Well, now that Congressional democrats and republicans have “reached a fundamental agreement on a set of principles,” according to Sen. Chris Dodd, the networks would surely like to know if the debate is still on.

FBN_9.25.jpgThe news of the deal first crossed on the business networks at 12:54pmET. FBN was first, followed a few seconds later by Bloomberg, Fox News Channel and CNBC. CNBC was first with the video of Sen. Dodd making the announcement at 1:00pmET.

We should know more about the debate after the 4pmET meeting at the White House which will be attended by both candidates McCain and Barack Obama.
