    Liberal talk-radio network set for debut

    By Jennifer Harper
    THE WASHINGTON TIMES

    Conservatives, plug your ears: Liberal talk radio is finally here.
    Al Franken and a host of garrulous progressives ease onto the airwaves tomorrow morning on America Left, broadcasting live from 6 a.m. to midnight on weekdays via XM Satellite Radio and three AM radio stations — in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.
    Mr. Franken will debut at noon with "The O'Franken Factor," a three-hour daily show airing opposite conservative host Rush Limbaugh, who has 20 million listeners. Mr. Franken once wrote a book titled "Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot" and has named his show as a parody of "The O'Reilly Factor," hosted by Bill O'Reilly of Fox News.
    Mr. Franken, who has scuffled with conservatives for years, is primed for a fight.

    "My first priority is to get sued by a right-wing jerk in order to generate interest in my new show," Mr. Franken said in a statement earlier this year.

    Full story

    Hey Al, here is an idea. Try growing interest for your new show by talking about ideas people want to hear and make it interesting.
    Oh well hoping to be sued will probably be much easier.

    Hahahahaha "The O'Franken Factor" That's a great one! Hahaha...


    :slap:

    He's setting himself up for failure, he'll have a hard time getting the liberal Limbaugh listeners to switch over even. They love to hate Rush too much.

    Actually, I'll probably start listening to Al Franken just so I can justify feeling grumpy and agitated.

    Edit: Their one bastion of hope is Alan Colmes... I may not agree with much of what he says but he's a very intelligent guy.

    Al Franken and Ben Stein had a public debate at my school. It was called the Franken-Stein debate. Anyway, Al Franken is well spoken, but other than that, I wasn't impressed, although it was one of the most amusing things I've ever seen.

    Wow, he sounds intelligent. :rolleyes:

    I'm finding this more and more common with liberals. It's like they don't say anything to support themselves, instead they try to just say anything to piss off the right side. It's disgusting.

    Hobbit, where did you see them at? They came to the UofA and it was great. Al Franken and Ben Stein were both great and even autographed whatever you had.

    Was it a debate or a comedy show? Ben Stein is a really intelligent guy but he is not someone I would want defending conservative values. He is now much more an actor than a political analyist... in fact, has he ever spoken out politically besides writing speeches for Nixon?
