Welcome to my show, “Viewpoint with Eliot Spitzer,” which offers a nightly opportunity to take a deeper look at the day’s news — from politics to Wall Street, civil rights to sports — with guests who are experts and thought-leaders in their fields.
As New York’s former attorney general and governor, I relish debate. I won’t shy away from giving you my view, but perspectives from all sides will be welcome on “Viewpoint.” Far from an exchange of talking points, debate on the show will serve a greater quest to find the facts that inform.
Whether taking a CEO to task for passing the buck on the 2008 financial meltdown or talking with political strategists to get behind the campaign rhetoric, I hope you’ll find “Viewpoint” thought-provoking and illuminating. My experience as a prosecutor will guide me as I ask incisive questions and demand real answers, and my tenure as New York’s governor will inform my analysis of the 2012 race.
So please join us every Monday — Thursday at 8/7c on Current TV, as we get tough on Wall Street, track the economy and map the political landscape to discover exactly what it all means in real-world terms.
