Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Who knew?  Is McLaughlin deaf or does he just like to shout?  The content is not so bad, but the presentation is off-putting.

I think he just likes to shout.  He kinda has to over his guests...  Personal story:  My mother was a liberal hippie lefty, and my stepfather is republican neo-con type.  They were actually really great togther, but always getting into political debates, and our home was often like an episode of the McLaughlin Group.  We called it the "I'm right, You're wrong Show."  "Issue Number One: I'm Right - You're Wrong."  LOL.

I assume they don't have the McLaughlin Group in Europe.  Here's a clip:
