    I haven’t checked in here for some time since I thought it was getting boring, but the last handful of posts are really good quality so I guess I will add you back to my everyday bloglist. You deserve it my friend.

    Tamron Hall embarassed herself. No wonder she is working at MSNBC.

      I just moved into a really old house and none of the bamothors have vents. the paint is starting to peel in the bathroom that we shower in and I'd like get vents installed (even though the room has a window that we crack). Who would I hire to do this? An electrician?? Any help would be much appreciated!

    What drives me nuts is Cnn is so quick to jump on a network they fear. Why don't they look at the fact that Romney swears he doesn't remember this incident. Doesn't remember? He is insulting al our intelligence and this network is crying about a person's mike being cut off. A person who will lie in your face should make us all tremble. The fact the Cnn doesn't see it as a problem with this should make us all tremble. No wonder we went to war and this network sat silent. They need their license revoked for perpetrating a news network.

    Howard missed completely the reason for Tamron's anger. It was justified. I get tired of these people that are asked to respond to a specific issue, but change the subject by blaming the media. The story is out there about Mitt Romney and fair game to ask about. That's what Howard missed that these folks engage in diversion, and everyone is sick of it.

    I rarely agree with Tamron Hall on anything but I think Mr. Herbert's comment is at least half-right. Hall's beef seemed to be – assuming her version is accurate – that she and Tim Carney had an agreement that he would talk about the merits of the accusations about Romney, and not about the media spin, a separate point. If that's true, the he pulled a fast one on her.
    Not a matter of Dems versus Repubs, but more a matter of what happens when a hack from either side feels the need to defend rather than discuss.

    Howard, you completely missed the point of Tamron Hall's confrontation with Tim Carney on Friday. Carney was apparently asked to be on the show to comment on Romney's handling of the assault on his fellow student years ago. Instead of discussing this topic, he did what he so often does–launching into a diatribe of how biased the media's coverage is (especially MSNBC's), rather than addressing the topic.

    She made it clear that this was unacceptable and, when he continued down this road, she did exactly what she should have done. She cut off his mike. This is what the media should do more often when Republicans venture off into these ridiculous and unwarranted attacks, intended to distract attention from the issue.

    Three cheers for Tamron Hall. I'll bet people who come on her show from now on have some respect for her ability to keep the discussion moving and not be sidetracked by loudmouthed, poorly informed "experts."
