Out of the Senate and Into the Squawk Box

Update: I just did Squawk Box and will post my impressions in a bit. In the meantime, you can check out some clips from the show here. I'd love to hear what you thought of the show. Please post your reactions in the comments section.


I spent Wednesday afternoon in DC, taking part in a Senate hearing on the future of journalism, organized by John Kerry, chairman of the subcommittee on Communications, Technology, and the Internet.

I was joined by Google's Marissa Mayer; James Moroney of the Dallas Morning News; Steve Coll, former managing editor of the Washington Post; Alberto Ibarguen of the Knight Foundation, and The Wire creator David Simon.

I have to admit, my favorite moment of the hearing came when Sen. Maria Cantwell of Washington, during her questioning of the panel, said she likes reading HuffPost on her BlackBerry and held it up.

You can check out my opening remarks and an exchange I had with Sen. Kerry here.

Now it's off to New York, where I'll be guest hosting CNBC's Squawk Box Thursday morning 7 am - 9 am EDT. Among those I'll be interviewing: Eliot Spitzer, Elizabeth Warren, GM CFO Ray Young, Yale economics professor Robert Shiller, and economist Simon Johnson. I'd love to have your help deciding what to ask them. Please post your suggested questions in the comment section of this post.
