Announcing CN Live! A Weekly Current Events Webcast Beginning Friday on Consortium News

Consortium News announces the launch on Friday of a weekly webcast news show as a successor to the Vigils for Assange that will also delve into other pressing issues of the day.

CN Live! will air every Friday from 2 pm to 4 pm U.S. Eastern time and can be seen here streaming live on Consortium News as well as on our YouTube Channel, our Facebook page and on Periscope. It will also be archived on those platforms.

Besides the latest news on WikiLeaks and Julian Assange, our panel will discuss the coming U.S. presidential election, the Middle East, East-West relations, U.S. foreign policy, climate change, media, domestic and international politics and more.

On our premiere edition, Francis Boyle, international law professor, will pick apart the intelligence and political machinations behind the arrest of financier Jeffery Epstein on sex trafficking charges; Marjorie Cohn, professor emeritus of law, and former U.S. Senator Mike Gravel, a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, will discuss the Democratic Party primary battle; As’ad AbuKhalil, political science professor, will analyze the latest developments in Syria, Iran and other parts of the Middle East region; and George Szamuely will join hosts Joe Lauria and Elizabeth Vos to dissect the latest news on Assange and WikiLeaks.

Join us Friday at 2 pm EDT for CN Live!

    Over the years, I’ve developed a deep respect for Consortium News. So glad you are starting your own multimedia platform. Good luck!

    As the curtain rises, and you move from opening on the road to opening simultaneously on the West End AND on Broadway, I’m calling to you from the wings,”Break a leg!” ??

    This country needs an honest alternative to the criminal media. If it’s a news show and not too deep in the woods for casual news watchers, this could really help!

    To the Muckrakers of Consortium News;
    Your ‘CN LIVE’ announcement is music to my ears. I will pass this on to all of those contaminated with the Clinton-Deep State
    narrative.
    Thank you for this endeavour,
    A CN member Jennifer Ortiz

    A podcast would be great for people who don’t have time to sit and watch.

      The audio of the show will be available as a podcast.

    • July 11, 2019 at 13:39

      I heartily agree!

    JFC, get a youtube channel. You guys could build a huge audience. As a died in the wool far-lefty, I appreciate the viewpoint of consortium as a legitimately independent voice, but you guys are running a solely text based opperation and a webcast without a major platform will fall flat. GET A YOUTUBE CHANNEL. it’s not 1990 anymore.

      Nevermind. You did.
