To anyone the least familiar with what actually passes as progressive positions, the charge that PBS and ABCNNBCBS are anything other than wholley centrist forums for noncontroversial infotainment deserves little in the way of serious consideration.

It was one of the better episodes of the season. A good bounce back from a lousy episode a couple of weeks ago with The Critic. Some of the moments that were memorable were CNNBCBS (A Division of ABC) with Kent Brochman still as anchor.
