Wednesday: Confirmation hearing on the nomination of Jeh C. Johnson to be Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security
On Wednesday 11/13 at 10am (EST), the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee will hold a confirmation hearing for Jeh Johnson to be Secretary of Homeland Security.
I am told by a colleague who is in a position to know, there’s a good chance the hearings will be carried by C-SPAN and (for maybe part of the hearings) by some cable news outlets.
I did not see the Johnson hearings on the C-SPAN schedule for Wednesday. But that could change.
At 10 am on Wednesday, C-SPAN 1 is scheduled to show the House of Representative’s Morning Hour, “during which members speak on a variety of topics.”
C-SPAN 3 plans to broadcast the 10 am House-Senate Conference Committee Meeting on the Fiscal 2014 Budget. Fairly significant.
C-SPAN Radio scheduled its flexibly generic “Public Affairs Programming” in the 10 am slot. So, who knows.
I thought Al Jazeera might be interested in broadcasting views about the (probably) next Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. They have something called “News” scheduled for 10 AM Wednesday, meaning “Live, breaking and in-depth news coverage reports on America and the world for an American audience. Human-centered reporting reveals how events affect Americans and the interconnectedness of people across the world.” Again, who knows.
My colleague said the hearing will be streamed from the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee website. As of Monday night, I did not see any information about streaming on the Committee site. But Monday was, after all, a federal day off for a lot of people. Maybe tomorrow.
If the hearings are broadcast or streamed, I‘ll do liveblogging of the event on this site.
