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.

Sounds like KIRO may have rushed to judgement in this as they were being beaten at investigative reporting by KING and KOMO. Appears that more homework needed to be done in this regard. A person's reputation can be so easily ruined and/or tainted by this apparent hastily put-together piece? It's one thing to draw attention to a public system in a critical way but yet another to focus on principally an individual.
Shame on them if this is so.

T-S

Good thing he had the support of a union in the face of all that money and corporate status and money. You never know when you'll need to stand up to the bullies yourself.

After watching their coverage during the last election, I realized that KIRO has lost its way. I was a 25-year KIRO watcher, but no more. KING suffers from the [policies of Republican supporting BELO, so right now I'm dividing my time between KOMO and KCPQ. If either is shading their news, I haven't caught them yet.

KS

Sounds like Halsne showed his lack of ethics and did the convenient drive by reporting.

This is symptomatic of the deterioration of news reporting, who many of us have a hard time trusting any more. This kind of stuff happens on KIRO, as well as KING and KOMO around here and many other local TV outlets over this grate nation.

Cueburner

Most of TV news has lost its way and along the way its credibility. Flash and trash, smoke and mirrors, all in the name of "breaking news."

If KING is claimed to be owned by Republican supporting BELO, then why do the left dominate that station ? Even Robert Mak, occasionally objective leans to the left. That sounds like an urban myth from Davy Goldstein.

This is a true Public Servant. Chester quietly and admirably goes about his tasks assisting in the education of our kids. The way he has handled this with dignity and grace is admirable.

Today it is easy to kick a public employee, especially a custodian, especially a black man.
Shame on you Halsne. Shame on you KIRO. I'll never watch that news again.

Yes, it is a good thing he had a Union to aid him in this hour of need.

Dennis

I'm very surprised that anyone watches KIRO TV news. All reporters shaking a handful of papers at the camera, drama queens and ambulance chasing reports. Move on folks, there's no news on KIRO that's worth watching.

    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....
