  •  Her show is all about giving equal time (9+ / 0-)

    to "both sides", as if there is actually equal merit to both sides of every flippin issue. To be fair, this may have more to do with her managers and the politicalization of Public Radio. Even so, I find I have no patience to listen to the idiotic back and forth bullshit of partisan bickering.


    It has always seemed strange to me...The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. - John Steinbeck, Cannery Row

    •  I wouldn't have a problem with "both sides" if (2+ / 0-)

      1) It were truly "both sides", and
      2) The people representing "both sides" were actually required to tell the truth, or face being banned from the show.

      But as far as Rehm and most other Villagers are concerned, "both sides" means a center-left (e.g. E.J. Dionne) and a hard right (e.g. Charles Krauthammer)

      And I can't tell you how many American Enterprise Institute lies I heard, only to hear them invited back over and over and over again.

      No accountability, at all.

    •  I agree, I don't want to listen to idiots argue. (0+ / 0-)

      I want real meat and potatos reality for what this really means. I mostly turn off the sound when a stupid blowhard goes into a BS rant instead of real facts being stated. Let the people who just want to argue "what if's" no mater what the reality go argue with their little selves. Sometimes there is some real insight into 'Well he said, she said' but when the conversation goes rant, I'm outta there going to another station, getting on the web instead or muting.

      Constitutions should consist only of general provisions; the reason is that they must necessarily be permanent, and that they cannot calculate for the possible change of things. Alexander Hamilton (1755-1804) Just A Real Nice Guy, thinking out loud.
