CNN and National Journal to Host ‘Politics on Tap’ with Sen. John McCain

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 15.41.52Look out BuzzFeed Brews. There’s a new beer drinking news platform in town.

CNN and National Journal are joining forces to explore the midterm elections the best way possible…with a cold one in hand.

Dubbed “Politics on Tap,” the program will feature an interview by CNN’s Chief Washington Correspondent Jake Tapper and NJ’s Ron Fournier of Sen. John McCain followed by a panel discussion with CNN’s Peter Hamby NJ’s Michelle Cottle, and CNN’s Brianna Keilar on the growing divide in the Republican Party and how the changing face of the GOP and Congressional leadership may impact this November’s midterm elections.

Slated for next Thursday at Sixth Engine, the invite (which hasn’t gone out yet) is a steal in that a-the topic is definitely interesting and b-who doesn’t want to drink with this crowd. Only thing that could make it better is if Rep. Aaron Schock were involved.

We’ll be there, and hope to see you there, too!

See the invite – sans RSVP dets (sorry) – after the jump. Cheers! Read more

Edward Klein’s Latest Blood Feud the Topic of Much Scandalous Conversation

51GMqv8vJYLIn June, Regency published former New York Times Magazine editor-in-chief Edward Klein‘s latest Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. The Obamas, on the “rocky” relationship between the Obamas and the Clintons.

The New York Times bestseller list on Monday positioned it above Hillary Clinton’s Hard Choices in the category for combined print and e-book nonfiction for July 13, 2014.

Business Insider has been in touch with someone close to Clinton, who said that, “there is no bigger liar in the entire world,” to describe Klein, who in 2005 authored The Truth About Hillary: What She Knew, When She Knew It, and How Far She’ll Go to Become President.

In June 2005, FishbowlDC reported that Jay L. Clendenin, a photographer who’s work was included in the 2005 book, said that Klein misrepresented former President Bill Clinton in a photo he took that was cropped. Read more
