  •  You are far nicer than I. (15+ / 0-)

    I diarrhea'd on this issue, too, and while we covered the same event, our analysis differs.

    I thought a pet rock would be an improvement over Gregory, so any positive change was positive. But I was not impressed by her.

    I did like the mix of guest in the beginning. I guess they took off the Whites Only sign at the entrance.

    But the last half was mainly fluff, and there, Andrea shone as she could rub elbows and rumors together like . . . Tea and scones.

    What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.

    •  Thought about posting his #3 as a comment (10+ / 0-)

      in your diary, glad I didn't. While yours lamented that she only spent 30 min. on #Ferguson, James hit some pretty strong points on what she DID do in that 30 min., things that I'd never have guessed Andrea was capable of.

      •  At best it was half a ritz cracker, (5+ / 0-)

        Low sodium, with no topping.
        Hell, this is a huge, future-impacting event, which perfectly lays out some of our society's worst ills, and this show was the perfect opportunity to take that issue and run with it.

        Andrea failed. Perhaps she and her staff did not have time to be prepared. After all, they only had a week's worth of stories and video, and the knowledge that Gregory was gone as of Monday. Perhaps Gregory's staff was unused to dealing with real issues. Perhaps the NBC rudderless leadershit was afraid of dog a real news story on this.

        Perhaps.  But she wasted a great opportunity, especially with some smart, fresh, and knowledgable new faces.

        And then she brings on her BFF. Harmon to talk Hillary and slightly touch on a few other issues? Bah.
