Contemporary World Issues, with Mr. Dobbs

dobbs_10-31.jpegStudents in seven high schools across the country were joined by CNN’s Lou Dobbs yesterday in a live teleconference during their Contemporary World Issues classes.

The Huntsville Times (AL) writes about the experience (via Johnny Dollar).

“Dobbs wasn’t short on opinion, declaring Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, the Democrats’ choice for president, one of the most ‘transformative’ figures in politics, then blasting the national media for what he called ‘great bias’ and unfairness in its coverage of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the Republican vice presidential nominee,” writes Steve Campbell.

High schools in Alabama, Ohio, Texas, Virginia, New York, New Jersey and Wisconsin participated.
