    I DVR'd Vegas on 10/23 and was watching it tonight. Ten minutes before the show ended, a graphic popped up on the screen saying Jay Inslee D 627,164 55% Rob McKenna R 513,134 45% Very similar to the thing that happened in Phoenix 4 days ago, but this time for the governor of WA. I have it recorded but do not know how to transfer it to my computer.
  • Democrats celebrate recent victory (KIRO reporter Bob Branom shows his bias)

    11/24/2006 6:40:40 PM PST · by mdittmar · 2 replies · 448+ views
    The 13th annual post-election analysis and fundraiser State Sen. Jeanne Kohl-Welles (D-36th District) held on Nov. 16 was markedly different than her first 12. That's because in the latest election Democrats trounced Republicans at a state and national level for a change. However, KIRO-TV reporter and master of ceremonies Bob Branom cautioned a roomful of people at the Hale's Ales Brewery & Pub, where the event was held, not to put too much store in the results. Polls showed, he said, that people voted against Pres.George Bush more than they voted for Democrats. "It's something we should keep in mind."

    The Seattle P-I ^ | 5/26/06 | NEIL MODIE
    He will fill in for vacationing Dave Ross -------------------------------------------------- Seattle's liberal, never-bashful Rep. Jim McDermott has found temporary work that, like his day job, consists largely of saying what he thinks. The nine-term Democratic incumbent will fill in as host of "The Dave Ross Show" on 710 KIRO Radio next week while Ross -- himself an unsuccessful Democratic congressional candidate two years ago -- goes on vacation. McDermott's first guest Monday will be Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., an outspoken advocate for the military but one who, like McDermott, has become a harsh critic of the Bush administration's Iraq war policy....

    In papers filed Dec. 5 in King Co. Superior Court, and obtained by BlatherWatch, KIRO talk host Mike Webb (9p-1a) was charged with the crime of Fraudulent Insurance Claim in an alleged $5982 scam against a car insurance company. According to the Court's Superform, Michael Kenneth Webb, 50, KIRO Radio Talk Show Host and a Virgo, is also the subject in an investigation of forgery. The papers were gleaned from public court records. Charges were generated after an accident June 28 involving Webb in his black 2000 Lexus GS-3 and his alleged subsequent dealings with GEICO.

  • LIBERAL TALK: SLEEP AID - 'Progressive' Host Helps Elderly Activist Snooze

    The Radio Equalizer- Brian Maloney ^ | November 26th, 2005 | Brian Maloney
    In radio, there's perhaps no greater insult than to be told your program helps elderly listeners nod off at night. Talk shows are supposed to keep people awake, not serve as a sleep aid. In addition, because advertisers demand audiences primarily between the ages of 25 and 54, stations usually try to aim in that direction, without completely chasing away listeners older than 55. With that, I'm not sure if Seattle Post-Intelligencer reporter Gordy Holt meant to dig extremist KIRO/Seattle host Mike Webb, but the result was one of the most devastating verdicts ever levelled against a radio program:

    The Radio Equalizer- Brian Maloney ^ | September 14th, 2005 | Brian Maloney
    Liberal Seattle news-talk station KIRO and conservative sister KTTH-AM finally have the word from the National Labor Relations Board: they're no longer working in a union shop. And it all came down to one disputed ballot, cast by syndicated talk show host Michael Medved. After a contentious battle led by overnight KIRO talk host Lou Pate, the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) was decertified at KIRO and KTTH. Making the fight especially weird: another one of KIRO's evening talk hosts, left-wing extremist Mike Webb, loudly supported the anti-union campaign. Meanwhile, a few conservatives in the building at...

    What's happening to talk radio in the Puget Sound area? Tonight's fresh ratings data for the Seattle-Tacoma market doesn't bode well for the format. Soon after the data's release, the Radio Equalizer was already hearing from readers, who thought these declines really jumped off the page. Liberal, conservative, it just didn't matter from Arbitron's perspective: Lattleland seems to be suffering from talk radio fatigue.

Monday, October 4, 2004 12:01 a.m. EDT SEATTLE--At a joint appearance over the weekend, the network news anchors began to circle the wagons in defense of the beleaguered Dan Rather. "There's a political jihad against Dan Rather and CBS," complained NBC's Tom Brokaw at a New York Public Library event Saturday. "It's a demagoguery unleashed on the Internet." ABC's Peter Jennings then weighed in. "I think the attack on CBS is an attack on mainstream media, an attack on the so-called 'liberal media,"...

    It occurred to me today that I haven't been writing about radio hardly at all to this point, I've been so caught up with politics recently. But with the new release of the CBS/Rathergate report, I thought I would update readers on what happened with my own Rathergate flap in September, as I still hear from people wondering whatever became of it. At the time I had a strong sense that I was removed from Seattle's KIRO radio, a CBS affiliate and regional newsroom, because I had sharply and harshly criticized Dan Rather on the air...

In a concession speech delivered from Boston's Faneuil Hall, Kerry took time out to discuss the efforts of volunteers in his campaign. At one point, he noted, "Thanks to William Field, a six-year-old who collected $680 a quarter and a dollar at a time selling bracelets during...

    When Bias Bites How Long Can a Dissident Survive Inside a Partisan News Station? By Brian Maloney e-mail Brian Maloney at It's hard to imagine a career that can throw you for a curve more often than one in radio broadcasting. The highs can take you into the stratosphere and the lows into an abyss. It comes with sticking your neck out in public. Sometimes you get rewarded and then, suddenly, you get whacked, mob-style. The last week, for me, has been a blend of the two extremes. A strange existence in another place, where events that by themselves...

    SEATTLE, WA (Talon News) -- A conservative radio talk show host says he was fired last week for speaking out against Dan Rather and the CBS News scandal involving forged documents related to President George W. Bush's service in the Texas Air National Guard. Brian Maloney, an 11-year broadcast veteran who had been on the air at KIRO 710 AM in Seattle, Washington since October 2001 as the host of the "The Brian Maloney Show," was highly critical of Rather and CBS News and openly questioned the way they were handling the doubts that many were having regarding the authenticity...

He isn’t wavering now either, less than a week he was ousted as a talk show host from CBS Radio affiliate KIRO in Seattle. Maloney said he was fired Friday after saying CBS newsman Dan Rather should be fired, or forced to retire, over the credibility of memos regarding President George Bush’s National Guard service that were the basis of...

    On his Sept. 20, 2004 program afternoon radio host of KIRO in Seattle, Dorey Monson, revealed that KIRO's AM talk show host, Dave Ross, who is currently running for the US House, is still under contract with KIRO. That in itself may not be a problem. Ross had said he wanted a job to fall back on if he lost the race. However, Ross was allowed to continue his AM show, "THE DAVE ROSS SHOW", for more than a month AFTER he began his campaign. Further, while the show has guest hosts for the time being, it is still promoted...

Maloney said Saturday he was fired for criticizing Rather's handling of challenges to the credibility of memos aired on "60 Minutes II" about President Bush's National Guard service.
