She led him in the interview. She even points it out herself. Not great journalism. “How does that make you feel?” She seemed biased.

I'm not American. And I always find these episodes poignant. I think a desire for respite from political perturbations is entirely understandable, the preference to feel calm enough to move through a cherished ritual which you relied on as a space of non-taxing socio-cultural reflection and discovery without a sense of impending fatal cacophany, seems relatable. I always cherished how this show gave us cause, space, means and entertainement enough to empathize and relate to what might not otherwise be our experience. It was the story of the spider and their web on the otherside of a tree we shared. I think its important to percieve the comments people make on these shows with that same unconditional curious empathy. It helps us become more aware of what is constructing what influences what affects us, which means we can cultivate its best condition. I think people would argue the inheirant condition of 'American'. Which isn't a thing, unless its a thing for all 3 continents and its people. And I think thats the point of TAL, being American is a big big complicated nuanced thing, they want to show that in all of its ways. I enjoy that.

if she was in the US that long, why didn't she apply for citizenship. That is my problem. I do not feel bad for them. So over it!
