C-SPAN School Bus to visit the Truman Presidential Museum
The Truman Presidential Museum & Library is proud to sponsor a visit by the C-SPAN School Bus. The 45-foot motor coach, a traveling TV production studio and media demonstration center, will visit our community on its continuing tour to America's schools and cable systems. We have arranged for the Bus to stop at the Truman Museum in Independence on July 18 from 11am to 3 pm.
The American cable television industry created C-SPAN in 1979 and C-SPAN 2 in 1986 as a public service. Since then, the C-SPAN Networks have provided viewers with a window to the public policy process. The public affairs programming found on the C-SPAN Networks is presented without commercials or commentary and includes live, gavel-to-gavel coverage of the U.S. House of Representatives (C-SPAN) and the Senate (C-SPAN2); congressional hearings; White House, State Department and Pentagon press briefings; National Press Club speeches; insights into Supreme Court decisions; unique book programming; international public affairs events; and live viewer call-ins with journalists and public policy makers.
All of the programming produced by the networks is commercial-free and copyright-cleared for educational use. We are proud that our support of the C-SPAN Networks makes these programs available for use by our local educators. Visit the C-SPAN web site at www.c-span.org for more information.
Please join us on July 18 to meet the C-SPAN staff, tour the Bus and learn more about the cable industry's public service network.
