right-wing blogs we like
The Reagan Wing Hearin lies the real heart of Washington State Republicans. Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.
Orbusmax inexhaustible Drudgery of NW conservative news
We've been traveling, so here's a best-of from last summer. As all of our work, it's still prescient and insightful, and extremely well-written.
Our patented Lens of Blather is an instrument which allows us to see into the fearful future as predicted by talk radio radio hosts.
It's always a fearsome, gruesome, loathsome place at the bottom of a
dozen slippery slopes; moral declines into festering bogs of unintended
catastrophes- all forsoothed and told-you-so'd by some of the greatest
minds and towering moral exemplars of our time: Rush Limbaugh, Bill
O'Reilly, Glenn Beck, Laura Ingraham, Neal Boortz, and Sean Hannity.
The National Association of Broadcasters is honoring Michael J. Fox with their Distinguished Service Award for his work in television for “raising awareness for Parkinson’s Disease through the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.”
Seems like only yesterday (actually, it was 2006) that Rush Limbaugh, that great American, broadcasting pioneer, and conservative role model, mocked Michael J. Fox on-air accusing him of either playacting or deliberately going off his meds to enhance his symptoms to make a political point.
Shannon Burke, 45, a once popular, conservative, mid-day radio host on Orlando’s RealRadio 104.1 was jailed last Spring after he ragefully, drunkenly, shot his wife's dog in their bedroom. The bullet wounded the dog and hit his wife, grazing her head.
Friday he pleaded guilty and was given a 6-month sentence.
It’s one of those tropes you always hear on right-wing talk radio: bust the employers of undocumented workers, and the problem will be solved.
But in a Seattle Times story today, an Obama administration strategy that does just that has backfired on far-right talkhost, KVI Peter Weissbach, 62, (m-f, 5-6p) who’s gotten very rich running Seattle Building Maintenance, a janitorial service that employs the very illegals he rants against the government not busting!. (At, of course, the miserly wages that corporations can get away with paying such workers).
KIROFM 97.3 Multi-format: news and nearly all local talk. This is where classic KIRO AM news talk radio went... hopefully, not to die. The home of Dave Ross & Luke Burbank, Dori Monson, Ron & Don, Frank Shiers, Bill Radke, Linda Thomas, Tony Miner and George Noory.
KVI am 570 KHz Visit the burnt-out husk of one of the seminal right-wing talkers in all the land. Here's where once trilled the reactionary tones of Rush Limbaugh, John Carlson, Kirby Wilbur, Mike Siegel, Peter Weissbach, Floyd Brown, Dinky Donkey, and Bryan Suits.
Now it's Top 40 hits from the '60's & '70's aimed at that diminishing crowd who still remembers them and can still hear.
KTTH am 770 KHz Right wing home of local, and a whole bunch of syndicated righties such as Glennn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Medved, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Lars Larsony, and for an hour a day: live & local David Boze.
KPTK am 1090 KHz Syndicated liberal talk. Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Ed Schultz, Randi Rhodes, Norman Goldman fill in the large hole to the left on Northwest radio dial.
KLFE AM 1590 kHz Syndicated right-wing 2nd stringers like Mark Levin, Bill Bennett, Mike Gallagher, Dennis Prager, Dennis Miller and Hugh Hewitt inhabit this timid-voiced neighbor honker for your radio enjoyment (unless you're behind something large like Costco).
KOMOAM News, traffic, Ken Schram and John Carlson.
