The McLaughlin Group

The McLaughlin Group (PBS) is one of the most enjoyable shows on TV, John McLaughlin, Pat Buchanan, Tony Blankley, Mort Zuckerman, and Elanor Clift provides some if the most inciteful and consice analysis of the issues affecting the world today. However two weeks ago, they proved themselves not to be well informed on all issues of the day. When discussing the issue of Somalia, one got the impression that they were out of the element, they could not provide any current information (no mention of the Transitional govt, or different warlords etc) and simply fell back to the trite warnings of blackhawck down redux: "Mogadishu deja vu". They did a disservice to themselves and the audience by not preparing adequately for the topic at hand, shame on them.
