Did Bush, Clear Channel conspire to fire Mike Malloy?

That's the question that liberals throughout the land are asking themselves today with the sad news that Air America Radio's late night host Mike Malloy has been fired. What clearer evidence do we need other than the gloating from the "Radio Equalizer"? Current speculation from many in the liberal community is that Karl Rove and... Keep reading >>>

Randi Rhodes at Hempfest 2006 (Seattle)

The sweet smell of Washington's state flower the magnolia was in the air as Air America host Randi Rhodes visited Seattle on or about 4:20PM on August 19 or 20 or so for this year's Hempfest. The "Fest" - as it's known to regulars - celebrates one of America's original crops, a versatile plant that... Keep reading >>>

Sheldon attacks Bill "Mr. Huffington" Maher

I really don't know exactly what is the dynamic between Arianna Huffington and Bill Maher, but I do know it takes great big brass ones to call him "Another Hollywood Sellout" in a post at the Huffington Post. My congratulations to Sheldon. ...Everyone that is doing business in Hollywood entertainment is first and foremost promoting... Keep reading >>>

"They" put Randi Rhodes on the no-fly list

Via this we learn that mysterious forces known only as "they" apparently put Randi Rhodes on a no-fly list, causing her inconvenience on fun a weekend getaway to Seattle which turned into tragedy.

Air America Radio loses Chattanooga affiliate WDOD

Our speculation was correct and it's official: Air America Radio has lost their affiliate in Chattanooga Tennessee. The decision to drop Air America talk show programming grew out of the format's failure to attract adequate advertiser support, [Danny Howard, director of programming and operations for WDEF and WDOD] said. The fact that Air America is... Keep reading >>>

Pat Buchanan on Al Franken show: Wed 1:30pm Eastern

On Wednesday August 23 at 1:30pm Eastern/10:30am Pacific, Al Franken will be speaking to Pat Buchanan about his latest book "State of Emergency: The Third World Invasion and Conquest of America."

Sheldon Drobny is all over the place

When confronted with a huge mass of verbage from Sheldon Drobny, how does one figure out what he's talking about? The last thing you want to do is - like me - try to watch TV and listen to the radio while scanning his latest entry. That means I lost his segue from intriguing... Keep reading >>>

Air America off WDOD 1310 AM Chattanooga?

In October 2005, Chattanooga, Tennessee's WDOD 1310 AM summarily deprived Earl Fruedenberg of his morning show (he'd been working there since 1965) and replaced him with Al Franken and company. Now, despite being unable to find anything about this elsewhere and despite that station still being listed as an AAR affiliate, it appears that WDOD... Keep reading >>>

Goodbye Al Franken, hello Shirley Caesar and Hezekiah Walker

There's about a 99.9944% chance most Air America fans have never heard of Shirley Caesar, Hezekiah Walker, Kirk Franklin or Yolanda Adams before. But, come Sept. 1, those and other gospel artists will be featured on WLIB, New York City's newest 24/7 all gospel all the time station. That station was formerly AAR's flagship, but...

Who said these insane Air America quotes?

The article here (via this) offers some quotes gleaned from two 90 minute Air America Radio shows. While, admittedly, I don't listen to AAR all that much for someone whose mandate is monitoring it, I believe I can match up the quote to who said it. 1) "The entire Bush crime family should be executed."...

Jerry Springer on Dancing with the Stars

In what is probably his cleanest, most reputable gig yet, Jerry Springer will be appearing on the show 'Dancing with the Stars' alongside Tucker Carlson and a host of other nobodies, also-rans, and no-talents. This is at least a more honorable gig than working on Air America Radio or - of course - shoveling... Keep reading >>>

The AAR co-founder sent a nastygram to former Los Angeles Times editor John Carroll, and got one in return: Dear Mr. Drobny, I'm sorry you think my father wouldn't approve of my working for Tribune Company. I'm also sorry you went to so much trouble researching his writings from the 1940s to make your point.... Keep reading >>>
