Freeper Help Needed, Idenity These Hosts/Stations As Liberal or Conservative

Posted on 11/30/2002 4:24:46 PM PST by Doctor Raoul

Have some new candidates for the list of Liberal Talk Radio for your review. I don't know these folks, I sure there is some freeper who does. So I want your advice.

Al Rantell – KABC

Gloria Allred & ?? Taylor = KABC

Joe Madison

Jerry Hughes

KBOO

KPFA

KPFK

WMNF

WKTS

Joe Allen

Jason Jarvis

David Ross

Monique Caradine – WVON

Sharon McGhee – WVON

Prof Willie Dixon – WVON

Peri Small – WVON

Pervis Spann - WVON

Can someone give me a rundown on the liberals at KABC radio?

Can someone confirm that all the hosts at WVON Chicago are liberals?

For the station call letters I listed, where are they? Are they Pacifica, NPR or other “oppressive” network stations?

High-profile attorney Gloria Allred is a partner in the law firm of Allred, Maroko & Goldberg, a Los Angeles based firm. She has won countless honors for her pioneering legal work on behalf of women's rights and rights for minorities who are discriminated against on account of their gender, race, age, sexual orientation, or physical condition.

An active feminist, Ms. Allred founded and is currently serving as President of the Women's Equal Rights Legal Defense and Education Fund (WERLDEF). Recently she was selected by USA Today as one of the 25 most important radio talk show hosts in America. She has also been nominated for an "Emmy" three times for her television commentaries on KABC-TV.

Al Rantell is conservative on KABC. One of my favorite hosts.

Gloria Allred, of course, is a liberal. Calls President Bush the "selected president". Her partner(Mark? Taylor) tends towards the conservative point of view. I used to enjoy them but I believe they're no longer on KABC. O'Reilly and Rantell have replaced them.

AFAIK, KBOO, KPFA, and KPFK are all part of Pacifica, an extreme-left-wing foundation on the left coast.

Al Rantell: "What interested me about the story was the reaction of a local talk radio host, Al Rantell, a very conservative (and openly gay) man."

Every station will have a token conservative or liberal just so that they have something to point at when quizzed about bias.

Thanks. In looking at search engine results and the KABC website, I couldn't figure it out.

Gloria Allred is no longer on KABC. There's an early morning program called Ken & Company and I believe one of them is a liberal. You might take a look at KABC's website and see if there's any info about them there.

Madison and David Horowitz were both arrested at the Embassy of Sudan for protesting against slavery in Sudan. Is Madison a moderate or a conservative?

LOL! I didn't know she wasn't on any longer....that was all from her website (which I forgot to post a link for). Here it is: Gloria Allred

Why do they still have that "false" info up if she's no longer on a talk show? Course, that site isn't dated....so I don't know when it was put up there. But you ask a good question.

"Is Madison a moderate or conservative?"

I must say, I don't know. I don't know if I've ever heard him speak. But here's what was on Newsmax site: "Mr. Madison has served on the NAACP Board of Directors for more than 14 years..." I assume he cannot be conservative, at all, if he's on the NAACP Board....that's a liberal liberal liberal organization.

KABC, WABC, AND WLS are all owned by ABC. Yes the same ABC that is owned by Disney and is run by Eisner.

They carry conservative hosts because if they don't other stations will.

The Clear Channel has 1200 stations and distributed Rush. They have a lot of conservaitve hosts. Some are local like the ones on WLW in Cincinnati.

But if tomorrow some liberal host started drawing audience and could out draw Rush, he would be on and Rush would be in a new time slot.

It is mostly a commerial venture. Conservative hosts garner audience. They sell audience. If a host does not garner ratings he or she is history.

It just appears that in the market place of ideas, conservatives win audience with a score of about 90 to 10.

Jason Jarvis goes both ways (poitically), I got on his show a few days ago on Gun Control, he is against it, but I think he is a pro-choice kind of guy.

I have heard him a long time ago, he was filling in for whoever, he is kndof liberal, but seems more to be an oppotunistic conservative at best.

OK, thanks. That answer does help because I'm looking to put the definite hard left wing wackos, the ones that HATE conservatives but can't articulate why.

Madison is a "classic" democrat. Meaning moderate social ideas with strong ethical ideas.

At least that's what I pick up from him

Jason Jarvis replaced his mom, Judy Jarvis. She was 50/50, and I think he is, too, but at least he is againt Gun Control. I will try to listen more to get a better idea.

By our standards, he is a liberal, I am sure.
