Poster SteveMT is right: Marine shows how to debate Morgan.

Boston was calm, cool, collected and knew his stuff. Compared to Jones, I understand the perspective about Jones' rant -- not debate but rant -- on Morgans' show, that it was to galvanize people and spurn them to action. That tactic's positive effect, if there is one, is short term, but its effect long term is disastrous. Disastrous because it appears to justify outlandish behavior that if enough people condone, it will begin appearing in media, all media, rendering news far worse than it is, a cacophony, here the producer of division and, forget teamwork, the incapability to communicate with each other.

DPer or DP reader, make Jones conform to you. If you remove your approval from Jones even to the point of discussing with people your disapproval of Jones, Jones will get the message. He'll have to remove his ace -- his hyperactivity. This removal of his will help him and you. Him, because if he returns to hyperactivity (after not doing it for a long time), it will be merited, causing you to spend no time parsing his commentary and wondering if he's hyping a story and exceeding credibility.

One last word: If you're interviewed on radio or TV, especially on a well known media outlet, just know more often than not that you're not being interviewed, you're in a debate.
