    There are some shows where guests are shouted down, by other guests or even by the host. These are apparently the shows where Castellanos would be comfortable. Notably, when Maddow has guests on her own show, she lets them talk, even if she disagrees with them. That used to be the whole point of inviting someone onto a news show, to hear what they have to say.
