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.

I've always like Rich Johnson as a news reporter.



chuck says joanie is a liar. (because she lies)

He can't help but be sucessful at Fox. He will probably retire from there, going out "on top".
Good for him.


So, is fox news now suddenly reliable? Or is there a different news side from the fixed one?

Rich Johnson

I'm trying to remember where that pic was taken (Iowa caucuses?) - and am again reminded that I really need to think about some sit-ups.
Joanie: Listen to the Fox News Radio Hourly newscast (KTTH, or foxnewsradio.com) and tell me where you find any spin. The great joy of doing what I do is that there's literally no time to do anything but the straight-up facts. Then the talkers get to have all the fun!
Thanks to all for the kinds words. And damn you all for making me perpetually homesick!

Rich echoed this well.
FNC is has been reliable for most Americans, except for the brazen statists like yourself and a few others resident to this blog :)


In fairness, for the umpteenth time; you and your ilk keep getting the political opinion shows - mainly conservative right-wing intermingled with the news wing of Fox. They are two separate entities who are on the same network.

For one thing, it is difficult to accuse Shepard Smith, one of the main newscasters of right-wing bias - more than not, he challenges conservative viewpoints.

Woody Held

I like Rich Johnson. He is a homey, sort of. He can hold himself professionally even working for the3rd Reich. Mazeltop, Richie!


I liked Bill Vitka when he was still at CBS, before he started pimping for FOX.


Well,I guess it is possible to be an honest legal counsel for the mob. But, I'm not counting on it.

Still, I don't begrudge a step up in the profession.

I'm pretty cynical about anything Ailes and Murdoch and the Saudi family has it's hands and money in.

Rich Johnson

Debates like this are why I can't wait until hurricane season. Part of my new gig will be the opportunity to cover non-DC, non-political news. Eventually. And now I know all about Christian Louboutin shoes. Talk about win-win!


I don't know about the radio side of Fox News but the Daily Show with Jon Stewart has featured many examples of right-wing bias on the news programs. Also there was a documentary a couple of years ago that showed the same thing.

Jaynie Dillon Jones

Who wouldn't/doesn't like Rich Johnson? But it's sad that he's been swept up by Fox...

chuck says joanie is a liar. (because she lies)

Do you suppose that Jon Stewart would feature examples of left wing bias on his program?

Puget Sound

I like rich johnson and he'll do fine.

looks like david shuster is smelling the coffee and jumping ship to CNN. but he got caught....

Shyster in big trouble....

Gregg Morris


Read about your Dad today in The Oregonian. My best to you and your family. He was a good man, and a great fisherman.
