The editorial board’s television debut

Every year, we invite proponents and opponents of ballot measures to our office to state their case. This year, TVW got in on the act, asking us if crews could shoot some of our sessions. We jumped at the chance to show you all a little bit of how we do our jobs.

Below, you’ll find the footage from our Tuesday sessions. The first is our interview of Initiative 1053′s backers and foes. Tim Eyman couldn’t make it, but the Association of Washington Business came instead to explain why voters should (again) require a two-thirds vote of the Legislature to raise taxes. Next up was both sides of the I-1107 debate, which squared off on the question of repealing the taxes on candy, soda and bottled water that lawmakers used to balance the budget this year.

The interviews will air on TVW starting Monday at 7 p.m. You can check TVW’s schedule here.
