...I have, many, many times.

People thank God for C-Span because they believe that that this channel is tha last unbiased broadcast in America.

I don't belive any such thing. What I saw on this mornings broadcast was something I have seen before and been disgusted by.

A guest was on this morning discussing how there are efforts in many states to implement measures that could result in curtailment of voting, under the guise of preventing voter fraud.

Mr. Steve "squeeky clean" Scully, opened up the phone lines and this was essentially the pattern:

*...Calling on the Republican Line - opposition to guest
*.....................Line unannounced -opposition to guest
*.....................Line unannounced -opposition to guest
*...Calling on the Republican Line - opposition to guest
*...Twitter(no political affiliation given) -opposes guest
*...Calling on the Republican Line - opposition to guest
*.....................Line unannounced -opposition to guest
*.....................Line unannounced -opposition to guest
*...Calling on the Republican Line - opposition to guest
*...Twitter(no political affiliation given) -opposes guest

This went on and on until the segment was over. I have seen this happen before when a right leaning guest is one, except that the same blockade of Dem or Progressive voices is favorable to the guest. Then they alternate with unannounced political affiliation/line or they alternate with Republican callers, foreign callers who are not in touch with the vibe of Left/Right American politics, and "independents".

I have also seen other well-defined patterns. But this is one that made me sick and disgusted today.
