Downing Street Hearings on C-SPAN Tomorrow

John Conyers’ hearings on the Downing Street Memo will be broadcast live tomorrow on C-Span 3 and Radio Pacifica. From Conyers’ Blog:

For those commenters who were concerned (or hoping) that there would be a media blackout of the forum, that will not be the case. I have every major network, other than Fox, bringing cameras to the hearing. Nightline is taping the event, which I think represents a welcome development from a well respected investigative program. In addition, C-Span 3 and Radio Pacifica are carrying it live.

If your cable service doesn’t get C-Span 3 (mine doesn’t) you can watch streaming video online here. Hearings will begin at 2:30 ET/11:30 PT at the Capitol (which they managed to wrangle after all — Sensenbrenner evidently rethought the wisdom of asserting his droit du seigneur), and will include testimony from Joe Wilson, former Ambassador and WMD expert; Ray McGovern, 27-year CIA analyst who prepared regular Presidential briefing during the Reagan administration; Cindy Sheehan, mother of a fallen American soldier; and constitutional lawyer John Bonifaz.

Notably absent will be the fair and balanced Fox, who will be busy camped out once again in Karl Rove’s rectum.
