Real only if you're a flaming liberal
22 September 2004 | by RNMortonSee all my reviews

Y'know, I voted for Kerry in 2004 and am rabidly anti-Bush, but this show still bugs me enough I can't make it through more than a few minutes. From the guy who used to be "Politically Incorrect", the only catch was 95% of the time he was "incorrect" only if you were a Christian or a conservative, neither of which was setting the standard of political correctness. Typically Bill and two liberal panelists team up on/talk over one conservative shill, when they dispose of him/her Maher moves on to conquer other territory. Bill occasionally comes up with a gem, but he's too fascinated by his own reflection and the sound of his voice, in his own way a young, decidedly leftist Bill Buckley. The idea of telling things as they actually are attracts me, but there often is more than one valid point of view and - despite the "Real" title - the deck seems stacked way too often with Maher.
