Alan Colmes: hey, why are Dems running as warhawks?

Al Franken once blasted Alan Colmes as liberal-lite and even spelled his name in shrunken, lowercase letters.

In his books, Franken lambasted Colmes at every opportunity. Years later, however, the longtime commentator, radio and television host has an opportunity to turn the tables against the now-Minnesota senator.

With the alleged comedian now up for re-election, Franken really does sound like the very Republicans he spent years criticizing, a point not many on the left have been willing to make.

But at Liberaland, his website, Colmes didn’t skip the opportunity: Read all »

Arabic signs added at Toronto’s airport for Syrian refugees

For a wave of arriving Syrian refugees, the Canadian government is bending over backwards today, even printing airport signs in Arabic. In addition, it has built a makeshift reception and processing area at Pearson Airport.

But as Toronto’s Newstalk 1010 found, the Trudeau Administration’s red carpet effort is not without glitches: when translated, its “washroom” signs were somehow printed backwards, appearing closer to Klingon than Arabic. Read all »

Geraldo makes CA shootings all about himself: ‘Miss me yet?’

Is it time for Geraldo Rivera to take a much-needed break from Twitter?

As the longtime Fox News Channel contributor tried to make yesterday’s San Bernardino terror attack about himself, a series of unusually narcissistic (even for him) and inaccurate tweets had followers howling. Read all »

No means yes (to another round of election-year Rush-bashing)

Hey, it may (or may not) have worked last time, so why not try it again?

Looking to relaunch 2012’s War on Women, liberal activists have been waiting for a good chance to twist Rush Limbaugh’s words to power their OUTRAGE (!!!!!!!) Machine. It’s like rocket fuel for the angry left.

Today, they think they’ve found it. In a monologue from yesterday’s show, Limbaugh said this: Read all »

EXCLUSIVE: Key analyst says talk radio’s biggest companies close to pulling the plug

It was a move that sent shudders through an already-nervous radio industry: Pittsburgh’s WPGB-FM suddenly dumped its talk format, switching to country music. The early August change meant America’s biggest hosts would have to relocate to a small, 7000-watt AM station.

Because it conflicted directly with the expected trend of moving talk AWAY from AM in favor of FM, many took it as a sign industry giant Clear Channel had made a U-turn. With digital streaming services and other emerging technologies stealing music fans from radio by the millions, talk was seen as the one format that could keep traditional broadcasting alive.

Local media speculated the real problem was excess clutter which keeps the average hour clogged up with extremely long commercial sets, news and weather breaks, plus recorded mini-features. Whatever the case, the medium that has done so much to change the national political landscape and inspired others around the world to do the same suddenly seemed more endangered. Read all »

Now, even Al Franken ‘troubled by’ Obama’s inaction

Is  a pattern forming here?

In the past 24 hours, not one but two former Air America Radio liberal talk hosts have aired public concerns over Obama’s ISIS / terror inaction. Earlier, we wrote about Montel Williams suddenly taking issue with the president. Are the rats jumping off the ship?

Now, it has emerged that Senator Al Franken has written a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder expressing his seeming astonishment: “I was troubled by the President’s recent suggestion that the Administration has not yet developed a comprehensive strategy to address the growing threat of ISIL’s activities in Syria.”

Has Franken joined the “lying liars” he once lambasted in his anti-Limbaugh/Fox/conservative screeds? Read all »

Even Montel Williams is pleading with Obama for leadership

In the face of public indecision while the world falls apart, just how badly has Obama’s image been damaged?

Even the guy who formerly peddled “presidential coins” bearing his likeness is now demanding leadership. Onetime Air America Radio liberal talker Montel Williams used his Twitter account Tuesday to request “a strategy for pursuing ISIS in Syria”: Read all »

Back in jail: radio creep who allegedly shot wife

You’d think a bald guy with a double chin might thank his lucky stars for somehow being able to marry a beautiful blonde woman. But a Cincinnati talk host allegedly showed his appreciation by shooting his wife in the back. Not much self-awareness, buddy?

Though he swears it was an accident, 55KRC talker Blake Seylhouwer hasn’t convinced authorities of that. After pleading not guilty to the shooting (which Misty Seylhouwer luckily survived), he’s facing new charges related to violating a protective order. Read all »

Rush: Republican leadership prefers Hillary over Cruz!

Clearly frustrated over what he sees as a self-defeating Republican leadership, Rush Limbaugh took to Facebook today for an unusual mid-program update.

Slamming the party for its seeming hostility toward at least one of its contenders for the presidential nomination, he wrote, “I have the idea the Republican leadership would be happier with Hillary Clinton as president than Ted Cruz, and that’s not just a feeling. I know that almost for a fact.” Read all »

Did the left write off Hannity too soon?

Bigger than ever, Sean Hannity is back. The only problem: he was never gone.

When the Fox News Channel moved his show from 9pm to 10pm, the left wrote him off. It was said that the later timeslot was broadcast Siberia.

Even though he made it clear on numerous occasions he was happy with the change, the left did not want to believe him. The Daily Beast even asked whether Megyn Kelly was “pushing Hannity out of Fox News Primetime.” There, Lloyd Grove wrote that “Hannity’s niceness won’t help the fading anchor’s case.” Read all »
