| Posted 07.20.2007 | Huffington Post

Would you like to be a part of the CNN/YouTube debate in Charleston, South Carolina on Monday night? Join the Off the Bus "Truth Squad" and you'll have two ways to attend: In person, or virtually. Join the Truth Squad to hold the politicians, CNN and other journalists accountable by signing up here. Here's the game plan: on debate night, we're going to fact-check the candidates, the questions selected by CNN, and assertions made by major journalists in the post-debate commentary. We need dozens of you to sign on to the Truth Squad to make this work. We'll work together via email, online chat and telephone during and after the debate.
