PBS’s Glassman: If Not for Journalism, He Might be a Hand Model

aboutUsJimGlassman.jpg Jim Glassman, host of the new PBS public affairs program, “Ideas in Action,” is really fond of his hands. As for dislikes, he doesn’t enjoy hearing CNN anchors declare themselves “the best political team on television.”

Read the rest of Politico‘s “Answer This” feature in which Patrick Gavin grills Glassman on everything from his favorite joke to the childhood event that affected or scarred him most (the removal of his tonsils).

Read the feature here. This photograph allows a decent look at those man hands (judge for yourselves).
