Link: Tom Shales Criticizes ABC’s Choice of Amanpour for “This Week”

I usually like Tom Shales, but I don’t understand his critique here. When all of the Sunday talk shows are staffed by white men and consumed by inside-the-DC-beltway chatter… I think it makes a lot of sense for ABC to bring in a strong woman, DC outsider, international affairs specialist who is also an award winning journalist. Don’t get me wrong, I have my own concerns about Christiane Amanpour. But I don’t see how Shales thinks Jake Tapper or Terry Moran are clearly better choices. To me they would seem like just more of the same.
