NPR is teh suck

Gad. Hillary gets an interview, but Robert Seigel continually interrupts her. Is he angling for Russert's job, when Timmeh finally bursts from the buildup of internal vapors?

Assholes.

Maybe I'm just irritable because my throat's sore from yelling at the radio when they were running a lengthy version of Bush's statement on his stupid stimulus plan.

But still.

I've got some stimulus for ya right here....

like I said before, how do you get on the Board of Trustees of your local PBS station?

Robert Seigel continually interrupts her

Ya mean like Charlie Rose?

NPR and PBS have bought into the Fox talkus interruptus "technique" of "interviewing".

Hey, howzabout sending packages of Big Fucking Ears to these rude people? (Ears not literally fucking, of course. I mean, please.) Yeah, that's it: Giant Ears, along with a nice note that sez, in it's entirety and in 48 pt. boldface:

SHUT UP, LISTEN, AND RESPOND TO YOUR GUEST'S ANSWER.

It's called a "dialogue" -- you can look it up.

get behind during that interview. She also backed him down and made him let her finish what she had started to say, twice.

Whatever it is with the media that has made them decide to blanket-ignore John Edwards, I think the whole Obama-Clinton "smackdown" is wearing thin -- particularly with the people I thought Hillary might finally be trying to defend today, the people who "shouldn't bear the onus" and "shouldn't pay the whole price" for the giant egg-sucking dog of a disaster that has been the Bush economy.

If we had honest media there'd be no quibbling over the meaning of 'recession' and no cutesy-poo "the r word" on Nice Polite Republicans, and Cokey Roberts would be out on her aging and increasingly irrelevant fanny -- because the big story would be the factual one: we are in a depression, caused by rapacious greed and unregulated chicanery among the "financial geniuses."

No amount of manipulating the math is going to change the fact that had the New Deal protections remained in place, we would not now be in this "sub prime meltdown" or its attendant morass of kleptomaniacal theocratic denial.

Unfortunately, the closest thing we have to an FDR now is NOT Obama, nor is it Clinton, and you can forget the whole clownlike array of Republican vulture wannabes, starting with "change the constitution because you can do that more easily than you can change the word of the Living God" Mike Huckabee, father of dog-torturers, to "I've got to do well in South Carolina, that's my neck of the woods" frail, pathetic, self-caricaturing Fred Dalton Thompson.

We may yet see the end of the Republic wrought on our behalf by Franklin, Jefferson, Washington, Madison, Adams, et. al.

Again:

Exactly. And I haven't heard this said elsewhere. Only at Corrente.
