I reported earlier that Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, who served as Chief of Staff at the State Department the last four years, will be on the News Hour with Jim Lehrer in a fascinating interview with Ray Suarez.
However, I have just heard from the foreign policy producers, and the segment will run TOMORROW, not tonight.
What will run TONIGHT is a hard-hitting segment on Chris Matthews’ Hardball that MSNBC’s David Shuster has assembled that really gets at the big questions regarding Vice President Cheney’s role, if any, in the Plame affair and the circumstances specified in the indictment counts against Scooter Libby.
The Hardball segment will run at about 5:20 p.m. eastern time, and then the show repeats at 7 p.m.
Chris Matthews also has a humdinger of an interview (or maybe the more appropriate word is. . .interrogation) at the top of his show with White House Counselor Dan Bartlett. Should be sizzling.
Also, I will be competing with Chris Matthews at that 7 p.m. time slot on an interesting radio program on Radio Open Source titled “The Muscular Wilsonians: What Do They Believe?”
Other guests on the program with me will be Samantha Power, Derek Chollet, and David Rieff. Should be fun.
I am told that you can listen to the show live from 7 p.m. – 8 p.m. at this link. A downloadable MP3 of the full show will be available about an hour after it finishes.
And if you read German, Stern magazine just put out this interview with Lawrence Wilkerson.
Lot’s cooking. More soon.
