No, but could you ask the person for Newshour if they'd mind eliminating their
roundtables? Talk about zero-content news. Not much but pre-formatted, cookie-cutter
opinions, a lot of people starting of with "Well, I think..." Not much real discussion
happening and never a resolution. The participants might as well look at the camera when
they speak.
