    Just when the furor over the BYU-San Diego State replay mess seemed to be subsiding a little bit, a San Diego sports radio host, Chris Ello, threw fuel on the fire with his hate-filled diatribe directed at BYU. Props to Patrick Kinahan of KFAN Radio (1320 AM) in Salt Lake City for catching the remarks (made Thursday) and replaying for his audience this morning. Here's the link to Ello's diatribe, which are as disturbing as you will probably ever hear on the radio. It will be interesting to see if this guy keeps his job. Ello later apologized for his...

    The canceling of a conservative radio show is being tied to Mike Lee and EnergySolutions, and Lee's opponent is pulling all advertising from the station because of it. Talk show host Bob Lonsberry lost his 10-year-old KNRS morning show on Wednesday due to what his employer said was poor ratings. "His audience numbers were going down," said station general manager Stu Stanek. He said listeners were also asking why the station was delaying Glenn Beck's show until after the drive time. With Lonsberry's contract coming due in a few months, they decided to make changes, Stanek said. But Lonsberry and...

The program was canceled when homer became ill. Homer, who was born and brought up in Philadelphia, initially owned three bars in the region. There listening to different shows over the radio made him almost a talk show freak that later initiated...

    Muslim Groups Opposed to ABC's Hiring of Radio Talk Show Host (CNSNews.com) - Three Arab and Muslim American advocacy groups are voicing their opposition to ABC's "Good Morning America" hiring talk-show host Glenn Beck, claiming he has "an obvious anti-Arab and anti-Muslim prejudice in his broadcasts." The Arab American Institute, American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, and the Muslim Public Affairs Council claim Beck made "threats and blatantly inaccurate statements" on his show. The groups sent a letter to ABC/Disney asking for a meeting to detail their concerns. They have also launched a membership action campaign urging supporters to contact ABC News over...

    Does America Still Deserve The Marines? (by Gunny Bob Newman, retired 20-year veteran of the Marine Corps) Not that I know what one is, but I do know what one looks like. A parabolic wave is a thing that looks like a wave when viewed from the side. Parabolic waves appear on screens that are part of certain machines and computers and other technical devices. I suspect they are useless, really, but scientists and technicians like them because they look cool and by turning just about any dial, one can change the height and frequency of the wave. The war...

    President Vladimir Putin will host a televised call-in show in a few days, and he is expected to use the event to readdress speculation that he might stay for a third term and to tout a multibillion-dollar boost to social spending. "The presidential administration is sorting out the last details for the call-in show and will then set a date for it," a Kremlin spokeswoman said Wednesday, speaking on customary condition of anonymity. "The plans are for the president to answer to the people before the end of this month." Nezavisimaya Gazeta, citing Kremlin sources, said the show was scheduled...

    A Good Speech by a Good Man September 15, 2005 06:45 PM PST Perfect pitch returned tonight, and the president's looks backward and forward were on target. As Chris Matthews observed, it sounded a little LBJ/FDR-like in its vows about the underclass of the recovery region, but that is exactly why it worked so well: That is what needs to happen, and he identified the best approaches in the empowerment of entrepeneurs and the retraining of the evacuees. The enterprise zone could prove a turbo charged motor to the effort, and the promise of innovation was well delivered. So too...

The internet is ready to help. by Hugh Hewitt 09/02/2005 12:00:00 AM YESTERDAY America's emergency relief effort went into high gear and is likely to stay there for weeks, as all across the country citizens open their wallets to help out their fellow countrymen. Before long, however, the extreme needs will be met and the long-term rebuilding will get underway. At that point it will become much less obvious how ordinary Americans can...

    Rocky Mountian News column ^ | September 2nd, 2005 | Mike Rosen
    Other than a three-day weekend, most Americans don't give much thought to what they're supposed to be observing on Labor Day. In practice, it's become little more than the unofficial celebration of the end of summer. Back in 1882, when New York City's Central Labor Union inaugurated the holiday, the labor movement was quite a different thing than it is today. Once upon a time, workers had valid grievances regarding pay, hours, conditions and safety. Unions served a positive role in leveraging the collective influence of their members to pressure management to redress those grievances. But labor unions are political...

    The host of a nationally syndicated radio show was seriously injured Thursday afternoon in a motorcycle crash near Mount Spokane State Park. Laurie Roth, affectionately called the "Annie Oakley of the airwaves" by listeners, was airlifted to Sacred Heart Medical Center after she collided with a deer on state Highway 206 about 3:30 p.m., said Washington State Patrol Trooper Jeff Sevigney. She was listed in critical condition Thursday night.

    The pain is mind-boggling. I hate that parachute and every other thing and event that partially disabled me. And I hate the fact that I wasn’t clever enough to realize long ago how I would pay much later in life for my knowing and willing abuse on my body in the Corps. My machismo stopped me from seeking the medical attention I needed after each injury while on active duty, and sometimes the situation was such that seeing the corpsman or battalion surgeon wasn’t an option at the moment. C’est la guerre. But what I hate the most is how...

    I am abnormal and wish to explain. I am abnormal, according to leftist extremist Reggie Rivers, who writes a column in the Denver Post, because I believe in defending (and have defended with my life, as have millions more true Americans) the flag which represents the principles for which so many Americans have died. Frankly, I am proud to be so abnormal. In his latest anti-American tirade in the way-to-the-left Post, "Radical Reggie" continues his never-ending attacks on America by stating that "the flag is not without its problems." People like Osama bin Laden love it when Americans attack their...

    MILWAUKEE — A radio talk show host drew criticism Thursday after calling Condoleezza Rice an "Aunt Jemima" and saying she isn't competent to be secretary of state. John Sylvester, the program director and morning personality on WTDY-AM in Madison, said in a phone interview Thursday that he used the term on Wednesday's show to describe Rice and other blacks as having only a subservient role in the Bush administration. Rice has served as President Bush's national security adviser and was named this week to replace the departing Colin Powell as secretary of state. Sylvester, who is white, also referred to...

    THE LEFT’S CIVILITY SCAM By Don Feder Last week, the inimitable Ann Coulter was on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” to discuss her new book, “How To Talk To A Liberal (If You Must)”. Co-host Charles Gibson – a media cheerleader for the Kerry campaign, who once expressed disbelief that anyone could question the Democratic nominee’s “distinguished war record” -- used the interview as an occasion to deliver another unctuous homily on the need for civility in politics. For the left, civility is a one-way street, running toward them – but never in the opposite direction. Gibson, who hosted the second...

    When Bias Bites How Long Can a Dissident Survive Inside a Partisan News Station? By Brian Maloney e-mail Brian Maloney at RadioEqualizer@aol.com 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...
