Right-wing radio got ya down?

Tired of listening to the same old right-wing noise machine on local radio stations? Well now you can hear something different. The Nookular Option, Toledo's best liberal talk radio is on WXUT 88.3 FM, every Saturday from 4-6pm.

Today we'll have Brian Rothenberg, Executive Director of Progress Ohio on the show.

I'm not a liberal, but I need a change. I like listening to Fred, but I turn off the radio when Limbaugh comes on. Is Limbaugh still on drugs?

What happened, the ABC, NBC, CBS noise networks get shut down?

Maybe we can get Hillary to screech about something for a couple hours.

I can hardly wait....
Bush is a war criminal...9/11 was an inside job....cheney has death squads...

I wonder if they booked Bill ayres or ward churchill yet...

Oh boy!

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

It's definitely time for liberal radio. I can't stand WSPD - can't stand anyone on there. If you're listening to WSPD, you've got nothing going in your life. A total waste of time. With our liberal president, and the country now leaning to the left, it's about time for liberal radio!

would be a lot better off if we got rid of left and right wing radio and television news networks. Wouldn't it be great if we could just get back to being Americans and getting the facts...instead of the "journalists" and their slanted commentary on every subject....both sides are guilty.

The Ann Coulter's and Rush Limbaugh's of this world do our country no service....and the Rachel Maddows and Keith Olbermans are useless as well.

...to welcome y'all back to the airwaves!

Too bad it's only on for 2 hours on Saturdays. I discovered 1310 (Air American - CNN) almost a year ago, and it's a breath of fresh air, compared to wspd. Of course it is national news, not local - but I've learned so much on that station, just interesting programs, all day long, every single day (different hosts of course every 3 hours). This station has explained what's going on in this country far better than wspd ever does. I used to listen to wspd all the time, but it's just turned vile this last year - it's nothing but constant bitching about Obama & anything not Republican, and wspd seems to put the strangest spins on things - where I shake my head in disbelief that they are talking about the same interviews, etc. that I listened to & saw, and wonder how can they come away with such strange takes on it. I catch myself getting disqusted & angry when I flip over to wspd, and flip back to 1310 - always interesting, the early Stephanie show is often funny, the hosts are very educated & highly informed & they have the most interesting experts on. All wspd does anymore is gripe.

and ignorance runs rampant..................

...and it was just as divisive and repulsing as the left claims right wing talk radio is.

Political Championship Wrestling- putting politics in proper perspective by presenting it as pro wrestling.

Coming in January, a political satire about the sorry state of American Politics- Jesusland vs. Progressiveville.

american heart - 1310 has several different programs - time slots -hosts - just as wspd does, I would not make the leap that all programs on wspd stink, based on one or two hosts - programs. Not sure which program you listened to on 1310 - but the Tom Hartman program (early afternoon) is excellent I think., as is the Ed Schultz program. Regardless of your political bent, those 2 programs bring so much information that is accurate & interesting (and often angering) - above & beyond anything I've heard with Rush & Beck. They don;t just blather on & rant, they bring in experts who provide details & facts, explanations, and Hartman I know is very well versed in history & knows his stuff - facinating program. I've learned a lot from his show that is not simply somebody's opinion - but actual down & dirty about what's been going on in this country, Wall Street, etc. They talk facts & provide sources. They are not just 'rah-rah Obama" programs at all, and it shouldn't matter if you're republican, libertarian or democrat if you are more interested in what's really been going on, rather than just a lot of hot heads twisting everything in ways they can lay blame on Obama just because he's a democrat.
But to each, his own I guess. I find the history interesting - and there's far more detailed info about the bailouts, wall street, etc. than I've seen on any tv news show.

Spot on starling02....Thom Hartmann's show is excellent. Always something to learn from his shows

(gasp!) Technically, he's an independent. But he describes himself as a democratic socialist. Nothing wrong with that. He's a pretty good guy, and the voters of Vermont elected him twice

Pink Slip

Nothing wrong with socialism?

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

What do Chinese human rights violations have to do with anything?

I hope you understand the difference between democratic socialism vs. socialism vs. communism vs. human rights violations

Pink Slip

The difference is whether they have majority power or not...when they do...the result is allways human rights violations...

You even unconsiously make the same argument:

democratic socialism vs. socialism vs. communism vs. human rights violations

The first inevitably leads to the last...only a matter of time..

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

I see...how about some examples?

Pink Slip

How about a list of socialist/communist countries that DONT engage in human rights violations...

Here is the list.

Wow...long list.

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

Nice cop out. But democratic socialism is different from socialism, and both are different than communism. I encourage you to learn the difference.

Pink Slip

National socialism.

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

Yeah, that's something different too.

Pink Slip

Fire hose
Fire truck
Fire house

All completly different...yet all relating to a comming thing...fire..

Democrat socialists
Socialists
national socialists

All complelely different things....yet all relating to a common thing.....state control

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

Still waiting for real examples...

Pink Slip

Oh boy...you sure got me there...

yeah...I got no example....I made it all up...

there is no china...no cuba...no venezuala ....no russia....no vietnam.....no north korea...

No communists...no socialists...

Communists and socialists didnt kill millions of people through tyrannical rule....

And these are not the droids you are looking for...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

Simply naming countries does not prove how democratic socialism leads to communism and human rights violations, like you claimed. None of the countries you have named ever practiced democratic socialism. FAIL.

Pink Slip

Air America = Liberal
FoxNews/Limbaugh = Republican

Big difference…
