The Resume

Why he might be annoying:

    He regularly appears as a token 'liberal' voice on the Fox News Channel despite the fact he usually expresses views that are more in line with a typical Fox News analyst.
    He was fired from National Public Radio on October 20, 2010 after saying on 'The O'Reilly Factor' that when he sees people who identify themselves as Muslims on airplanes, he 'gets nervous.'
    His firing revived a long-standing demand by conservatives to cut off federal funding for NPR even though federal funding only applies for about 6% of their revenue.
    By some coincidence, shortly after he was fired from NPR he was given a pay raise and an expanded role on Fox News.
    After he defended Clarence Thomas when Thomas' credentials for being a Supreme Court Justice was being questioned, it turned out several female co-workers at the Washington Post had filed sexual harassment charges against him.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He has interviewed six different U.S. presidents and covered every major political campaign for the Washington Post from 1980 to 2000.
    His awards include an Emmy in 1989 for his tv documentary writing contributions and a columnist of the year award from the Washingtonian.
    He contributed material to such publications as Fortune, GQ, The Atlantic and Time Magazine.
    He obtained a B.A. in philosophy from Haverford College.
    He has honorary doctorates from several universities.
