After The Takeaway: John Hockenberry's Reaction to Today's Show

Thursday, July 07, 2011 - 03:55 PM

We're putting forward a new feature: quick videos with hosts after the show. In today's episode, John Hockenberry reacts to some of the morning's best segments, talking about the importance of language, his idea for an episode of "Curb Your Enthusiasm," and his wish: to retire the use of "lame" in the modern lexicon.

When I saw this in my email: "The Takeaway: News of the World, No Longer" momentarily I thought it meant The Takeaway was being cancelled. The warm, fuzzy feeling soon faded when I realized you were talking about somebody else. Murdoch could have savbed himself a lot of problems by following NPR and PRI's lead; just forget about "reporting" entirely, and just interview other journalists, and pass along government propaganda as if it had something to do with the truth. Bad Rupert! No sushi!
