Before the Group came along, political talk shows tended to be polite interrogations of politicians, authors and other newsmakers. McLaughlin changed that. He bypassed the newsmakers to let us commentators argue about the newsmakers. He further enlivened the conversation by giving his panelists too many topics and too little time to make our points without raising our voices and talking over one another.
