AC360° Radar for July 17, 2008

Lisa Ort
AC360° Producer

Here’s a look at some of the stories on our radar for tomorrow:

RAW POLITICS: Sen. John McCain is holding a town hall meeting in Kansas City.  Sen. Barack Obama has no scheduled events. 

UP CLOSE:  Todd Bentley used to be an obscure preacher in British Columbia. He is now heading the largest faith healing revival in North America. He says people are cured of horrible diseases every night at the revivals. But is Bentley really causing excessive harm instead? Seven nights a week, under a huge tent in central Florida, thousands of people are showing up to witness what they believe are miracles.  Other preachers are warning their flocks to stay away from Bentley. 

ISSUE #1: Al Gore gives a speech on energy & climate change.  The speech, according to Gore’s office, will offer a new way of thinking about energy production and consumption.  It will propose a means of tapping America's innovative skills to build a more secure energy future

ESTABLISHING A MODERN POVERTY MEASURE HEARING: House Ways and Means Committee’s Income Security and Family Support Subcommittee holds a hearing on “Establishing a Modern Poverty Measure.”

    Obama will not show up for town meetings. Whenever he speaks he contradicts himself and sounds stupid and naive. I can't wait till the debates start, so I can watch Obama crumble

    Hello 360,
    In the spirit of "Keeping Them Honest," it's time for your program to keep the man honest who was the most outspoken critic of Don Imus for his "nappy-headed ho's" comment. That's right, the good Reverend Jesse Jackson apparently likes to use the "N-word." So, please put the good Reverend through the same public humiliation and scolding that your network subject Don Imus to during "Rutgers-gate."

    Mr. Anderson,

    Will you please explain to me how Article 51 works and how it will affect the next president?

    I'm so glad they are looking into the 'modern poverty measure.' my best friend is disabled and only 42. She had 5 or 6 epileptic seizures in one night causing a stroke and permanent memory loss. Her disability cannot be seen, but it exists. I couldnt imagine living on what she is and then she is above the poverty level! It is ridiculous. She cant even afford the regular visits to her doctor. I hope they look at these types of factors when discussing the issue.

    Also, i had seen a report that said Louisiana's Governor, Bobby Jindal, was a possible VP running mate. OMG. I seriously hope that isnt true.

    Gore's speech should be a good one. I hope 360 will cover it. If we can identify and develop usable alternative energy sources especially for our cars just think how much that will help not only the planet but our economy as well.
