Transcript: CNN Libertarian Town Hall moderated by Chris Cuomo


CUOMO: Good evening, and welcome to the CNN Libertarian town hall. This is your chance to get to know the candidates behind a party and a movement that's not only alive this election season, but growing.


ANNOUNCER: In the year of the outsider, he's looking for the inside track.

JOHNSON: How about a skeptic at the table?

ANNOUNCER: In a time of big talk, he's promising straight talk.

JOHNSON: I tell the truth. I am not a liar.

ANNOUNCER: To the idea of more government promises, he's promising less.

JOHNSON: Let people make decisions in their own lives.

ANNOUNCER: Libertarian Gary Johnson, running mate Bill Weld, two former governors, one governing philosophy.

JOHNSON: We are fiscally conservative, over the top. We're socially liberal.

ANNOUNCER: The question this year: Can it win the day?

JOHNSON: Understand the opportunity, please.

ANNOUNCER: Or could they tip the race?

JOHNSON: It's your choice.

ANNOUNCER: The unconventional choice in the least conventional race on record facing your questions tonight.



CUOMO: All right. Welcome to all of you who are joining us here in the audience in New York, across the country, and around the world. Just so you know, we're being simulcast tonight on CNN International, CNN en Espanol, CNN Go, and SiriusXM satellite channel 116.

“ROOTS: OUR JOURNEYS HOME” kicks off Sunday, October 12th, with a two-hour primetime special airing Tuesday, October 21st at 9 pm ET

Storytelling is at the core of what CNN does, and in a week-long series beginning Sunday, October 12th, thirteen of the network’s prominent hosts and anchors set out on a journey to find their ROOTS. A project one-year in the making, these journalists embark on an emotional journey across continents as they discover never-before-known details of their family histories.

ROOTS: OUR JOURNEYS HOME will kick-off on Sunday, October 12th at 9 pm ET with a special episode of Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown and will air across the network throughout the week, culminating in a two-hour special on Tuesday, October 21st at 9 pm ET. The following is the broadcast schedule for ROOTS:

SUNDAY 10/12
Anthony Bourdain – (9 pm ET) This investigation into the puzzling history of the Bourdain’s great, great, great, grandfather, Paraguayan émigré Jean Bourdain, serves as a springboard to his first tour of this South American country. In Paraguay, Bourdain explores both jungle and desert land, a rich culture, and savory local dishes that include Bife Koygua, Bori Bori, and Sopa Paraguaya.

MONDAY 10/13
Michaela Pereira – (6am ET on New Day) Michaela Pereira’s adoption journey began when she was very young—just three-months-old in Canada. Although she “hit the jackpot” with her adoptive family, she also knows that much of what you see in front of you—the color of her skin, the curl of her hair—comes from her biological parents. After a brief search years ago led to closed doors, Michaela embarks on her roots journey again—this time not in pursuit of her birth parents, but for the place that her ancestors came from—in St. James Parish, Jamaica.

Anderson Cooper – (8pm ET on AC360) Many people know Anderson Cooper as having come from one of America’s most famous families – the Vanderbilts. But growing up, Anderson was always drawn to the southern roots of his father, Wyatt Cooper. Anderson travels to Mississippi where his father grew up and discovers ties between the poor farming family and the rich Vanderbilts that existed before his parents ever met. FULL POST

State Department: "there’s more that Israel can do to hold themselves to their own standards"

Today on New Day, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told Chris Cuomo that there is no country in the world that has done more to protect and strengthen Israel’s security, but “that does not change the fact that when you have a situation where innocent civilians are killed in Gaza, there’s more that Israel can do to hold themselves to their own standards.”  She went on to say that  “the United States, of all countries, has experienced this in places like Afghanistan.  We’re saying they need to hold themselves to their own standards and do more here in Gaza.”
