Just Howard

Would be a five star rating if you would get rid of Mannix and just have Howard only on both days

Howard Beck needs to leave

The fact that Howard Beck compared all of Bill Russell’s amazing civil rights work to Colin Kaepernick’s buffoonery and thirst for media attention shows he is not a serious journalist. He just wants to pander to his audience. Beck insulted all great civil rights leaders when he compared Kaepernick to Russell. Beck needs to get off this show or just shut up. One star because of Howard Beck. Keep your social justice crap out of it.

Unprofessional Beck

Beck routinely makes arguments that contradict themselves within a single sentence. Get Mannix a new partner, although he is a clear cut Boston homer, he is professional and Knowledgeable. Beck has been an irrelevant clown living off an NYT rep that was undeserved a decade ago let alone now.
