9. Paul was against the war so he made a good anti war guest. Kevin Phillips
who is a conservative used to be on all the time as well, Phillips hates him the whole Bush clan and wrote a really excellent book about them called "American Dynasty" , really detailed and oh so damning.

7. PBS has been inching toward the right for years now.
Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 07:23 PM by AllieB
Ever since Bush appointed a right-wing head of PBS, the content has become more conservative. The exceptions are usually NOW and Bill Moyers.

11. the "Fair and Balanced" media, here's a guide:
Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 07:36 PM by CreekDog
Far right: Fox
Right, but innocuous sounding: CNN
Right except for 1 hour: MSNBC
Center-right: PBS, NPR (these are "balanced")
-as an aside, and ironically, the only time on NPR where SUV's are derided for their pollution is on Cartalk, go figure
Center-Center Left: Air America
Liberal, nonconformist: Pacifica Radio

12. I knew it, there is no left wing
We have a right wing and a floppy dorsal fin that sometimes leans left, sometimes right.

We've had it for so long, we started thinking it was the left wing.

8. what was the context?
I'm sure he wasn't enthusiastically endorsing him, but covering his candidacy because his supporters are so "interesting" ; that's a PBS specialty: Human interest.
You know, midwestern Oddballs, Circus performers, struggling amateur (Fill in the blank) and travelling sideshow geeks and freaks. Also known as Ron Paul's campaign.
