“When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.” – Dresden James

I agree...

It seems like - for instance - a question is asked about the FED and within 15 seconds of the allotted 60 seconds they are talking about Iran or some other topic.

They always seem to slip into some other topic so they can't be pinned down.
