Conklin and Company with Sandy Isenberg: Disservice to Community

I do not agree with the "Conklin and Company" television program hosted by Lee Conklin having Sandy Isenberg referring to her as a political analyst on the weekly program. IT'S JUST NOT RIGHT!

When it comes to the subject politics and political science, I am not without a clue. I do have some background in the field having taught political science classes at the University of Toledo and at Owens Community College. Additionally, I am an inductee of Pi Sigma Alpha, the National Honor Society for Political Science and also an inductee of Pi Alpha Alpha, the National Honor Society for Public Administration. Not to mention that I have experience as the Political Action Chairman of a major organization, been the campaign manager of quite a few candidates, worked on many campaigns for issues, and have run for elective office on seven occasions winning three times. I have a pretty good idea of what a real political analyst does in the real world; and, it is not what Sandy Isenberg does.

I am of the strongly held opinion that the producers of Conklin and Company are denigrating true political analysts every time they refer to Sandy Isenberg as one of that elite group of people. The producers at 13abc WTVG-TV Toledo, OH are doing a disservice to the community by leading the viewers into thinking that Sandy Isenberg is a "political analyst" - in my opinion, Sandy Isenberg is nothing more than a walking and talking loud mouth yenta, plain and simple.

Sandy Isenberg with her roof and ethics isn't credible in any way, shape, or form.

I have stopped watching Conklin & Co. because of all this. Until they remove Sandy from the lineup, I'll continue to boycott the show.

I cannot help but agree that Ms. Isenberg contributes little to Conklin's show in the way of knowledge or insight. It appears that 13abc equates experience in politics with expertise, something we both know is simply not the case.

One cannot help but see her role in the show as a vain attempt to put a square peg in a roundtable.

Amigo Roland,

Well now, I'm glad that you finally got that off of your chest...

Don't you feel better now?

I thought that you would ;-)

BTW, I cannot argue with anything that you've said, for obvious reasons.

As for Mr. Conklin's characterization of Ms. Isenberg, I attribute that to the influence of a higher power in his chain of command (but he could choke, just a little, when uttering such mis-characterizations, IMNHO) if he expects to retain both his dignity and credibility...

Yet, he does work for the :Mouse House" so how seriously can he really be taken???
