The Huckabee Show

I have to admit that this bothers me just a little…


KDFW is our local FOX affiliate, the same station that brings us “The Simpsons” and “Family Guy.” It is public broadcast television. It does not require a cable or satellite subscription.

KDFW, beginning next Monday, will be airing “The Huckabee Show” from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

It just seems to me that political talk shows, particularly extreme right wing political talk shows, should be restricted to the cable network — you know, FOX News. That’s what it’s there for, right? I mean, what’s next… Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity? All in all, though, I believe I am taking this rather well. Can you imagine how the Republicans would be screaming if KXAS, our local NBC affiliate, starting airing Keith Olbermann or Rachel Maddow?
