CNN’s Roland Martin Continues Series of Candid Political Discussion
Martin, Panel of Middle-Class Americans Hash Out Struggles for ‘What They’re Not Saying. . . About Your Money’
As Americans count down to Election Day, CNN contributor Roland Martin will host his second special in a series examining the various issues driving this election. The special titled, “What They’re Not Saying. . .About Your Money,” airing this Saturday, Sept. 20, and Sunday, Sept. 21, at 8 p.m. (ET), will examine what it means to be middle class in America.
For the special, Martin will talk to a panel of Americans who are currently facing a crisis with housing, health care or the job market. CNN’s senior business correspondent Ali Velshi and Capitol Hill correspondent Jessica Yellin will join the conversation to help viewers understand what is going on with the economy and what the candidates, government officials and political experts are – and are not – saying about the economic issues people face in their everyday lives.
Martin's first special, “7 Weeks to Go,” explored how age, race and gender have played a pivotal role in this election and whether bias – instead of the issues – could be a deciding factor on Election Day. The program topped the cable news competition with 1.2 million total viewers and 360,000 viewers in the 25-54 demographic.
A third Roland Martin special, “What They Didn't Say. . .In The Debate,” will air on Saturday, Sept. 27, at 8 p.m. (ET), the day after the first presidential debate. This post-debate program features Martin and panelists discussing what the candidates did not address, and CNN's viewers will have the opportunity to respond. This special will re-air on Sunday, Sept. 28, at 8 p.m. (ET)
