Monica,

The 25th Annual International Radio Broadcasting Awards today Manhattan Tribeca Rooftop. Seven Radio Legends have been nominated only one will win. Don Imus is among the nominees. I Wish him well I hope he wins he deserves the award.

Even better would be if they let the man back on the American Airwaves, where he belongs..My mornings were ruined..mine and a whole bunch of other Imus in the Morning Fans..I just want my mornings back...what is wrong with Les Moonves? Is he running a network or is he a legal expert, who only cares about Lawsuits? I know Howard Stern addressed this in an interview, he said, Les Moonves is unqualified to run a major network. Given the information available, I am going to have to concur with Mr Sterns.

What is the status of IMUS, Charles and Bernie? I was standing in front of our kitchen sink yesterday morning listening to a local morning news show here in Boston area and thought to myself, "I miss the morning humor and the candid interviews provided by Imus and his gang". My hope is that another network puts the "Imus In the Morning Show" back on the TV Screen and radio, and I should think that between the lawsuit proceeds that IMUS is entitled to and a new contract, Imus and the rest of the crew could come out winners after being victimized by MSNBC.

Of course the Democrats would want to shut down what's become the national Town Forum: Talk Radio. Their libs, progs and lefties clearly can't compete in the Free Market of Ideas and Personality. If they could, why did their Air America, despite astounding publicity and support by MSM, implode even in New York City, a Liberal Valhalla? Galling? This has got to be scary for them, especially in ratings that can't be manipulated like elections. Senator Finestein csn't be happy with the one medium that might look into how her husband has made a fortune in China. Even MSM cover for libs has some limitations. Democrats have always loved the (sic) Fairness Doctrine, knowing it will suffocate and terrorize a free and open media that does not "behave."...........

Bill Ruder, an assistant secretary of commerce under John F. Kennedy, admitted to CBS News producer Fred Friendly that

“Our massive strategy was to use the Fairness Doctrine to challenge and harass right-wing broadcasters and hope the challenges would be so costly to them that they would be inhibited and decide it was too expensive to continue.” {h/t http://www.agoravox.com/article.php3?id_article=6325/)

................And so you think the Dems are the only species of pol who want to strangle a free and open National Forum? Think again. It's well known that Richard Nixon's "enemies list" extended to broadcasters. And now that Georgie Bush's Bidness Globalistas have had their Amnesty Travesty throttled in the U.S. Senate, phone lines to Congress burning up, all due to the will of the people, does any owner of an impartial brain believe that Pubs are not listening to Senator Lott who reminds them that they need to "deal" with Talk Radio?

The Free Radio Forum of America: Sure, the libs and progs hate what they can't control. But some very, very important Pubs are no longer happy with it either.

Arguably,it might come down to who will next occupy the White House and appoint the #5 to FCC who swings it either to the two libs or the two cons. You know what a Dem will do. And you think you know what a Pub will do.


ps. Wanted to mention Monica and the Fred Train that's comin' round the bend, which she thinks will chug to a halt. Maybe later.

The rumor is that it is Moonves holding things up he is into lawsuits and apparently running networks into the ground..CBS and NBC ratings are down..Brian Williams and Katie Couric...When Imus left he took his Audience with him...you can google this. the figure of his listeners and viewership somewhere around 3 million. I expect they can't keep him off the Air, I just wish Imus in the Morning comes back sooner then later. They started with the Moderate Dems and now they are going down their list this in reference to the Fairness Doctrine.

Phil

How about a fairness doctrine for the newspaper and magazine media? Especially for the NY Times, how about forcing them to hire conservative columnists?

PETE

Many of the so-called talk hosts the left labels "Right Wing" often air sound clips of ridiculous rants of leftists they take issue with and then rebut what they said. Airing such clips IS effectively presenting both sides of an issue. Ridiculing the clips is expressing an opinion.

Moreover, who Senator Feinstein whines that some talk hosts are harsh, most of us know which blacklisted host she is referring to because that host has been relentless critical of her and her husband's war profiting exploits.

As Gringoman so elequently points out, The left seeks to intimidate those with with different views than their socialist agenda. They are likely mad as hell that talk radio succeeded in mobilizing the public outcry against the "Abomination Shamnesty Bill" they sought to sneak past WE THE PEOPLE. Don't be surprised if some will now seek revenge by trying to pass a bill bringing back "The Un-Fairness Doctrine" which exempts their allies in the mainstream media.

WE MUST BE EVER VIGILENT BEWARE OF THE GOVERNMENT - MEDEA COMPLEX.

And most of all, we must know and remember the names of those Senators who fought so hard to pass the ABOMINATION SHAMNESTY BILL so that we VOTE THEM OUT OF OFFICE at the next election!

Keep up the great work, looking forward to this weekends show and hopefully a link someday!

Lovely. Encourage the "fairness" debate over free speech. Americans, real Americans, leave the benches and sidelines over this one. What an ingenious plan to swell the ranks of the listeners to talk radio focusing on conservative values. Want to create patriotic Americans and turn fence-sitters into First Amendment defenders? Give the left-liberal-progressives all the talk-rope they yearn for. It just keeps getting better. What a great day to be building a value oriented conservative based listenership -- I need to see if I can "get a show" while the left is helping build audience for the right. Lovely...

[Note: This is a thorough redaction---for other purposes--- of the gringommentary above on the 'Fairness' issue. Due to length, I won't post the entirety here.]

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The Fairness Doctrine would likely attract George Orwell. He had a nose for shifty language. The Fairness Doctrine is to fairness as Air America is to America: camouflage for socialist frustration with the free market.

Of course Democrats and progressives and Soros workers feel a fatal attraction. The Fairness Doctrine targets their bane of banes, conservative Talk Radio. Such uppity Talk Radio unnerves them, despite the explosion in other media outlets for every imaginable opinion, lunacy and ideology , from Stalinism to Hitlerism to Hillarycare.

The (sic) Fairness Doctrine, by sigging the dogs of Bureaucracy, PC police and "equal time" on radio---an idea too ludicrous to use against corporate MSM and other media--- would in effect shut down what's become the national Town Forum.

Still, the progressivists must and will try. Talk Radio, for them, is unfair: too free-wheeling, too irreverent, too popular, too politically incorrect. In other words, too American, too democratic in a dangerous sense, too vox populi for governmental taste.

Worse yet, Talk Radio seems to tilt Right at a time when most intelligentsia, bureaucracies, academics, junkies, pornographers and speculator billionaires like George Soros want the U.S. tilting Left. European eliteniks and their U.S. counterparts, either in envy or horror, see American Talk Radio as a Wild West of megaherz and kilohertz. It's just too American! It must be tamed, or better yet, destroyed.

The Left, earnest foe of cannibal capitalism, has a perennial fairness dilemna : How to deal with the huge numbers it sees as either too ignorant or too ill-intentioned for Mondo Socialismus. The Left appears to know how smart, knowledgeable, sophisticated, legalistic, and righteous it is. Its press and publications constantly demonstrate this to itself. Books, judges, bureaucrats and tenured professors back up the Truthiness. On the web many thousands will spout these accepted Truths handed down from the mandarin elite. It's heady. They feel empowered, kicking U.S. imperialist butt. It can also bolster their potty-mouth anger against "the idiots, the morons, the wingnuts, the anti-abortionists, the Christian crazies etc. And don't forget the corporate overlords who won't invent energy-saving electric cars, or let us invent them. They profit from oil and war, the bourgeois bastards, and make the muslims mad at us."

Yet the problem continues. Outside of Hollywood and the campus soviets, so many still don't adopt the Left's vision thing. Worse yet, so many flock to Talk Radio,

The crux of the problem: Left media, despite decades of effort, can't seem to function in a free market. It advocates for The People, yet the People turn away, even run away. Despite "listener donations," unless it gets hand-outs from Government and/or "progressive" philanthropists, it dies like a dog. The Left and a free market (of ideas too) mix like oil and water.

For the "progressive" and anti-American imperialist of all ages and pedigrees, this is deeply frustrating. Likely embittering. Without Congressional pork or Soros-type subsidy, they feel like the brunette who loses the guy to the blonde. It's not fair! And they're right. It's not fair. It just is.

Air America (despite the pretentious name, astonishng amount of free publicity and support by the 'non-biased' MSM) failed even in New York City, a Liberal Valhalla. Fair? Maybe not. Galling? And how. Ratings, being free market, apparently can't be manipulated like elections.,,,
