FOX covered it of course but to score political points and not simply discuss the facts.
What tiny bit of coverage I caught today seemed fair. Both Jessee Waters and Mike Huckabee said innocent until proven guilty.

Re: January Radio Ratings

The Bounce is slowly sinking. Which is a shame because I actually kinda like at least some of what they're playing - their playlist seems very heavily focused on the late 90s and early 2000s.

And here I thought these networks supported the "me too" movement.

NEW YORK — A former aide to Gov.

Re: The end of a pandemic: what if this guy is correct?

As to the question of WHY lockdowns didn't work with this particular pandemic - simple: Covid is HIGHLY contagious. More recent data suggests that it has an R0 value of 5.7 FIVE POINT SEVEN!!!! That is a humongous number. That means that for every person who gets it, they on average give it to 5 or ...

Re: The end of a pandemic: what if this guy is correct?

In hindsight, I don't have a problem with the initial set of lockdowns last March and April so that we could at least get some idea of what this virus was all about and to give enough time to educate the general public about it. Once most of the mass public was generally educated, which IMO was by e...

Works for Casey Kasem on American Top 40.
That is VERY different than a format based on talking about the current events of the day. For me it would be like watching last week's weather forecast or re-watching the Super Bowl. Music, however, is timeless.

Premiere Radio Network has announced that they will be airing mostly "archival" (basically, a best-of) audio for "weeks" during Rush's time slot. Even his hardcore fans will tire of that in a few days; they really need a fill-in host to discuss current topics immediately, otherwise listeners will ab...

For context, your response came 16 days later - very near the end of March. A lot of information came in over those few weeks.

Re: The end of a pandemic: what if this guy is correct?

Oh come on. Look at the date on that prediction. We had VERY limited information at that point in time. Even Dr. Faucci was basically saying the same thing at the time - he said Americans need not worry about the Coronavirus. Yet the left still treats him like a king.

Re: The end of a pandemic: what if this guy is correct?

This is actually all panning out exactly as I predicted 8 or 9 months ago. Actual infection rates are far higher than reported rates, and at the end of the day, we will reach the 70 or 80 percent herd immunity threshold whether we want to or not. It will consist of a combination of already infected ...
