Shout out to Eugene Robinson! [View all]

Last edited Fri Mar 25, 2022, 10:07 AM - Edit history (1)

Was listening to MSNBC on they way to work today and Joe had Bob Woodward on discussing the reporting he and Costa have done on the Thomas/Meadows sedition. Pretty good discussion until Bob starts talking about what needs to be done and goes into his both sides shtick. I was listening on the radio and couldn’t see Eugene’s face, but apparently he was looking at Bob like he was speaking in tongues. When given his chance to rebut Woodward, Robinson was having none of it, and laid out how claiming that the left was guilty of wanting things only their way was a false dichotomy when it comes to overthrowing the government. Pretty much stopped Woodward in his tracks.

Wish more talking heads could be more like Eugene.
