Posted on 11/25/2007 5:36:29 AM PST by raccoonradio
Howie made his grand return to radio on Nov. 18. In this weekly thread we follow his show plus I'll post interesting columns by him, etc. There are usually daily pings Mon.-Fri. and Sun with his column.
Howie keeps pushing his website, HOWIECARR.COM, however, that url takes you right to the RKO site and NOT to the howie sight which used to be accessible by typing HOWIECARR.COM..........
I know, they need to change it! This goes back to when he was coming back and they wanted to take people to the main page of the ‘RKO site for something...forgot to change it back.
It SHOULD re-direct to:
Tom Bronkenjaw trashes Rush on Ingraham’s show (heard
in Boston 9-midnight on WTKK 96.9)
“Former NBC anchor Tom Brokaw took his publicity tour for his Sixties book “Boom!” into (at least somewhat) hostile territory on Mondays Laura Ingraham show. Ingraham played an old clip in which Brokaw slapped talk radio as “instantly jingoistic and savagely critical” of people questioning war. Like many other journalists who instantly let conservatives know they havent listened to Rush Limbaugh, Brokaw insisted Limbaugh “doesnt want to hear another point of view, except his.” Ingraham disagreed. Brokaw added: “The problem with talk radio is they only want to hear one note...The problem with talk radio is they mock anyone elses point of view, and they do it often in a mindless fashion.” This is rich talk coming from a man whose network hired Bill Moyers as his newscasts only commentator in 1995, and a man who wrote a syrupy tribute to hot liberal mock-jock Jon Stewart for his “Athenian” ideals in Time magazine”
Brokenjaw, that should read...
So, with Bozell saying Hillary hired private dicks to follow the big di, um, her husband.
Where the heck did she get the money? Embezzle from clients of the Rose Law Firm?
hey Tom!!!’what’s that funny smelling liquid in your Wheaties ????
Heather’s All Natural Rodent Milk?
I heard about that.Was that real, or was it from Scrappleface or the Onion?
AFAIK, it’s just another bizarre rant from a somebody whose 15 minutes were up long ago.
I did hear Laura’s interview with Brokaw on WTKK (again,
they have the show on a 12 hr delay!). He feels that
talk radio is one sided...(but as Laura pointed out,
it’s a reaction to the lib media out there—and as a caller
pointed out, hosts like Rush _ARE_ equal time!)
But—you can hear it here! Audio via http://www.newsbusters.com
The Tuesday ping. Wonder if Howie will discuss—proposal
to ban spanking
Laura was too nice to Brokaw.
What a whiner. There's real dialogue in talk radio, not so in the rarefied atmospheres of LA, NYC, DC, & Montana.
Yes, the spanking thing and at the top of the list fat teddy’s upcoming book,,,,,THE TRUTH ABOUT CHAPPAQUIDIC....er ahhhhhhhh,,,,,,NOT!
He’ll also talk about the Sean Taylor death,,,young man was just “beginning to turn his life around”
Ted Kennedy book titles...
The Chivas Ran Down My Spine?
Are there any websites which presently keep track of all Massachusetts ballot initiatives which are trying to get onto the ‘08 state ballot?
not sure—possibly something on official state site. Howie mentioned the income tax abolishment one and a few others
I did just spot this:
>>November 24, 2007
2008 Massachusetts Ballot Questions
Four referendum questions have moved a step closer to being on the ballot in Massachusetts next November.
These questions would ban greyhound racing, decriminalize marijuana, repeal the state’s income tax, and repeal portions of a development law known as Chapter 40B.
Advocates of the questions needed to get at least 66,593 signatures by November 21 - an amount equal to three percent of the ballots cast in last year’s Gubernatorial election. The town and city clerks in the 351 cities and towns have until Monday, the 26th, to certify the signatures. The Secretary of State then has until Wednesday, the 28th, to accept the signatures.
If the Secretary of State determines that the questions have received sufficient signatures, the legislature then has until the first Wednesday in May to pass the questions into law. If the legislature does not enact the questions, advocates then must obtain another 11,099 signatures - 0.5 percent of the 2006 Gubernatorial ballots - by June 18 in order for the questions to appear on the November ballot.
Thanks for the info.

And here, everyone, is the Wed. show ping.
