Holy fuck, was that an experience in barbarism or what?Blame all around...one being the woman laughing nervously in the face of the idiot harridan's ridiculous hectoring. But then, I've never heard a host ambush and humiliate a guest like that.
ti-guy:It seems pretty obvious that Laura's most offensive contributions were during some kind of break when she wasn't on the air and perhaps wasn't even aware she was still being recorded.But that aside, even during the interview, she was being outrageously ungracious to her guest. To which the Wankersphere will, if they cared in the first place, would undoubtedly respond, "So ... what's your point?"
And this was someone who was ostensibly "conservative"... imagine what she says behind the back of "lefties"!
Talk-radio is a fucking wasteland, for the most part. When I lived in the 3rd World, I saw just how toxic it can be for people to be listening to radio at work and getting angried up (legitimately or not, mostly not...because the invective was rarely grounded in evidence) in a way that really drains energy, and confuses people into believing that that rage is the same thing as activism. This has been a particularly significant issue in the 3rd World where IMF demands forced the State to sell off their public broadcaster.It really is an unacceptable use/abuse of the public airwaves.
laura Ingram? you mean this Laura Ingram?http://kevinswoodshed.blogspot.com/2004/03/would-you-both-shut-up-and-think-kevin.html
Wow, Laura is pretty thin skinned for someone who claims to be such a big shot. It's really rather telling, and more than a bit pitiful.You'd think the woman had called her a hateful anorexic xenophobe-skank. Wait - bad example. It's as though the woman had called her sort of chubby.
I have no idea who this radio host is. But she strikes me as someone in need of heavy psychiatric assessment. As Tony Cox said in Bad Santa: "You need many years of therapy. Many, many f*ckin' years of therapy."
Jesus, Raph, you've never heard of Laura Ingraham? You need to get out more often.
The only talk radio I've listened to is, of course, Canadian. CFRB 1010 has many good Conservative pundits, but I actually prefer John Moore and the politically neutral Jim Richards and Ryan Doyle. Those two are pretty funny.
Let's hope the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council (which forced insane and morally-corrupt harridan Laura Schlessinger off of Canada's airwaves) can keep the "Conservatives" (just unlettered angry men and their mafia molls and biker chick girlfriends, mostly) on talk radio on a short leash.Their licenses do not permit them to trash a common good like the public airwaves.
She is on the board of the International Women's forum.....http://rightweb.irc-online.org/profile/1485.htmlThe IWF is well connected to the Bush administration through various public figures, such as Elaine Chao, labor secretary, former Heritage Foundation fellow, and wife of Christian right leader Rep. Mitch O’Connell (R-KY). Lynne Cheney, who was until recently an IWF board member, is wife of Bush’s vice president; Paula Dobriansky was a board member before joining the administration as undersecretary of state for global affairs; and IWF member Lynne Munson is deputy chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The International Women’s Forum is using its high-powered media staff and publications connections to ensure that the issue of boys’ rights and the perceived repression of boys by the women’s movement become the leading civil rights issues of this decade. Internationally, the Independent Women’s Forum, along with religious right and right-wing social conservative organizations such as Concerned Women for America, Family Research Council, International Right to Life Federation, and American Life League, have either been granted or are seeking NGO consultative status with the United Nations with the encouragement of the Bush administration. (2)Nuff said. Shes a neobot.
I can't stand Ryan Doyle. His grammar is sooooo poor, and even worse, he gets perturbed and puzzled at proper grammatical constructs that he reads -- because they don't sound "right" to him.Besides this, his "topics" are unintelligent and reveal his unsophistication every time he speaks.He has no business being an on-air personality.He's a big "low" for CFRB.
