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

Just a heads up, my source at a certain office in Maryland says talk radio is up in Seattle. Many many non metro diaries mailed and returned. Fewer Seattle diaries means great news for one or two stations. Also, get some Syrah and Brie w/champignons standing by as comfort food: yur gonna hate seeing who had a great book.
You're right though: local, local, local.

blathering michael

Thanks Scrilla, I'm big enough to eat crow, especially if there's a decent Syrah...


To be "pithy", Bill O'Reilly style, KTPK will NEVER achieve ratings without any local angle and seriously, I doubt even that will cause them to draw larger numbers. Whiny, bitchy, always complaining hosts get very tiresome. AirAmerica has mastered the "bitchslap". Ask Big Eddie Schultz about the importance of POSITIVE coaching styles to get results. Lenny Wilkens was a prime example of positive coaching producting a championship Seattle SuperSonics team. Time will certainly tell.


I agree Duane, I want to hear facts, not whining.


The Spring ratings are out and KIRO-AM is still the highest rated news/talk radio station in Seattle. Limbaugh is still the undisputed heavyweight champ of all talk radio.


Ed is a lazy host who is constantly uninformed about issues his callers bring up. His answer is to say " Heyyyyy thanks for coming where America comes to talk!" and hangs up and takes the next caller. That he beats Rush-boy in some markets is nothing for the left to be proud of...
One caller from Spokane called to talk about Mayor Jim and since Ed had not heard about it, he accused the caller of making it up and hung up on him....
On a much brighter note. KPTK is going to run trial shows of other independent hosts such as Stephanie Miller and Thom Hartmann. I will be casting my vote for Thom and writing to the station to encourage them to take him. A rerun of Thom is better than a rerun of Jerry anyday!


Oh my God! You people are hysterical. I've never seen such a case of rampant paranoia! You assert so much of this hatred, these lies, and then you go on to say that it comes from conservatives. Are your heads stuck so far up your own bums that the smells of feces clouds common sense and decency? Wow "Let me go into Rush Limbaugh's transcripts and see if I can't pull out a word or two so that I can call him a racist again..." Have you nothing better to do? Why don't you go out and do something about the state of things instead sitting back, ringing your hands, and hiding your envy of the LEADERS or the real media by attempting to slander them (with the SAME BS) day-in, day-out. Bloody hell! If you people are Americans, I fear the future. Aw, go find something else to bitch and moan about...


This is 2 years old, Rush is a proven drug addict and a professional 'poofter' as well, please move on to current conservo-nazis who will be facing jail soon...


Jim--those feces clouds you smell are coming from Rush...Lynn Cheney tossed him out of her Limo because he thought it was cute to poot...


I can't believe this website exsist but than again liberals tend to be misfits, are you not aware air america filed for bankruptcy last year? I'm not surprised as their ideas and liberal hate they push were bankrupt from the start. Why worry about whats on the radio you don't like anyway? Are you a masocist? tanker


Huh? I don't know, must be someone from the Bush administration acting on new found intellegence!

    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....
