Never miss it
29 February 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoy watching this show very much and have for years. McLaughlin and the four panelists are very well-read on current events (they would have to be, all being journalists) and they do show all sides of an issue (when you can make out what they are saying).

I tend to be liberal in my views but it's important to hear other peoples' opinions and I am gratified that such a forum exists. Who knew there could be five sides to a story?

I suspect, however, that unless the people who run for office watch the show too, that all of the energy, opinions and knowledge displayed really won't change anything. It's Monday-morning quarterbacking at its finest.
