  • Just hung up on by screener at Mike Gallagher show

    970 AM radio | 12/6/16 | Me, myself, & I
    The talk show host Mike Gallagher is currently discussing how outraged he was when a woman corrected his "Merry Christmas" greeting to her, telling him she "would prefer a 'Happy Holidays' greeting". I also prefer a "Happy Holidays" greeting because his original greeting would not be appropriate to me. I called the show to tell the call screener this (I NEVER call in to radio shows!). I was very respectful and told the call screener that I didn't even need to go on the air, but just wanted to get my opinion across. She took my name. As soon as...

  • Fox’s Chris Wallace: Kelly Clarkson ‘Could Stay Off the Deep Dish Pizza

    04/03/2015 2:33:44 PM PDT · by drewh · 88 replies ^ | 1:24 pm, April 3rd, 2015
    Chris Wallace should probably stick to grilling Republican presidential candidates. Somehow, during a radio interview with conservative host Mike Gallagher on Friday, the Fox News Sunday host got pulled into a discussion about former American Idol star Kelly Clarkson’s weight. The two men were discussing Little Caesars’ bacon-wrapped crust pizza when Gallagher brought up “fat shaming.” “Have you seen Kelly Clarkson? You know the singer, Kelly Clarkson?” Gallagher asked Wallace. “Holy cow, did she blow up.” At first, it seemed that Wallace was going to avoid joining in on this bizarre line of questioning, saying he thinks Clarkson has “got...

    On other threads recently, the faux-conservative bone fides of Hugh Hewitt and Michael Medved have been sharply questioned in light of recent events. I'm wondering whether Mike Gallagher needs to be added to that list. I can pick up three "Conservative Talk Radio" stations on my way to and from work, but I seldom listen to one of them because it features lightweights. My wife borrowed my truck yesterday, and must have been playing with the dials, because it was tuned to that third station when I got in this morning. Some guy - I couldn't place him at first,...
  • Megyn Kelly Guests Take On Left’s Favorite Target: ‘Demonizing Cruz Only Makes Him Stronger’

    Freshman Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has become an increasingly controversial figure in American politics as evidenced by comments MSNBC’s Chris Matthews made this week comparing Cruz to Nazi sympathizer Father Coughlin. Fox’s Bill O’Reilly laid into Matthews last night for equating his “black Irish” looks with Cruz’s and today Megyn Kelly picked up the thread by asking what it is about the senator that makes liberals so angry. Conservative radio host Mike Gallagher said people are only attacking Cruz because he’s “effective.” He said people are “impressed” with the “tea party darling” who “rose out of nowhere” and used this...

    Talkers, the definitive magazine covering the talk radio industry released its annual “Heavy Hundred” list of the most important hosts in the country.

    In November of 2010 in Don’t be VAT stupid Herman Cain writes: ``A national retail sales tax on top of all the confusing and unfair taxes we have today is insane! It gives the out-of-control bureaucrats and politicians in denial one more tool to lie, deceive, manipulate and destroy this country.`` The fact is, Herman is now proposing a new tax, a national retail sales tax, in addition to taxing corporate profits and incomes, and also would tax the wages working people earn. Herman Cain essentially admitted in the above mentioned article his existing plan is ``insane!`` So, why do...

    DOWNTOWN — This year's November election kicked off a hard-hitting town hall discussion Sunday night by conservative radio talk show hosts on issues ranging from the "tea party" movement to California's business environment. About 1,300 people attended 870 AM KRLA radio's "Town hall 2010" forum at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, where radio hosts Dennis Prager, Michael Medved, Mike Gallagher and Kevin James took on some of the state's and nation's most pressing issues, including the upcoming Nov. 2 election. Republicans could gain 20 to 90 Democratic seats in the House of Representatives and the Senate in this year's election,...

  • Farewell to a leader

    01/16/2009 8:19:48 AM PST · by Kaslin · 27 replies · 833+ views ^ | January 16, 2009 | Mike Gallagher
    There is a number of ways to describe how it feels to sit a few feet from the leader of the free world in the Oval Office at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in an informal, free-wheeling meeting with the President. Overwhelming. Surreal. Amazing. Educational. Inspirational. Most of all, one is consumed with a feeling of incredible gratitude that this privilege and opportunity has been extended. I suppose the only thing more thrilling than spending an hour and fifteen minutes with a handful of my talk radio colleagues in the Oval Office this week for a combination on-the-record/off-the-record visit with the President...
  • Divorce time for Laura and Salem after today’s show?

    The Salem-owned stations have provided the major-market backbone for (Laura) Ingraham’s Talk Radio Network-syndicated show, but today appears to be their last day together. That’s what lies behind yesterday’s announcement that in southern California, Saul Levine’s L.A.-market KGIL/1260 and San Diego-market sister XESURF/540 will pick up Laura beginning next week. That’s because Laura’s off of Salem’s KRLA (870). I believe she’ll also be off the Salem conservative talk stations in places like Philadelphia (WNTP/990) and Chicago (WIND/560). Earlier this Summer, Laura was locked out (she says) by Talk Radio Network as they began to negotiate a renewal of her five-year...

    A Los Angeles man is suing conservative Talker KRLA-AM/Los Angeles claiming the station, and parent Salem Communications, misrepresented their broadcast license by serving the interest of the Republican Party rather than the public reports the Glendale News Press. David Birke filed the complaint on August 27 against seven talk hosts, Salem and Salem President/CEO Ed Atsinger, claiming that they use the public airwaves to push a Republican agenda. Syndicated hosts Laura Ingraham, Dennis Prager, Michael Medved, Hugh Hewitt, Dennis Miller, Mike Gallagher and Kevin James are listed as defendants. According to the complaint, "Salem Entities and Atsinger had no intention...

    Watching a steady stream of Democrats like Harry Reid, Dick Durbin, and Chuck Schumer each take their turn delightedly pummeling President Bush over the war in Iraq today, I couldn’t help but think of fellow conservatives who are starting to give aid and comfort to these Democrat Party loyal oppositionists. According to Byron York of the National Review, the Republican Party base has simply decided to throw Mr. Bush under the wheels of the bus. Since so many of us disagree with him on things like illegal immigration and Scooter Libby, York opines that a whole bunch of Republican loyalists...

  • Gallagher Ga-Ga For Obama: 'Solid Ideas, A Moderate'

    Fox & Friends Weekend | Mark Finkelstein
    Let's be generous and chalk it up to the early-morning hour. Otherwise we'd have to come down hard on radio host Mike Gallagher, who as a guest on this morning's Fox & Friends Weekend went ga-ga for Barack Obama. It's one thing to acknowledge as did Mike that Obama has appeal as a candidate. But, interviewed by Keran Chetry, it was Gallagher's praise for Obama's substance that shocked, coming as it did from a putative conservative. Said Gallagher: "He's got some pretty solid ideas. He's a moderate." Moderate?? If Mike would check Obama's record, he'd find that in addition to...
  • Olbermann Slams Bush's 'Radio Yackers' Meeting (calls meeting at Whitehouse 'Legion of Doom')

    NewsBusters ^ | Wednesday October 18th, 2006 | Brad Wilmouth
    On Tuesday's Countdown show, MSNBC host Keith Olbermann fretted about an Oval Office meeting of President Bush and several conservative talk radio hosts -- verbally tagged by Olbermann as "right-wing radio yackers" and labelled on-screen as the "Legion of Doom" -- as the Countdown host contended that Bush was devoting "90 minutes worth of your taxpayer dollars" to the meeting. And in an amusing faux pas, Olbermann's staff, for the second time in less than a year, accidentally displayed a photograph of former liberal Democratic Senator Max Cleland instead of conservative talk radio host Neal Boortz. During the show's opening...
