      one high and low through John King's house for years and haven't come up with one yet.  

      Maybe Amy Goodman.  I'd surely tune in to hear that.

        great journalist. I am not so sure she is the pitbull type interviewer we need for these times.
        The one who come closest may be Lawrence O'Donnell.

            From 1989 to 1995, he was a key legislative aide to Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan.[4] From 1989 to 1991, he served as senior advisor to Moynihan. From 1992 to 1993, he was staff director of the United States Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, then chaired by Senator Moynihan. And then from 1993 to 1995, he was staff director of the United States Senate Committee on Finance, once again under Senator Moynihan’s chairmanship. He thus led the staff of the Senate's tax-writing committee during the consideration of President Bill Clinton's first budget, which Congress enacted in the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 199
            It would be grand theater to see him interview Cantor.

      back in the seventies or eighties.
      Back when 'sixty minutes wants to speak with you' or 'Dan Rather wants to speak with you' were the seven scariest words a politician or business exec could hear.

      Out of the night that covers me, black as the pit from pole to pole I thank whatever gods there be, for my unconquerable soul!
