He actually is an acquaintance? Cool.
Speaking as a former beat reporter and feature writer, I'm sure he already knows that thick skin isn't enough, rhino skin is a good start. If he's doing commentary, something that never interested me--in much the same way that running for office doesn't interest the average sane person--he's gotta start thinking in terms of an exoskeleton at minimum, better yet a thick shell.
Commentary is a tough job and everybody has to cut their teeth. Tell him to keep his chin up--and lay the *obscenity* off of the cliches.
