  •  I am not arguing against Nye here (12+ / 0-)

    He did a great job.
    I agree on how he framed his point of view. But I don't need convincing from him as I know he has the facts on his side.

    No, I am arguing against the fact that Blackburn's pov and opinion was taken as a serious piece of this issue and given too much credibility and deference by Gregory.

    I am arguing that Gregory as a journalist also framed the "debate" that often made Blackburn's points for her. He presented her pov as a reasonable piece of discussion on this most serious issue.

    Nye was not the issue...he was fine and I watched the whole thing twice. Gregory respectfully framed her side and pov as reasonable and valid. It isn't and he shouldn't have IMHO.

    I guess, ymmv in watching these shows. You and I disagree
    On just how effective it was. Nye was effective advocating his pov.  But the others side which IMHO is just freakin nuts, came off as reasonable due to Gregory's reasonable and sincere debate frame. If people were on the fence I don't think minds were changed based in his deference to the krazy pov.

    Government of, for, and by the wealthy corporate political ruling class elites. Elizabeth Warren Progressive Wing of political spectrum.
