Default Re: harkin, Harkin, ... HARKIN!

As far as the pushback I was refering to, it occurs when he appears on MSNBC in his expert on the subject role. He is fed questions and his analysis is not questioned because he's trotted out as an expert and generally agrees with the mission of that station. I would agree that pretty much nowhere is anyone totally refuted, except in the minds of the audience. All kinds of crazy views get traction these days depending on which station you're tuned in to. (and I'm not saying that Ezra's views are crazy)
