    I love to watch your show, but due to my work schedule miss many episodes. So my question to you is ,have you been noticing what Chris Matthews is alluding to more and more often–he seems to be bringing up the "race card ". Just tonight in the discussion with the former mayor of Oakland and another panelist he actually asked if they thought the question of Eric Holter might have a racial component to it (paraphrasing here)! I know his show is about his opinion, but I really think he is sinking below all journalistic standards and simply trying to stir up trouble.

    I notice that the media is not showing video of reporters interrupting President Reagan while he was making statements.
    There is tape of White House reporters shouting out questions to Reagan about Iran/Contra right in the middle of his comments.
    Also, if we want to look at rude reporters, look no further than Helen Thomas and Sam Donaldson, both of whom had obvious dislike for Republican Presidents.

    Don’t worry about the way we treat American Presidents. Thanks, Republicans for setting the standard… never will a President get respect again…I am cheering for the next republican.

    Long time viewer but first time commenting. Howard you have a great show but you were just as rude to the Iraq War reporter by cutting him off and clearly blaming him for going to war as the reporter who cut off Obama. Our vets and our reporters deserve better. Have him back.

    Where were you in the 60's and 70's? LBJ and Nixon got great treatment by the press?

      Thank you, Dani! After hearing your trianing last night, I realize one of my biggest problems is focus or lack of it. I have struggled with it for a very long time, but realize that in order to achieve what I want, I have to learn to focus on ONE THING, not many things/ideas, creating the chaos of di-vision. Thanks again! Love you! Bless you!
