EVERYBODY IS GLOATING about Donahue’s lousy ratings, though this story from the Washington Times suggests that he’s not doing quite as badly as people say.

I caught a few minutes of his show in rerun this morning (it’ll appear as a bump in his ratings) and it wasn’t so bad. He was interviewing an airline security specialist who was explaining that the inconvenience and stupidity of airline security were causing business travellers to stay home. No points for originality there, but you can’t argue with the choice of topic.
