: I've been disabled lately so I have a chance to watch more television than the average ten people do. The formats that are shown are so infuriating in the political forum because just when a guest is making a relatively intelligent point, the host has to brake for commercial and when the show comes back, the host changes the subject altogether. However Carl Bernstein was able to make an interesting point on Topic A with Tina Brown. He discusses the problems between what is truth and what is not and how they are reported on Talk Radio and Talk TV.
