In case you didn’t tune into The Washington Times’ nationally syndicated radio show “America’s Morning News” - heard in Washington on WTNT-AM 570 and coast to coast via the Talk Radio Network - here’s what two of Wednesday’s guests told co-hosts Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin:

c Rep. Joe Wilson, South Carolina Republican: The embattled congressman, who shouted “You lie!” to President Obama during last week’s address to a joint session of Congress, said former President Jimmy Carter’s accusations of racism are “a distraction and a diversion from the issues that we should be discussing.” He instead urged his critics “to take the advice of President Obama, and that is that we should be discussing the issues, and that is what I intend to do.”

c Brian Lamb, founder and chief executive officer of C-SPAN: The Presidential Medal of Freedom winner touted the success of the popular cable TV channels he created more than 30 years ago that, to this day, keep a constant watch over the proceedings of Congress. On March 19, 1979, he recalled, a young Tennessee congressman delivering a speech on the House floor became the first person to appear on C-SPAN. His name? Al Gore.
