Ajit Pai is on NPR right now and Kai Rysdall is gently trying to call him out on his shit. It's kinda funny. Also frustrating because he's incredibly full of shit.

The "gently" part is one reason why I no longer listen to NPR.

I've randomly remembered an interview last week on Morning Edition where Jonah Goldberg from National Review compared Trump to an escaped lab monkey from a cocaine study. It was pretty great

I prefer it most of the time. Let's them book guests who wouldn't agree to be on a show they perceive as hostile. It wasn't so much gentle today as it was in the tone of a professional journalist. Last week they had some piece of shit House member on who was pretty much just spouting Trump talking points in the most obnoxious way he could. That guy could have used a polite "Shut the fuck up." That was not a good interview
