McCarter's Hot Air

To the editors:

I want to commend Bryan Miller for her recent cover interview with William McCarter (September 4). Not only were her questions pertinent, but she also followed through and did not merely accept McCarter's attempts at clouding the issues.

Miller also deserves kudos simply for enduring the unbearable rush of hot air that emanated from McCarter. How Miller endured all of McCarter's self-promoting, history-distorting, rationalizing verbiage I do not know (I barely managed to read all of this marathon myself).

Despite McCarter's assertions to the contrary, the central problem with MOST of Channel 11's programming is that it is BORING and UNWORTHY of VIEWER SUPPORT.

Perhaps Miller should be given a hand at the programming wheel at WTTW. McCarter should retire NOW, while Channel 11 is still afloat.
