Re: Missouri Cans right to work

First line in the article: On Tuesday, Missouri voters trounced a right-to-work law pushed by CEOs, corporations and radical right-wingers intent on killing collective bargaining Wow Huffington Post, why don't you tell us how you REALLY feel about this. As to the issue, I have a very negative person...

Re: Hundreds of newspapers unite to attack Trump

I don't think anybody's "upset" by this. Also, the idea that the Trump presidency in any way, shape, or form threatens the existence of a free press is poppycock. btw - remember how some people in here got their panties in a wad when Sinclair made the TV stations it owns all read from the same scrip...

Hundreds of newspapers unite to attack Trump

These media outlets are getting a little too self-important for their own good. https://www.cnn.com/2018/08/16/politics/newspaper-editorials-trump-list/index.html Here is just a sampling from one of the articles.

WIOG at 86,000 watts

Just something I've wondered before - I see that 102.5 WIOG broadcasts with 86,000 watts. Is this an unusual power output? It is the only FM station I've seen that broadcasts more than 50k watts but less than 100k. Is there a reason they don't broadcast at a full 100k?

Re: Spring Nielsen numbers for radio

How well does WKQI 95.5 get into Flint? That 1.7 is quite impressive considering that it is nearly half of WRCL's numbers and over a third of WWCK's.

I would certainly hope no one is holding the prior admin, or major-party candidates up as examples for security protocol.

Re: Gretchen Whitmer

I have a simple solution to this that I think both sides could agree with. Keep the electoral college. Keep the 538 electors. But instead of winner-take-all for each state (yes I know there's already a few exceptions), assign electoral votes as follows: Each state gets 2 electoral votes (winner-tak...

Re: Gretchen Whitmer

Something to think about, in the future 17 states can decide who will run or ruin the country. The Electoral College is a thing of the past. IF CA had the same rate of electoral votes that Wyoming has (1 per 570k voters, 3 total) then CA would have 217 votes. Since there is a limit to the total and...

Re: Alex Jones booted from video platforms

At a certain point though being a nut isn’t cute anymore... Fair enough, but he had a sizable following and certainly had to be bringing in decent revenue to the platforms on which he aired. This has to be a net financial loss for the platforms because I'm not aware of any boycott efforts against a...

Re: Shri! What happened?

Based purely on his commercials, Shri seemed like a likable guy.

Given his very poor showing, just goes to show that advertising on TV isn't worth what it was even 10 or 15 years ago.

I think Alex Jones is a nutcase. That said, this move reeks of a coordinated censorship effort. I'm not for silencing anyone.

Re: Why the media is so bent on taking down Trump

Question is, bmw - will YOUR ego allow YOU to admit you’ve been utterly conned for years by the mentally ill, racist, divisive, dangerous-to-our-democracy con artist who squeaked into the white house with the help of his KGB boss man, Vlad-the-Invader. You and the rest of the Trump sheep. Conned? I...

Re: Why the media is so bent on taking down Trump

A really lame video with over 2 million views and a 97% like rating. As I said, that was just a small sampling.

The point is that a major adversary is attempting to undermine the democracy and divide society in order to weaken us... that’s bad and your ideology shouldn’t play into that at all.

Here's another one today: Multiple people were arrested in Berkeley, Calif., on Sunday as two rallies — a right-wing “No to Marxism” rally and a “Stop the Hate” counterprotest — clashed. Notice the absence of "left-wing" to describe the counter-protest group while still calling the other group a "ri...
