  • Replace Nick Robinson, for goodness sake

    Like the program and format, dislike the ugly interviews led by Nick Robinson. He hasn’t any talent or professional technique, preferring to attack and speak condescendingly to anyone being interviewed. Ugly, cheap and doesn’t get to the truth of the matter - only serves his ego.
