I’ve got a question for you. Kid and I have disagreed in the past when he’s said here in comments that FOX should can the liberals and stick with conservatives … I’ve argued with Kid that I am proud that FOX has shown two sides (way more open minded than the liberals, as usual) and thought it was good. But I DO NOT anymore.
I’m starting to watch CNN more and more (can you BELIEVE that?)…at least they keep good guests on for more than just between commercials “then on to the next story!” like FOX does. At least they’re not always talking over each other at CNN. I rarely agree with them there, but a few of their staff are not that bad and some are even beginning to ask Democrats the hard questions in interviews.
MY QUESTION IS THIS: What if FOX dumped their liberals and went to longer interviews, featuring articulate Conservatives taking time to explain, not just sound bytes like it is now….really explain, really outline future plans and why they might work, etc etc. Rather Wm. Buckley-esque….remember his insightful, deeply plumbed interviews?
Do you think FOX is better off staying with showing both sides of so many subjects like they do now or do you think they should dump the libs and have 100% good, Conservative talk? Particularly before the elections this coming year, by the way……I wonder if even moderate lefties would be more inclined to tune in to see what’s being said, what solutions are being offered, if they knew it wasn’t going to be only a “lefties are terrible and never right” kind of thing. Of course, they ARE, and they aren’t, but…(smile)
