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.

The BW crew

Apologies to Mr. Sound. Please repost your comment. BW is experiencing some technical difficulties.

After listening to Boze on KIRO this week, he’s filling in for Ross, I’ve since switched my radio to KTTH at noon. Listened to Medved then Boze. Though it’s probably out of liberal curiosity, my head might explode, and my books are calling. I still enjoyed the shows. Rush, naw… he’s fat blow hard with a problem with women and gas.

Is Moveon.org a tax exempt organization ? I believe it is, like Media Matters. Old man Soros funds both of them. Does that really seem right ?

Politically based organizations like these two really are should be required to pay taxes, IMO. It could be discerned that they are trying to suppress the First Amendment. On the other hand, no one has to listen to Limbaugh - just turn to a different station or turn off your radio.

Seems to me they have the right to protest too, also.

Chucks

It is past time that MoveOn.org moves on. I can't see where they could have any credibility with anybody but the most ignorant of left wing liberals.
The lack of integrity of those twits is beyond belief. Is the best way to counter an opinion that you do not agree with really to attempt to silence those that do oppose your "thinking"?
I guess if you can't keep up or even compete with the big boys, you take your ball and go home, then ask daddy to bulldoze the competitions field so they can't play either.
Can't let people hear opposing ideas. They might think about the issues and come to, what MoveOn considers to be the wrong conclusions.

Yup, they have the right to protest but what they seem to be protesting about here goes against the 1st amendment and they often make up stuff to bolster their case. Being honest and objective about what is protested is seldom done these days.

In some cases, certain people should be taken off the air for what they have said, and they usually are by their management.

against the 1st amendment

Free speech and free assembly for common interests is against the 1st amendment?

and they often make up stuff to bolster their case

Sure you're not projecting, KS?

Pete

Hey KS - not to be too nitpicky, but what MoveOn is doing has nothing to do with the first amendment. That amendment is specifically about prohibiting government interference with free speech.

A private organization pressuring a commercial enterprise to not give a media platform to someone because they don't like what s/he says is many things (including, usually, stupid and futile), but it has nothing to do with government censorship.

KS

Hey its all about Moveon.org, as radiohead put it. Correct, Pete - but guess I trust their motives less than a number of people do.

and they often make up stuff to bolster their case

Sure you're not projecting, KS?

Posted by: Truth-seeker | March 31, 2012 at 03:46 PM

No, just calling like I have seen them operate in the past. What are you trying to make up, TS ?

Truth-seeker

And if you distrust their motives, their should be laws . . .

KS

That may be your opinion TS, but that's not my view. Obviously there should not be laws for others who are distrusted, not unless their ACTS break laws.

    • 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....
