Soon to be up on their site.

A radio station tower in Whitehall, PA toppled after cables were cut. Tower owned by clear channel and it was suggested it was an attempt to knock off the air a conservative talk station.

But, we're the "right wing extremists..??" At least, according to DHS and the townhall detractors. We are supposed to be the dangerous whack-jobs. Hmm. Well, speaking of jobs, I have one, and need to get some sleep so I can do it effectively, make money, support my family, and several others through taxes...

This sounds to me like it could be the work of ACORNS or union thugs. The bulldozers would make me suspect the latter due to the fact that union thugs tend to doze a lot.

They are probably linked to some internet fringe group... the Wash State towers were a sports station.

oh and they’re idiots apparently

Probably a remarkable coincidence.

If this is accurate the station in question would be Pittsburgh’s FM talker and home station of Quinn and Rose, syndicated and XM radio hosts.

However I see nothing about this on local sites in Pittsburgh and as far as I know the majority of broadcast station transmitters are located just north of the city above McKnight road.

Could be a microwave, satellite uplink or something like that but Whitehall is not prime elevated real estate.

Trying to “save the honeybees”? Or would that be cell phone towers?

''It looks like some of the cables were cut,'' a township police spokesman said. ''It appears to be criminal mischief...An ''ELF'' sign was left at the Everett area scene, but officials could not confirm the destruction was the work of the anti-development Earth Liberation Front.

Well, at least not any Right-wing, anti-American, mobs were responsible. They are so violent /sarc.

Haven't heard anything new on this. Actually didn't hear anything about it except on FR. I guess because it was a liberal left group it is perfectly alright not to fault them or mention it on the Alphabet channels.

Meantime the only mention of the TEA parties on these stations are smarmmy comments here and there. Except for FOX, it seems that there is only a smattering of sour-pusses from local liberal stations who are unwillingly assigned to cover a few of the stops.

WAEB is the AM station I listen to for Beck, Rush and Hannity. I am about a half hour from Stroudsburg.

Interesting how all these radical, leftist nutcases are feeling their oats recently. I wonder why?

An homage to Barack Obama and the Czars, their old "community organizer" mentors?

Reading between the lines when Eric Holder recently gave the two New Black Panther voter intimidation thugs free hall passes?

Obama Propaganda Minister, Robert Gibbs, condemnation and blaming right-wing talk radio on the falling popularity of Dear Leader's five year plan for the deconstructing the USA?

Revolution's in the air...

Most radio stations are offering an internet connection if you have high speed... WAEB

I wonder if any of these idiots know what can happen when a guy cable snaps and hits a human body?
