Laugh it up, you two. If legitimate papers go, we're all in serious trouble. And you'll have nothing to riff on.

Gotta have something to wrap the fish in. And line the birdcage.

Good post, Piker.

It's good to see us agree on something from time to time. Makes me have faith in humanity!

Just like you like seeing Coulter on TV, I feel the same way about Rosie. The more the "fringe" (regardless if it is Left or Right fringe) speak, the more the DNC/RNC profit.

The Market will generally decide what "it" wants to hear/see. If there is a market where progressive talk radio can flourish, it will. Boulder, CO has AAR still on, but also has a local guy in the morning, and Ed Schultz in the afternoon. It's on the air because Boulder (and probably part of Denver too) wants to hear it.

As far as getting my news, I get it from the same place you probably do: online. By the time 6pm rolls around, the news they are reporting on has already been updated several times via the internet. Same for my local paper.

First of all, the Right does not have a monopoly on extremist nutcases who immediately drop into ad hominem attack when even mildly challenged. Check the controversy in SF city hall right now (Lots on SFGate.com): City Supe Chris Daly, a card-carrying member of the infantile left, apparently exists to oppose everything Gavin Newsom thinks or does. He recently accused him, out of the clear blue sky, of doing blow.

But Daly is widely considered (except for the progressive bloc) as a giant sniveling toddler, a poor player who struts and frets etc. etc. Now Ann Coulter: she still gets called to a plushy chair on cable chat shows regularly. Of course, she gets called back for two reasons: Good looking blond, and the right-wing Tourette's thing. Great television.

I wonder what her childhood was like?
