3am.

To verify that the scheduled-times haven't changed, check out
C-SPAN2's "booktv" web site, either directly, at www.booktv.org
(click on "schedule"), or get there via c-span2: www.c-span2.org,
and click on "booktv".


----- CALL-INS:

According to the (very) long blurb down below, for the noon to
3pm show, you can phone in with questions & comments, or email
them; perhaps they'll even use C-SPAN's usual two-phone-number
scheme, one for the "left", one for the "right".
