P.S. I have it on good authority that Limbaugh is hemorrhaging advertisers in the TOP 2 markets. In fact, on the #1 talk radio station in America, they're GIVING away spots 9a-noon.

Do some research Michael!! Lazy lazy lazy! Tim Conway Jr has been ON THE AIR in Los Angeles for 15 years!! BTW- The "up and comers" all have horrible ratings. And one of the members of that list is free if you pay for Limbaugh. Hardly a ringing endorsement. Talk radio on AM is dying for sure, but compelling people, talking, is still relevant. The practitioners just need to embrace social media and own the show.

For FUCK sake! They had ALL week to edit down ONE......ONE......ONE hour of radio! You should HEAR their outtakes! For 25 years the smartest audience in radio was bamboozled by these two! Recycled jokes, "got your nose" comedy...jesus it was like Ron and Dong for PhD's!!

I would nominate Don O'Neil for honorable mention. As of Wednesday 25 April 2012, he was unaware that John McCain is a former POW. As he was clumsily lurching towards a punchline about McCain doinking Filipino hookers circa 1967, his slurring enabler pointed out that McCain was, literally, otherwise detained ("one of those POW guys").
.....OK...if we're all done hurling the invective. I would submit, and history is my guide, that polarity in printed media was the NORM throughout our history. To wit: "Republican" newspapers and "Democratic" newspapers existed in every city across this country. You're all aware of this right? Right wingers believe Obama wasn't born here, and Libtards believe thrownig my money at poor people does them a favor. What's so different about basic cable in 2011, versus newspapers 100 years ago? Nothing.
"I......live in the Seattle area.....yet I BROADCAST in Los Angeles." Gene "Bean" Baxter of the #1 Kevin and Bean Show 106.7 KROQ FM. BTW- the demo follows the content. The myth of "the kids don't listen" is disspelled by the Adam Carolla Show's page views.
In medium/small markets, you're not making money if you're not in the top 3. Personally, Seattle could use a dose of John and Ken or Petros and Money.
OK, I'll bite. For argument sake...What, and be specific please, is Fox destroying? (Remember, Jobs censored iTunes and the App Store)
His presence in Damascus during this murder season is ENOUGH reason to question his rational abilities. The longer-form video isn't exactly exculpatory. How naive is Kucinich? He's clearly never met an evil man in his life. (the photo at left was one of my many meetings with evil men)
Oh yeah, the real reason I'm here today is to harangue anyone who ever had a kind word to say about Dennis Kucinich. http://dailycaller.com/2011/06/30/thedc-exclusive-rep-kucinich-praises-syrian-dictator-on-syrian-television-video/ He is, and has always been, a useful idiot for evil men. Bashir Assad is just the latest. Consider yourselves harangue...ed.
It was lucrative to Beck, not to Fox. How many gold-schleppers are out there? Do they ALL buy time at 2pm PST? You live by hyperbole, you die by hyperbole. It's tough to backstroke from where he's ventured. I'm still surprised (as a former Salt Lake City dweller)that NO ONE has detected the thinly veiled LDS dogma in his show! People who convert to any religion during adulthood (or at anytime) peg out my bullshitometer. Replace one addiction for another. Anyhoo, he's got his lottery ticket. He spun top 40 while I went to Desert Storm. He played Adult Contemporary when I went to Bosnia. He thumped his chest on a nationwide show when I lost hearing and gained shrapnel in SadrFuckingCity. Then I get back and find out that HE'S a patriot and I'm restarting my career. Let's all be honest, we all remember these precocious 12 year olds who did "magic shows" for the adults. They become asshats or reinvent themselves as flag-wavers. The one in my neighborhood plays violin and reminds you that he's "gifted." Belittle it if you will, but the socialization that happened while binge-drinking in Pullman from 1982-87 made me someone you can have a beer with. Entertaining adults instead of playing with kids your age makes you a dork or worse: Rusty Humphries.
Once again Hood, you are too insouciant for the room! Am I missing something.....? How does this make him a 1st Amendment hero? Confessing a crime is taking a stand for the 1st Amendment? Discuss.
Stewart had overused his not-so-artful rhetorical dodge. "I'm a comedian," would mean something, if he started his show with that disclaimer. Unfortunately, his audience thinks they're watching news. Stewart won't admit it, but he's responsible for that. James.....it's adolF. Unless you're searching for an excellent meat tenderizer.
for the final time..do NOT go to www.lemonparty.org it is NOT Jim McDermott. I wash my hands of the entire affair.

ahhhh... You actually think Dominique Strauss-Kahn is the exception? Clearly you've not spent much time in France. Yet you perpetuate the "sophisticated European" stereotype. And for the final time, it's not the Clinton hummer or Weiner's wiener....it's the LYING about it under oath or to Wolf Blitzer.

The way Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer are distancing themselves, it's like they want to play Hide The Weiner. Your thoughts?

Joanie, I'll rephrase my point more simply, in deference to you. You derided me for using a generality, then you engaged in generalities to bemoan our intolerance of liars. Don't use the old "What about the ACORN sting!" as a dodge. Stay on the Weiner.

Politicians don't lie about sex because WE are unsophisticated and ignorant. Many of them do it because they have been career sociopaths since Junior High. Others are simply asshats. There is nothing "sophisticated" about texting your wood (<----tawdry!) to a coed. ME "labeling all those people?" What about you 20 minutes ago? "Oh, I guess I have to be the one to say it: politicians lie about sex because Americans are so unsophisticated and ignorant. Simply put." MY sophistication is debatable, but I am not ignorant. So, spare the lecture. Without broad brushes, there'd be no Blatherwatch.

Oh yeah, I don't have a "blog name." I sign in with a Twitter account. The Dark Secret Place can be heard every Sunday on KFI AM 640. Or you can grab it on iTunes. Maybe I should go back to Scrilla?

I dunno .."Our electorate is neither as sophisticated nor intelligent as Europeans." What am I missing? That "sophistication" is why Strauss-Kahn wasn't exposed for 30 years. Drunk driving used to be funny as well. Maybe you should tell Lawrence (and by extension Michael) to refrain from the broad brush as well. But then again, sometimes stereotypes reinforce themselves. (i.e. Weiner's glee about Jewish women and oral sex)

Oh yeah, Anti-Dori.... So you admire a country if it's politicians' occasional maid-rapes are snickered at? How sophisticated. Tray sheek!

O'Donnell (and by extenson Hood) clumsily evades the right and wrong of this. Will the oh-so-tolerant voters of NY re-elect him? That's their bidness. Of COURSE they'll re-elect him! Is he a perverted betrayer?....Yyyyyyyes. But more importantly, even Weiner doesn't agree with O'Donnell (and by extension Hood) because he could've said "yeah, it's me," and it would've been over last week. But he LIED, so he must think it IS a big deal to his constituents Lawrence! (and by extension Michael). Republicans are brought down by sex, Democrats by tax-evasion. We know they all do it. What about the lying Michael (and by extension Lawrence). The other sex act exposed by Weinergate is the now Pro Forma fealty to a lefty media favorite. At least Weiner literally hangs to the left.
