About those Sunday morning chat shows....

I don't know about you but I am so tired of the right-wing chat shows, David Gregory on MTP, Schaefer with Face the Nation and George Steph on whatever his shows name is, I forget for the moment. Their guests are almost always repubs and it's time for that to stop. I'm not sure what we can do other than write, e-mail and just annoy them constantly but it's time for the George Wills, Peggy Noonans, Cokie Roberts and the rest of the right-wing spewers to be replaced.

The President has won his second election, the Democrats are the leading party of the land, it is definitely time for them to have command of the memes or whatever else you want to call it. I'd go one step further and get rid of Gregory, replace with Maddow or some other Dem who knows how to conduct a conversation on those points of interest to us...

1. I don't want biased interviewers; I want objective, honest ones.

That means people who do not slant either left or right. It is not useful to have hosts on those shows who skew the conversation in either direction. Maddow, etc., are editorialists. I don't want an editorialist, even one whose views I agree with, moderating these shows. I want someone who will ask insighful questions, hold the guests' feet to the fire, and add something besides ideology to the discourse. We shouldn't want to "command the memes"; what we should want is more honesty and objectivity.
