C-SPAN's Bill Scanlan

I hate call-in programs because rarely does a caller make a valid or intelligent point. On Monday, C-SPAN’s Bill Scanlan got a call from North Carolina complaining that “80 percent of your callers” are black and that C-SPAN should change its name to BLACK-SPAN.

The caller said that he was just making “a little respectful criticism,” and Scanlan thanked the caller for his comment.

Scanlan should have just cut this guy off and moved on. He certainly shouldn’t have thanked him for his racist diatribe, but that’s C-SPAN for you.
