How far we've sunk
I don't watch Washington Journal on C-SPAN every day, but I do check in fairly often. One of the great virtues of C-SPAN to me is the strong attempt to show all sides, liberal, conservative and every flavor thereof. But in the last few years, I've noticed how many of the callers on Washington Journal no longer believe this. They are totally convinced that the OTHER side owns C-SPAN and is spinning everything in their opponents direction. Nothing convinces them otherwise. When challenged about this, people seem to feel it is evil that anyone who feels differently from themselves deserves a right to speak at all! Madness! It's no wonder people can't seem to work out their differences.
