The Wall Street Journal's James Taranto is our featured guest this week on The RJ Moeller Show.
James is editor of OpinionJournal.com and author of its popular "Best of the Web Today" column. In August 2007 he was named a member of The Wall Street Journal's editorial board. Before the launch of the Web site in 2000, he was the Journal's deputy editorial features editor. He joined the Journal in 1996 as an assistant editorial features editor after spending five years as an editor at City Journal, the Manhattan Institute's quarterly of urban public policy. He has also worked for the Heritage Foundation, United Press International, Reason magazine and KNX News Radio in Los Angeles.
For our money, Mr. Taranto is one of the best writers around and we were absolutely thrilled to talk with him about his unique college experience at California State University-Northridge, his recent interview with Cardinal Dolan, what it's like to appear on Fox News' late-night show Red Eye, and how a talented journalist like himself views and utilizes Twitter.

In the second segment of the Values & Capitalism podcast, RJ finally recounts the full story of Rudy the Dog's recent harrowing exodus from Chicago to Los Angeles in the cargo hold of a United Airlines passenger plane.
RJ and The Gang also discuss NBC's blatant editing of George Zimmerman's 911 call, the lengths a pet-owner was willing to go to get his tickets to The Masters tournament back, and Dennis Prager's recent column on some differences between Right and Left in this country.
It's a jam-packed episode, and you can either stream the show live below or download it on your iTunes!
