  • Talker's Magazine
    The quirky talk radio trade mag. Check the Talk Radio Research Project- it's not very scientific, but places on the top 15 talkers list (scroll down to Talk Radio Audiences By Size)) are as hotly contested as Emmys (and mean just about as much).

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
    inexhaustible Drudgery of NW conservative news
  • The Radio Equalizer
    prolific former Seattle KVI, KIRO talk host speaks authoritatively about radio.

There are two mysteri8es here,

1, How did MM get to be seen as some sort of spokesperson for the Jews? He holds no leadership positions, as far as I know he has a Jewish following small enough to enjoy the last supper with him, and he almost never presents anything from a Jewish intellectual perspective even though, from what I have heard, he actually is a knowledgeable Jew?


Is there a bit of Unle Tom racism here in the way he expoloits the media?

The other issue is why is it that major Jewish efforts in Seattle are never covered .. even by you? The African American Jewish coalition, the liberal religious activities of Rabbi Singer, etc. never seem to get any attention.

I suppose this is all the man bites dog thing. same old same old.

joanie

C'mon, Jew. Good news is no news. Besides, Michael's got a media blog here and Medved's media. That's all.

blathering michael

yeah Stephen: we depend on getting our Jew news from SeattleJew.com, but we're usually disappointed.

Michael Medved is I'm sure an embarrassment to the local Jewish community, who seem to be quite low key. Hamhanded ethnic hubris, selfimportance and boasting is annoying no matter what group the crowing ass is representing. The low point of Medved's continuing, asinine "Jewishissimo" was the time on a fairly recent St. Patrick's Day, when he went on his show and patronized the American Irish,in a condescending manner,then kvelled over how much better his Jewish people have done for themselves in America than their Irish counterparts. An odious, repelling little man.

Medved is a crispy little neocon who still harkens unto Bush and company and the most spectacular foreign policy fuck-up in U.S. history. Bush invited him to the white house and Medved will never admit to Bush's incompetence, and failures. What a waste of a liberal education- Medved could have gone to Bob Jones for what he got out of Yale.

Coiler

He could have gone, but Bob Jones wouldn't have admitted him. At least back then

MM is an Uncle Tom with a yamulke.

Dear Micheal:
FYI the name Sotomayor has a poorly known place in Jewish and Church history. Sotomayor (1640) was an Inquisitor who copiled an "Index". An Index is a list of forbidden books, memoirs, rabbinical commentaries, manuscripts and translations not approved by the Catholic Church. It included The Talmud any writings that offended the Church. Draconian punishments were inflicted upon people caught with these items.

(From "The Censorship Of Hebrew Books" By William Popper, Ktav Publishing House Inc. NY, 1969 p. VII)

Could Sonia Sotomayor be a descendant of this infamous Inquisitor? Could you find out? Would this be a skeletin in the closet worth exposing? Whether or not, the educational value of publically tagging this shameful piece of history appears to be worthwhile.

In another vein, many years ago I went to a family wedding in Caslifornia. It was Saturday morning and and found myself standing infront of a little Shul (by accident). It was my normal practice to attend Sabbath Morning services, so I went inside. To my surpise this shul had its "bimah" in the center of the sanctuary, similar to my Shul in Portland OR, it nade me feel at home.

I stood near the entrance looking a bit lost, and you must have noticed that I didn't know where anything was. You came over to me and graciously welcomed me and found me a tallis, siddur, and place to sit. The event is sealed in my treasure of memories, thank you.

I hope this pice of historical trivia enriches and enlightens.
sincerely,

Yaac Feuer

Arnold

Yes, but all I want to know is where the f*** is Caslifornia, and who is it's current Governor.
I'll be back.

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.
