Hey, I get it, we need to hear from those in power so we know what they are up to, even if they lie when they tell us. But come on, Meet the Press, you give the floor for the first 20 minutes (remember another 15-20 minutes is devoted to commercials) to a Trump apologist, with the only questions coming from Chuck Todd, who is hardly known for his tough questions.

Diverse panels where opinions and facts are discussed are what make the program at all useful, not commercials from government officials who don’t really get grilled. Do your job, Meet the Press and let America actually meet the press.
