'Today' Ignores Jane Fonda's Liberal Talk Radio Flop

Almost a year ago, the "Today" show went out of its way to promote the "legendary" Jane Fonda's new liberal radio network but since the Women's Radio Network's final broadcast on Friday, "Today" has yet to mention the latest liberal talk radio failure.

The following excerpt is from an announcement by GreenStone Media's CEO, Susan Ness. Ness blamed the network's demise on, what she believed, was the ignorant perception that they were "too feminist."

We developed fabulous shows, but we were not successful getting station carriage. Perhaps it was because we were ignorantly perceived as being too "feminist" or too "political." (It is odd that radio executives consider Rush Limbaugh entertainment and not political, but women—well, that's another story.) All they had to do was listen!
