Wild Times: TWT, NPR, PBS to Co-Host Debate

  • SHARES

What do you get when you cross the conservative TWT with the progressive NPR and the objective PBS?

No doubt, strange bedfellows.

The trio will host a nationally televised GOP presidential debate on March 19. The hosts also include Oregon Public Broadcasting and the Oregon Republican Party. Perhaps in the future a publication writing a story about itself should be called a press release. For now, we’ll explain it like this: TWT President Thomas McDevitt told TWT, “Our partnership with PBS, NPR, Oregon Public Broadcasting and the Oregon GOP to sponsor an RNC-sanctioned presidential debate is an ideal way to exercise such muscular journalism.”

Moderators will be a three-person panel that represents print, radio and TV.
