He lamented the drain of talent from journalism/media with the likes of Charlie Rose and the rest. It's a completely bogus idea, since the concept of talent among these people is grossly overrated. Opportunity and name recognition plays a far greater role. He also glosses over all the talent that left the industry as they grew disenchanted after being harassed by these cretins, as well as how many of these guys collectively contributed to the narrative of HRC being the shrill unelectable lady.

If your take is somehow coming back to the idea that any of these dudes are irreplaceable, just stop yourself and shut the hell up.

Franken just can't keep his hands to himself:

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/al ... 0ec295?b9q

The first woman, a 38-year-old book editor who was living in Minneapolis at the time, told HuffPost that she had just finished performing with a feminist choir at the Women’s Political Caucus event, which Franken and his wife, Franni Bryson, attended. After the ceremony, she and other members of the choir approached him for photos.

“My mother loves Al Franken. She listened to Air America [on which Franken had a radio show] every day,” the first woman said. ”I saw him and asked if we could take a photo together for my mother, and we stood next to each other ... and down his hand went.”


But yes, god forbid he resign because, remember, he COULD do SO MUCH for women at some undetermined time in the future.

This isn't surprising to me at all; he's got a track record of being a prick to both women he's worked with and who have been guests on GMA.

Wow, I honestly didn't realize they were two different things. I thought they were parts of the same gigantic multi-hour morning show.

What can I say? I have zero reason to watch either. Aren't they basically the same thing?

I knew this sort of thing happens a lot in academia, but I had no idea how pervasive it is across the board. Call me naive, or whatever, but I cannot understand how these guys could be so terrible for so long and hold on to those positions. I like women as much as the next guy, but I cannot imagine a situation that would evoke behavior bad enough to get fired.

I don’t understand why it’s so difficult to treat a woman respectfully instead of like a damn animal. There’s an obvious power element at hand with these horsefeathers. How insecure do you have to be to have power and stature but still do this stuff to feel your power and stature?

I mean...GMA is the ABC morning show, and Today is the NBC one. It's like saying "aren't Fallon/Colbert the same thing?"

In structure, yeah sorta...but pretty clearly different.
