Can someone please explain to me the reasoning behind Night Talk's election coverage last night?
In the first half hour, the Conservative talk show host Mike Pintek talked to Conservative Republican Bill Green about the election. Then in the second half hour the Conservative talk show host Mike Pintek talked to Conservative Republican (and former mayoral candidate) Joe Weinroth and Democrat Jim Burn (Chair of the Allegheny Democratic Committee) about the election.
Glad they decided to have on at least one person with a "D" beside his name (what, no Democratic or Republican women were available??) to talk about the election in this predominantly Democratic city - even if it was just the guy claiming "no machine politics" in Pittsburgh. But geez guys, he was one out of the four!
And if you chop it up by time, it was even smaller than that. He was only one third of the conversation during last half hour.
It's amazing how low John McIntire's old show has fallen.
