Lovin' The Liberal Media



It's a little good news in the political sea of crap. I am happy to see that Mike Malloy will be back on the radio again. Mike was the night host on Air America until recently. He was the one I listened to most regularly. While I also liked Randi Rhodes I haven't listened to Air America since Mike has gone. Mike is a little more liberal than I am on a number of issues however there are so many places where he is right on the money. He is not afraid to lay it out in black and white. He is just the kind of fighter I hope to be. He pulls no punches and can bulldog the right like no one else can. Randi is good too but Mikes' serious, confident but non screeching delivery and approach beats all speaking for the left these days. If the rightists want to hear what REAL liberal media sounds like I would encourage them to listen to Mike. Compare the difference between the TV networks and anything else they use as an excuse for liberal media. Maybe then they will develop something like true perspective. Yes there are those that STILL complain about the “liberal” media. I have come to the conclusion that anything that doesn't agree with the right wing agenda or the Cheney administration is the lying liberal media. Of course the liberal media are also an excuse for the blameaholics when things don't go as they planned or they get nailed on their shenanigans. The most recent example is Curt Weldon of Pennsylvania. Remember, this is the guy who famously wanted to get a shovel and go on his own hunt for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Now Mr. Blameaholic Weldon is telling us the liberal media/conspiracy is the reason he and his family are in trouble.
In addition to blaming the D.C.-based watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) and its head, Melanie Sloan (who filed a complaint against Weldon with the FBI -- in 2004), the cabal (according to Weldon) now includes: former President Bill Clinton; former CIA official Mary McCarthy; former senior Justice Department official/9-11 Commission panelist Jamie Gorelick; former national security adviser Sandy Berger ("I know what he stole -- I know why he stole it!"); and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
Here are some of the case details coming NOT from the liberal media.
Yes ladies and gentleman. These are the wingnuts in charge of our country. These are the people calling the liberals crazy.
Even Rush Limbaugh has moved on from “liberal” media. Seems he now uses “drive by media”. I have no idea what that is suppose to mean so I can't discuss it. That is also why it is a lame moniker. Does anyone who doesn't listen to Rush know what it means?
Listen to Mike Malloy starting October 30th right here for some real liberal media. The station is actually the start of the next generation in liberal radio. They have some great people lined up. Randi Rhodes, the always entertaining Stephanie Miller and of course Mike Malloy. Read more about it here.

Ron, I checked the website and apparently Mike Malloy will only be webcasting. Do you have other info? I listen usually to Al Franken on XM. Hopefully Net Neutrality will remain, if not, combined with the other coporatists media takeovers, then the U.S. will be another step toward living behind the iron curtain. Saw Thomas Hartman on C-Span today, a replay of 9/9/6. Wonderful program if you ever get to see it. He mentioned that FDR spoke about many of the things that we face today.

The Chaves County Democratic Party is better than it has been in a long time: leadership, organization and motivation. Gov. Richardson may actually carry Chaves Co. and a chance to win back State House District 58. I think it is the only local district that does not go into the surrounding counties. BTW, do you know anything about Dist. 57 Green Party Candidate, Cynthia Morrison? She apparently lives or works in the Alamogordo area.
There appears to be little info about her and little campaigning by her. This is Foley's district and he also has a Republican write-in opponent. No Democratic opponent though. The Republican infighting in Roswell has increased with more splintering than is usual even in Roswell.

"Drive-by" anything usually refers to a hit and run tactic. The term originated
from the "drive-by" shootings by gang members. Years ago heard Limbaugh make a reference to a "drive-by" apology by Jessie Jackson.

What station are you on?

Larry: He is on terresterial radio but no chance it will be anywhere near southern nm. Web works, that is how I always listened to him before.
Tom Hartman is on that station too. Good guy. A populist slant for sure.I saw him on book tv..is that the one? Glad to hear things are good for Dems. I haven't really had time to get the political lay of the land here yet. I live in the part of otero county that is not in foleys district.

Ron, yes, it was Book TV that I saw Thom Hartman on. Politically, Alamogordo votes mostly Republican like Roswell.

Ron,

I see where the Weldon case could be a bit of a deal, but I also see stuff like that going on all the time, with no repercussions for anyone.

What am I misunderstanding about this? There aren't even, from what I can see, any charges currently leveled against him. It's just a bunch of corporate-level b.s.

Thanks.

You are right dedanna. The thing is if you dig into him Weldon is a real nut job. Evidence him wanting to go over to Iraq and get a shovel and dig for the WDM himself. There is much more if you dig into what he has said and done. The other is just an additional reason for him to not be a leader of Americans.
