Scott Simon was at it again this Saturday, playing the devil's advocate for the Republican party. He had Susan Page of USA Today on, trying repeatedly to get her to say or admit that Charles Gibson's question to Sarah Palin was a gotcha question. To her credit she refused to take the bait.

Scott is trying so hard to earn himself a better paying job in the mainstream media that he is quickly becoming a full fledged shill for the Republicans. Can anyone remember Scott's foray into television a few years ago when hosted some show on PBS that failed miserably? I really enjoyed the break from having to listen to him on Saturday mornings. But alas, all good things must end and he returned.

I noticed they were as cheerfully calm and calmly cheerful as ever this morning while addressing the financial tsunamis swelling up all around us today. No need to alarm our dear listeners. Wouldn't want them to rush out in a panic and start another bank run or stock sell-off.

It looks as if Vincent Bugliosi has been blacklisted by NPR since his book has been released about prosecuting Bush for murder. I searched NPR's website using their search tool, and can find no reference to Mr. Bugliosi since last year. NPR program hosts just LOVE to interview authors of new books, usually, don't they? In Bugliosi's case, he doesn't even get mentioned, let alone get interviewed. I'm not sure how long this can last, though, since there is a woman running for AG in Vermont whose platform includes appointment of Bugliosi as a special prosecutor. I bet NPR will avoid this topic as long as they possibly can, hoping no none will notice.

Here's a link to an AP story today about the Progressive Party candidate for AG in Vermont....
