NEW YORK- Radio talk show host Laura Ingraham is off the air - at least temporarily. She said Tuesday that she´s leaving her distributor, Talk Radio Network, after more than nine years because her contract is up. Ingraham said she is in discussions with other distributors about her show, which currently airs on 325 stations nationally. Talkers magazine says the conservative Ingraham is the most-listened to woman on radio, with an estimated 5.75 million listeners a week. Talkers said that ranks her among the top eight radio hosts overall.
I was a loyal listener for years but I stopped listening about a year ago when I finally could not endure her saying – “You’re listening to the Laura Ingraham Show.” – every fourteen seconds. Okay, I exaggerate. But, roughly seven or eight times per hour was not at all unusual. If she were to omit that annoying, repetitive, unnecessary (Duh! I KNOW what I’m listening to!) verbal crutch-like tic, I’d probably reinstate my audience membership.
Laura, in the words of your pal, TV Factor Boy, “Wise up!”
I subscribe to Laura´s show and get her thru the internet. Today had Tammy Bruce on. No word about Laura today. Michael Savage just recently changed distributor and was off-air around 5-6 weeks if I remember correctly.
I listen on the internet. So I look up the list and pick a few near by (mas o meno). I thought it would be great if CBS would hire her for the Evening news. Let her be editor too. And romney should have cleaned house and made her his director. Should have paid her what she wanted. He can afford it and he´d be moving into the WH. But I wish that she would stop saying that this person or that is a great person when they are really horrible. Sheneeds to move out of the area to get some perspective...
Ms. Laura should, like Sean Hannity, have her show broadcasted on both radio and television. She is that good!.......Here´s a suggestion Roger: (A) Reassign the Levittown, Long Island Leprechaun to a different time slot and (B) Give the the brilliant attractive Ms. Ingraham the prime time hours of 8-9 PM EST. You will be glad, not sad, you did!
When every other radio station is now carrying Geraldo Geraldo Geraldo, and the image of Ann Coulter frenching Chris Christie won´t go away, I give up, plain give up. The game is truly rigged. I won´t go Gault, but I am going to buy a hand gun.
Have always enjoyed Laura´s show and hope she is not off the air for long. She´s funny, wickedly sharp whether interviewing butt monkeys or analyzing the actions of libs and conservatives alike. Hurry up and sign a new deal with a better distributor, Laura!
used to get Rush, Rusty Humphreys, then Mark Levin on long time talk station in Atlanta. tuned in one day to hear Spanish speaking music station. Rusty moved down here, hope he´s found another radio home. Rush is now on WSB but can´t find the Great One anywhere. Are we being slowly sabotaged??
Go Beck! - Laura, go somewhere you can speak the untrammeled truth, Fox is dying from sameness of analysts,round tablers, and liberal over saturation - Lou Dobbs and Greta are still worth watching-they at least allow the courtesy of letting their guests speak more than one sentence without bozo type interruptions. The Five are quite entertaining almost the answer to the View - why not invite an audience to the Five?
Why do u people get on here and blast Oreilly. The man gives to wounded warriors. His gear money goes to. Charity. His books are superb and he gives both sides of every issue. Tell me what liberal does that?
I too loved her, didn´t listen to her much anymore anyway. Got tired of when she was hacking one of her books. That´s all you heard every other sentence. Everything she said or her guest related somehow to her new book. Got tiring . But I hope she is back soon.
Did her contract really end or did she get dumped by the network? I´ve found her hard to listen to for months. She´s shrill and harsh and her constant dumping on Romney was enfuriating. Her constant whining about Romney refusing to come on her show got me hooting with laughter. Why should he when all she did was criticize everything he did?
President Obama says his personal management style isn´t a problem: "Part of what we need to do is reorganize the government, which was designed primarily in 1935-45. We could consolidate agencies," he told "Hardball" host Chris Matthews Thursday in an interview conducted at American University in Washington. Matthews, an Obama fan, told the president that problems with the rollout of Obamacare suggest he does not have a "strong top-down authority system." "What is your system for management?" Matthews asked the president. (Video) "Well, first of all, I think it´s important to distinguish between this particular project -- this health care project,
With anti-tax Republicans in control of the House, it’s a little odd that The Washington Post would devote a story on Thursday to liberal Democrat Earl Blumenauer’s proposal to raise the federal gas tax by 15 cents a gallon. It was stranger that reporter Ashley Halsey III seemed ordered to produce a Blumenauer press release, quoting absolutely no opposition to such a tax hike, instead quoting tax-hike backers like AAA and unions. No one seemed to ask whether the nation´s infrastructure was supposed to get a boost from Obama´s "stimulus." With Congress facing a major shortfall in transportation funding next
WASHINGTON – A fourth straight month of solid hiring cut the U.S. unemployment rate to a five-year low of 7 percent in November, an encouraging sign for the economy. The Labor Department says employers added 203,000 jobs, nearly matching October´s revised gain of 200,000. The job gains helped lower the unemployment rate from 7.3 percent in October. The strengthening job market is likely to fuel speculation that the Federal Reserve may start to scale back its bond purchases when it meets later this month. The economy has now generated an average of 204,000 jobs from August through November. That´s up
Either President Obama needs a new speechwriter, or he needs a new set of economic policies. Actually, he needs both. Can anyone think of a more boring, banal, irrelevant, or stale speech than the one he gave this Thursday in Washington DC? The speech was allegedly on the economy, but more likely it was to divert attention from the Obamacare catastrophe. Whatever the motive, his idea that the defining challenge of our time is to reduce income inequality is completely wrong. In truth, the defining challenge is to restore more rapid economic growth, create substantially more jobs, and significantly reduce
President Obama on Thursday said that Republicans should be “embarrassed” that they have not done more on Capitol Hill, blaming them for Washington gridlock. “They´ve got to be embarrassed,” the president said in an interview on MSNBC’s "Hardball with Chris Matthews." “Because the truth of the matter is that they´ve now been in charge of the House of Representatives, one branch of, or one chamber in one branch of government, for a couple of years now and they just don´t have a lot to show for it.” Obama said that congressional Republicans were too fearful of offending their conservative base to
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
On Thursday, in the aftermath of South African iconic leader Nelson Mandela’s death at age 95, President Obama’s White House account tweeted a tribute to Mandela – a picture of Obama in Mandela’s Robben Island prison cell, along with a quote from Obama about Mandela: (Photo/Tweet) Even in paying tribute to a historic figure, President Obama couldn’t help but make it about him.
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter.
