Go Martha Raddatz!
Give the woman her due and title this show what it is: this week with Martha Raddatz. I think I’ve only ever heard two episodes hosted by George Stephanopoulos. Martha does a great job and should be acknowledged as the main anchor person that she is.
Loyal Listener Disgusted by Roland Martin’s Rude and Sexist Behavior
As a loyal listener of This Week, I’ve grown to expect respectful, enlightening discourse on the expert panel. That was not the case this weekend.
In particular, Roland Martin brought a mix of vitriol, sexism, and party hackery, that drove me to turn off the podcast. In all my years, I’ve never seen a panelist attack two other panelists personally. It was rude and uncalled for.
Making matters worse he repeatedly talked over and interrupted one of the female panelists. Won’t ever watch another episode he is involved in.
My Sunday ritual consists of morning coffee, breakfast, and this week with George and the crew. I love how this show takes everything that was news worthy throughout the week and puts it into a 1 he show/podcast. I also appreciate the Democratic and Republican responses and George’s ability to challenge both sides. Love Martha and George!
