    ...It makes me puke that we have just been "Cheneyed" by a man named Barak Obama- Greg Palas on Air America 8/11/09 The world must nearing an end, snowballs are being thrown in Hell, and pigs are growing wings. Air America is bashing their messiah Barack Obama. It all stems from the secret meetings President Obama had with the people from the Pharmaceutical Industry to craft deals and win support for Obamacare. Even the ultra-liberal Air America has figured out that something sneaky happened in those meetings, especially since Pharma is now the President's most favored industry. During the January...

    Here is video of Liberal MSNBC Host Ed Schultz last night saying the "Liberal Left in this country is seriously considering dumping support for Obama." He made the statement in an exchange with White House aide Linda Douglass, who had been trying to tell him that Democrats are united in this Health Care battle. Obama is in a bad spot right now. The American people are rejecting his ObamaCare plan, but the Left of his party won't accept anything less than a full blown Government takeover of Health Care. He's getting it both ways right now. . . . ....

    You could call the late President Ronald Reagan the patron saint of the modern conservative movement, as often as his name is invoked and lauded by right-leaning political pundits. But for the past several months, our 40th president’s son has been carving out a growing niche on the radio by trying to discredit that same conservative movement. Ron Reagan Jr., has hosted the Ron Reagan Show from the studios of Seattle’s KPTK-AM (1090) since September. Initially, he took over an hour of the Rachel Maddow Show’s afternoon time slot as Maddow made the transition to MSNBC. But since January, Reagan...

    It's a consistent line from the left: Conservative talk radio is a cauldron of hate. In the Clinton years, a CBS News promo set out to warn the public about the dangers of Gordon Liddy: "The words are shocking ... What he says may not be illegal, but is it dangerous? Has free speech gone too far? Hate radio under fire, and firing back." It is an unmistakable, unquestionable, resoundingly unequivocal exercise in liberal hypocrisy. The airwaves are now filled with the meanest, most insulting, most dishonest ad hominems in history. They are coming from left-wing talk show hosts. And...

Ed Schultz took exception to Limbaugh's comments. Schultz made derogatory comments about Rush, and challenged him to come on his radio and TV show. Schultz accused Rush of being a "coward." Of course, Schultz wants Rush to come on his show, since it would increase his ratings by 20,000%! I think Rush was wrong about this Mr....

Last April, your humble correspondent declared that such milk carton photos of Randi would be unnecessary because, despite being MIA since February when she left Nova M Radio, Premiere Radio Networks would begin broadcasting her show again in May. Well, a couple of months have gone by and, oddly, Randi seems to be even more hidden from public view than when she wasn't on the air. Even Google searches have proved fruitless.

    What do you do when your TV show is flopping in the ratings department? If you're Ed Schultz, you desperately attempt to draw attention to yourself by engaging in "Psycho Talk" which, ironically is a segment of MSNBC's The Ed Show that Schultz uses to supposedly demonstrate "Psycho Talk" from conservatives. However, take a look at the crazed Schultz in this video slamming Hugh Hewitt for stating that he would refuse to buy cars from companies taken over by the government. It far exceeds in looniness any "Psycho Talk" that Schultz features in his segment. Here is how TV Squad,...

    The eight a.m. NPR news update today included word of the fatal shooting of one soldier and the wounding of another outside an army recruiting station in Arkansas. The news reader, Nora Raum, outlined the incident and stated that the shooting appeared to have "religious motivations." She did not name the suspect, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, or tell NPR listeners what those religious motivations might be. In other words, it could have been a radical Unitarian who gunned down the soldiers, or possibly a violent Presbyterian. Why the shyness? Why not tell people what is actually happening in the world?

    A shocking decision has been handed down by the National Public Radio board. In 1985, National Public Radio (NPR) adopted a policy stating that member stations had to provide "nonsectarian, non-political, noncommercial" educational programming. But in February 2009, the wording was changed to say: "NPR Member Stations shall provide ONLY [emphasis added] nonsectarian, non-political, noncommercial educational content on all broadcast channel(s) and related media distribution platforms such as member partners that use the NPR member brands." The rule, which takes effect May 1, means that any NPR stations carrying religious programming must cease and desist that programming as of that...

Randi Rhodes, who has been out of public view for several months, will reemerge on the radio airwaves May 11 following her mysterious departure from Nova M radio in February.

Here is how the return of Randi was covered in the Radio Equalizer: Not everybody gets three shots...

    Now that one of liberal talk radio’s key figures has absolutely bombed on cable, however, the mainstream media hasn’t a word to say about it. In this case, it’s hot-headed Ed Schultz, who has taken a small MSNBC audience base and rendered it truly invisible, with ratings barely perceptible even when analyzed by a microscope. If the formerly Fargo-based faux populist and paid union hack has an excuse, it’s that MSNBC’s overall audience has dropped like a rock since the Obamist regime took over in January. ...

Not very funny.

    Many liberals claim that Rush Limbaugh was bought and paid for by the Republican party. Not true especially since they couldn't afford him. However, what is true according to a source is that the new veracity-challenged MSNBC host, Ed Schultz, received cold cash from the Senate Democrats in order to launch a national radio show in an effort to counter Limbaugh. And who made this assertion? Some conservative antagonistic to self-professed liberal Schultz? Nope. This claim was made by leftwing former radio host Randi Rhodes. In 2005 Randi, during a C-SPAN interview with Brian Lamb, claimed that she was present...

Newsweek has been thusly broadcasting for twenty-seven years, has won "various awards and a place on so many station schedules" -- and I would venture that most of you have never heard of it. A state of anonymity that will likely continue with their Air America partnership.

    Freerepublic.com is going to get shut down by the Secret Service for threatening President Obama's life. If it doesn't happen because of a flimsy proviso in the post discussed here, then we live in a still more dangerous world.

    I'd been tipped off that KNUV 1190 AM, formerly the flagship station of the liberal Nova M radio network, and briefly, the home of Nova M's successor network, On Second Thought, had been padlocked. So I had to see for myself, as On Second Thought's driving force, Mike Newcomb, was apparently doing his afternoon show today as usual. At least, that's the way it sounded to someone who's not a regular listener of Newcomb's show. But as you can see from the photo above, 1190 AM's offices are indeed chained up. The security guard for the building told me that...
  • Lib Talker Malloy And a Racist Spoof: Jindal As Computer Tech from India

    Our friends over at Radio Equalizer caught liberal radio talker Mike Malloy in a bit of hypocrisy. Malloy obviously thought his wife was a scream as she pretended to be Governor Bobby Jindal portraying him as an outsourced computer tech from India replete with cutsey faux Indian accent. Malloy's wife acted as if Jindal was the Simpson's character Apu, or something. Now, one cannot help but realize that if a conservative had indulged in such an outrageous parody of an ethnic politician, Mike Malloy would have eviscerated that action presenting it as a high crime. Yet, when he and his...

    Yesterday was one of those days so dizzyingly busy it was hard to remember if I was coming or going and hard to remember everything I did. It began with a stint on the floor of the Chicago futures market, making a video in the shadow of the Affaire Santelli, and ran into an afternoon and evening of book events, culminating with a late night two-hour appearance on the remarkably thoughtful Milt Rosenberg Show. But it was an interview that came right in the middle of the futures market chaos that I may end up remembering most from this lengthy...

    The loss of star personality Randi Rhodes and the health of one of its founders was too much for Nova M Radio to bear. Started just 2 years ago as an alternative to Air America, Nova M was reportedly losing $100,000 a month (per the Wall Street Journal), and the loss of Rhodes meant the loss of a large majority of their affiliates. In addition, Nova M co-founder Sheldon Drobny has been hospitalized with a heart condition, something his wife, Anita Drobny claimed was due to the stress of running the company. As for the dispute that led to Rhodes'...
  • Put a fork in another libtalk radio network, it’s done

    The “On the Air” sign has been turned off for the last time at floundering libtalk network Nova M Radio. Nova M’s employees remain unpaid for the past two weeks and the company will reportedly seek bankruptcy protection next week. Lunatic talkers Randi Rhodes and Mike Malloy had been the network’s two “big” stars. We use the term “big” advisedly, because Malloy’s program was carried by only eleven radio stations.

    Alert Bill Press and the other liberals who want to re-institute the "Fairness Doctrine." The free market continues to be at work weeding out shows that most folks don't want to listen to. The latest casualty is Nova M radio which syndicated such shows as Randi Rhodes and Mike Malloy. The reports are now coming in fast and furious about the demise of Nova M so here is the latest from Brian Maloney of The Radio Equalizer: Libtalk network Nova M Radio has been shut down, according to the attorney for Randi Rhodes, Robert V Gaulin of New York. This...

    Just in case yesterday’s conversation with Megyn Kelly (or his long friendship with Hugh Hewitt) didn’t teach Bill Press about the free market in radio, today’s news about libtalker network Nova-M should. Brian Maloney reports that the syndication network has collapsed, thanks to a lack of revenue: Libtalk network Nova M Radio has been shut down, according to the attorney for Randi Rhodes, Robert V Gaulin of New York. … Moments ago, Gaulin sent this letter to your Radio Equalizer: Randi Rhodes’ on-air home for less than a year will shut its doors. In an email message of February 17th...
