There was quite a war of words on MSNBC this afternoon between anchor Tamron Hall and Washington Examiner columnist Tim Carney. The topic of discussion was the recent Washington Post story about Mitt Romney‘s high school days, and the media onslaught that followed.
Carney argued that the story was irrelevant, and should take a back seat to more serious issues. Hall responded by arguing that the story is relevant to the national conversation, and that MSNBC was hardly leading the way in talking about the issue.
