Eli Lake Loses the Basement Dweller Vote

A C-SPAN caller gets an earful from the Daily Beast’s Eli Lake

Print Email
(C-SPAN)

C-SPAN, which delivers joy to so many terrible callers, got dashed with a little hot sauce from Eli Lake after a caller charged that Israel controls the United States government.

A question that may be difficult for some to answer is whether Lake’s response was fair or appropriate. A better question: Should Eli Lake host his own call-in show on C-SPAN? Obviously yes.

Apart from Israel, I kind of agree with the guy–let’s stop mucking around overseas and get our own house in order.

Jacob Arnon says:

I wish you wold have let Mr. Lake finish his sentence before you cut him off. I was enjoying his take down of the bigoted caller.

C-Span has in the past refused to screen out antisemitic callers, though they do screen out other type of callers.

brynababy says:

Yeah, why did you cut Mr. Lake off. He wasn’t finished with his comment!
