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.

Peter B has such an easy manner about him..always underutilized..I will continue to listen to his podcast. Karel and Pat Thurston should be worried...


Walter Chronic from "Cold Turkey?" Glad to see you're still reporting!


It has gotten worse according to Rich Lieberman's blog http://richliebermanreport.blogspot.com/2012/02/kgo-doomsday-kcbskqedkoit-deliver.html

Regional Mexicana is pulling a better share than KGO


There's not enough radio in Seattle anymore to sustain a radio blog. We might have to start talking about KUOW. Ross Reynolds had a guest today who is being bashed along with his buddy Nick Hanauer at Publicola: Rob McKenna.

I still love Peter B. even though I disagree with him tolerance of the 911 conspiracy theorists. He's an independent fella with the best bumper music in the business.

To bad KGO just keeps on with the BAD decisions...I am looking for other stations to fill in the blanks. BIG MISTAKE KGO, I stopped listening during the week and now you have messed up the weekends!


What if they are not in it for money. I know, they must be. But if they are profiting off other stations, maybe they want to stop liberal talk altogether. Why ot? In the long run, the fewer talkers on the left, the more the right-wing machine succeeds. That may benefit the further down the line. The Koch Brothers and ALEC have lots of strategies to take out the left. They don't care about profiting in the short run if they can run the country in the long run.


I agree and so do a lot of former KGO listeners..

Truth seeker,
Lots of radio listeners, its just concentrated in sports talk.
We have two sports stations that remain local during the day.

Bring on the boogeymen from the left. And on the other side - Media Matters - directed by David Brock, a former in-patient at a mental institution is trying to take out institutions of the right like Fox News and talk radio. They and other media corps like the Tides Foundation, Open Society and Americans for Progress (all funded by George Soros) are in full pursuit of bringing down those institutions in favor of the borderless one-world order control by this unsavory cabal.


Left out one world - this should read;

When KGO lets go of Ronn Owens, then it will be all over....

It will be interesting how long Media Matters will retain its tax status given what has come to light.

"Daily Caller senior online editor Vince Coglianese paid a visit to Fox News’ Fox & Friends to shed more light on the site’s ongoing investigation and exposé into the liberal media watchdog group. He explained that the group’s tax-exempt status basically amounts to “taking a government subsidy in order to attack a for-profit company like Fox News and News Corp. So you have a company that is free of tax, federal taxes, people can donate to and have a tax write-off and it’s classified as an ‘educational charity,’ but, by any conventional standard, doesn’t meet any of those metrics.”


Yes, PS - seems like the world is currently upside down. Looking at the status of Media Matters that you stated and the makeup of the current administration, it continues to follow a disturbing pattern they have set; Up is down, correct is wrong, wrong is correct and the sky is red not blue...


I didn't know media matters was the topic...


By the same token, the Koch Brothers had nothing to do with the topic.


Yes, they did. Read it again.

If you are gonna play at being 'thread cop' then at least be consistent.


The echo chamber. Haha. You two are funny.

    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....
