From radio buddy Scott Fybush,  on Northeast Radio Watch, on Monday: *The final collapse of New York-based Air America Radio made big industry headlines at week’s end, but the bankruptcy liquidation of the pioneering progressive talk network won’t affect many timeslots on any NERW-land radio stations. There were no full-time Air America affiliates in the […]

Ask me again why Mass Transit doesn’t work. Apparently when you’re only half black, your skin gets a might thinner. The list of things that cannot be spoken grows ever longer with this guy. What do you suppsoe would happen if he ever had governmental power to back up his obviously desperate need for approval? The […]

That’s OK, Jon. Tell ya what; Greenwald can claim I’m pro-torture, if he likes… because under some conditions I am. .. and for all the moralizing that’s been thrown at the issue, nobody’s ever come up with an even remotely lucid reason against it that can be used under all conditions, thereby negating the blanket ban […]

Scott Fybush over at NERW, says: There’s a lineup change to report at WWRL (1600 New York), as the Access.1-owned talker pulls more Air America programming off its schedule. Instead of Air America’s Lionel from 9 AM-noon, WWRL now carries two hours of infomercials followed by a local show at 11 with Ron Samuels. At […]

James Joyner:   The bitterness of the Democratic presidential race kicked up another notch yesterday, with the discovery that popular Air America radio host Randi Rhodes recently performed a profanity-laced standup routine in which both Geraldine Ferraro and Hillary Clinton were repeatedly referred to as “big f-ing whores” (minus the sanitization, naturally).

 Apparently unable to learn from past mistakes, or just too unhinged to know better, Air America Radio host Randi Rhodes has aired another psychotic “parody” skit. This time, the faux ad, supposedly for Mitt Romney, says his supporters will commit mass killings if John McCain becomes the nominee.Airing on Super Tuesday, the recorded bit marks […]

Eric Florack on October 19th, 2007

Randi Rhodes shows remarkable resilience, an extraordinary capability and digging herself into a deeper hole, given she has so few teeth to dig with, anymore. The Radio Equalizer asks a number of good questions, which I’ll answer, here. Why did she send an email to Air America staffers claiming to have been mugged if there […]

Interesting article in The American Spectator this morning from Shawn Macomber, speaking of the Randi Rhodes thing, yesterday: A Democratic Underground member went so far as to divine from the assault the opening salvos of “an ideology war between conservatives and liberals that will rip this country apart…a war that will be bloody, and claim […]

Our sympathy to Randi Rhodes. May she get well soon. Our deep felt animus the Bitsblog’s Jerk of the Day, Err America’s Jon Elliot, who manged to enage his gator sized mouth before activating his brain.  Barooosk, Talking Radio : Elliott was extremely agitated when he reported on the incident. He opened his show by saying […]
