Anyone know a worse talk show host than Phil Donohue? He treats his guests like they are idots (unless he happens to agree with them). I heard his show is going to be cancelled. Evidently there aren't enough liberals in the country to support a liberal leaning talk show.

Doug, I agree with you. For me it has zip to do with his politics and everything to do with his style. He has always driven me nuts. Why anyone brought him back is beyond me.

Aw DougR, are you feeling left out because everybody is bashing yer man Rush?

Frankly DougR, it has nothing to do with Donohue's abilities or style. The progressive left is looking for substance, not sytle, and is intelligent enough not to get their news and information from right wing media outlet's talking head shows, like the one on MSNBC you mention.

In fact, most progressive left people I know don't even watch much television, much less get their news and information from it.

yes, I have to agree this thread is just a lame attempt to get back at anyone who said anything about Rush Limbaugh in the other thread. To set up some sort of dichotomy or parallel between the two of them is wrong-headed...one of them claims to be a POLITICAL analyst/commentator (who osted a talk radio show) and the other a TV talk-show host whose show was generally more interested in social issues...

So does it all come back to you, then? Maybe it just has to do with the fact that Phil Donohue IS a whiner. The man is loopy and paranoid.

May I suggest to you all that the absolute best way to get programming on television to improve is to do what I do: read. I'll make allowances for the sports addicts, they are sick and need their fixes. But despite the Discovery Channel and A&E and their ilk, TV is un-necessary. And all the best bits are at the local video store, anyway.

"despite the Discovery Channel and A&E and their ilk, TV is un-necessary"

Bollox!

Give me more channels, with even less and less on them... I WANT Real TV, and Robot Wars... Wild On and Big Brother... I want the illusion that even -I- could be a PopStar! I want to be able to use Picture In Picture to watch 2 infomercial channels at the same time...

It's the real world now, the information flying through the ether... it's wrapped in plastic, and it smells like Febreeze...

Get used to it, or get out of it...

Donohue was a whiney trendoid when he had his TV show many years ago and he hasn't changed a bit.

Clinton, you are the epitome of what is wrong with our culture. Wanting more TV is bad enough but wanting more of it with a total lack of any meaningful knowledge and devoid of the tiniest bit of redeeming social value marks you as the person you truly are. The programs like Robot Wars and Real TV that you mention are the basest of the base and reach new nadirs of sordid content. BTW, did you see that numbnuts try to ride that friggin' moose? And how about that high mountain skier who fell over 5000 feet? Say, do you think we could get a sponsor for a robot? I have a great idea that ought to be a winner...............

Is this the same Phil Donohue who I vaguely remember seeing on daytime TV something like thirty-five years ago? He's still around? Well, unless he's changed a lot over the years, I'll have to agree with DougR. A wiener is a wiener regardless of the color of his stripes.

(Not particularly good shootin' there, Doug, just a real easy target.)

Is it true that men, per se, prefer act-and-damn-the-consequences figures rather than analytical, thoughtful males? Do men prefer a simple black and white world with one-trick-charlies vying successfully for gorgeous but one-dimensional women as depicted in Bond movies to that of a complex society where it is frequently difficult for people- including men- to know the proper course, given that there are multiple paths, all of which may pass through pain and uncertainty, a world where there is no single best road? Do men acknowledge and accept that this is a world where people- includiing men- cry alone in the night?

I miss Dick Cavett. He was the only good talk show host there ever was. Bill Moyers is good, but he's not, strictly speaking, a talk show host.

I'm pleased to see so much agreement on this thread. Nice to be in the majority for a change.

Yep, that's the same Phil Donohue, Bruce.

Peg, you are SO suspicious! :>)

"It's the real world now, the information flying through the ether... it's wrapped in plastic, and it smells like Febreeze..."

It's NOT the real world. it is the world foisted upon us by Hollywood and Madison Avenue. It is what the pundits and producers choose to let us see. The real world lives in your neighborhood, in your city, shares your planet. The real world is too harsh for a lot of pansy-types - they'd rather forget child-prostitution rings and domestic violence and American jobs sold overseas and people dying in gang wars.    It's time to wake up and smell the culture we've created. Not pretty, but it's 'real'.

Hey DougR! At least us "liberals" notice when the Right Wing American Media Propaganda Machine gives us insipid fools to represent our side. You guys don't even notice that they've given you a bunch of, brainless, foul mouthed, bags of wind.

But I agree with you. Everybody should stay home more and watch more TV and go out less to see live musicians. This is after all the information age, right? "What do you think, caller?...."
