Radio Pick: Scott Simon on Miss California

BELLEVUE, WASHINGTON - This week's radio pick comes from NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday.

I've avoided paying much attention to the controversy over Miss California. However, Scott Simon has made the one point about Carrie Prejean that I believe was worth making--in what started the whole thing, her answer to what seems to have been a planted question about gay marriage during the pageant, nobody seems to have listened to what she actually said. This kind of analysis has been sorely lacking in most of the rest of North American media--and the comments about Scott Simon's commentary reflect that.

A friend of mine called it "manufactured controversy", and he is certain that she will be a new face for the GOP.
