I ask, though, how "free" are we now as mining, oil and lumber companies lobby to exploit the land, and as legislators grant corporations enormous tax breaks and subsidies?

Chris Weigant

There is absolutely no danger of Meet The Press being cancelled. The show will go on. Sooner or later, though -- after exhausting all possible format gimmicks -- the higher-ups at NBC may finally realize they chose the wrong guy to host it when Russert died.

TV SoundOff: Sunday Talking Heads

HuffingtonPost.com | Jason Linkins | Posted 01.24.2014 | Politics

Today is going to be weird because last night some sort of complicated diplomatic arrangement with Iran was reached in Geneva, Switzerland and so we awake today in a world in which Sunday's simpletons will break it down and probably Bill Kristol weeps because what about bombing Iran for sport? It will be a weird day, watching people with a mostly flash-card education grapple with a serious thing that happened with such very little time to spare. (Maybe that's why there's no "Meet The Press" today? Their brains got hurted?)
