"You can't keep her off public television! We got her back! She is Karen Hunter, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, host, The Karen Hunter Show, SiriusXM Radio, 3 to 6 P.M. everyday. How you doing my friend? I am awesome. I am. Really Awesome. By the way, every time I check out your show, or are lucky enough to be on your show, the conversation is compelling. An overused word, but true. Provocative. And makes people think. Hmm. What are you trying to do? Change the world. Make it better than I found it? Yeah. Isn't that all of our...?
