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
  • The Radio Equalizer
    prolific former Seattle KVI, KIRO talk host speaks authoritatively about radio.

Bill Wippel

Any so-called Christian pracher who says he is able to forecast when the world will end does not know the Bible very well. It cxlearly states no one will know except God the Father.

Buttercup

Why were you so disappointed that the world did not end, Michael? Sounds kind of nihilistic from here.

pancake makeout

So thou sayest, Mr. Wippel. So hard to know a so-called Christian preacher from the rest of them.

I nominate the one with Keith Olberman.
Looks like he has followed his traditional routine and managed to wear out his welcome. From HuffPost:

"Keith Olbermann has been noticeably absent from some of Current TV's election 2012 coverage. Olbermann's absence was the topic of a New York Times article on Thursday, where reporter Brian Stelter wrote of possible tension that may be growing between the outspoken broadcaster and Current TV. According to the network's tv schedule, the "Countdown" host is not slated to be part of the network's coverage of the Iowa caucuses or New Hampshire primary.

Olbermann abruptly left MSNBC one year ago in January, after reports that he had clashed with management. After staying off the air for six months, Olbermann debuted a new version of his MSNBC show, "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" on Current TV, where he also carries the title chief news officer.


Olbermann, who anchored part of MSNBC's election 2008 coverage with former colleague Chris Matthews, told The Huffington Post in June that he would play a similar role for Current TV on must-watch political nights, like presidential debates and primary elections. Olbermann was not part of Current TV's post-debate analysis in December.

KS

Maybe Olbermann's head exploded and he had to have it surgically reset.

BlackRhino

The ignorant have no fear of death, why do you think the republicans’ decline to educate the public.

KS

LMAO. Look in the mirror BR. Your statement demonstrates no basis of fact. Its just a stupid opinion and another liberal progressive talking point.

I agree, Sparkles, Bla'm must be in a generous Christmas mood judging by the past few days. But remember the embargo lifted can be re-enstated in a NY minute if one does not follow the rules.

    pacific nw talk stations

    • KIRO 710ESPN Seattle 710 KHz
      Games and sports-blabber
    • 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.
    • KUOW FM 94.9
      Seattle's foremost public radio news and talk.
    • 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.
    • Washington State Radio Stations
      Comprehensive list of every danged AM & FM station on the dial.
    • KKOL am 1300 KHz
      Once a rabid right-wing talker, except for Lou Dobbs, it's all business....
