Man… I really liked his book, From Beruit to Jerusalem, but then I listened to him on On Point and I just couldn’t stand him. He sounded so full of himself as if his opinion mattered more simply because he’s famous. He wasn’t very coherent though.
I pretty much just stick to NPR for news but it’s absurd how these pundits just talk talk talk the way people talk about sports. It’s not like talking about things in which they can take action, it’s much more gawking at the big stars. Or at least that’s the effect.
