Clay Aiken – A Roundtable Host

Did you have a chance to see Clay Aiken on Wednesday morning?   Salon Talks hosted a roundtable moderated by Clay Aiken.  He discussed the debt ceiling, congress, and Trump’s first 100 days.  He was joined by Carrie Sheffield and Amanda Marcotte.

The almost 60 minute discussion was very informative and all three of the speakers were knowledgable and were not afraid to challenge each other.  As the moderator, Clay tried to give each side the same amount of time and made sure that they didn’t talk over each other.  Overall, I enjoyed the show and I hope Clay has another opportunity to be a part of the Salon family.

So…what is Salon and why is it exciting to see Clay on this program?

According to their website:

Salon is a progressive/liberal website created by David Talbot in 1995 and part of Salon Media Group. It focuses on U.S. politics and current affairs.  Salon has has left wing bias through reporting and wording, but can be trusted to source to mostly credible information.

In addition to politically commentary, Salon also covers a variety of topics including reviews about books, films and music; articles about modern life, including relationships and sexuality; and reviews about technology.

Salon also publishes about 15 new articles per day.

Salon has  grown and has an amazing audience that clicks on their site.  According to Quantcast Demagraphics, a site that specializes in audience measurement and real-time advertising:

  1. reaches over 8.0 million monthly people… 6.0 million (77%) are in the U.S.
  2. In the last 30 days, it has had 25.3 million Global views.
  3. More men visit Salon than women

I also checked their social media sites:

  •  Facebook = 962,441 Likes
  • Twitter = 974K Followers

This was not the first time Clay was on Salon.  On February 10, 2014, Salon posted a great interview with Clay titled:

Clay Aiken talks John Roberts, jobs and why he’s running: The Salon interview

Written by Josh Eidelson, the interview is excellent.  You can still read it at SALONINTERVIEW

On August 18, 2016 Clay and Carrie Sheffield were on Salon Talk together.  The topic was  Clay Aiken on Politics and Fame.

Carrie and Clay talked about the up-coming election for about 30 minutes.



I hope that Clay enjoyed his visit on Salon and I hope he will be on again soon.

 And, who knows, he might just write an article for the website!
