It was really great see-
ing Diane Rehm getting reamed for a change in Randall Bloomquist’s excellent, accurate “Too Much of the Goodness Thing” (8/2). I laughed, I cried, and nodded in agreement as I read this great exposé. I even read it again aloud to my wife as we both laughed. However, I must point out that Rehm is anything but fair and polite. I have personally been hung up on by her every time I’ve called (about 30 times). She will let every liberal drone on endlessly about “government health care, government mandates, government tax increases to help the little children,” but the second she realizes that I’m another one of those pesky Libertarians my connection goes dead. In fact, we Libertarians have a saying: “What’s the fastest thing in Washington, D.C.? Diane Rehm hanging up on a Libertarian.” She complains about G. Gordon Liddy, Rush Limbaugh, and others like them, but whether or not you agree with their politics (some I do, some I don’t) they are a damn sight more polite to their guests than Rehm. Rehm is afflicted by the worst form of bias—she does not even realize that she is biased.
