    Sealy, and those other of you who have been proclaiming that the lib talkers would skin the hide of the conservative talkers if they were only given a fair shot, here it is!

    You have your wish in the best market ever! You have Washington, DC, Lib central (especially with the new administration and both houses held by the Dems). You have WTNT who has decided to go to a mixed talk format. So, now you will have Ed Schultz (whoever that is.....one of your guys though) going head to with Rush from 12 - 3 PM.

    Let's see who wins! Ed Schultz is followed by Monica Crowley so Conservatives don't tune in too early or you'll get political whiplash :lol:

    I don't know who he is, but I like what I found on Wikipedia:

    Air America Feud
    On February 13, 2007, Schultz dedicated the first hour of his show to a heated monologue against Air America Radio. Air America host Sam Seder suggested that the XM Air America channel should only have Air America hosts on it and reportedly asked his viewers to call XM to remove Schultz in favor of Air America host Thom Hartmann, who replaced Al Franken. Schultz interpreted this as an attack from the entire network. Other hosts on Air America have made negative comments about Schultz, saying he is not liberal or progressive enough.[citation needed] They've also made light of his rural accent and location in Fargo, North Dakota.[citation needed] Schultz responded by saying Air America "sucks" and "If you listen to Air America, I don't want you to listen to the Ed Schultz show cause I'm better than them!" Schultz also stated, "They're bankrupt ... they don't know how to run radio," alluding to Air America's chronic financial problems.

    Fuck Ed Schultz! I like the guy and all, but he's not our spokesman.

    See, this is proof the media isn't liberal anymore. Did you know Ed used to be a Conservative/Republican?

    I like him, don't get me wrong, but he is not who I would pick to go against Rush.

    WHo would I pick? Randi Rhodes? Where is Randi? I believe she got fired. Why? Because she tells it like it is. She explains how the oil companies are gouging us. She explains how the sub prime crash happened. She explains how deregulations fucked up the economy.

    Bottom line is, Ed Schultz is a lightweight.

    All this proves is the radio media has been purchased by corporations and since the Dems are in charge, and they must, they will reluctently give us a liberal show, but it won't be anything close to Rush Limbaugh.

    So for you cock suckers who will now bash Randi, remember, you have Rush. If you think Randi lies, Rush is an even bigger liar.

    So whatever reasons you are going to give for why they didn't put Randi on, remember, you are probably going to discribe Rush to a tee.

    Is she outragous, annoying, opinionated, loud, knows her facts, can spin with the best of them?

    What do you have to say about Randi? Now, consider what a prick Rush is.

    So if you want to let us fight fire with fire, don't put Ed Schultz on.

    And don't tell me this is fair and balanced.

    The only media you hear is the media that the corporations allow you to hear.

    All the shit you hear me saying, is all true, but you think I'm a nut because you aren't hearing it on your tv.

    For example, and it is a great example, why isn't the corporate media talking about this?

    Last week (the week of February 23, 2009) was a very productive one for Ron Paul. On Monday he posted, "On Transparency of the Fed," which applauded the Fed's recent initiatives to enhance its transparency and accountability. However, Paul went on to say, "But with so much of the Fed’s business cloaked in secrecy, these latest initiatives will not even scratch the surface of the Fed’s opaque operations." Furthermore, according to Paul, "People are demanding answers and explanations for our economic malaise, and we should settle for nothing less than the whole truth on monetary policy."

    Therefore, Paul announced:





    "The first step is to pass legislation I will soon introduce requiring an audit of the Federal Reserve so we can at least get an accurate picture of what is happening with our money. If this audit reveals what I suspect, and Congress has finally had enough, they can also pass my legislation to abolish the Federal Reserve and put control of the economy’s lifeblood, the currency, back where it Constitutionally belongs. If Congress refuses to do these two things, the very least they could do is repeal legal tender laws and allow people to choose a different currency in which to operate. If the Fed refuses to open its books to an audit, and Congress refuses to demand this, the people should not be subject to the whims of this secretive and incompetent organization."



    HR 1207- Auditing the Federal Reserve



    And why isn't Ed Schultz talking about it? Ed's good, but not our best. Figures the corporate media would pick someone who isn't our best.

    Or Thom Hartmann. He speaks the truth.

    I didn't know all this happened. Interesting.

    But I think Ed is good. Not the best, but he speaks the truth.

    He should do alright against Rush.

    He won't win over much of Rush's audience, but he will tap into a market that has been ignored for 8 years.

    Can anyone say that if a person got half of rush's audience numbers, that this show would not be profitable? Even if he got half of Rush's numbers, that would be a profitable show.

    Rush makes $40 million. If Ed gets half of his numbers, will they pay him $20 million? I doubt it, because Rush is being paid for spewing his right wing rhetoric.

    The station owners will not even let Ed get out of line like they let Rush.

    I decided to listen to a little bit of it just to get a flavor of lib talk.

    I was treated to why the right is so wrong about card check. And a treatise on why any Dem senator that doesn't toe the line "on card check won't be around much longer."

    Conclusion, Ed sounds like a very angry guy.

    I don't know, Ed Shultz is a pretty smart guy. He sat in for one of them on MSNBC the other night. He doesn't just sit there reading articles like Rush does, he actually argues points.

    If you lean right, you will listen and like Rush. If you are sane, you will probably like listening to Ed more than Rush.

    But I would have picked a couple other hosts before Ed.

    Apparently Ed doesn't threaten the corporate media, so they'll put him on.

    PS. Putting him on in the middle of right wing talk is a mistake. THis is the mistake other stations have made. Put him on another station, where liberals can flock.

    If they expect Ed to win over right wingers, they can think again. Those right wingers are brainwashed and nothing will get them to change.

    If 8 years of Bush didn't get them to change, nothing will.
