The Community Newspaper Group and Brooklyn Independent Television’s “Debate Week” began with a barn-burner on the BCAT TV Network — and you can watch it right now by clicking above!.
The podcast includes a spirited forum, with all the candidates for the 33rd District seat: Isaac Abraham, Ken Baer, Doug Biviano, Ken Diamondstone, Steve Levin, Jo Anne Simon and Evan Thies.
The taping last week featured lots of fireworks — including moderator Gersh Kuntzman, the editor of The Brooklyn Paper, needing to nearly physically restrain Diamondstone as he hammered Simon on a question about gay marriage — and is certainly going to make for great TV.
“Debate Week” continues all week with these other candidate conflagrations:
• City Council District 39 (currently held by Bill DeBlasio): This debate was set to air on Tuesday, Aug. 18, but like this debate, it’ll be available online starting on Wednesday. Click back!
• City Council District 45 (currently held by Kendall Stewart): Wednesday, Aug. 19.
• Comptroller (featuring Yassky, John Liu, Melinda Katz and David Weprin): Thursday, Aug. 20.
• Public Advocate (featuring DeBlasio, Mark Green, Norman Siegel and Eric Gioia): Friday, Aug. 21 (repeated on Tuesday, Aug. 25).
All cablecasts are at 9 pm and will be available online roughly 24 hours later.
