Randi Rhodes is a liberal radio host on Air America.
Dennis Prager is a conservative radio host.
They will be tangling on “Larry King Live” tomorrow.
From a mass email from Air America Radio:
Monday night at 9, Randi Rhodes will be on CNN’s Larry King Live! She’ll be participating in a panel discussion along with Jim Hightower and Dennis Prager discussing Alito, the upcoming State of the Union Address and more. Watch Larry King Live on CNN at 9pm EST.
You can watch a clip of the last time Randi Rhodes went up against a conservative at Crooks and Liars (it shows Rhodes vs. conservative radio host Janet Parshall on C-Span in October 2005.)

Randi Rhodes, Jim Hightower, and Dennis Prager weren’t on after all.
Apparently, the “Larry King Live” producers had a change of plan.
Guests included Bob Schieffer, Peter Arnett, Christiane Amanpour, and others. The guests agreed that reporters should get close to wartime stories in spite of the danger.
Bob Schieffer said that in a tyranny, there is only one version of events reported: the government version. But in a democracy, reporters need to go out and get another version of events.
