Default Chris Wallace and Jessica Tarlov

This morning, I watched Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace. One of the contributors was Jessica Tarlov.

When Chris Wallace tried to interrupt a filibuster by Ms. Tarlov--in order to get to a commercial break--Ms. Tarlov continued to filibuster. She simply would not yield, until she got in all her talking points.

I found this sort of behavior enormously rude--and, quite frankly, infuriating.

If I had been in Chris Wallace's shoes, I would have pressed the appropriate button, and cut her off. And I would never have asked her back on the program, again.

Note: Ms. Tarlov is a Democrat; but I would have been equally infuriated if she had been a Republican. (Somehow, though, Democrats typically seem less likely to observe the rules of a civil society. I am not quite certain just why that is.)

Jessica is a FOX news "contributor." She often behaves in much the same way but they have cut her off. Especially when her sarcasm laced lies break the rules of credibility. Then there are the times they just let her go and make a fool of herself.
I think this was one of those times.

As for Chris Wallace, he tends to be quite critical of conservative guest yet seems to let Liberals and progressives off the hook. I just assumed this was normal with him. Senator Tim Cotton or Nunes, he would have slammed.


But then they do not behave in the same manner as Jessica.

It sounds like you get yours off of "Facebook"

Clairvoyance , long distance mindreading, intuitions.

Amazing what mental skills you possess.

But in this case, they failed you. Like you used to tell us you only did back in the earlier days of your rabid postings, I get my news from many sources, including the crap that passes for news on the telly.

That said, the telly in my house is usually on the music channel broadcasting light jazz.

Actually, that is not quite correct.

During commercial breaks (if I am watching live--and not on DVR), I often switch to CNN, or even MSNBC.

Sadly, however, these networks seldom (if ever) have on a truly conservative guest.

Perhaps a RINO (intended to represent the Republican position)--but not an actual conservative.

Nope, not liberal, leftist. There is a difference. Salty has long since crossed the divide.

I used to make that distinction as well, honestly I can't see much difference these days.
