  •  Amy Goodman - I love her - is a (5+ / 0-)

    great journalist. I am not so sure she is the pitbull type interviewer we need for these times.
    The one who come closest may be Lawrence O'Donnell.

      and not much afraid of anybody.

      Cantor is nowhere near LD's league.

      •  LD has one key advantage over other (7+ / 0-)

        (pretend) journalists in that he actually worked in the system.

        From 1989 to 1995, he was a key legislative aide to Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan.[4] From 1989 to 1991, he served as senior advisor to Moynihan. From 1992 to 1993, he was staff director of the United States Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, then chaired by Senator Moynihan. And then from 1993 to 1995, he was staff director of the United States Senate Committee on Finance, once again under Senator Moynihan’s chairmanship. He thus led the staff of the Senate's tax-writing committee during the consideration of President Bill Clinton's first budget, which Congress enacted in the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 199
        It would be grand theater to see him interview Cantor.
