Finally, a Blowhard Cable Host Gets What's Coming to Him

I'll confess that I don't really understand why anyone wants to go on TV with a cable blowhard like Bill O'Reilly, Lawrence O'Donnell, or Chris Matthews. What's the point of putting up with their ranting? Is appearing on television really that important?

But that's just me. I get that plenty of people enjoy being on TV more than I do. (Actually, pretty much everyone probably enjoys it more than I do.) Different strokes and all that. That said, I sure did enjoy finally, finally seeing a mistreated guest tee off on a blowhard host. Julia Ioffe's post today is one I've been waiting a long time to read.
