RFK Jr. Claims Air America Was More Popular Than Conservative Radio
NewsBusters ^ | June 25, 2011 | Jack Coleman

Posted on 06/26/2011 10:23:12 AM PDT by george76

... which helps explain why conservative radio continues to dominate the airwaves while Air America Radio, uh, went kaput.

During a recent appearance on Tavis Smiley's PBS show, enviro lawyer Robert F. Kennedy Jr., whose "Ring of Fire" show ran on Air America, made what reasonable souls among us might construe as a questionable claim.

Some people think liberals are just misguided and ill informed. It’s more than that. They are REALLY STUPID!

the GOP needs to get a real leader for everyone to back to throw the children out of the white house.

I've always thought of him as a "mainstream" Kennedy

Ain't that the truth!

If anybody reading this post has any doubt, check out this segment of the PBS interview where he made his Err America comment.

His comment is a demonstration of how split our country is. With the demise of the local newspaper on the doorstep, a source that everyone in the community read in addition to whatever they chose to read, people today ready only the point of view they already believe in and are oblivious even to the existence of other news sources. For instance we live on FR, but the liberals I know have never even heard of it.

Another alcoholic, drug addicted, spoiled rich Kennedy kid having a hallucination. Nothing new here. Time to stop trading off his daddy’s and uncle’s assassinations. RFK Jr. is nobody. The Kennedy mystique has been exposed for the fraud that it always was.

His sister, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, has a famous Godfather. Joe McCarthy. Yes, THAT Joe McCarthy. Both John and Bobby were big supporters of McCarthy. “Fun facts with which to irritate liberals”

“Robert F. Kennedy Jr., “Ring of Fire” show”

Isn’t that a reference to the anus that some (eg faggots) use?

I haven’t heard that much about him. Did he do something that makes him lower than the others?

I would far prefer to pick and choose amongst various choices of information, than to have what I am supposed to accept as fact spoon-fed to me by the likes of Walter Cronkite, Dan Rather and Katie Couric.

And it will be better for us as a country. If we had begun this process in 1945, we would be in better shape now.

I’m not aware of any sexual assults so maybe he is not as bad as the others. I was just being a little hyperbolic.

The usual End of the Gene Pool drug addict Kennedy bulls*t.

This chronic liar/fool may be the worst of all the remnent Kennedys. At least Patrick Kennedy attends AA and has some humility.

He always sounds like that. He’s trying to impersonate Joe Lieberman.

My wife and I almost died laughing once back when Dennis Miller had his show on CNBC. He was interviewing Kennedy, and after Kennedy ignore his third or fourth question, Miller just told him he was giving up his side of the interview, and to go ahead and filibuster the rest of the segment since that was all he seemed to be any good at. He did.

Funny....

I was in grad school at UVa when this creep was in law school there.

Could. Not. Be. A. Bigger. Azzhole.

He stayed drunk for three years. One night, he drove drunk into a lady’s yard and got stuck in her garden. Granted, there was a party nearby, but I watched him spin doughnuts in her garden, ruining everything. He was the only one who thought the vandalism was funny. Everyone else thought he was beyond hope. Of course, nothing every came to light about the incident.

The general rule of thumb for those three years was “leave immediately if Bobby Jr. shows up”.

Yuk.

Oh there is more. Joe McCarthy, yes that Joe McCarthy was engaged to marry one of the Kennedy sisters. The engagement was called off after McCarthy fell in to disfavor.

Also, Bobby Kennedy was on McCarthy committee as a staff member. He was I think the number 2 staffer, number 1 was Roy Cohen.

Ozzie Osborne isn’t the way he his because of drugs. He is the way he is from alcohol. He’s about one step away from being a ‘’wet brain’’. A ‘’wet brain’’ is someone who’s brain is so damaged from alcohol they’re basically incontinent(Ozzie wears a diaper) and incoherent, which is why Ozzie sounds like he does.

P.J. O’Rourke dubbed the Kennedy Klan “The Bog Trotter’s Circus”. Evidently, the Irish think little of those who work in the peat bogs, or something like that.

Whatever.

But, “The Bog Trotter’s Circus” is soooo very descriptive.

PS O’Rourke wondered when they would fold their tents and steal away.

In attempting to make his inaccurate point, he refers to radio markets as “jurisdictions”, instead of as “markets”, a fairly telling point when the BS starts leaking out of this burned out statist

Remember that he was also the one who said the DC area would never get any snow again. In 2007 or 2008 - a year or two prior to the massive blizzards of 2009/2010.

I worked for a contractor from Framingham, Mass, at the time the founders family still was active in the day to day operations and I became friendly with on of the grandsons.
He told us over dinner one night, as teenagers his fathers rule number one was “if any Kennedy’s show up, leave at once”. I asked the reason, he answered, “if anything bad happened, they would try to make you take the fall, and with them around a lot of bad happened.”
