Talented Tavis!
22 July 2006 | by fkravarikSee all my reviews

I can't comprehend why Tavis Smiley has not been invited as a guest on high profile talk shows. I'm baffled. Unless I've missed it, he hasn't been a guest on the Oprah Show, Jay Leno, David Letterman, daily and Sunday morning talk shows, Hardball, etc. He's certainly knowledgeable enough. How is it possible that VIP's from the worlds of politics, entertainment and every other genre have been interviewed by Tavis, but hosts of most prime-time shows have not sought his take on just about any subject? This oversight should be corrected immediately. Tavis Smiley is terrific! Again, I'm baffled... After a daily diet of Black men behaving badly paraded before the public on the evening news, it's refreshing to see Tavis at the top of his game every evening on the Tavis Smiley Show.
