Noah Adams on NPR’s All Things Considered.

Posted in Uncategorized by ruthanzo on June 1, 2008

It’s been such a pleasure these last couple of weeks to hear Noah Adams hosting All Things Considered on NPR (his old gig.) I wondered what had happened to him. He is SO good AND he never editorializes with his voice like so many MSM types. Ugh. What a relief. CBC (with it’s asleep-at-the-wheel lifers and the ‘aren’t we a clever bunch children’s brigade’) take note. Of course the team of Robert Siegel (a mensch), Michelle Norris (fuzzy friendly) and Melissa Block (a bit prickly) on All Things Considered is probably the best anywhere in the Western World. Noah and Michelle were co-hosting from Washington while Robert and Melissa were in China on special assignment. Then the earthquake happened. Coincidence? It certainly made for some outstanding radio.

    Spot on perfectly posted points. All Things Considered is tops and contrasts perfectly with the dearth of worthwhile things considered at the CBC. I used to think that the problem was Torontocentricity but the problems cited pervade from sea to sea. ..And speaking of sibilance, why is there so much hard ess sibilance at the CBC? Is it some sort of CBC fetish ?…like vinyl? or addressing interviewees by their first and last name?
    Sometimes , I wish Noah would come up here and sink that ark.
