welch was on msnbc tonight

and made fun (sorta) of the dude who wrote the book “too high to fail”

fascinating conversation for two reasons

first they’re all very smart people speaking from facts and logic instead of ideology and fear

second, their isnt anyone on the four-person panel with an opposing view

traditionally in journalism you try to have a “balanced” panel to get both sides.

but often such dynamics cancel each other out as the conversation cant lift off the ground

here, the discussion elevates as people compliment (and gently diss) each other

and take it to the next level with each statement.
