right-wing blogs we like

  • The Reagan Wing

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.

« Is robert mak leaving TV? | Main | McClellan: If we'd only the liberal media had been a liberal media! »

Good for him, he seemed too collected and capable for a news show that shared time slots with infomercials. If I had to observe politics for a living I'd eventualy want to get involved like Gene Goddin did (although I wish she hadn't).

I can't grasp that bit about the news director "not getting" Up Front. If the show received OK ratings what more is there to get? If the show had poor ratings why would anyone need to get it?

What's the deal with the gate arms? Do poeple realy drive right through those - and that frequently?


At least we've still got John Curly. He's fair and balanced, just a little lite, that's all.


Oh My! Why couldn't Jean Enerson take the City job as director of directors. I love Jean but her time has passed and I would like Sabrina Register to take over the anchor at KING 5. Too bad, I like Robert Mak...could going to the City of Seattle possibly be a step up?....methinks he might have fallen a step...can you imagine working for hizzoner...Robert if you don't already prepare for riding the bus. Good Luck to ya!


Sabrina Register is happily married and has kids Duffman.


Sabrina Register is happily married and has kids Duffman.


I'm well aware of that AA...but that doesn't affect her talent and I thing she is being wasted on NW News Ch. I don't want to date her...I want her as anchor at KING5...dig?


You just have a thing for milk, duffs, you know, women with big juggs who can breast feed you the news as you want it. You make no sense on Enersen.


Why am I not surprised that Duffboy prefers the pretty face over years of experience?


Obviously you're not familar with Sabrina Register...'big juggs' not quite...re-coil but do continue your analysis...haha


I haven't 'checked' her out like you have Duffmilk, so I'll leave the comparison in your hands.


do that re-coil; cause I'm far more capable of judging talent than you....OBVIOUSLY.


Coiler, please treat Duffman with more respect. The US soymilk industry owes him for his giant sacrifice. On Memorial Day, I took a moment of silence to honor his service: Because of my lactose intollerance, it was the least I could do for our half-black, left-leaning independant.

Remember: If we don't fight the milk industry there, they'll follow us home!


god, this is a vile site.


...just Nate acting out again..haha; normally we're more subdued...


Robert Mak was a class act. He will be missed and hard to replace with Up Front. Maybe he can talk some common sense into Nickels - I realize that is a pipe dream though. A big loss for KING-5, KONG IMHO.

Duff - You can watch Sabrina Register on NW Cable News.

Mak was good. Just a sign of the "please don't inform - I need to be entertained" times.

Duh-ff is obviously finding his entertainment on NW Cable News. Happy viewing, duh'ff.

BTW, have you ever thought of listening to Enerson instead of watching her? If I were her, I'd prefer that you stopped watching me. You're obviously looking for something other than news...

boobie trap

Yet another Seattle 'journalist' goes to work for a Democrat.

Rumor has it that King 5 is in negotiations to start a whole new show: "Up Rear, with John Carlson."


It has been all downhill for K5 since Boobs McGee went to K7 to do weather.

I would like to thank Robert Mak for all those hard hitting questions he never asked over the years. You are just going to be perfect at Mayor Quimby's office. I see a city paid Sting concert in your future!

Who's Robert Mak?

    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....
