OTB on MSNBC TV
I’m scheduled to appear on MSNBC’s “Connected Coast-to-Coast with Ron Reagan and Monica Crowley” at 5 p.m. Eastern to discuss, of all things, the recent spate of judge shootings and what needs to be done about it.
Maybe they needed someone else with a PhD in international affairs to balance Crowley on the topic….
Update (1900): Unfortunately, I got bumped from the lineup around 1745 after sitting in the studio miked and ready to go for 45 minutes. They wound up doing multiple segments with Bo Diedle, which cut into the schedule. It was, to say the least, aggravating. Still, it’s understandable that they didn’t want to cut off fruitful discussions with subject matter experts to get to my segment. I took some consolation that Mike Scheuer of Imperial Hubris fame had previously gotten bumped from Hardball because they decided to go wall-to-wall with the Atlanta shooting saga. So it goes in TV land, I guess.
