    'pundit' TV shows are programming filled in bywhoever the network chooses, this is Maher's show and he can do as he pleases and it's not a pundit show either

    •  So Mr Maher makes the same choice TV Execs do (2+ / 0-)

      As I said, that there are contrasting viewpoints is part of the basic formula for a talking head show. Mr Maher's show is no different that scores of others in this regard.

      Just think of the great intellectuals of our day: Chomsky and the late Howard Zinn come to mind.  Any time Chomsky talks even the biggest auditorium will be SRO.  But TV?  I don't think I have EVER seen either of them on TV in North Carolina, or heard them on radio for that matter.  

      For someone like Greenwald to make it onto the airwaves is a major achievement, and shouldn't be underestimated.  The censorship is out there, wiping clean anything that threatens to disrupt our cushy little womb of US power.
