right-wing blogs we like

Well-written, and flaming.

« seattle times: webb says he may have been "hacked" by someone who "hates" his show | Main | holiday oddems: mike webb's coming back! casualties of the war on xmas, fill-in duds, dried mucus from rev. moon »

Mike Web will not discuss his fraud case on the radio because it is a criminal trial that has not been adjudicated.


I smell a last minute plea bargain.


Welcome to the delusional world that newspapers live in.

They would rather die a horrible death involving enumclaw horses than credit their sources that they "liberated" their stories from.

Not sure why people/writers see justification in having a local paper steal their story.

Newspaper reporters are the biggest damn hacks on the planet.


Thank goodness I checked this blog early. Once the Mike Webb conspiracy consortuim discovers that it has been uncovered here on blatherWatch they will move with lightning speed to shut it down. Luckily I have taken a screen shot of the blog and will send it out in a massive spam to insure they cannot hide the truth.
Thank you Michael for having the strength to post your findings here for all to see. When the Bush conspiracy spirits you off to secret European prisons where you will be torutured for the truth, our hearts will be with yo.


well, mike's the first one to play the gay card. and the "they hate my TRUTH" card. and the " i know radio better than anyone in this building" card. and finally, the "i have a BLACK lawyer" card. Full house!
Brad Marshall is a classic race baiter and no (white) people in seattle have the nuts to call him on it. he and his client will plea it out and STILL bleat the "hacker" theory.
Webby's the kind of "victim" who repeats his lie until even HE believes it.


How does anyone know the Seattle Times is aware of this blog and that they didn't get tipped off about the story through whatever standard means they use?

blathering michael

Dude, we get 30-some hits a day from the Times and nearly that many from the PI. Interesting new Audience, we'd like to Welcome: the Geico folks from the home office in Washington DC- 74 pageloads today alone!


There's a guy that calls in to Mike's show occasionally who talks about all sort of conspiracies. He was on last week and went on and on about how Google was funded by the military and how the government was tapped into Safeway's computers so they knew when you bought Cheerios. Funny, Mike poo-pooed this guy as being a bit too extreme. Now, this week, Mike seems to have picked up this meme.


Seriously? Damn. I apologize.

Geico j00 4r3 73h suX0r haa!



Well, now that you have taken Webb's side, you should be careful. I would not be surprised if SPD beats you up the next time you stop by Dicks.


I'll admit that, at least for now, this looks like a inexplicable enormous lapse of good judgement on Webb's part. If it turns out that he's guilty, he won't be the first local celebrity to think he's somehow "untouchable." (Remember when a SPD cop gave Bill Gates a traffic ticket?)

I suppose the juvenile "insert gay-related joke here and giggle to yourself" comments sprinkled here have to be expected with an open comment forum.


"He also plays oldies to power and no one likes that."

Bravo for that line, which just cracked me up.


I saved a lot on my car insurance by not having any and then trying to stick it to GEICO!


I heard Frank Shires today on another entercom station, KBSG. Playing disc jockey, spinning the oldies.


That's his normal gig. I can't express enough how much I hate hearing him on KIRO. He was doing the nine ta noon a few days last week and it was like waking up to a bucket of cold water.
