KTLK - "Versnick said he's not sure if the station will turn to classic rock again next weekend, but as far as a KTLK changing gears entirely, he said that's not the plan."
Yeah, I'll believe that as soon as it snows in Frorida in July.
Hey folks! The downhill slide is just beginning. The Obama generation is taking hold, and we will not let these goons keep playing their stupid little games with trashing every Democrat around
You might want to wake up from your little dream and come back to reality! The Obama generation is having a big case of voters remorse lately!

It's funny that people think that NPR is a pro-Obama station. I've heard liberals refer to NPR standing for Nice Polite Republicans.

Best news I've heard! Next best thing will be when they realize they can't make a profit with Rush, Hannity, and Lewis. If you want to listen to the real talk radio turn on NPR. They don't berate people and they have the real facts on the health proposal not misinformation. As Linda Douglass, White House spokeperson, said the media is "taking sentences and phrases out of context and cobbling them together to leave a very false impression." KTLK is scaring the public with their misinformation.

Yeah, way to cheer on the suppression of free speech. Let me guess, you were probably one of the losers that called Bush a fascist huh? Yet you glorify in Obama's fascism. What a hypocrite.

Thank you! Thank you for saying this bit of truth, KTLK's lineup is so full of rubbish I can't stomach it anymore. I prefer NPR also, news instead of innuendo and sometimes pure hatred.

Rest assured, NPR is filled with misinformation, and disinformation, too. It is merely distributed in a different way.

Nancy, you are quite wrong here. NPR is a tool of the right wing. They are the funding base behind this propaganda machine & heaven help you if you do a negative story on the Republi-thugs.

There are very few radio outlets that speak the truth due to all of radio being part of the big corporate media. YOu simpply are not able to say anything if you are going to either hurt the sponsors or the ownership.

It is a fact.

Thanks for the head's up. I'll have to be more carefully when watching Frontline; Bill Moyers' Journal; and Washington Week With Gwen Ifill. I always thought they were fair journalist who just provided us with information to help us make the best decisions.

Yep, I got dibs on this on a couple other sites. I found it Sunday before it went viral on Monday. It reminds me of 'V for Vendetta'. I expect to see this more and more as the Obama Amateur Hour carries on, after all, isn't dissent patriotic?

You may have the honor, as I didn't find it until yesterday. Now, just to find the "not as good as this, but not bad" Mad Magazine parody...

Only when the left protests and questions authority is it deemed patriotic and a right.

If the Right does it they are called Tea bagging fascists. Funny how the town hall meeting protesters are all labeled as paid protesters of the right.

Again what was ACORN?

I am so confused. Maybe Nancy can make my mind right.

I missed this great weekend, for I avoid KTLK as I would bubonic plague. A weekend of Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, George Thorogood, and ZZ Top would clearly outrank the usual hatred and hysteria of the right-wing blowhards!

Let's hope they go back -- Jack -- and do it again! Wheel turnin''round and 'round ...

Is that you, Al Frankin? Do you fear an opposing opinion?

I'm not a big Rush fan but he espouses a view, his right to free speech?

Are you against free speech?

Talk about a real life metaphor for the current healthcare debate. You want us to turn away from a free market, right wing radio format that requires NO Gov't funding and turn to NPR? NPR, a heavily Gov't subsidized radio outlet that is managed by "FOR PROFIT" managemnent teams.

Now had you said, turn away from a free market, right wing radio format in favor of a turn away from a free market, left wing radio format...Oh, wait a minute...where is Air America?

That's what they told us during the Bush administration.

Rush has the same right to freedom of speech as you or I. You know, equal rights under law. Apparently, you think that some citizens are more equal than others -- that he has a "right" to a radio show. As a conservative you should know that the Market allows him his show -- NOT his "rights."

BTW, disliking his point-of-view is NOT the same as "fearing" it. I try not to step in dog piles -- not because I "fear" them, because they disgust me -- gifts that "keep on giving," so to speak. A lot like Rush, only more pleasing.

I think we all better get our act together real fast and stop all this right - left crap. They are mostly all crooks and they mostly all work for big banks. There are a few honest politicians like Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich. Those two guys (one republican, the other democrat) couldn't be more opposite in their views. But they are some of the VERY, VERY few honest politicians in Washington right now.

If you aren't talking about our monetary policy and our foreign policy, then you aren't talking about anything important. These policies are at the head of nearly every thing we do, are controlled by and benefit very powerful people who could care less whether McCain or Obama won. No matter who is in the whitehouse the policies continue: killing brown people and looting the American taxpayers.

Until we stop playing their game and decide to get mad at the man behind the curtain instead of each other, our problems are going to continue.

In my honest opinion, I d not believe the United States of America will exist in 5 years. I am not confidant it will exist by the end of -this- year. And no, I don't know exactly what that means ad it is doubtful anyone else does either. The exponential looting -is- coming to an end though and NORTHCOM is ready for anything.

And to answer another post, I don't listen to right wing radio. I don't listen to ANY radio because the pentagon has already admitted that they use the media, spending billions every year, to lie to the public. The pentagon works for offshore bankers. If you actually take the time, much of their policies are spelled out in plain English. I get my news from CFR, IMF, Club of Rome, etc. You know, the kind of people our puppet politicians bow down to.

It would be nice if we didn't actually have to argue about this and folks would take their country back.
