Perhaps I'm unusual, but I like to spend some time understanding what it 
is I'm opining about, before I start opining about it at any length and 
expecting anyone to give the slightest credence to what I think.

Even if your schedule doesn't allow you to hear Fresh Air (1 PM on WBUR, 
2 PM on WGBH) or ToTN (2 PM on WBUR) over the air, both shows offer 
extensive podcasts. (It should be noted as well that ToTN's regular 
host, Neal Conan, is on vacation this week.)

To form an opinion about Terry Gross based on "a couple clips Laura 
Ingraham once played of her show" would have as much validity, it seems 
to me, as forming an opinion about Bill O'Reilly based on watching an 
episode of Stephen Colbert, or forming an opinion about Rush Limbaugh 
based on one Rachel Maddow commentary.
