right-wing blogs we like

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.

« Rock on, rush! | Main | Part 2: how weissbach did it »

January 31, 2010



Wow, Michael. That is one piece of powerful writing! I would say "go back to Canada" but they wont want him either.


Excellent expose' Bla'M, good stuff and definitely data that the public needs to know, so that this person never has access to the public air-waves ever again.

prick the pretension

weisbachs gonna gitchoo hood.

Jaynie Dillon Jones

Finally, an explanation for his arrogance...


Hood should hear from Weissbach. He wasn't even charged for anything. This is just libelous, personal and hateful.


Nice take down. Though I've never listened to a single minute of this guy's show. Sadly, I can't relate.

Geov Parrish

The best defense against a libel claim, as Bla'M well knows, is that the material in dispute is true.


If I were a dishonest person, it would behoove me to promote honesty in others.

Not happy in Seattle

Wow I wouldnt want this guy in my buildings we have personal patient information all over the place that the janitors have acces to!


I'VE never liked this jumped up , arrogant little turd- now this article reveals he's even much worse than he seems on air. get the hell out of my country Weissbach, you sick, meanspirited bastard.


You are Jew bashing Tommy.


Jew bashing? the guy s an arrogant creep. i never liked him. somewhere a few years into his onair career in Seattle, it dawned on me that he was a Jew, most likely, but i have disliked him from day one. if he's a Jew so be it. Do all Jews get a free pass from you, Julia? No one gets a free pass with me.


Your comments are baseless and riddled with anti-semitism. He's an American Jew. Screaming for him to leave the country or be sent to the camps is unacceptable. We don't need that here. You should take your anger somewhere else.


His being Jewish doesn't excuse his actions.


he's not a natural born Americam - hE's Canadian and apparently immigration granted him citizenship- a very bad choice . If he had been convicted on these charges being considered against him, befoer his citizenship was granted he could have been deported. too bad tey didnty find out about him earlier and had a case they could proceeed with. by the was i made a thousand dollars today,for my days work, weissbach, all in legal above board investments and speculation, risking my own money. you don't have to cheat to make money in this country.

Weissbach is not a Jew... he's just of German stock.


This is elementary writing. They teach high school students to site their sources. This is written "a manger said--" who?

According to a co-worker and ex-dear friend, Michael Hood is not only a compulsive liar but lacks any sort of decency. His manager has told us that he is under review for maliciously attacking the reputation of reputable individuals based on false claims and allegations. "Michael is consumed with himself and his ratings - willing to bash anyone for anything."

Feel free to make an attempt at negating this assertion, you are only smearing your own face in the dirt. This is not a credible piece.
