One of the fundamental principles of FOX news, is that any dumb ass can make valid criticisms of experts even if they know nothing about the subject. Lauren sounds like she prepared for this interview by hitting the bong.

Given her musical background, I can imagine an interview like this with, say, Joshua Bell -

"So, Mr. Bell, as a violinist you're clearly biased against trombones.  Why is that?  What gives you the right to criticize brass instruments?"

That makes sense, she's definitely able to sing from Fox's sheet of music.

At least Couric could get the ball over the plate, and still managed to strike out your girl friend Sarah. This bubble head asked the same question over and over again, failing to recognize that the guy had given her a very good answer.

I heard an interview with the author on NPR, and it sounded like a good book.

I bet Lauren is equally outraged that Christian Karen Armstrong wrote books about Jesus, Judaism, Buddha, AND Muhammad. She was a nun for christsake!!!

The NRA doesn't seem to view Couric as a light weight. Check out how they portray her in some of their propaganda. Scroll down to page eight.

It's one thing to mock Michael Moore or Rosie Odonnell's looks but you're really grasping when you have to mock Katie Couric's appearance.

Tough questions are fine, but she didn't ask tough questions, she asked stupid questions.

Couric is irrelevant.

I've seen a couple of other interviews with this author, and I think that this book is going to be very popular. After reading this, review Reza Aslan’s Sweet Revenge. I'm looking forward to RangerSvens review, I'm sure he was there to get a signed copy.  :;):

You got it wrong. Fox are the drunks, MSNBC are the bong hitters and CNN are just plain on meth...

Are there any MSM worth watching these days? Does anyone report news anymore or is it all just opinion pieces?

You know just because a network has lower ratings than FOX doesn't therefore mean it has
low ratings. Did you know that MSNBC back in the early part of last decade had a conservative
tilt up until former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann started to host COUNTDOWN? Then switched to a
more progressive lineup which got them higher ratings even if its not on the same league as FOX

The implication is that adding a conservative voice would help MSNBC yet their ratings
, once again, were lower when they were conservative.

Now too forgone in which way? Too liberal for you? I will add that MSNBC has a Morning
Joe  which is a Monday through Friday show and he is a conservative republican. There is
no Monday through Friday show on FOX that has liberal Democrat hosted their own show
or at least you can't tell.

To classify them ALL as '.Sensationalist propogandhis" is ironically Sensationalist propaganda in and of itself
