From Green News DC:

Two National Public Radio interviews with Cynthia McKinney this week:

• Wednesday, Oct. 22
Ms. McKinney will be interviewed by Neal Conan on NPR’s Talk of the Nation, 1-3 pm ET. We’re told the segment with Ms. McKinney will begin about 2:40 pm ET. This will be a call-in show.

• Saturday, Oct. 25
Ms. McKinney will be interviewed on NPR’s Weekend Edition, hosted by Scott Simon. The show begins 8 am ET, and we’ve learned that her interview will take place about 8:10 am ET.

Recent interviews with Cynthia McKinney archived online:

• Cynthia McKinney’s Sunday, Oct. 19 interview is archived online and can be viewed at (

This interview was originally intended to be an online forum featuring several alternative party candidates, but the other candidates who were invited missed the event because of confusion caused when a different forum was scheduled to take place at the same time at Columbia University, which was subsequently canceled. Ms. McKinney had earlier confirmed her participation in the broadcast, and followed through on her promise.

The organizers of the canceled forum at Columbia have announced another forum, to take place in Washington, DC, on Thursday, Oct. 23. Despite the organizers’ claims of confirmation by the candidates, Ms. McKinney has not been consulted on her participation in the Thursday forum or on ground rules or other parameters of the event. We’re urging members of the media to regard announcements about the Oct. 23 forum with some caution.

• Cynthia McKinney was also interviewed on Thursday, Oct. 16, on Democracy Now! following the final McCain-Obama debate, from which she and other alternative party candidates were excluded
