More videos about tonight's Republican debate

After I posted about the Republican debate at Oakland University tonight, I went back to bed. I just woke up and looked at my YouTube subscriptions to find videos to follow up on yesterday's entry about austerity being on the ballot and found more videos about the debate. First up, a news report from WOOD in Grand Rapids. Yes, this debate is big news all over the state, including the mostly Republican western half.

Political reporter Rick Albin is live at Oakland University.

This video serves as an even better summary of the issues than the WXYZ videos, which are more about reaction from the sponsors and audience. It reminds me that I'm glad to be subscribed to a variety of news sources in the state.

Speaking of a variety of information sources, both host Oakland University and co-sponsor and broadcaster CNBC are using this event as a promotional opportunity. First up, the host.

Oakland University is the site for the 2012 Republican Presidential Candidate Debate, November 9th at 8pm. Hosted by CNBC and the Michigan Republican Party. Be sure to watch it! And check out more information at
As someone who has watched a lot of university promotional videos, I think this one is pretty good.

Now, CNBC.
