I’m a long-time listener — since CNN days. I credit you for waking me up politically, and I’ve learned more from you about history, politics, economics,. . . than from any other single person. And this is what I learned from your interview with Senator Ted Cruz today
You’ve been encouraging us all to vote our conscience. And you’ve been telling us that if that means we don’t all agree, that’s OK. I’ve been wrestling with that, and I still am not completely certain what I will do.
But that idea kind of went out the window today when Senator Cruz’s conscience reached a conclusion that was different from yours. As the interview progressed, I was aware that your tone was getting more and more annoyed and edgy. Ted Cruz was becoming the cooler head in the conversation, and it seemed to be irritating you.
Then you got to the last question of the day — the one you claimed would cost you $20,000 because you were choosing to cut a commercial in order to give time to the question — “did Ted Cruz’s campaign sell their email list to the Trump campaign?” That question was completely unnecessary because it had nothing to do with whether or not Senator Cruz should vote for Trump. It had everything to do with the fact that Cruz was rising to the top in your conversation, and you apparently needed to end the interview with one more negative thing.
I came away very disappointed. And one word kept coming to mind — snarky.
