Friday's snapshot explains Diane Rehm hasn't made time on her Friday show, second hour when it's international news, to discuss Iraq. Not since January 21st has Diane seen fit to include Iraq.
An hour each Friday to discuss world events and she can't find Iraq for 10 Fridays in a row.
Forget "Where's Waldo?," where's Diane?
That's really embarrassing. You'd think she'd hang her head in shame.
Instead she wears her ignorance and boredom as badges of honor.
I really don't get how someone like her stays on the air.
At what point does someone come along, evaluate what she's offering and realize it's not much? And why do we have to pay for this crap?
Seriously, Diane Rehm books far less women on her show than men.
I think Title IX should apply to NPR if they're getting our tax dollars. And that NPR should start firing hosts who can't get to 50% on the amount of women they put on the air as guests. Clearly, Diane Rehm doesn't believe in Title IX.
You can't support equality and book as few women as she does each month.
And you can't call yourself a 'newswoman' and ignore the fact that the Iraq War continues.
Diane has never, ever explored the Iraqi protests. She's 'forgotten' the service members who've died. She's 'forgotten' the Iraqis. She 'forgotten' anything of real value.
So why the hell is she still on NPR?
Let's put in a mandatory retirement age of 63 for NPR. I realize that would mean over half their on-airs would be gone but damn get some new blood in.
