Ken Tomlinson on Brian Lamb's Show

I just got done watching Ken Tomlinson on Brian Lamb's show on CSPAN. Tomlinson said that Bill Moyers was less balanced than William Buckley Jr. in his coverage of the issues because he Moyers didn't have "real political debate" on his show and Buckley did.
Interestingly, Tomlinson refused to debate Moyers on the show, so Lamb had what he called a "passive debate," in which he played clips from Moyers' speech at the Media conference and asked Tomlinson if those statements about him were true. To the uninformed, this meant that Tomlinson had an opportunity to at least try to refute all of Moyers' arguments. I hope Lamb gives Moyers a similar opportunity.
