From the preceding personal POV point-counterpoint, it would seem Mr. Green led a double life. In the public ear, he cultivated a personna which furthered his radio career, pandering to the lowest common denominator. Or if that is too harsh for you, to what he and station ownership knew was a mostly right-oriented and poorly educated listenership. In his personal contacts, is seems he showed his more polished, urbane side. As someone once said, once you can fake sincerity, you've got it made.

Getting to the honest truth as any individual sees it is about putting forward well-researched information and rational synthesis based on that information. Mr. Green's show would never have been mistaken for a bastion of rational discourse. More like a sanitized-for-Hamilton Howard Stern Show. More's the pity that honour now lies with Ch's Hebsy and Donna clown act.

If Mr. Green truly IS as intelligent and "fair" as those who knew him personally claim, then how could someone so "fair" trade on the obviously yellow side of radio journalism, disgused as "good debate"? Beyond ratings and the obvious personal gain therein, I see no reasonable explanation. So when is he declaring his intentions in the upcoming provincial elections? After the Larry the Lumberjack election debacle, Roy must see the writing on the municipal wall.
