Theo on the Agenda

I enjoyed this interview between two of my favourite Canadian journalist-guys, Steve Paikin and Theo Caldwell, as they discuss the U.S. presidential race.  Theo thinks it's a two-horse race at this point: Newt and Mod-hair Ken Romney, whereas I hope, along with Pundette, that Rick Perry still has a shot (but then everyone knows that Catholic mothers who wear pants all think alike). Anyway, Theo could talk for 22 minutes about stale cheese and I'd still listen with rapt attention. He is as insightful, eloquent, witty and dapper as ever. (Have I ever mentioned how stupid SUN News network is for cancelling his show?) Don't worry, Theo, I'm not planning to dye my hair red or start wearing a black spandex unitard any time soon.


  1. I'll have to check that out. I'm not a regular "Agenda" viewer, but I have always thought Steve Paikin to be a very good host. He always seems to ask insightful questions and, as far as I've seen, doesn't bring his own biases into the discussion. More journalists could take a cue from him.

  2. That's what I like about Steve. He lets the discussion flow without airing his own prejudices. Almost unheard-of these days in a TV show moderator.
