    The vast arid wasteland known as liberal radio is becoming even more barren. Loose-cannon lefty Randi Rhodes is pulling the plug on her show. News of Rhodes' impending departure came in a terse statement from Premiere Networks, which broadcasts her show through 35 affiliates -- "[We] can confirm that Randi Rhodes has decided to end her national radio program. We've had a successful partnership with Randi for several years and we wish her all the best for the future. Premiere Networks will conclude syndication and production of Randi Rhodes on May 16, 2014." (Audio clips after the jump) Rhodes spent...

    In case anyone is in doubt that Liberal Talk Radio-land can display the tendency to all hit the same talking points, many liberal hosts all hit the same post-debate theme on Thursday: Mitt Romney only won because he shamelessly lied his face off. (They find it charming when Clinton does.) Al Sharpton was outraged, as if he never lied as he was callously spreading the Tawana Brawley racial hoax: “I think there is nothing admirable and applaud-able [?] about a man standing up 90 minutes and making his case by distortion and lies." The Reverend added: “Mitt Romney gave a...
  • New Moonbat Line of Attack: Rubio Campaigning With Romney as 'Homoerotic'

    Imagine if Rush Limbaugh said this about the two Johns ticket of Kerry and Edwards in 2004. Randi Rhodes does what she can to make her presence known in that barren wasteland known as liberal radio. Unfortunately, it usually consists of little more than bloviating inanities. (audio clip after page break) Here, for example, is her take on GOP Senator Marco Rubio of Florida campaigning with Mitt Romney in Pennsylvania -- I guess I'll call it the, is Marco Rubio too short to stand next to Mitt Romney tour/audition? That's what it is. And you know, and the answer is...

You know, these women, somebody really needs to go repossess their ovaries," Rhodes said. "Really, truly, they have no right to them. They are fabulous, little organs and they have absolutely no right to be estrogen-bearing beings. Okay?

    Don't let anyone claim that liberal talk radio show hosts don't wish for bad things to happen. On Monday's show, Randi Rhodes was giddy about the prospect of global warming causing the oceans to rise enough to engulf Rush Limbaugh's Florida home: And so, the global warming deniers -- like Rush Limbaugh, whose house I can't wait until the ocean swells and eats his house -- and he will be the first to go because he's got the best location!

    Youll get no argument from me that Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, is crazier than a drunk bed bug on Halloween. He has very strange ideas about winding down the federal government and monetary policy that might have worked in 1776 but wont work in 2010 and isnt willing to compromise. However, theres one thing that despite all his faults he isnt and that is anti-Semitic. So while all these lefty Helen Thomas apologists are to so eager to draw a moral equivalency by saying, Well _________ said this __________ and he didnt get fired, its not a valid argument. Why?...

    It's a simple law of economics, right? If there's a demand for a certain service or good, that business has a strong shot at thriving. Since the now-defunct Air America shut down for the last time earlier this year, the casual observer must conclude that no one wanted to hear left-wing diatribes over the broadcast airwaves. But that's not the case according to a panel on HLN's April 5 "The Joy Behar Show." This meeting of the minds, consisting of Behar, GQ's Ana Marie Cox and liberal talk show host Randi Rhodes, accused conservative talker Rush Limbaugh of playing victim...

    Don't be surprised to soon see Keith Olbermann display a picture of Randi Rhodes on his "Worst Person In The World" segment while pompously intoning, "Have you no shame, madam?" And what would be the cause for this "honor?" Well, yesterday Randi emerged briefly from radio obscurity to blast Olbermann's one hour special comment on ObamaCare that he delivered earlier this week. And it wasn't just a quick blast. She went on a rampage against him for her entire three hour show. To get an idea of the tone of the attack, here is what Randi posted on her blog:...

Here is what Randi posted on her BLOG:Last night's Countdown on MSNBC was devoted to a one-hour "special comment" by Keith Olbermann. I always thought a comment was a brief observation. Evidently I was wrong about the "brief" part. I'm sorry, but that was the most self-indulgent hour I've heard since Emerson, Lake & Palmer broke up. Keith! Talking for an entire hour isn't a comment.

    It looks like talk radio host Randi Rhodes is about to make waves again. Not for anything she is currently doing since Randi seems to have faded into near total obscurity ever since joining Premiere Radio Networks back in May. As was the case with her comments criticizing Al Franken and Ed Schultz whom she accused of being bought and paid for by Democrats on Capitol Hill, this radio show was broadcast before she entered her current face-on-the-milk-carton status. This latest interview, uncovered by Naked Emporer News, seems destined to go viral on the Web. It features Randi Rhodes back...

    ....Peel away that thin layer of overt partisan spin, however, and it becomes clear that unease related to Franken's legendary personal baggage remains as strong as ever. Worse, his recent words and actions have generated new anger, this time from the left. Leading the charge on that front is MSNBC / syndicated radio libtalker Ed Schultz, who has been outspoken this week in airing grievances against a politician whose candidacy he strongly supported. Schultz believes Franken has already sold out his beliefs in exchange for Beltway-style good 'ol boys acceptance. From Tuesday's radio program, here's the exclusive audio and transcript:...

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. Yes, I know Randi is on the air (or so it...

    No need to publish milk cartons with the picture of Randi Rhodes on them. Call off the APB alerts. 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. The irony of Randi's return is that it is being made possible by her new syndicate, Premiere Radio Networks, best known for syndicating such shows as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and other conservatives. Here is how the return of Randi was covered in the Radio Equalizer: Not everybody gets three shots...

    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...

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.

    Just how far are lefty pundits willing to go to smear Sarah Palin? On behalf of the "progressive" movement, libtalker Randi Rhodes seems determined to sink to new depths of moral depravity, with the limits of imagination as her only impediment. Less than a week after her wildly dishonest claim that John McCain was "well-treated" during his wartime imprisonment in Vietnam, Rhodes is at it again, this time making a strong inference that Palin likes to sleep with teenage boys. It's further evidence of a widespread smear campaign that involves lefty bloggers, libtalkers and the mainstream news media. With this...

    In a bigtime case of the pot calling the kettle black, liberal talk radio host Ed Schultzisattacking the credibility of Air America radio host Randi Rhodes concerning her highly dubious story about her non-mugging last Sunday outside an Irish bar in New York. Brian Maloney of the Radio Equalizer has been on top of this Randi Rhodes "mugging" story from the beginning. Maloney yesterday highlighted the credibility problems of Rhodes' lame explanation on the air Thursday of her non-mugging: Sadly, the explanation of events given during a seven-minute opening segment yesterday simply doesn't hold water, especially her reason for initially...

    SEAN HANNITY, CO-HOST: Last weekend, Airhead America talk show host Randi Rhodes was reportedly mugged and beaten in New York City. Another liberal host, John Eliot, immediately blamed the supposedly brutal beating on a possible right-wing hate machine. Other left-wing media outlets followed suit. As it turns out, Rhodes wasn't beaten at all. It's believed that she fell while taking her dog for a walk. So will liberal groups like Media Matters go after irresponsible media outlets that repeated this unfounded story?

    As reported here in NewsBusters yesterday, liberals immediately began blaming conservatives for the supposed mugging of Air America talk show host Randi Rhodes on a New York street. After much blame cast in the leftwing blogosphere against evil rightwing muggers as the culprits, it turned out that there was no mugging in the first place. Supposedly it was just an accident. However, there is now some interesting speculation as to just what caused Randi's non-mugging. Here is an interesting observation made by commentator GBW over at Gawker.com in a post amusingly titled, Was Talk Show Host Randi Rhodes Jumped By...

    <p>Liberal talk-show host Randi Rhodes suffered painful facial injuries Sunday night when she slammed to the ground in an murky incident alternately described as a mugging, a fall, a drunken stumble and a right-wing hate attack.</p> <p>The hullabaloo began Monday night when Jon Elliott, another network host, reported that the loose-lipped lib, who takes her name from Ozzy Osbourne's late guitarist, Randy Rhoads, had been mugged at 39th Street and Park Avenue, a hop, skip and jump from her apartment.</p>

    Okay, I admit it. I am the one who mugged Randi Rhodes. I had to silence her voice because Randi, via her radio show, was making such a huge impact on the electorate. Using money from a secret Rovian source I flew up to New York and accosted her on the street. Oops! You mean Randi Rhodes was NOT mugged? Damn that is so inconvenient for the DUmmies who had a field day alleging all sort of rightwing conspiracies to take Randi out of action as you can see in this THREAD incorrectly titled, "Randi Rhodes is the Victim...

    Earlier today, the port side of the blogosphere erupted in righteous indignation as reports that Air America radio host Randi Rhodes got mugged began to swirl. Many bloggers started blaming a nameless conservative mugger, and then began extending the indictment to the entire conservative movement. It served their prejudices to think that conservative meanies would lay in wait for Rhodes just to keep her from speaking Truth to Power, etc etc etc. The only fly in the ointment? Rhodes never got mugged at all (via Michelle Malkin): Air America radio host Randi Rhodes is temporarily off the air, but claims...

    NEW YORK - An attorney for Air America radio personality Randi Rhodes is disputing on on-air report by a colleague that the liberal talk show host was attacked on a Manhattan street. Air America's Jon Elliott announced on his late-night show Monday that Rhodes had been assaulted Sunday while walking her dog about a block from her Park Avenue home. He also speculated that the attack was the work of "the right wing hate machine." Elliott's account of the incident, however, was contested Tuesday by Rhodes attorney, Robert Gaulin.
