We can hardly wait for MSNBC host Chris Hayes to sweep back into Washington for what is sure to be a bouncy, boisterous affair. Hopefully he’ll have busloads of Uppers and his perpetually unknown guests and will have worked on his people skills so that the masses can understand him without a thesaurus. Hayes has been known on FishbowlDC for our series entitled “I’m a writer Goddammit” as well as “I have a staff Goddammit,” his spanking white sneakers and more.
Hayes and other libs will partake in the “Take Back the American Dream” conference from June 18 to 20 at the Washington Hilton.
Journos and pols we can expect: Paul Krugman, Nobel Prize-winning economist and NYT columnist, Rebuild the Dream’s Van Jones, Rep. Keith Ellison, Democracy for America chair Howard Dean, Sen. Bernie Sanders, MSNBC’s Alex Wagner, Chris Hayes and Melissa Harris-Perry, Katrina vanden Heuvel of The Nation, Robert Borosage and Roger Hickey, co-directors of the Campaign for America’s Future, and more.
The conference will offer free conference registration for reporters, bloggers and producers. To register, visit here.
