« The Hunger for Content and the Effect | Main | Another Round of Panic »

Charlie Gasparino was side-by-side with a former SEC chairman discussing the bond insurers last week on CNBC. The former chairman, a rather dignified fellow, was discussing the problem and Charlie kept jumping all over him, interrupting him, etc. Charlie was blaming this guy for the problem even though he who was chairmen well over a decade ago.

The ex-Chairmen asked Charlie if he could complete his thought, then after a few seconds, Charlie just interrupted the poor guy again.

My point, the episode reveals an argumentative technique that is often used by someone without the facts.
