Talk show host scolds candidate for being late

Diane Rehm, the NPR talk show host, lived every talk-show host’s dream this week when she called out a guest — former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, a presidential candidate — for being late to her studio and calling in on the telephone instead.

Near the end of the interview, Rehm asked former O’Malley where the money for his campaign is going to come from.

“From listeners like you,” he responded. “Did that work? Are they calling?”

“I doubt it, I doubt it, I doubt it,” she said.

    Interesting to see her shake her head in disbelief as he answered the first question. My guess is we wouldn’t get that insight if he was sitting across the desk from her.

    At least he has the public broadcasting lingo down. 🙂
