Well-written, and flaming.

Michael. what do you have against Virgos? you always mention that when your talking about Webb. We Virgos are known for our integrity and perserverance- many of us are Republicans. We always marry the girl. Please lay off. BTW, What's your sign?




come to me you sexxy, sexxy scorp- I'll take you away from all these nasty republican virgos and there perverted ideas about intimacy and free markets


oh my goodness....
What a nice compliment..however, I am spoken for by the Blister ;-)


Any of you who are hoping that facts will come out that will exonerate MikeWebb are in denial. The man is a fraud, period. No one hacked into the fool's bank records. I believe he has narcissistic personality disorder and is probbly one of the 2 most arrogant people I've ever come across. I was wondering how we'd ever get this toxic fellow off the air, since it was obvious that the fix was in with Glendenning. I knew he was being kept on the air because he was buddies with management or he was holding nasty pics on him. It turned out his own narcissism/arrogance did him in. Great.


oh and one more thing- Mike Webb, you're an assclown.


I think Mike is innocent.

What happened? No, not hacking. But a clerical goof-up is real easy to believe. I've heard too many insurance claim horror stories not to start my guessing there.

The above post? It felt like cold hate rolling off the page.

Good luck, Mike.


If Webb is convicted of a felony, doesn't that mean he can no longer own firearms? Oh JOY JOY JOY JOY


He's gone. For good. Talking about the smoldering wreck that is Mike Webb is like admiring the finish on the coffin.


I always figured those extra long montages at the beginning of each hour were to give him the opportunity to take an extra long break. I figured he was just hanging around the KIRO lunchroom or something, though... I never would have guessed he was leaving the building!

Gah. When I was on the air I would have been terrified of leaving the building and not getting back in time. Hell, I had plenty of nightmares about locking myself out of the studio after a bathroom run... it takes some serious cojones to drive away like that during a show.

I had on Lou Pate this morning , and yesterday morning . I really like the late night guests and the show really holds its own . Ron and Don , and then Lou Pate super line up and dont for get Gary behind the glass ! LOVE YA!!!


"I never would have guessed he was leaving the building!

Gah. When I was on the air I would have been terrified of leaving the building and not getting back in time."

Andrew, if you were also logged in as the operator on duty, getting fired for leaving the building would have been the least of your troubles. The FCC might also want to talk to you about the relatively minor issue of leaving the transmitter, unattended & cooking.

That Webb got away with leaving the building, even once, is a real mystery... especially for a market the size of Seattle.


isn't that what interns are for?

You really have to have a screw loose to think that leaving in the middle of your show is SOP, and a-ok.

Hell, buy some cheetos on the way into work and do your damn show.

The more the story unfolds, the crazier webb seems.

Mike Barer

I bet he reads every comment here and keeps an enemies list.

I think his "Internet Streaming" show is excellent. Too bad other innovative hosts brave those waters. No commercials and no Dori Monson hawking everything from Stupid Prices to a goddamn invisible fence.


yeah but how is Mike going to make his Lexus payments and pay those fines and lawyer fees? Innovative my ass, he is just doing the same old shit but for no money.


Wow I guess Mike Webb doesn't think to highly of Dori Monson.


The only one who thinks highly of Dori is Dori.


Dana says:The only one who thinks highly of Dori is Dori.Not true.I,m sure his dog Star loves him to


Dori was at his sanctimonius, priggish best today as he defended those fascists at WalMart against the proposed state law mandating they pay for their own workers healthcare, instead of making government social services and welfare take care of them. . According to him these greedy scumbags are simply champs= brilliant, all-American entrepreneurs hwo are being unfairly punished by the government for being too successful. What an ass.


Does anyone think that Lou Pate is gay?


When (not if) he is convicted he will forfeit his right to possess the following:
(1) a firearm
(2) a ballot
But he will still be able to do voiceovers for commercials, such as for big insurance companies.


Pate, or Herr Pate as I call him, for his Nazilike manner with anyone who disagrees with him, is constantly bragging about what a handsome adonis/ stud he is and how the young babes were going to be handing up their numbers to him at the Battle of the Talkshow Hosts, so if he is gay he's a major fake, but I have no evidence that he's gay. I don't think he's gay. There's so many absolutely true things to loathe and despise Lou for already, I don't need to make up anything about him. By the way, another"vacation" day for Lou last night. What's the tally now since December?


"Andrew, if you were also logged in as the operator on duty, getting fired for leaving the building would have been the least of your troubles."

You misread; it wasn't Andrew you were responding to -- it was me. And, yes, you're right, though I wouldn't think at KIRO that the hosts are also the responsible operators.
