UM and FIU Students Debate-Not Another Football Brawl





U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich will open and close the first of a new series of debates called “We the Students,” which is being organized and aired by Cleveland’s Open Student Television Network, said OSTN CEO Prashant Chopra.


The debate will air live at 10 a.m. Sept. 10 at and on the company’s 24-hour channel of student-produced content, which it delivers to more than 4,500 colleges in 46 countries via ultra-fast networks..


Students from the University of Miami and Florida International University will debate how private enterprise affects American defense, and viewers will be able to chat with the moderator, vote for their favorite debaters by cell phone and even pop in by webcam.


Rep. Kucinich, a Democrat who represents Ohio’s 10th District, is the only presidential candidate who has agreed to host “We the Students” so far, but OSTN is working to secure a Republican for the next installment, Mr. Chopra said
