What hasn't come out yet in this story. Was this incident a one off or, like Derringer, been happening for a long period of time.

I'd bet my entire life savings it was NOT a one-off ..

So fellow Newstalk 1010 panelists are getting increasingly irritated with Mark Warner.  

During today's round table, Vass Bednar had enough of Mark .. she said Mark's opinion was basically just that the other panelists were wrong, no actual counter point, just the others are wrong.   No fireworks from Ms. Bednar, just a growing distain for Mark & increasing the callout of his disrespectful, pompous behavior.

re: I just can't understand what one of John Moore's contributors [Mark Warner] is saying  .. 
It kind of sounds like he has marbles in his mouth .. not great for radio ..

I'm not defending Reshmi Nair but all the negative attributes/traits noted in this thread about her apply to Agar/Warner/Singh as well.

So those who find fault with Ms. Nair should find similar fault with Agar/Warner/Singh; otherwise an unintended gender bias may be at play.

Also of note - Mr. Moore was quite frosty to her on the interview this morning. He seemed rather interested about who she is now committed to.

Not the first time the frostiness has surfaced with Ms. Lantsman as she, like most politicians, is quite adept at repeatedly not answering the question asked. 

John Moore has been quite vocal about his distrain for the Truckers Freedom Convoy as well as Poilievre past LGBTQ stance; so not surprising Ms. Lantsman's dance with Poilievre raised some sparks.

Heard Moore's Round One this morning on Newstalk 1010 and one of the contributors Reshmi Nair sounded somewhat confrontational.  Similar behavior heard on The Rush? She gets a little upset when you disagree with her point of view.

re: one of the contributors Reshmi Nair sounded somewhat confrontational.  

More or less confrontational than Jerry Agar?
More or less confrontational than Mark Warner?
More or less confrontational than Knia Singh?

So Mark Warner does it again.  While not nearly as egregious as his debacle back in June, he once again resorts to insult as part of his reply.  He somewhat back peddled & said his reply that "he didn't get his science from Readers Digest" wasn't really an assertion his fellow lady panelist did.  Yeah, right .. he weaves insult into his replies all the time .. thankfully both John Moore & the lady panelist quickly called Mark on it.   

Personally, my view is that Round Table discussions would benefit from no Mark Warner .. and it's not that I often disagree with his view, it's due to his arrogant penchant for insult.

Personally, i find radio people whining about callers saying "an extra six words" is irritating ..  i'm not joking either.  over a course of an hour show, what is that? .. all of a collective minute?

If you dislike Apple TV's baseball telecasts like I do, don't despair....there is another free option for seeing tonight's Jays game.  Go to the www.ustvgo.com website and select the YES network which carries  all Yankee games.
I was watching YES network last night and I found the coverage to very fair and actually complimentary towards the Jays.  Much better than Apple.

Now there's an audio version, called "Heardle," but instead of trying to guess the right hidden word, you have to guess the song. The normal version of Heardle has tunes from pretty much the modern era, but those who are more into oldies might prefer the alternate games called "Heardle 60s" and Heardle 70s."
Heardle 60s
Heardle 70s
I stopped playing the original Heardle  [ https://www.heardle.app/ ] 'cause i sucked so bad at it .. 

but these more specific era Heardle versions are worth a shot :  ))  ..

Didn’t former Global anchor Mike Anscombe host a bunch of shows for Leafs TV?

Absolutely .. I remember watching Anscombe interview Mike Walton.  Walton was my favourite Leaf when I was a young lad. i still remember that Walton got a penatly shot in two consecutive games .. he scored at home but missed on the road, @Chicago i think.

Don't you agree?

The media has decided the issue, which is not their role.

Instead of saying "Pro-Life" and "Pro-Choice", they now say "Anti-Abortion" and "Pro-Choice."

"Amti-Abortion" puts a negative spin on this while "Pro-Choice" provides a positive spin and therefore unbalanced coverage.

I am not taking sides on this, just on the issue of the media taking sides when they should be non-partisan.

My view has always been that if women want an abortion, they can always get one, so why bother with laws for or against. A court ruling against it doesn't change a thing, and it won''t stop women from doing what is right for them.
