Liberal Mike Malloy’s Anti-Gun Hysteria: Says He’ll Make False Reports to Police, Advocates Murder

-by Warner Todd Huston

Like all liberals, radio host Mike Malloy thinks that “the law” is essentially a meaningless concept and that because he is pure of liberal heart he should be allowed to do whatever he wants even if it is to file false police reports, bear false witness against others, and scare people by causing an illicit panic over gun owners who are following Georgia’s new open carry law.

Malloy claims to be a gun owner himself–another bit of hypocrisy, that–but he truly despises Georgia’s new open carry law. Despite that the Georgians among whom he lives have voted for the open carry law and despite that his narrow minded, anti-Second Amendment mentality is accepted by only a tiny minority of Georgians, Malloy claims he is ready to battle the open carry law by breaking the law himself… because, you know, he should only have to follow those laws he likes.

WIND Kicks Joe Walsh Off The Air, Station Refused to Allow Honest Discussion of Racism

June 20, 2014 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Chicago, Entertainment, Illinois, Joe Walsh, Radio, Republicans, Talk Radio, Warner Todd Huston | No Comments

-By Warner Todd Huston

Former Congressman Joe Walsh joined WIND AM 560 not long after he left Congress and has been doing a great, fearless job on the air. The station was even beginning to look into syndicating him. But now, because he tried to have an honest discussion about racism, the station got cold feet and suspended him until further notice.

Here is some of what the Chicago Sun-Times said today

According to posts on former U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh’s Twitter account Thursday night, the conservative radio talk-show host was kicked off the air on WIND-AM (560) for using racial slurs while trying to have a discussion about racial slurs.

In a series of tweets posted about 7 p.m., Walsh says: “Just got kicked off the air until further notice. Tried to have honest discussion about racist terms and management censored my language.”

And: “I’m trying to have an honest, adult conversations about words without resorting to alphabet soup phrases (C-word, N-word, etc).”

The posts said the discussion involved the ethical debate about the name of the pro football team in Washington, D.C.: the Redskins.

Joe’s show is from 5PM to 8PM weekdays.

You can follow Joe on Twitter at https://@WalshFreedom.

This is what Joe sent out on Twitter today: “Want to hear what I ACTUALLY said last night? https://soundcloud.com/am560theanswer/the-joe-walsh-show-june-19-2014.

Pope Francis Tells Rush Limbaugh ‘I Am Not a Marxist’

-By Warner Todd Huston

Three days ago I discussed why Time magazine picked Catholic Pope Francis as its “man of the year.” We noted that the only reason the magazine would have picked this months-old Pope for its cover is because of his recent Marxist-styled attack on capitalism. Now the Pope has come out to assure his flock and warn commentators like Rush Limbaugh that he isn’t a Marxist.

Last week conservative talker Rush Limbaugh lambasted the Pope’s address from two weeks ago saying that his attack on capitalism was “pure Marxism.” For much of last week the media here and abroad went gaga over Rush’s “attack” on the Pope.

Now the Pope himself is trying to ally fears that he is a Marxist, telling Limbaugh and other critics that he isn’t one.

During an interview with the Italian newspaper La Stampa, the Pope said that Marxism is wrong.

Liberal Radio Host Says Ambassador Stevens’ Death is His Own Fault

-By Warner Todd Huston

During a discussion of the 2012 terror attacks on our embassy facilities in Benghazi, Libya, left-wing radio host Leslie Marshall engaged in a bout of blaming the victim by saying Ambassador Stevens is essentially responsible for his own murder because it was his idea to be at the Benghazi facilities that terrible day.

During the discussion on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom on Sunday, October 27, Host Martha MacCallum invited The Tea Party News Network’s Scottie Nell Hughes along with liberal radio show host Leslie Marshall to talk about Obama’s failures in Libya that culminated in the deaths of Ambassador Stevens and three American embassy staffers on September 11, 2012.

With a new 60 Minutes report on Benghazi aired on CBS, the discussion on what Obama and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knew and when they knew it is again making the rounds. The CBS report shows that Obama and Hillary knew that it was a terror attack even as the attacks were occurring. Despite this Obama and Hillary insisted for weeks afterward that the attacks were a reaction to some little seen anti-Muslim Youtube video.

Extremist, Liberal Radio Host Says Republicans are ‘Suicide Bombers Trying to Blow Your Children Up’

Extremist, left-wing radio talk show host Stephanie Miller is all about trying to find a way forward in this government shutdown crisis. She has a wonderful idea on how to reach across the aisle… by calling Republicans “suicide bombers” that want to “blow your children up.”

Yep, that’s the kind of new tone, caring, loving left we are used to, eh?

Miller, whose little heard radio show appears on… well, where ever it is… was talking to a caller who thought that the GOP was holding his kids “hostage” when she made the obscene comments.

Labor Unions Hail Federal Sale of Low Powered Radio Frequencies

-By Warner Todd Huston

Labor unions and ACORN-styled community groups based in America’s big cities are hailing a new decision by the Federal Communications Commission to auction hundreds of low power FM radio frequencies in compliance with the federal Local Community Radio Act passed in 2010.

After a 15-year campaign to force the federal government to open up the dial to low power radio stations, the Prometheus Radio Project was finally able to convince Congress to pass the Local Community Radio Act (LCRA) which changed the law to allow more stations to be licensed by the FCC.

Originally new stations on the FM dial could only be licensed if the frequency requested was more than “three clicks away” on a digital dial from an existing station (for instance, from 96.1 to 96.3 is one click on the dial). The new law would allow for frequencies at three or only two clicks from existing stations with the stipulation that the new station would not cause interfere with existing stations. Hence why they would be 100 watt, low power stations.

The FCC has finally acquiesced to Congress’ law and will put thousands of new frequencies up for auction available only to non-profit groups between October 15 and October 29 of this year.

Tony Katz Tonight: You Can Help Launch a New Conservative TV Show

June 3, 2013 | Filed Under Entertainment, Talk Radio, TV, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

If you are tired of the liberal crap on TV, you can help change that. There is a great friend of mine name Tony Katz who is making a stab at his own TV show. He’s already filmed a few test episodes, but he needs your help–yes, financially–to keep this ball rolling.

As Tony notes, “In 2014, Lorne Michaels will control 11.5 hours of programming every week. (Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers and Saturday Night Live) That’s culture control.”

Well Katz is the answer to that. But he needs your help.

Katz has been a radio host for some time already, so he isn’t just some dude trying to live a fantasy. Tony has appeared on Fox News, MSNBC, and other TV shows as a guest and is now syndicated on terrestrial radio at such stations as 97.1 FM News Talk in St. Louis as well as on the Internet. He has also been a popular speaker for Americans For Prosperity and numerous Tea Party rallies. Katz has some chops, man. He is quick witted, convivial and a fun listen on the radio. He translates all that very well to the TV screen, too.

Rush Limbaugh Does Live in Obama’s Head

May 19, 2013 | Filed Under Barack Obama, Democrats/Leftists, Elections, Ethics, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, President, Progressives, Radio, Rush Limbaugh, Talk Radio, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

On May 14 after news broke that President Obama had once again attacked talk radio host Rush Limbaugh by name, El Rusbo joked that he was “living rent-free in Obama’s head.” It’s hard to fault Limbaugh’s logic on this. After all, the President of the United States of America has used his bully pulpit to bully Rush nearly a dozen times since he became President.

Remembering that Rush Limbaugh is but a voice on the radio and has no vote in any government, hasn’t the ability to wield the power of regulation, and cannot force anyone to do anything under the cover of law, here are some of the times that President Obama went out of his way to kick Limbaugh and did so by name, not just with a general allusion (starting with the most recent):

At a New York fundraiser on May 13, 2013

Meeting with denizens of Hollywood at a fundraiser, President Obama complained that he, the most powerful man in the western world, couldn’t get anything done in Washington because a single radio host stood in his way.

“I genuinely believe there are Republicans out there who would like to work with us, but they’re fearful of their base and they’re concerned about what Rush Limbaugh might say about them. And as a consequence, we get the kind of gridlock that makes people cynical about government,” Obama said.

Glenn Beck Goes ‘Wobbly’

April 3, 2013 | Filed Under Chuck Busch, Conservatives, Entertainment, Ethics, Fox News, Glenn Beck, GOP, Journalism, Media, Media Bias, Republicans, Rush Limbaugh, Talk Radio, TV | Comments Off

-By Chuck Busch

To: Mr. Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch

I just received your recent newsletter in which you related what Glenn Beck said on his Internet Broadcast program concerning inane ideas about “surrender.” I was not aware of his statement as I make it a point to not tune into Glenn on the Internet or on his radio program. Initially, I thought he was doing a service by bringing out controversial information on little discussed subjects that all American’s should be aware of. However after a time, he lost believability, was let go by FOX News and his radio program dissolved into silliness. This is not a time for frivolity and jokes. It is time for a serious effort to educate a misguided populace.

I have been concerned for some time that the host of conservative commentators on radio and TV, with the exception of Rush Limbaugh, have become entirely too harsh and strident contributing to the characterization that conservatives are uncaring and cold-hearted. Anger (and we all have reason to be angry) is too strong of an emotion to sustain over the long term and it is Obama’s strategy to wear us out. Rather than engaging in a personal shouting match with our opponents, we need to meet the challenges to our liberties with a steadfastness, confidence and calmness that will convince people of the soundness of our arguments. The face of conservatism and the Republican Party must attract more listeners and entreat them to consider objectively the major issues of the day. Instead of people reacting to the personality of the talk show host, let them focus on the substance of the debate. (See article on Fox News programming by Michael Reagan titled “New Song, New Singers” March 21, 2013.)

I have already mentioned Rush Limbaugh who founded conservative talk radio and is, without doubt, the master of the trade. He has an uncanny way of being critical of the administration but doing it in a good-natured humorous manner. Ridicule can be a good weapon against these uptight liberals but only if used in a skillful way. Rush, in this post-election cycle, has also made it his objective to connect with the “low information voter” which is a brilliant strategy. The people must be convinced that the supposed benefits of a generous federal welfare state are not only corrupting, but are unsustainable and are not worth the lost of liberties that they entail. They must also learn that this administration does not have their best long-term interests are heart and it’s social and economic policies have produced this ongoing distress in all aspects of American life.

Reno’s KJFK : Another Left Wing Talk Station Goes Dark

March 22, 2013 | Filed Under Democrats/Leftists, Entertainment, Government, Liberals, Progressives, Talk Radio, Warner Todd Huston | 1 Comment

-By Warner Todd Huston

Another in a long line of left-wing radio stations is going dark. KJFK of Reno, Nevada, will cease broadcasting after 8 years as a progressive talk radio station.

In a statement published on its website, KJFK–touted as “AM with IQ”–stayed on the air through the 2012 General Election despite operating “at a loss of thousands of dollars a month.”

Despite a “passionate audience,” KJFK claims that it was “never able to generate the revenue necessary to sustain” itself, and “simply cannot absorb the financial loss any longer.” Apparently “passion” doesn’t pay the bills.

The site notes that its homepage will soon be gone, replaced by links to the shows and hosts that it featured on the air. (Conservative radio host Tony Katz has a screen shot of the page saved at TonyKatz.com.)

Progressive talk radio finds audience building difficult and in closing down, KJFK joins a growing list of small radio stations that featured liberal or progressive programing. Only a few months ago, progressive radio station WVKO in central Ohio turned off its transmitters and Air America, the purported “answer” to Rush Limbaugh, failed in 2010.

Ohio Progressive Radio Station Fails, Blames Obama?

WVKO, a left-wing radio station in Columbus, Ohio, is going under. Even after being the dutiful soldiers for team Obama the station can’t pay its bills. And as the station goes down the tubes they are pointing fingers. At Obama!

Talkers Magazine recently posted the announcement that WVKO, Ohio’s Progressive Radio, will cease operations for 2013. The station will replace the progressive shows with a new Gospel format.

“In a post at the station’s website, Richards spreads the blame around to everyone from the Obama campaign to local advertisers,” Talkers says.

Boy did WVKO’s Richards “spread the blame,” too. On the station’s website, it is a veritable whinefest.

Indianapolis Religious Radio Host on Tim Scott: ‘Black Only in Skin Color’

-By Warner Todd Huston

Tim Scott has been appointed to fill the South Carolina Senate seat being vacated by the retiring Jim DeMint and immediately the racebaiters jumped in with both feet to attack him. One of the early hatemongers was Amos Brown, a host on a religious radio station in Indianapolis, Indiana. Brown resorted to his Twitter account to claim that African American Tim Scott isn’t really a black man.

It has been reported that South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley will appoint Tim Scott, an African American, to fill DeMint’s seat. Scott is, of course, a Republican just like Governor Haley. All one need be is a black man in the GOP and the hatemongers come out in force with their racist name calling and radio host Amos Brown rose early to the rote attack.

On his Twitter account (@Amoswtlcindy), Brown wrote,


Mr. Amos Brown calls himself a man of God and works for AM 1310, “The Light,” a religious station that caters to the African American community in Indianapolis, Indiana.

New York Times: Celebrating the End of ‘Rush Limbaugh’s Country’

-By Warner Todd Huston

For his final Campaign Stops editorial November 18, New York Times columnist Thomas B, Edsall asked the seminal question left arising from the results of the re-election of Barack Obama: Is Rush Limbaugh’s Country Gone?

Beginning his piece with a quote from Limbaugh’s show where the most listened-to talker in the nation expressed his fear that “we’ve lost the country” to Obama and his followers, Edsall noted that Limbaugh’s worries “echoed a Republican theme” that was voiced before Obama’s re-election.

Barack Obama has unleashed a coalition of Americans “who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it — that that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them” — as Mitt Romney put it in his notorious commentary on the 47 percent.

Edsall goes on to agree with Limbaugh that our country has drifted decidedly in favor of big government, nanny-state ideals and away from freedom and liberty — though he doesn’t say it that way, to be sure.

Remember how liberals are the only ones tolerant of others? Well, keep that in mind as you listen to talk show host Michelangelo Signorile tell a gay caller who voted for Mitt Romney that he should take “arsenic” and commit suicide because he dared to vote for a Republican.

Via our friends at Gay Patriot, we get yet another example of the “more tolerant” set, who cannot stand to see someone think differently than they do, “tolerantly” wishing death on anyone that disagrees with them.

Signorile hosts a gay-themed radio show on SiriusXM and during his October 31 show slipped into full blown Obama flack mode as a caller tells him he is both gay and a Romney voter.

Talker Jerry Doyle Replaces Michael Savage on Talk Radio Network

October 2, 2012 | Filed Under Entertainment, Talk Radio, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Talk Radio Network has finally announced who will be replacing the recently departed Michael Savage as the network’s 3PM to 6PM conservative talk radio host. That man is TRN’s Jerry Doyle.

Noting that the network “owns no stations” and that its stable of hosts have to “earn their keep ” by garnering syndicated affiliates, TRN promises radio stations that Doyle will be “eminently saleable.”

Today begins the first in a series of changes to bring talk radio firmly into the 21st century. For too long, we’ve had to choose between ratings and salability, but no longer. Today the 6th largest syndicated talk show in America replaces what was the 3rd largest show, and in so doing, stations will get more light and less heat, a show that they can sell locally with pride, but also a show that will respect its stations, advertisers and audiences with a brilliance that sets great shows apart from good ones.

Doyle will debut on nearly 300 stations, a bit fewer than Savage as some stations have already made their own changes since Savage left the airwaves last month.

Uh Oh! Mike Huckabee Opens First Radio Show With Planted, Shill Caller

On Monday former Arkansas Governor and former GOP candidate for President Mike Huckabee started his new nationally syndicated radio talk show. Unfortunately, his first “caller” hit quite a sour note starting the show off with a less than auspicious beginning.

The caller, a “Mike from San Francisco,” happened to be a staged, shill caller, one that Huckabee unethically foisted on his listeners as just a random caller.

Jeffrey Lord has the scoop over at The American Spectator, but essentially what seems to have happened is that “Mike from San Francisco” is in reality Mike McVay, the senior vice president of programming for the Cumulus Media Network and Huckabee’s boss.

There is accidental “hypocrisy,” where you didn’t actually realize that you have committed the logic/moral sin, and then there is rank hypocrisy, that time when you do two things that are totally opposite each other yet you defend both. The on-line computer backup company, Carbonite, has committed the latter over this business with Slutgate and its ending of advertising with the Rush Limbaugh radio show.

For those unaware, a long-time liberal activist named Sandra Fluke was brought to a faux committee hearing in D.C. by former Speaker of the House Nancy “Sanfran” Pelosi to disgorge the left-wing, big government, liberal ideology about spending federal tax dollars to give free sex supplies to rich Georgetown coeds so that they can sleep around all they want without all those messy consequences.

After her White House planned “testimony” Rush Limbaugh, as is his wont, called this woman a slut. It’s hard to defeat his blustery logic with that. After all, what DO you call a woman that thinks everyone else should pay for both her education and her sex supplies? Anyway, Rush made such a splash with the comment that the inevitable, left-wing faux outrage was ginned up.

As a result, Carbonite announced that it would pull its advertising from the Limbaugh show.

I just got back from a wonderful evening taking school choice at the Restoring American Exceptionalism, Chicago Townhall. In attendance were radio talk show host Michael Medved, Fox News contributor Juan Williams, and Dr. Paul Worfel, Director of Education of Trinity International University. The discussion was moderated by John Tillman of the Illinois Policy Institute.

The event was sponsored by National School Choice Week, an effort by Americans for Prosperity, and is one of many events being held across the country to encourage parents, legislators, and activists to work toward allowing parents a choice in their children’s education. Co-sponsors were Townhall.com, Salem Radio Networks, and Chicago’s WIND Radio, AM 560

Arriving at the sprawling campus of Trinity International University of Deerfield, Illinois, the biting cold outside was quickly forgotten by the warm reception all received by the event staff. The program started promptly with an introduction by local radio host Big John Howell of AM 560, WIND radio who turned the program over to John Tillman of the Illinois Policy Institute.

The night’s debate was nicely balanced from right, center and left with a panel featuring the conservative side of the debate on education represented by talk show host Michael Medved, the center represented by Fox News contributor Juan Williams, and the more traditional educrat’s position taken by Dr. Worfel.

I won’t repeat the whole discussion, but here are some of the more interesting (and some might say provocative) highlights.

Last Friday, The Illinois Policy Institute disinvited Dana Loesch, the editor of Andrew Breitbart’s Big Journalism site, from a breakfast event that was to be held over the weekend on Saturday.

The Illinois Policy Institute was holding the event in conjunction with the Independent Women’s Forum and Smart Girl Politics and was to be a “discussion on women, liberty, and America’s future.”

Loesch was disinvited due to a small controversy over what she said Friday on her Saint Louis-based radio show on KFTK 97.1 FM. Loesch took umbrage over those criticizing U.S. Marines that were filmed urinating on the corpses of Taliban fighters in Afghanistan.

Loesch was incensed at those complaining about the conduct of our soldiers and went into one of her patented rants about how she didn’t care if our solders urinated on the corpses of our enemies. “I’d drop trou and do it too,” she said of the incident.

Loesch went on to say, “Do I have a problem with that as a citizen of the United States? No I don’t.”

During the rest of that Friday many progressive sites (like Politico) went after Loesch for her comments.

Loesch herself has said that the left’s attack on her is all unfair. “There is a difference in advocating for the Marines to break the law, which I didn’t do, and defending them from overly-dramatic hysteria,” she said.

Sadly, this faux controversy gave the Illinois Policy Institute cold feet for the weekend breakfast meeting and they told her she was no longer welcome at the event. Worse, the group never even made a public comment on the disinvitation. They just, in the dead of night, disinvited her.

Kelly Truth Squad is ON the Radio (And Yours Truly is the Cohost??)

January 10, 2012 | Filed Under Conservatives, Entertainment, Illinois, Kelly Truth Squad, Radio, Talk Radio, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

I’d like to announce my first official radio gig. Last week I started as the co-host of the Kelly Truth Squad on Chicago’s local station, WCEV AM 1450.

Our first show aired on Sunday, Jan. 8 (I didn’t write about it before because I wasn’t 100% sure that was the actual start date). You can hear the podcast here: The Kelly Truth Squad Radio.

The show is a two hour extravaganza made up of two segments. The first is an hour of discussion on national and local politics. The second is a showcase program of local charities and events Chicagoans need to know about.

The show is Mr. Kelly’s, certainly, but I am really enjoying being the “color” guy, the second banana. Kelly is such an outsized personality and it is fun to listen to him on the radio.

Now, some of you may be wondering just what the heck I’m doing? Warner with Kelly? Yep. I have to admit, being with Kelly, a political gadfly in Chicago to say the least, is great fun.

So, please check back at the podcast page every week to listen to what the William J. Kelly Truth Squad is up to, won’t you? If you are within the station’s signal, please do listen on the air On Sunday’s at 5AM, at AM 1450 on your dial.


No, Daily Caller, Rush Will Not Back a Candidate in the Primary

The Daily Caller posted an Op Ed calling on Rush Limbaugh to save the GOP by offering a clinching endorsement of one of the non-Romney candidates. The writer was full of reasons and praise for the most listened-to radio talker, but for all the importuning, Rush will never back a primary candidate. The truth is, there just isn’t anything in it for him.

The writer, Yates Walker, says that short of some action by Rush, Romney will be the GOP nominee. Romney’s big money and ubiquitous support among the ignoratti of the GOP elites will be too much for any candidate to overcome unless Rush plays the wild card, he says.

Walker fears that if Rush doesn’t speak, it will all be over.

If Rush doesn’t make a move, recent history will repeat itself. Romney’s multimillion-dollar ad buys and the mainstream media will destroy Rick Santorum before the end of January. Though he is an excellent conservative candidate and could beat Obama in 2012, Rick will be called “unelectable” by so many pundits over the next three weeks that it will become conventional wisdom. The conservative vote will split between Santorum, Gingrich, Perry and Huntsman. Ron Paul will take his customary 12-20%. And Romney’s quarter of the GOP vote will be good enough to win … unless Mr. Limbaugh decides to intervene.

Walker goes on to say that Rush has been “toying” with crushing Mitt for months and that Rush must be “chomping at the bit” to do so.

An Example of Why Radio Host Michael Medved is No Conservative

November 10, 2011 | Filed Under Budget, Conservatives, Entertainment, Ethics, GOP, Government, Republicans, Talk Radio, Taxes, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Michael Medved is touted as a “conservative” radio host from the Salem Radio Network. But just how conservative is he? One has to wonder with his constant dismissive attacks against any and every conservative politician. But this week he revealed another reason why he is less conservative than he pretends.

Medved started his political life working for the Kennedy’s in the 60s, so like many young people he started out as a liberal. But from his radio show yesterday it seems pretty plain that he never really turned the corner from a big government liberal to a true conservative. He obviously still has a ton of far left beliefs in the wondermentatudenousness that is government.

The subject of Obama’s tax on the Christian Christmas icon, the Christmas tree came up on his Tuesday radio program. Obama floated the idea that a 15 cents per tree federal tax should be put on Christmas trees this year to fund another bloated boondoggle government agency.

RIP Chicago Conservative Icon, Tom Roeser

May 31, 2011 | Filed Under Chicago, Conservatives, GOP, Government, Illinois, Media, Republicans, Talk Radio, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Over the weekend Thomas Roeser passed from us. For decades, Roeser was one of Chicago’s most visible and versatile conservatives. Roeser was 82.

Roeser had a long career in politics once serving in the Nixon administration as an assistant commerce secretary. He left that position over a disagreement over his advocacy of the program meant to help minority owned small businesses.

From this point he came back to Chicago as the quintessential Republican reformer that he remained to his last days.

Roeser was a key member of the City Club of Chicago and was a long time talk radio host of WLS AM as well as a columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times. Additionally, Roeser was the publisher of the Chicago Daily Observer.

Tom Roeser was also a stalwart defender of the Catholic faith.

The Chicago Daily Observer has a round up of memorial articles.

Beck Bounced but Barely Bruised – Will the Left Ever Do Right?

April 19, 2011 | Filed Under Democrats/Leftists, Entertainment, Glenn Beck, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, Talk Radio, TV, Warner Todd Huston | 1 Comment

-By Rev Michael Bresciani‏

The left is gloating over Beck’s demise since Fox has decided to let his daily shows dissolve sometime later this year. The cause cited is the lack of sponsors willing to back the show. Some 300 sponsors have dropped the show.

Is Beck a causality of the culture war or just more proof that whether you’re right or lefty the buck rules? It would be all too easy to accept the latter conclusion but with all the facts in, it can be seen as none other than a sweeping victory for the left. In essence the left understood what any good military strategist knows that the first thing to strike is the supply lines and depots in order to slow an army to a crawl or stop it in its tracks.

WGN’s Dean Richards: An Example of Chicago’s Rahm-Devoted Media

February 7, 2011 | Filed Under Chicago, Cook County, Democrats/Leftists, Elections, Gery Chico, Government, Illinois, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, Radio, Talk Radio, Taxes, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

WGN AM 720 radio is one of the biggest radio stations in the country. It is traditionally one of Chicago’s most listened to radio stations and commonly tunes in as Chicago’s number one station. At least for the past few decades, WGN radio has also been the leading liberal station in the city. One thing WGN is not, however, is either edgy or independent of thought where it concerns Chicago’s ruling class. As a rule WGN is soldout all down the line to whomever is “the” Chicago guy.

This weekend Dean Richards, one of WGN’s weekend guys, employed the sort of “analysis” of Chicago’s mayoral election that tends to speak of what the station evidently feels must be the outcome of the election It was a not-so-subtle hint that Rahm Emanuel is the choice to take City Hall.

Richards took a segment of his weekend radio program to discuss the mayor’s race and the specific topic centered around candidate Gery Chico’s first major TV ad against Emanuel.
