Debating the debate today at 11 a.m. PDT in a Google Hangout here at Politics Now will be Los Angeles Times business columnist Michael Hiltzik and conservative columnist Charlotte Allen.
The video discussion will cover all the high- and low-lights of the 90-minute debate between Romney and Obama. Will Romney’s win have legs, or was it a victory of style over substance? What are the fact-checkers saying about the veracity of the two candidates' claims?
Hiltzik is the Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist who frequently has found fault with “trickle-down” economics and nostrums for federal social programs like Medicare and Medicaid. His column appears twice weekly in The Times.
