Ryan Seacrest to Interview Joe Biden on the Radio

Does Ryan Seacrest have a liberal bias? Maybe he's gunning to be the next Matt Lauer. On his national radio show, Seacrest announced he'll have Vice President Joe Biden on his show on Monday. Seacrest's online announcement lists the other significant political leaders he's  interviewed include the late Ted Kennedy, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Barack and Michelle Obama, and Bill and Hillary Clinton. Politico noted that despite this left-wing list, Seacrest tweeted on Tuesday: “Throughout 2012, I'm welcoming political leaders from all points of the spectrum.”

Seacrest touted how "the Vice President has been touring the nation holding Town Hall meetings in an effort to discuss the administration’s efforts to educate students on how to make college more affordable and student debt more manageable." He added Biden told students in Florida, “A college education is almost a prerequisite or a ticket to the middle class. It’s also a prerequisite if we’re going to lead this world again.”

On Monday’s episode of “On Air with Ryan Seacrest,” Biden will join the program to answer questions submitted by college students about subjects like financial aid, jobs, and the economy at 7 am Pacific time (10 am Eastern).
