I first “met” Ladd Ehlinger Jr. last year, when his movie Hive Mind came out on DVD. No shrinking violet, Ehlinger contacted me. After all, I wrote a lot about talk radio, right? Would I be interested in getting a copy of his latest flick about what would happen if a radio talker like Glenn [...]
I’m not a talk radio conservative in any shape or form. It’s not that I don’t recognize the talent and important of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck. Rather, it’s just not my style.
Even when I was a leftist I couldn’t get into Air America when it debuted. There’s something about the medium that [...]
I used to think the subtitle of this series should be “We watch Olbermann so you don’t have to,” except, as the numbers demonstrate, you’re not going to watch him no matter what we do. Let me go a step further and postulate that if you eliminated all the people like me who trawl through [...]
Rush Limbaugh keeps me busy. I write a weekly recap column that features audio highlights from the top conservative talk radio shows, plus news about the hosts. I sometimes struggle to find juicy morsels about them — all except Limbaugh. He’s the only one whose section I’m forced to cut every week, there’s so much [...]
At FrumForum, Tim Mak has an interview with Michael Medved that hails the prolific commentator as “the bravest man on radio.” It’s hard to disagree—Medved is one of the fiercest, most unapologetic advocates of conservatism around, and his show features dissenting callers more than most, regularly devoting entire “Disagreement Days” to letting disgruntled callers take [...]
I like Jake Tapper. I think Tapper is one of the few MSM big time TV people who don’t engage in what Bernie Goldberg dubbed the “Slobbering Love Affair” with Barack Obama. There is no doubt that Jake Tapper is a huge improvement over Clinton Administration hack George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week.
I don’t know [...]
Back in January, Abe Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) bizarrely accused Rush Limbaugh of anti-semitism. (Yeah, I know…)
Foxman picked a big target, and got blasted for it — not incidentally, because they purposely misrepresented what Rush said. (Yeah, I know…).
Now the ADL is going after smaller fish. I don’t mean the fact that they’re [...]
Rush Limbaugh is the Wayne Gretzky of talk radio. They say Gretzky, unlike 99% of the players on the ice, intuitively knew where the puck was going, and duly skated in that direction. Likewise, Limbaugh thinks a few steps ahead of both his competition and his enemies. It’s that quirk of the mind that helps [...]
Hoping to gain attention for his failing sitcom, Countdown, Left Cable’s biggest mouth, Keith Olbermann regularly makes outrageous charges against hosts with (way) bigger ratings, hoping to draw them into a fight and get his little program some attention.
Not for the first time, Olbermann took on Rush Limbaugh, who steadfastly refuses to give the MSNBC [...]
