Big Dan's Big News April 1, 2010

Mission: Accomplished - WILK's only left-leaning reality-based voice terminated right after winning award!

Notice how appropriate the collage below is that I made a while ago? WILK is now a completely rightwing channel after getting rid of their ONLY left-leaning host Kevin Lynn. So, if you want to hear a bunch of rightwing KOOKS and callers all day long, tune in to WILK. Time for me to get XM radio again. They'll probably sell it as "Kevin was abrasive". Yes, rightwingers think it's "abrasive" when someone challenges them and they aren't given an unchallenged forum. Rightwingers think "news" they don't like is "liberal news". So tune into WILK's KOOKY callers and politicians like Lou Barletta, Frank Scavo, Dave Madeira, Pat Toomey, Rick Santorum, Tom Marino, and callers that recite Bible verses, birthers, and the whole whacky rightwing gang. They won the WILK war against left leaning voices and now ran the complete programming table entirely rightwing. I will now completely turn off WILK and here's hoping someone starts up a competing left-leaning AM channel to compete and hopefully put out of business Entercom's WILK rightwing radio featuring Rush Limbaugh, Mike Savage, Sue Henry, and fake liberal Steve Corbett. Steve Corbett, the self-proclaimed liberal, is beyond a doubt a Republican "plant". He spends his entire show attacking only Democrats, he has only Republicans on his show, conservative callers, he voted for McCain/Palin, calls Rush Limbaugh "my brother Rush", pushes the Tea Party...what makes you think he's liberal? Do you hear how chummy and giggly he gets with his Republican guests and conservative callers and how he never asks them any tough questions and agrees with them? Pretty strange for a liberal, isn't it? You might even say this: THESE ARE ALL THE CHARACTERISTICS OF SOMEONE WHO IS A REPUBLICAN! "Even I'M a liberal, and I'm voting for Sarah Palin! You Democrats and liberals should, too!" If you entertain any thoughts of him being a liberal, it's only because he continually TELLS YOU he's liberal. That's why he keeps saying it. That's why he has to keep saying it. No one else says it. It's like the corporate-owned media calling themselves liberal. If Steve Corbett was liberal, he'd be kicked off of WILK like Kevin Lynn. Did you ever hear REAL liberal Carl Romanelli on Corbett's show? There's your proof. It was a good plan for Corbett/WILK to keep calling Corbett a liberal, so when they got rid of the real liberal, they could say, "See? We have a liberal!" I probably won't be commenting much about WILK anymore, as I won't be listening to it anymore. Like I say over and over and over again, corporations OWN the media they want us to think is liberal, and corporations aren't liberal. Don't worry, I'm still holding down the fort here from rightwing propaganda. So, what say YOU about the "liberal media"??? Get your news HERE, if you're not a rightwing KOOK! On TV, get your news from Free Speech TV, LINK-TV, Democracy NOW!, MSNBC's Olbermann/Maddow/Schultz, not FOX "news" or FAKE liberal networks ABC/NBC/CBS/CNN, or get XM radio and listen to "Talk Left". You will only hear ONE point of view on WILK, and that view is from the right. WILK: THE FOX "news" OF NEPA RADIO! That's why their entire lineup goes ballistic whenever reinstating the Fairness Doctrine comes up. They're all in lockstep against varying points of view. Now on the other side of the coin, if you're a KOOKY rightwinger, by all means listen to WILK and watch FOX "news". It's beautiful outside should be outside taking a walk, not listening to the radio!

Good move, Entercom!!!

If you like 4 decades of The Doors, AC/DC, and Led Zeppelin, then you're gonna love this!!! Entercom manager: "Daniels & Webster's" loyal burnt out rock following will follow him over to rightwing talk radio...actually, I have no fucking idea what I'm talking about...we just wanted to get rid of Kevin Lynn because he was the only liberal on our station."

No, seriously, here's his quote and it's just as stupid as the one I made up above: “It’s certainly exciting for us (bd: who's "us"??? do you have a rat in your pocket???),” Ryan Flynn, general manager of WILK’s parent company, Entercom, said. “It was a difficult decision to let Kevin go (bd: especially after he won an award last week...frankly, we let him go because he's the only liberal on the entire channel.), but it’s a high-profile type of move (bd: How?) that gives us the ability to expand the WILK brand (How? Kevin Lynn winning awards doesn't?) and capitalize on the reputation of John Webster in this market (bd: yeah, the reputation of a washed up rock 'n roll disc jockey whose act got old and who can't use the name "Webster" for recognition and played Led Zeppelin for the last 4 decades...WILL GRAB THE POLITICAL TALK SHOW AUDIENCE! Is this guy spoon feeding us the bullshit, or what? clap...clap...clap...clap...clap...great job! Did you get a bonus for this "brainstorm"?).”

Update: A well thought out plan, Mr. Flynn! Maybe you should be fired?

The "Nancy and Gasper Show" or "Nancy and Swami Salami Show" - Gasper, whose Rock 107 moniker was John Webster as part of the long-running morning show team of Daniels & Webster, said he isn't sure if the clock on the six-month non-compete clause he had with the Times-Shamrock Communications radio station began when his contract ended last year or if it began with his departure Tuesday. There could be a number of issues, including whether Gasper can take with him the characters he played on Rock 107, such as "Walter Nepasky" and "Swami Salami." Additionally, a question exists as to whether Gasper can use the name "Webster," which was created by Rock 107 more than 25 years ago.

GOP operative Caroline Hunter: NOT on WILK
Caroline Hunter's confirmation to the Election Assistance Commission in February 2007 came near the end of the agency's controversial handling of two internally contentious commissioned studies -- one on voter fraud and the other on voter identification laws. Pressure to fill the four-member bipartisan commission was high: the election season was heating up. Emails released to Congress about the two studies, reviewed by Raw Story, reveal that Hunter's selection was not only well-timed but also succeeded in installing an ideologically partisan insider on the commission. Hunter's confirmation by unanimous consent in the Senate occurred without a hearing or even a roll call vote. Her lack of election administration experience escaped scrutiny, as did her activities at the Republican National Committee and her subsequent stints at the Department of Homeland Security and in a Bush White House staff position as deputy director at the Office of Public Liaison. The latter office reported directly to Karl Rove. But only a handful of election law experts and government watchdog groups raised questions at the time. Even those who questioned Hunter's nomination knew little about her.
