Michael Moore Counts Down to the Election - Today on Meet the Bloggers (1pm ET/10am PT)

Tune into Meet the Bloggers today at 1pm ET/10am PT when our guest will be none other than Michael Moore.  It's rare that we get a chance to have a frank discussion about politics with an activist as celebrated and talented as Mike, who created such documentaries as SiCKO and Fahrenheit 9/11.  And on today's show, I will talk with Mike in a special one-on-one segment about the issues he covers in his new book, Mike's Election Guide 2008.

Also on the show will be bloggers Liliana Segura (AlterNet) and Cheryl Contee (Jack & Jill Politics), as well as nationally syndicated author and blogger David Sirota.  They will chat with host Cenk Uygur about the rapidly approaching election.  And we'll be taking your questions, since you submitted hundreds of text and video questions for Mike in our contest this week.  Remember, the viewers who submit the best questions for Mike will receive a signed copy of Mike's Election Guide 2008, or one of Mike's trademark hats (autographed by Mike!).  This contest is still going on, so get your questions in now! 

We take your questions on Meet the Bloggers because it's your show.  You request the guests, the bloggers, and the issues we feature.  You submit comments and participate in on-line polls through our live blogging section during the show.  And since it's your show, you can help ensure everyone watches by telling all your friends, family, and colleagues to tune in live, watch past shows at meetthebloggers.org, and highlights at bravenewfilms.org.  Post Meet the Bloggers on blogs, and contact your local cable access channels, asking them to run it. 

Spread the word about a show that counters the corporate sponsored Sunday morning programs, which do nothing but tell you what news is important.  Instead, tell them to check out Meet the Bloggers today at 1pm ET/10am PT for a revolutionary way of discussing the issues that matter to you most.
