Agree with you there. Although I also liked the conversation with the Durham cop. And even with the old lady for that matter. What they had in common was rational conversation, as opposed to the other more sensationalist tactics.

Politicians are tired of the media making them look like idiots by putting them on the spot unprepared. What she should have done was get a sit-down interview, preferably with someone that knows something about firearms issues (maybe even the working group) to get some real perspective.

They should have skipped the second segment (with the she-man) and expanded the replica story to the full show. It needed to be quite a bit deeper to be a well-told story.
