Why does Jack Beatty still have a role on On Point with Tom Ashbrook?
Even as a progressive liberal listener Beatty only provide agita,
playing to the list liberal denominator with arguments that often fall
short of any redeeming value.
I don't listen to On Point as regularly as I'd like, but I think Beatty adds to the show. He wears his heart on his sleeve, that's for sure, but he's got the intelligence and the historical context to justify it. Where Beatty would really be a perfect fit is blogging for his former mag, the Atlantic -- which should still be publishing from Boston, with real Bostonian intellectuals like Beatty sharing their wisdom with the less advanced parts of the country.
Keep the questions coming, folks!
