Tampa, Florida, Friday, October 31, 2008: Socialist Presidential candidate Brian Moore will appear on nationwide television for the third time this week. He will be hosted on the Washington Journal of C-Span, from 8:00 AM to 8:30 AM out of the WEDU television studios in Tampa, Florida.
Moore, the Socialist Party USA presidential candidate, plans to respond to the continuing controversy over Republican John McCain's accusation of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama "being a socialist." Furthermore, Mr. Obama's reference to his "spreading the wealth," has generated discussion of whether Mr. Obama meant to implement "socialist policies" as well.
The recent bailout by the Bush Administration, and the U.S. Congress, of Wall Street banks and financial institutions, has also generated controversy of whether the federal government will be nationalizing financial institutions and taking a "socialist bent for the future," Moore reported.
Immediately after his appearance on the C-Span show, Moore is scheduled to be interviewed live by a Houston, Texas radio station during rush hour drive time in Houston. This will be Moore's third invitation to the morning show invited by Radio News Director and Producer Roger Hudson of Radio KTRH 740 AM in Houston, Texas.
Later in the morning Moore will be connected to a conference call around 10:30 AM, from his Spring Hill headquarters, with Palm Beach Reporter and Florida Atlantic University Professor Frank Cerabino. The reporter/instructor teaches a senior citizen class every Friday morning of 250 participants, on the topic of "Elections" and especially this national presidential election.
Moore will address the seniors' concerns about socialism, and how their health care would be affected if the country or a new government transforms a national health care system that is socialized (i.e. Would the seniors be affected in their access to medical services now available to them?).
The Socialist Candidate is also expecting the national television network, "CNN Headline News," to air throughout the day, its Thursday telephone interview of Socialist candidate Moore by reporter and correspondent Richard Lui of the Robin Meade "Morning Express Show," which airs from 6 AM to 10 AM on CNN, plus Lui's own program from 10 AM to 11 AM, Monday through Friday.
If CNN Headline News does air the interview Friday or Saturday, Moore will have completed a week of appearing on four national programs: the Neil Cavuto Show last Thursday on Fox News, the Colbert Report Comedy Central Program in New York City last Tuesday, the C-Span interview Friday morning, and a CNN interview, also expected this Friday.
In addition to the TV appearances and television interviews nationally, Moore was also highlighted over the past week in national publications by author John Burns of The Nation magazine, Katherine Marsh of The New Republic magazine, Laura Olson of the Chicago Tribune, and by two Tampa area local Hernando County editions of the St. Petersburg Times (reporter John Franks) and the Tampa Tribune (Tony Marrero).
Moore was also interviewed during the week by a political reporter from the Los Angeles Times, and is hopeful an article will appear this weekend in their west coast newspaper on his Socialist Party campaign and the resulting national attention given "Socialism" from all the commotion over this controversial ideology by the two major party candidates.
Moore contends that "Socialism has a rich heritage" in America, and is part of the fabric of our society and culture. He feels that both major party candidates are misleading the nation about socialism. Brian Moore contends that Socialism "is on its way back to re-emerging as the pre-emptive economic system for the future of this country."
