Well-written, and flaming.

June 26, 2007



Medved is many things, but I woulds never use thew word "honorable" for someone so willing to be an intellectual bully with a cut off button.

If anything this guy is less truthful then Limbaugh. I have heard medved mistate facts, cut off callers or misreperent callers, etc.

Finally as a fellow Jew, I find the willingness of this Capo to conspire with the Pst Robertsons' of this worl disgisting.

He is good at movie critiques.


Bring Back, Lou Pate on the over night. News talk radio 710 am KIR0
Ted Nugent May GOD Bless Him
My Vote is for Fred Thompson
What is KIRO going to do about there bad ratings from 9:00 pm to 1:00 am Moday /Friday .
And as always Styblehead radio it's more than just bad it's Plan WRONG !


His comments are about as insightful as The Weiner saying that roving bands of lesbians are going around the country buying off state legislatures in an attempt to pass pro-gay rights laws.

Like your banner says, Bla'M..Im glad you are listening so I dont have to.

My man Dori

Glenn Beck brings a fresh Gen X approach to the talk radio world.

I'm tired of all the baby boomers...Rush, Hannity, Medved, Savage...

Let's give the guy a chance before we crucify him.

My vote is for Guiliani. He saved NY.


Great poswt, Bla'M! The immigration issue is huge and fraught with racism...Pat Buchanan, et. al. are engendering a minor conspiracy that the proposed "amnesty" will create a new New Mexico! But, this is outrageous...!

blathering michael

My Man Dori: better put Your Man on your list of baby boomer talk hosts: Dori's birthday is Oct. 2 1961. I say get rid of all the old bastards.

David Tatelman

Ha ha, Michael. I was going to suggest to My Man Dori that he shut off his radio if he is tired of listening to Big Pants and his ilk and get a life.


Thing #1:
"...Tim LeHay, creator of the bestselling, apocalyptic Gone Fishin' Left Behind series."

If you haven't yet, go right out and rent Left Behind the Movie (starring Kirk "Too moral for Growing Pains" Cameron). The greatest unintentional comedy film of the decade. The Refer Madness of our generation.
Read my review Here

Thing #2:
Re: Bla'Ms Hidden Hand jpeg above:

That rendering is actually the album cover for a killer doom-metal band out of Maryland (of the same name). "The Hidden Hand" features guitar legend Scott "Wino" Weinrich from former Doom greats The Obsessed and Saint Vitus.

*Metal dictionary mode - off*

My man Dori

Dori brings the issue to the table. Today we engage in a fair and honest debate abouth the alleged abuses at the City of Seattle PD. There is nobody effectivelky doing do so in the market.


I am sure many Canadians would rejoice at Quebec becoming the 51st state.
Be our guest.


Medved - smartest man in talk radio. He does his homework and it shows.

Beck - smooth talking and glib as a Mercedes Benz salesman. He can sell anything including right wing propaganda.

Limbaugh - holds 15 million listeners spellbound daily without guests and few callers. Awesome talent.

Savage - gifted inflammatory orator who mastered the art of making provocative statements with conviction. Perversely compelling.

My man Dori


May I add,

Dori - the question authority, buck the trend, against the grain, brutally honest, compassionate, family oriented, team player talk radio master

Dave the Rave

Michael Hood, pardon my ignorance, but what does "hebephrenic" mean? Regards, David



Its a band...also a type of schizophrenia...take your pick...


yes. Dori is among the best in town, but may add--Frank Shiers" Hes the most professional new talent on the horizon. He will go far. Bryan Styble has not had a real chance, he is a fine broadcaster in the fine tradition of Mike Webb and Fred Ebert. John Carlson was really great before he got hooked into that gabfest with Schram.


Anyone hear Dori ask the scientist who figured out how to burn salt water for energy if he were going to get to work getting rich and the inventor answer that he wasn't interested in riches but thought it would help humanity?

It was kind of nice to hear someone make Dori look like the money-grubbing fool he is.

BTW, Here's the story - salt water as fuel.

My man Dori

This is how I rate the KIRO talk show hosts based on knowledge, insight, listener interaction and overall entertainment:

1. Dori Monson
2. Phil the News Junkie
3. Bryan Styble
4. Dave Ross
5. Ron Reagan
6. NY Vinnie
7. Frank Shiers
8. Ron and Don
9. Carl Jeffers
10. Goldstein
11. Turi Ryder
12. Bob Brinker
13. Tom Douglas
14. Cisco


mrogi....you just outed yourself..


No, Phil Vandervort just outed himself with that list.


Frank just called Elisabeth Edwards a crybaby for confronting Skank Coulter about her attacks on her husband on Hardball on MSNBC, and asking her to stop them. This from the same Mr. Shiers who has repeatedly whined about how upset he IS and how he wishes he could take myself , Mercifurious and other Blatherwatch bloggeres to court because we wrote mean, mean things about HIM.

Vox Publius

On the June 28 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, Glenn Beck commented on a mock ad -- produced by subscribers to his website known as "Insiders" -- depicting a "giant refinery" that produces "Mexinol," which, according to the ad, is a fuel made from the bodies of illegal immigrants from Mexico.

Beck read from the ad: "At Evil Conservative Industries, we know four things for certain. The country needs cheap, alternative fuel source. Two, the human body is 18 percent carbon. Three, carbons can be turned into hydrocarbons. Four, we have a buttload of illegal aliens in our country."

Go read the rest and be heartily sickened. www.mediamatters.org
I know he will say it's a joke and we should lighen up, but this is advocating genocide isn't it?
When did that become funny?


Glenn Beck is totally unneccesary. It's a godamned tragedy that all you need is some huffing and puffing, racism, and social program hating rants to become successful in American radio. Whatever happened to the concept of broadcasters?

Kaka began his career with São Paulo at the age of eight. He signed a contract at fifteen and led the São Paulo youth squad to Copa de Juvenil glory. He made his senior side debut in January 2001 and scored 12 goals in 27 appearances, in addition to leading São Paulo to its first and only Torneio Rio-São Paulo championship, in which he scored two goals in two minutes as a substitute against Botafogo in the final, which São Paulo won 2–1.


...but he's no Lionel Messi :)
