Ray Suarez and Inside Story

Ray Suarez has found his voice on Al Jazeera, and it sounds good. Solid journalism, no jive, and Ray’s steady hand as moderator, are worth a watch.

The incessant monotonous drivel that is The Five on Fox, can wear anyone thin. Ed Shultz is a solid performer on the other side, but both shows are politic spin jobs. While that often fits the bill, the mind deserves a little variety. CNN answers that with The Situation Room. Still, something was missing.

Enter Ray’s golden tones, and thirty minutes of three-guest one-topic conversation. The questions are good, the tone is measured, and Ray shines.  You learn something, which is a rarity on the other networks.
