On April 12,2012 this morning you read a quote from Mike Wallace on journalism. Is there any where I can find that quote. I wanted to write it down, but between the time I heard it, and the time I got to pen and paper... I couldnt remember it. . I think it was approximately 800. It may have been earlier, on "the takeaway", but Ill try you first. Thank you.

Doris Kearns Goodwin. Poster girl for plagiarism. Why dont you create a special segment featuring Mike Barnacle and DKG, and call it "The WGBH Rehab Project"? Of course, the underlying problem is that DKG has nothing interesting to say to begin with, which is no doubt why she resorted to plagiarism over and over again. But it is really a disgrace for you to force a great historian like Eric Foner to be in the company of a rank fraud like DKG, commenting on a subject to which Foner has devoted a lifetime of serious and distinguished effort. Shame on you.

You presented a story on the Greek statistics service. I will present you with this statistic every time I listen to such a story the closing remark is always that one needs to comply with the outside forces, whether that be "Europe", technocrats or a socalled "independent" service. You can prove me wrong by going through your transcripts. In the particular piece you presented absolutely no data or methodology for deriving the two deficit estimates. So if one is right and the other is a fraud, why are your listeners to believe that the halfway point is the correct solution?

I was listening this morning. You were talking about Mitt Romney being a front runner and Gingrich moving up, but one thing was obvious, you did not mention Ron Paul. I have seen news casters from ABC, FOX and CNN openly say they refuse to use his name and report on him, even though he constantly wins straw polls, debates even when only allowed 90 seconds of a 90 min debate and I notice you are doing the same thing. The only reason to manipulate peoples perception is that you have been bought out by the the backers of the other candidates. All the respect I have had for your station is gone. Im 46 years old, very well informed, research things all the time from all resources available. I just wanted to share my disappointment with the corruption of what I thought was a honest representation of the American people, your radio station

On your show one of the questions asked was "how valuable is the African American" vote? I say its worthless, the African American vote gave us Obama? AND what has Obama given us? minus those who blame the rain on Bush, Obama has been in power almost FOUR 4 years what has HE done? exactly? Furthermore, AFrican Americans claim they are not brainwashed, but how is this so when they almost to a man voted for Obama, DESPITE his lack of experience, suspicious senate voting record was somehow absent on all the really important votes, and rather shady pals? Including attending the "church" of the minister whose most famous saying was "Goddam America" Not all brainwashed, please. The only other alternative is they have no brains to be "brainwashed" but just enough capacity to check the right box they are told to check...pathetic.

We need to understand that Osama bin Laden is 99 irrelevant today. The issue in Afghanistan and Iraq is not fundamentalist Islam, but OIL. We are not in either country to establish democracies. We are there to create enough social stability to control the production, flow and export of oil by, to and from mostly American oil companies. So when will the 5th estate, the public media, finally start exposing this dirty little secret that is still making those top 10 wealthiest Americans more wealthy, meanwhile protecting their ability to pay little or NO taxes when all their "investment deductions" and "trust fund" manipulations are applied? Cmon, lets get real! The current trend of redistribution of wealth and our oil obsession will turn into social upheaval in this country that will surpass the 60s. When? next year? 2013? 2015? soon.

The interviewer of Paul Rudd should be ashamed of herself for not doing her homework. She completely downplayed the significance of the original French film Le Diner de cons which was first produced as a play. It is considered one of the greatest French comedies of all time. Even worse, there was no mention of the brilliant Jacques Villeret who played the French equivalent of Steve Carells role. He played the role over 600 times in his life in the theatrical version and the film version.

Kerry Healy hit the nail on the head this morning!
Michael commented on Morning Edition on 03.30.10
Kerry Healy puts a lot of blame for the cost of healthcare on the old Republican canard of malpractice claims. Doctors dont do lots of procedures for defensive medicine, they do lots of procedures because thats how they get paid by insurers. Malpractice premium rates are driven primarily by available investment options for premiums. Insurance generally is like a battery the premiums are invested continuously as a hedge against payouts. When there are poor investment choices premiums go up regardless of loss experience. Malpractice tends to be difficult to prove because of the way doctors and hospitals defend against it. I think the ability for doctors to apologize for errors is a good idea. But I dont think capping awards is good or necessary option.
