Thomas Sowell looks at the decline of the talk show

Talk, Talk, Talk

today the listener or viewer is not likely to get much interaction on issues. Instead, there are far more likely to be parallel and prepackaged talking points.
I fear that he is too optimistic on one point:
Usually the best roundtable programs on television are about sports. This is probably because there are no predetermined positions or prepackaged partisan talking points.
Sports talk may not have partisan talking points, but it is filled with mindless soundbites.
