Thank you!

I am a regular listener and find that this podcast is my go to for hearing both sides of an issue. That is not easy to find anymore, especially in cable news when the networks ( any of them) seem to be more concerned with ratings than balanced information.

Jan 6

Howard love your podcast but please lose the Jan 6 over analysis. It’s getting ridiculous. The hearings will not move the needle and it’s showing your bias which you usually hide pretty well.

How can you even suggest that a cross examination would not matter? Our entire justice system is based on a fair trial. This has been as far away from fair as you can get.

You have lost me as a listener until you stop this ridiculous story line.

CNN is Calling

I used to enjoy this podcast and his weekly TV show because Kurtz took a balanced view and served as a fair minded constructive critic of the media. Over the past couple years he’s become more of a liberal cheerleader who no longer focuses on the media as much as he applauds the Democrats and everything they want to accomplish. It’s been two years and he still has a horrible case of Trump derangement syndrome. If he doesn’t get back to normal soon, he should leave Fox and join Chris Wallace on a channel where people will embrace his liberally biased perspective.
