Rep. Ted Deutch Discusses Energy Innovation Act On CNN, PBS

Average Rating:

5ec54e321ac169bdca5c051ecc34ef03-huge-deOn Memorial Day, CNN and PBS aired an interview with Rep. Ted Deutch and journalist Christiane Amanpour, in which they discussed climate change, bipartisanship, and the Energy Innovation Act. CCL arranged this interview and Rep. Ted Deutch is the bill’s lead sponsor, so we definitely want to celebrate this media appearance.

Clips of the interview are posted on CCL’s Twitter, Instagram, and will soon be on Facebook. Please like, comment on, and share the posts on any platforms where you’re active.

You can also watch the full segments on CNN or PBS.

Thank you for supporting the Energy Innovation Act’s lead sponsor in this high-profile interview!

Great job by Congressman Deutch. Christiane Amanpour is a very good interviewer, but it's unfortunate that she used the misleading attack from Food & Water Watch as an example of reaction to the Energy Innovation Act from "the left wing" of the Democratic Party, when in fact 14 of the bill's 41 sponsors are members of the House Progressive Caucus! But Rep. Deutch did a splendid job of responding and framing the benefits of this legislation for the CNN audience.
