Interview this morning with BBC Radio

Weekend Breakfast, BBC Radio 5 Live, Sunday, April 6, 2008, 2:05 AM EDT. The interview was on Heston passing and guns. I don't normally say this, but, to put it mildly, the hosts of the British show were jerks. For at least a few days, the interview can be heard here.

I've heard recordings of other British shows & if the host disagrees with the guest, they can be very condescending in their tone & questioning.

to think critically, and therefore inquire critically, is something that a lot of talk television here in the US appears to lack, and i think that my opinion on this is shared overseas.

but i know what steve means: you sometimes get that tone or attitude in the UK despite what they actually know, or think they know, about a subject. that's another thing altogether. of course i freely admit that i don't even watch tv and am assuredly partially wrong in my estimation.

a little knowledge is dangerous. maybe we only seem uncritical if one only ever pays attention to our uncritical media outlets. pretty stark hypocrisy, that.
