NY Times Takes on Right-Wing 'Trash Radio' Host for ‘Islamophobia'
August 19th, 2018 3:55 PM
New York Times reporter Dan Bilefsky took on a right-wing radio host in Quebec, for some reason, on Sunday: “‘Trash Radio’ Host in Quebec City Fires Up Outrage, and Big Ratings.” From the start it was clear this would be no friendly profile like the one’s the Times once filed to to boost liberal radio hosts, like MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow in 2005, back when she…
Lefty Radio Host to Steyer: ‘Buy Clear Channel’ and Silence Trump!
June 29th, 2018 10:23 AM
Progressive radio host Thom Hartmann has some advice for impeachment crusader Tom Steyer — buy a radio network.
Hartmann wrote on left-wing Salon on June 26, “If liberal billionaires like Tom Steyer want to have a real and lasting impact on American politics, they should think seriously about buying a nationwide radio network.”
Al Franken’s Trumpian Vendetta Against ‘the Lying Right’
June 16th, 2017 11:16 AM
Al Franken’s recent book Giant of the Senate has a single aim, very much in line with Franken’s careers in media and politics: take down conservatives. Chock-full of quintessential nasty Franken wit, the book guides readers through Franken’s time on SNL, Air America, and – in recent years – the U.S. Senate. Reflections on (as well as various defenses of) his previous…
NYT 'Year in Pictures' Puts Liberal Illogic on Illegals on Display
December 31st, 2014 12:05 PM
Although many of the images are striking and well worth viewing, there's also a dose of the liberal politics of the New York Times on display in its "Year in Pictures" in today's paper.
The very first photo sets the Times' tone, depicting a Ferguson demonstrator with hands up confronted by a heavily-armed phalanx of police. But it is the commentary…
Randi Rhodes Quitting Radio, Slams Ex-Colleagues Maddow, Franken on Wa
April 26th, 2014 3:15 PM
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…
Ed Schultz Says Putin Undeterred, Then Questions Patriotism of 'SOB' R
March 20th, 2014 11:33 AM
Remember back in the Bush years when the left deemed dissent to be the most glorious form of patriotism? As every conservative knew, that allegedly principled belief was contingent upon a Republican serving as president.
Once a Democrat returned to the White House, this ardent trumpeting of dissent as humanity's highest calling oddly began falling into disrepute, as to be expected…
Mike Malloy: MLK Would Be 85 But J. Edgar Hoover and Govt. Murdered Hi
January 21st, 2014 12:13 PM
Would any Martin Luther King Day be complete without a liberal radio talker waxing conspiratorial about King's death while not citing a shred of evidence?
What a surprise it wasn't that this was heard yesterday from Mike Malloy, a leftist so beyond the pale he was once fired by the ardent redistributors at now-defunct Air America Radio. (Audio clips after the jump)
Bozell Column: Liberals On The Lying Frequency
August 25th, 2012 8:24 AM
As easy as it might be to forget them in the cobwebs of the AM radio dial, the liberal pretenders to the Rush Limbaugh throne are still broadcasting, and they're often utterly, shamelessly ridiculous. Case in point: Even Al Sharpton lamely used his radio show to defend Joe Biden's anti-Republican "they want to put y'all in chains" race baiting in front of a black audience…
Montel Williams Defends Suicide Wish on Bachmann Moments After Decryin
March 10th, 2012 10:11 AM
As he appeared as a guest on Friday's Piers Morgan Tonight on CNN, moments after decrying Rush Limbaugh's recent "slut" comment, liberal talk radio host Montel Williams defended his infamous suggestion that Michele Bachmann should kill herself by decapitation as being unrelated to the recent Limbaugh matter.
While he was discussing his encounter with a wounded American…
NPR Spotlights Detractors of Papal Visit To Spain, Omits 428,000 Plann
August 12th, 2011 7:19 PM
NPR pretended that there wasn't a single supporter of Pope Benedict XVI in Spain on Friday's Morning Edition, choosing to devote an entire report on the "many people are grumbling at the cost" of the upcoming papal visit to the country. Correspondent Lauren Frayer not only failed to mention the 428,000 people from around the world who are registered for the World Youth Day…
Hannity, Bozell Discuss Hate-filled Rhetoric From Lefties like Ed Schu
January 14th, 2011 10:46 AM
"Rush Limbaugh needs to choke to death on his own fat," deranged left-wing radio show host Mike Malloy hissed on his February 18, 2009 program.
Michele Bachmann should "slit [her] wrist!" Montel Williams told his Air America radio show audience in September 2009.
"We ought to rip [Dick Cheney's heart] out and kick it around and stuff it back in him," MSNBC…
GOP Strategist Schools Ed Schultz and Former Air America Host
September 13th, 2010 11:09 PM
Republican strategist Ron Christie on Monday demonstrated why Keith Olbermann is smart to not have conservatives on his program, for most MSNBC hosts are just not up to the challenge.Appearing on the "Ed Show" to address some comments Newt Gingrich recently made about President Obama, Christie refuted former Air America host Jack Rice's contention that Gingrich was being racist."I…
Rhodes View of Why People Listen to Rush: 'He's on Every Radio Station
April 6th, 2010 9:25 AM
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 "…
Former Air America CEO Blames 'Darwinian World' of Market Forces for F
February 12th, 2010 11:44 AM
The former CEO of Air America, Danny Goldberg, has been kind enough to provide us with some comedy entertainment in an article, Air America Radio, RIP -- It Didn't Have to Be This Way. Actually, Danny, it did have to be that way due to those market forces at work that you castigate. However, we all owe you a vote of thanks for coming up with several incredibly lame but laughable excuses to…
