Long time on and off listener

I used to listen without fail. However, the tone during the recent change of administrations made clear a bias, as did the particular drumbeat created during COVID-19 (note the odd outsized # of appearances by Scott Gottlieb. He is a smooth talker for sure but how is it that he managed to get such a regular spot?)

Ms. Brennan is a star, to be sure - best interviewer in the ecosystem of policy-centered journalists. However, being based in Washington has a negative impact on the show in addition to the positive. I wonder how the line of questioning might change if, say, Ms. Brennan lived outside of Charlotte or Houston. Yes, she has access by being DC-based, but DC is a bubble - a good one in many ways, but a bubble for sure.

Now that COVID is in retreat take the show on the road. Go to the middle of the country. See what happens. You’d be surprised. (Don’t assume you know how you’d be surprised. The assumptions are your bias talking)

Get out of the air-conditioned offices, out from behind the computers, and start rubbing shoulders with folks. Let go of team members who shoot the snarky remarks off camera. We know these folks exist because of the tone. It’s not a bad tone, but could serve a wider audience if it was less overtly “DC”.

Disappointing - June 5 show

The questions to Sen. Toomey were reasonable with appropriate follow ups. Mayor Lucas and Congressman Schiff seemed as if they were being interviewed by one of their staffers and Prof. Stevenson by one of her grad students.

This obvious bias only energizes the extremes in our political discourse, both on the right and left. I would like interviews with tough but fair questions and am disappointed Face the Nation did not deliver.
