Elliott Spitzer sucks. Last night as democrats were rejoicing in the clear Biden smack down of Paul Ryan, Mr. Spitzer did all he could to poison the water. As Cenk welcomed the audience back from the debate you could clearly see his enthusiasm. He was smiling and rejoicing and then threw it to Mr. Spitzer who said
"Were you watching a different debate than I was?Then he proceeded with the hand-wringing and legitimizing of Paul Ryan's arguments and you could see the mood in the studio deflate in a manner of seconds.
Now I will admit, I had low tolerance for Mr. Spitzer and quickly changed the channel, which brings me to my point. Elliot Spitzer is doing Current TV no favors. For 1, he is just a plain boring host. I can never watch his program for more than a few minutes. His voice is unappealing, his cadence is mundane and I can't image he's popular with women.
He may be a good litigator but TV is not his cup of tea.
But what's worst his in the middle of a presidential election is not the time for liberals to undermine democrats. That's what you do in primaries. Republicans seem to understand this (now).
Current's coverage of the VP debate didn't do democrats any favors. If this was CNN or CBS I wouldn't bother with this diary. But Current is clearly leaning left and supposedly a friendly place for democrats. Democrats don't need friends like Elliot Spitzer.
If Current wants to grow, they need to replace Elliot Spitzer.
