After all these years: Nobody does what we do!
We've been out in front of everybody in local radio & teevee dish: The upheavals, hirings, firings -- all served up with the snark and verve you demand.
We're the go-to place for local media news too boring for local media.
We've scooped the big boys on KVI's demise, KIRO's troubles, the comings and goings of Kirby Wilbur, Bryan Suits, Jane Shannon, and Frank Shiers; not to mention Dori Monson's lip augmentation, and Libby Shenkman's shameless work attire. Also Luke Burbank's return to earth.
We can proudly report that rightwingers have called us a "serial curser," and a "serial liar," while a prominent pro-death, social justice whore called us "Ellen Craswell's sex-toy." Our so-called humor has been denounced by none other than the Secretary of State.
We've given you real-time interviews with Rachel Maddow, Ed Schultz, Sam Seder, Ron Reagan; former U.S. Attorney John McKay; Alison Stewart; Allan Prell; Fred Ebert; expert Edgar "Choch" Manana, lovelorn columnist Amy Dickenson; comedian Mo Rocca, Wunda Wunda, Sheriff Tex, Luke Burbank, Allen Prell, Rep. Jim McDermott, Rev. Ken Hutcherson, and Rabbi Daniel Lapin. (Sometimes without their knowledge).
We covered the tragic Mike Webb/Scott White story like no one else.
Live & local radio has shrunk: and since blather (like our ex-wife) abhors a vacuum, we've expanded to cable teevee and comedic media right-wingers to fill-in some of the gaps left by local radio's shrinkage.
Even if you hate us, you read us because nobody does what we do!
Count on BlatherWatch for hi-larious and delicious bitchiness about the right-wingers you love to hate such as Dori Monson, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Michael Medved, Laura Ingraham, Pooter Dunghill, Bill Cunningham, Michael Savage, Dr. Laura, Billo Reilly, Kirby Wilbur, Dave Boze, and John Carlson.
But we've been critical of liberals, too. Dave Ross, Bernie Ward, Ken Schram, David Goldstein, and Jim McDermott have felt the lash of the blather-tongue.

We poke at Seattle holy bovine KUOW, and NPR. (Nobody in Seattle takes us to lunch anymore).
In fluffy little bits that no one reads or comments on, we keep you apprised of national radio trends, radio biz, and broadcast innovations.
As we said: nobody does what we do!
But it comes with a price. We work for a living, and the daily blathering is getting hard to justify to the people who count our beans. Please, please please: Just $100, $50, or $150 (radio producers can give less) to tide us over until we ask again.
