Dont get me started on 3 or 4 people talking at once
The FoxNews programs used to be bad about they [and they may still be].
I watched Cavuto's afternoon program for a while. One day, he had 4 guests in windows on the screen. As the program continued, 2, then 3, then all 4 of the guests were talking/yelling over each other. That went on for 7 minutes. Cavuto never once stepped in.
That wasn't the first time Cavuto allowed guests to talk over each other without his intervening.
That was several years ago, and I have not listened to his program since. I don't want to waste my time listening to people talking/yelling over each other.

The first thing you learn on radio when interviewing is that more than one guest is a waste of time. It's not much better on TV. Its also why most of the better hosts are solo acts.Rush, Hannity, Levin,Laura,Beck--even though he lets his buddies do his show half the time. It is called the Glen Beck show. Too bad he doesn't get why.
It's all designed for one caller and one host.Everyone is on board at that moment,add more and you get less.

That wasn’t the first time Cavuto allowed guests to talk over each other without his intervening.
When this happens I usually wonder WHO finds it appealing enough to keep watching? Is it the scrubbed version of the Springer audience that prefers its brawls to be rhetorical? Is there such a demographic?
I end up believing that Ailes and those who run the network think it proves they are “balanced” or some such thing.
It’s weird because nothing is more certain to get me to turn it off than these talkover spats. Not that I’m likely to turn it on much these days.
