Al Gore to Lead Current’s Debate Coverage

Al Gore will lead Current TV’s coverage of next week’s first presidential debate, presiding over a panel that includes Jennifer Granholm, Eliot Spitzer, Cenk Uygur and John Fugelsang.

Gore also led the network’s coverage of both political conventions. Current said that its coverage will include analysis, “instant alerts regarding campaign spin,” and fact-checking via social media.

Running along the side of the screen will be Twitter streams specific to topics and swing states, as well as to categories of users, like media figures, celebrities and team Obama and team Romney.

The first debate will take place on Oct. 3 at the University of Colorado in Denver.
