  • Disappointed

    I remember listening to The Brian Lehrer show during the march for Black Lives in 2020 and being impressed at what seemed to be fairly even-handed discussions. I tuned in today (2023-10-26) to listen to a segment with Robin Wright on Israel’s war against the Palestinians and was appalled. At a time when the UN and many international organizations are describing what’s occurring in Gaza as war crimes and likely genocide, Brian and Robin blithely repeated Israel’s proven false talking points, whic... more

As great songwriters often say, a song means what you want it to mean. Stairway to Heaven, American Pie, Hotel California…. they dont need to defend themselves for your and the lefts liberal insecurity.

    If you were to make a list of the upcoming topics on any given Brian Lehrer show, I’d read them and think, those aren’t really my cup of tea. But I’ve learned over years of listening to Brian Lehrer every day that he can make absolutely any topic scintillating. Parking meter rules, senate races, zoning restrictions: I’m rapt. Somehow he is able to hear what a listener says, encapsulate it, and ask a meaningful, enriching question that gets to the heart of the matter and allows those of us listen... more
