    I would have stipulated conditions on your terms.  That you must be allowed to speak and complete your thoughts and must not be interrupted or you would have gotten up and left.

    Or you could have asked that equal time be part of your appearance.

    Fox is truly a propaganda right arm of the GOP.  They care not for facts.  They are 1001% political and they are a massive tool of misinformation to their base.

    Like Dr Dean......We should and must always try to show up and educate for The MSM will not.  The rightie media mega echo chamber will Not.  The left have very little Visually or on air.....radiowise to drump the beat of Liberalism.  Hence the problems today.

    Once again, I want to thank Mr. Gaba for his awesome factually based data that he single-handedly engineered to keep folks informed, motivated and energized as We cheer you on.

      Offering conditions as you suggest for his appearance, but they would have just said that they do not grant such requests or simply declined to have him on.  Better off just to say, Thanks, but no thanks.

    •  That's such a tempting thought (1+ / 0-)

      Just as tempting to go on without preconditions, then state before saying anything else, here are the rules:  If you talk over me, you are deemed to have lost the point.  If you spout a statistic without real source, you are deemed to have lost the point.   If you hurl an argument without allowing me to respond, you are deemed to have lost the point.  If you change the subject, you are deemed to have lost the point.  If you Gish Gallop, you are deemed to have lost the point.

      If you cut my mic, you are deemed to have lost the debate.

      You would, of course, be talked over, subject-changed, Gish-Galloped and mic cut before getting half way through the list.  Short interview.  But fun
