The Shame was not...

Reader comment on item: Television in Time of War

The Shame was not Dr. Pipes refusing to show up on confrontational interviews on the losing cable networks, but the lack of the prime time shows on the winning FOXNews Channel having Dr. Pipes as a regular contributor, on his own.

Why would any sane person put themselves into a Catch 22 argument situation repeatedly, with an institutionally unfair media, such as CNN and MSNBC?
At minimum, the producers of Hannity and Colmes should have Dr. Pipes on a semi-regular basis, in a fair dual interview enviroment.
