Sorry, Sarandon; Dr. Laura Has the Last Laugh
Newsmax ^ | Thursday, June 26, 2003

Posted on 06/26/2003 10:07:14 AM PDT by nickcarraway

Susan Sarandon and the other left-wing thought police who tried to force Dr. Laura Schlessinger from the airwaves can go have a good cry: Her ratings are up, up, up.

Talkers magazine says Dr. Laura's "stunning accomplishment" is an increased audience during Operation Iraqi Freedom, when programmers, radio execs and other so-called experts figured the war coverage would leave her out in the cold.

"These skeptics have been proven wrong," the magazine's June issue reports. "Clearly the baseline of what is considered talk radio's core constituency is longer and larger than was previously assessed. ... The big winner is talk radio, in general."

Schlessinger has "stablized comfortably at a lofty perch just behind Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, as the third most listened-to talent in the business," tied with Howard Stern.

Hey, where's the tolerance that the left speaks so lovingly of?

Oh, that's right.....tolerance ONLY IF YOU BELIEVE AS THEY DO!!

Conservatives rule the radio waves, they rule the book sales. What this tells you is that the democratic base doesn't care about whats goes on around them and they can't read real well.

What radio station in N.Y. carries Dr. Laura?

WABC used to have her in the morning, but no more.

... The big winner is talk radio, in general."

And conservatives are grateful to have something to listen to.

Hey, TommyD, better open a fresh can of sadness.

Dr. Laura is still on the air?

I used to hear her all the time. I now drive through a territory of more than 5 states, and I hardly ever hear her show. And this from an avid AM channel flipper.

Her show was moved to the night time here in Boise in favor of Glenn Beck or Hannity.

So, let me get this straight, the Left can voice THEIR opinions, but no one else can. And when Sarandon is criticized for HER vocal opinions, the rest of us are MEAN?????

Speaking of book sales, I picked up THE CASE AGAINST HILLARY CLINGON by Peggy Noonan today. READ CHAPTER 2! That book sure spells out the Clinton SHORTCOMINGS...
BIG TIME!
