Meet The Press

We know you like it when the hosts get into it and we know you like it when one of them gets triggered by a certain Chief Executive. So –no spoilers!– we think you’ll enjoy the opening segment of today’s Big Show. But stick around, because we want to introduce you to two members of the media we think you ought to be aware of. First up: Alex Berenson, once a card carrying member of the elite media (the New York Times) and now a novelist who does some independent journalism on the side. His work on COVID over the past six months (available on Twitter and on his website  is not to be missed. Then, meet Andrew Beaton, who covers sports for the Wall Street Journal. His no nonsense reporting on COVID and sports and the impact of the social justice movement is not to be missed. But that’s not all: we’ve got a new Lileks Post of The Week, courtesy of  @DoctorRobert  (it’s about oboes). Finally, we lost a great one this week. Well, those of us who were aware  of him did. Guess which one of our podcasters is not really aware of the contributions to the culture Edward Van Halen left us?

Music from this week’s show: Dance The Night Away by Van Halen

    He is lovable, always a great NR host on their cruises, fun to talk to, great sense of humor. I have even had the pleasure of sitting at his table on one of my speaker nights. There is nothing obnoxious about him.

    So he’s different on a cruise than he is on the podcast.

    The podcast comments are only a small moment in time. We get them for seven days on a cruise. No post-election cruise this year.

    Maybe just as well, Rob could be using his fainting couch a LOT in the next few weeks.

    And… more, from October of 2016.  He’s doing better in some of the swing states than he was four years ago.

    Y’know.  If you’re going to have virtual head explosions by drawing your own conclusions about the polls, then chastising everyone for how wrong they are, and never seem to tire of promulgating “if only” scenarios.

    Finally listened to this, and don’t want to go through every comment to see if anybody said “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” was Jonathan Edwards.
