I really have just about had it with Barbara and her constant need to try and fend off potential feuds.
The guest host to day was Aisha Tyler.
She was pretty good and jumped in to give her opinion.
She mentioned that during the wake of Anna Nicole Smith's death she was watching CNN and it was practically "The Anna Nicole Smith" channel, with wall-to-wall coverage.
Barbara of course had to quickly add that all the netwroks were like that, not just CNN.
Aisha didn't say it was just CNN, she simply said that she had been watching CNN and that's what she'd observed on that channel.
Barbara isn't trying to necessarily limit what the co-hosts say, but she jumps right in to 'clean' things up if they say something that might be misconstrued.
It's becoming more and more noticable and more and more irritating.
It was happening before Imus too.
