In this episode, Jeff and Glenn don’t kick their responsibilities to the curb — they dive right into controversial issues, like the formation of a deficit reduction commission, the far-right primaries against center-right candidates: Rubio vs. Crist in Florida, Hayworth vs. McCain in Arizona. They explain how all this ties together with Sen. Bayh’s retirement, and what it means to the respective parties. They also dive into the emergence of Las Vegas as the political epicenter of the 2010 elections. Other shows boost their ratings by tearing people down, they consider divisive inflamatory rants a placeholder for discussion. We seek to inspire and inform. At PoliTalk you get a refreshingly fun, informative look at issues, not the usual polarizing political rhetoric.

This country has serious problems that we need to address. The media is one of the checks and balances to both educate and provide an independent perspective of what our politicians are telling us. Thank you Fox News and Bill O’Reilly for lowering political discourse to yelling and personal attacks that neither educates nor provides independent perspective.
As a media outlet and a “news analyst”, both parties should take pause and reflect how there actions impact the greater good. In this country, we have a free press, which is one of our greatest assets. This kind of programming is reminiscent more of Wally George and Morton Downey Jr. than news that is “Fair and Balanced” .
What I was looking for was someone to really peel back the onion on some of the statements that Congressman Barney Frank has made. Instead, the conversation devolved into an angry tirade in which no better understanding of the issues came out.
At a time of such need for information regarding our financial crisis, having an interview that was comprised mainly of yelling and personal attacks was truly a wasted opportunity to help the American people better understand the crisis we find oursleves in. — Glenn
