One more question...... (Political Discussion)

Why do all the hosts on the talk shows talk over people they are interviewing? I use to learn so much from them. But now I miss so much because I have to turn the channel constantly. And that white haired lady today that kept saying “ah”, often three times in one sentence.

IMO, the people they are interviewing should just answer the question as it was asked, but often they go off on a tangent and start arguing with the host/s. The hosts only have so much time and then they are signaled to go on to the next subject or guest so if they want to cover the subject, they talk over their guests.

Wow! Suzie Q, my wife agrees 100% with you. Maybe I am the only one that thinks this way.

It IS very annoying. I'm usually doing something in the kitchen or with my client, so just let it be. If I was actually concentrating on what they are saying, I would probably change the channel, too.

You probably mean if you had a 3rd or 4th hand too. ;-)

Just be very careful about singling out the white haired ladies, Mister!!! ;-)

Thanks. I don't get cable so miss out on all of that stuff, but there's quite enough on regular channels and definitely more than enough online.
