    Earlier speculation that GREATER MEDIA Talk WTKK/BOSTON is considering a format change sooner rather than later (NET NEWS, 12/11) may be getting closer to reality with the news that station veteran and current afternoon host MICHAEL GRAHAM has left the building. His departure follows that of middayer DOUG MEEHAN (NET NEWS, 12/17). The fate of other staffers is still unconfirmed; the station is currently airing "best ofs" of morning duo JIM AND MARGERY. We'll have more details on anything else as soon as we can confirm them. In the meantime, GRAHAM is actively looking for his next opportunity.

    Somewhere, Dick Cheney is smiling. An American president, with incomplete intelligence, invades a foreign — and friendly(!) —power, without its knowledge or consent. Using data gathered from Gitmo detainees subjected to “enhanced interrogation” the president gives the “kill order” for a target in a private residence, one where women and children are known to congregate. And after 22 foreign nationals are captured or killed at the hands of Navy SEALS — without any NATO or U.N. authorization — the president doesn’t apologize for it. He brags about it. Then it’s confirm that he ordered the SEALS to throw the target’s...

    The pundits say your staff put New Hampshire on your schedule because they wanted you to make your case on the economy before a swing-state audience. Have you checked the polls lately? Massachusetts is a swing state now. According to Public Policy Polling, just 44 percent of Bay State voters approve of the job you're doing as president. That's in a one-party, Democratic duchy where you got 62 percent of the vote just 15 months ago. There aren't any PPP numbers for New Hampshire, but around here liberals are like the temperatures.

    My favorite e-mail after Scott Brown’s stunning Senate victory: “Can You Hear Us NOW?” Answer from Team Obama: “We Know - You Love Us!” There’s a point where blind arrogance becomes comic, and we passed the punch line long ago. Check out this headline from the Boston Globe-Democrat: “The Message: Loud But Not So Clear.” Not clear to whom? Bad policies and even worse politics drove this blue state to replace Ted Kennedy with a fiscally-conservative Republican. It wasn’t exactly a subtle message. And yet it’s still lost on folks like Globie Renee Loth, still defending the liberal status quo....

    My radio station in Boston has been non-stop on the Brown/Coakley race for weeks. Three of our hosts are pro-Brown, two pro-Coakley. We were broadcasting from our own victory rally tonight in Braintree, MA at the very moment Scott Brown got the concession call from Coakley. He joined us on the air almost immediate to share the good news. The crowd of several hundred, packed into a room designed for half their number, exploded. Having not been in Boston when they broke the Curse, I can only speculate, but it must have been a similar moment. The crowd wouldn't let...

    This is a fascinating interview of Martha Coakley this morning on a local TV station, focusing mostly on health care. Note how Martha Coakley dismisses the concerns that voters have about health care by claiming the voters are too “unfocused,” don’t really understand this issues involved, etc. In particular, watch her adamant response to the question about the fact that 61 percent of voters in the Suffolk poll don’t think we can afford government-run health care. “Are they wrong?” the interviewer asks. “They ARE wrong,” Coakley practically shouts...

    I’ve never seen anything like it. I ran campaigns for six years, and I’ve been watching campaigns for years more, and I’ve never seen the “We’ve got to win this race” attitude from regular voters like I’m seeing for Scott Brown. In a typical campaign, the hardest part is getting people to actually do things—show up at events, make phone calls, etc. They all talk a good game, but what you usually end up with is a hard core group of activists begging folks just to put a sign in their yards. That’s why money is so important—so campaigns can...

    How’s that “hope and change” working out for you? I can’t speak for the Democrats, but Republicans - particularly New England ones - are loving it. After a year of defeat and dire predictions, Massachusetts conservatives have renewed hope for 2010. There’s definitely change on the way, and in a state whose legislators are about 90 percent Democrat, change can only be good for Republicans. And who can we thank for this new conservative spirit of hopeful-changeyness? The Republican Party’s new hero: Barack Obama. One year ago today, pundits were writing off the American right for the next election cycle,...

    It’s starting to look like the baptism/murder scene from “The Godfather” at Greater Media Inc. In December the company terminated outspoken, highly-visible WBT-AM/Charlotte afternoon drive host Jeff Katz for undisclosed reasons. This past Thursday, Greater Media hit WTKK-FM/Boston afternoon driver Jay Severin with an unpaid, open-ended suspension for anti-Hispanic remarks – including recent comments tying the spread of Swine Flu to illegal immigrants from Mexico. A suspension without pay is often a kiss on the cheek on the way to termination. If Severin does return to the job, it can’t possibly be the same anything-goes show. Are these moves somehow...

    Leave it to a Massachusetts politician to get taxes completely wrong. U.S. Rep. Bill Delahunt is soon expected to reintroduce the Streamlined Sales Tax (SST) bill, a federal mandate for collecting local sales taxes on interstate purchases. You buy organic Oreos from Oregon or moose meat from Montana, and Massachusetts sales taxes would track you across the Internet. Supporters argue it’s unfair to make traditional “brick-and-mortar” businesses collect our state’s 5 percent (for the moment) sales tax while a shop next door can sell the same item online tax-free. They’re right. Every business should be treated the same. What’s wrong...

    Janet Napolitano was right. There were hatemongers at the Tea Party rallies on Tax Day. They called themselves “reporters.” The Department of Homeland Security released a pre-emptive “assessment report” on the dangers of “right-wing extremists” just a week before the tax protest rallies. According to DHS, these potentially include pro-lifers, supporters of border security and that notoriously unstable group - U.S. military veterans. And I can report that there were, in fact, quite a few vets at our Tea Party at Long Wharf. But other than their crazy notion that spending our kids into an $11 trillion hole is wrong,...

You know it, I know it and the partisan crowd that literally rose to their feet and cheered when they heard it know it. And it’s nothing new. Democrats shot the lipstick line at Gov.

Barack Obama, on “When does a baby get human rights?” In 1948, they had Harry Truman and “The buck stops here!” In 2008, they’ve got Barack Obama and it’s “above my pay grade.” This is definitely not your grandfather’s Democratic Party. Certainly not mine. My grandfather, Ray Futrell, was a lifelong FDR Democrat, the kind who would proudly rather vote for...
  • Is Obama Just Too Weird To Be Elected President?

    Is Sen. Barack Obama just too weird to be elected president? Since the day Obama claimed the Democratic nomination, pundits and political pros have been waiting for him to take a significant lead in the polls. Here we are in August, and not only has Obama failed to get the Democrat’s traditional summertime bump, he’s tied with John McCain in the latest Gallup and Rasmussen polls. In a lousy year for Republicans, against a GOP nominee who combines the youthful effervescence of Wilford Brimley with the soaring oratory of a life insurance seminar, Obama is actually losing ground. Why? Obama,...

    Call it the “Extreme Rake-Over: Taxpayer Edition.” Three years ago, Patricia and Milton Harper were handed the keys to their brand-new, 4BR dream home on ABC-TV. When Ty Pennington handed them the keys, he also gave the Harpers $250,000 to cover taxes and maintenance for the next 25 years. Three years later, the home is in foreclosure and scheduled for auction - another “casualty” of the mortgage crisis. A free house, a sack of dough, and the Harpers still managed to get $450,000 in debt and lose their home? They are the poster couple for the $300 billion mortgage bailout...

    There are people in this world who believe that America is a force for evil in the world. They are called Europeans. Then there are people who feel the same way, but who will help elect the next president of the United States. They’re called Obama supporters. Calm down, my Cambridge friends. I am not saying that Sen. Barack Obama hates America. But even his most ardent supporters must admit - when they aren’t fainting away at his campaign appearances - that there is a direct and disturbing correlation between hating America and loving Barack. In Europe, for example, they...
  • Dropping The "N-Bomb" On Rev. Wright

    It is time for someone to drop the “N-bomb” on Jeremiah Wright: Nut. The guy is whacked out of his mind. Crazy. Unhinged. Certifiable. One step away from roaming Boston Common, pushing a shopping cart and muttering about the Mother Ship. A sane person, given three days of high-profile media opportunities, would spend them trying to convince voters that his pal, Sen. Barack Obama, is a good guy who can be trusted, in part because you’re not such a bad guy yourself. But the Rev. Wright, given that very opportunity, spent 72 hours reaffirming on national television that America is...

    Assuming there is no shocking revelation or health issue, the GOP nomination is over. Conservatives need to start practicing the phrase "Nominee presumptive John McCa....." Sorry, I can't say it. Not yet. But it's true. When the campaign comes here to Massachusetts on February 5th, I'll proudly cast my vote for any option on the GOP ballot other than You-Know-Who. But it will be a futile gesture. Mr. "1/3rd Of The GOP Primary Vote" is going to be the nominee. He's going to win the big, left-leaning states on Tuesday. Huckabee will stay in and deny Romney a one-on-one contest...

    Well, the media finally got the negative, slash-and-burn, “dirty politics” South Carolina primary they’ve been looking for. They just weren’t looking for it from the Democrats. Remember how the national media flocked to South Carolina looking for campaign fliers accusing John McCain of having a drug-addicted illegitimate daughter with ties to al-Qaeda? Who knew she would turn out to be Michelle Obama? The Clintons unloaded on Barack Obama down in South Carolina, running commercials so ridiculously untrue that even Bill Clinton couldn’t defend them. The Clintons were forced to pull their attack ads on Thursday. But by then, it didn’t...
  • Real ‘Scoop’ on McCain: Republicans better see he’s not real front-runner

    “Front-runner.” “Winner.” “Inevitable.” Since Saturday’s South Carolina primary, this is how the mainstream media have been describing Sen. John McCain and his bid for the GOP nomination. And once again, the mainstream media is wrong. John McCain isn’t “inevitable.” He’s not even “likely” at this point in the race. To see why, just look at his vote totals from the primaries thus far. John McCain is the incredible shrinking candidate. In 2000, McCain was just another senator running as a maverick against the GOP establishment’s legacy candidate, George W. Bush. His huge 49 percent to 30 percent clobbering of Bush...

    Good morning and - at the risk of shutting down school systems and sending city workers fleeing in panic onto the icy streets - Merry Christmas! This is the year that Santa Claus was officially declared a subversive agent by McCall Middle School in Winchester. This was the year that Andover forced the Salvation Army to deploy bell-less bell ringers outside old Town Hall. The year a goose-stepping government goon in Salem declared holiday bake sales at schools and churches verboten. Like the Burgermeister Meisterburger before her, she has ruled that Granny’s non-government-authorized Christmas cookies are simply too dangerous to...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton may have achieved the politically impossible: She has managed to out-Kerry John Kerry himself. Sen. Flip-Flop, you recall, famously claimed that, on the issue of funding U.S. troops, he voted “for the $87 billion before I voted against it.” Clinton, on the other hand, managed to declare herself both for and against driver’s licenses for illegal aliens at the same time. When it comes to illegal immigration, Hillary is forgainst! Don’t believe me? Ask her yourself. Wait, Tim Russert already tried that. During Tuesday night’s Democratic debate he twice asked her the same yes-or-no question: Does she...

Her pediatrician grilled her about alcohol and drug abuse.Not my daughter’s boozing.

    In America’s collective memory, 9/11 will forever be a fireball blackening the New York skyline, or a Virginia firefighter’s smoke-streaked face. But in fact, Boston played a central role in the plot of this horrible tale. Among those killed on 9/11 were 203 Massachusetts residents or people with strong ties to the state. More than half the hijackers boarded their flights in Boston - twice as many as Dulles or Newark. At least two of the terrorists spent pre-9/11 at a hotel in Newton. And when 9/11 mastermind Mohammad Atta assembled his terror team, it wasn’t in New York or...

    Skeptics of the Al Gore School of “We’re All Gonna Die” Climate Panic often refer to global warming as a religion. Close, but not quite. It’s more like a cult - a suicide cult. It’s tempting (pardon the pun) to compare global warming alarmists to religious zealots because, like the devout, the beliefs of global panic kooks are impervious to reason. When NASA’s erroneous temperature readings were recently corrected, revealing no measurable change in temperature since 1998, global alarmists were, well, alarmed. (Aren’t they always?) And, like the religious, climate-change cultists can make any set of facts fit within their...
