Brian should have told her to go on Democracy Now and let a real journalist grill a fake ass one like Amanpour. When the Sunday shows have on Chomsky or Tariq Ali, then I will be impressed. zzz

Comments to Christiane Amanpour's interview on BL Show:
Exceptional eloquence, inspiring voice, impressive personality.
Her assurance though that Arab youth will achieve the same riddance from tyranny, the Soviet block countries have achieved, is questionable.
I would like to hear her comments when Islamists will take over those countries cheered for their “strive for democracy” Will she have a courage to say Oops, I was wrong?

My thought when I heard Qaddafy say his people would die for him was that yes, he'd make sure of that.

FYI, Brian, "facile" is pronounced |ˈfasəl| — rhymes with hassle.

Love the show but please check the "Moral arc" quote. No slam against Dr. King but I think it should be originally attributed to Theodore Parker, Unitarian Minister.

Seems Americans haven't had enough yet they just sit home concerned about themselves "making it" even with Occupy Everything is in motion, they ignore it and think, "let them do it!". When will Americans get off their duffs and get out with the protestors and protest like the Russians, the Egyptians, the Syrians, the...! Get out there and get those slugs out of office LOUDLY!!!
