Nice, silly, and slightly all too, super-reality. Reality these days is, one person makes salient point, the next, rattles on about a completely different topic, using obscure half-truths, in order to change the conversation. Reality is, there is no real conversation being had most times.

 

Peace!

I agree. They often talk past each other leading to nothing meaningful. The interviewer often fails to identify what is happening.

 

The cartoon also harks back to the old fairness doctrine in which any point of view had to have a spokesman for the opposition. The fairness doctrine led to some bizarre interviews; e.g. If a scientist was invited to explain the forces which made the world round, a spokesman from the flat earth society had to be invited also to present the opposite point of view. The interviewer was to act as though each theory was equally valid. Some interviews are still conducted that way as satirized by the cartoon.
