Despite some stirrings on the right, there’s nothing wrong with Matt Lauer’s interview with Karl Rove, part of which aired yesterday morning. The Today Show host was a bit combative, but journalists are supposed to be that way when talking with political figures. (And sparring with a Republican is at least better than recycling the same five stories every morning and pretending like something is new.)
Matt Lewis had Rove on his podcast yesterday and came at the interview from a different angle. If you are a politics junkie, it’s a good interview to listen to. (For instance, Rove shares a hilarious story of a then-college-aged Lee Atwater’s first meeting with George H.W. Bush.) It’s definitely worth a listen.
