to talk radio! At least in the afternoons when Dan’s not on. OMG, the village idiot, Pat Gray, filled in for him today. Luckily I was in the Beast and listening to Sirius for the most part but I usually flip over just to see what is happening.
Today, the village idiot not only featured a diatribe about a month old story on Elvira Arellano (repeated yesterday on that bastion of intellectual integrity, World Net Daily) but actually said this: not all illegals crossing the border are destitute and poor.
Really? Wow, the middle class of Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador are now risking their lives and paying thousands of dollars to coyotes to pick vegetables and pick up trash? Total freaking moron.
More and more, I think it is an ownership issue when it comes to programming, at least based on listening to Pat Gray, Chris Baker and Michael Berry. No, we don’t need the Fairness Doctrine, we need people to take risks and sell entertainment.
On Sirius, I can tune in to Michael Reagan or, woe is me, Ed Schultz, a liberal but not a whacko, in the same time frame. He’s funny and entertaining, even though his positions on political issues are wrong. I guarantee you I could (me personally) outsell the reps for the three idiots above in 90 days. Think how much easier it would be to outsell them if you were pushing someone with a 10th grade vocabulary and a conservative viewpoint. All I can say is that those three must work cheap.
Oh, yeah. Forgot something. Ed Schultz is against the Fairness doctrine too.
Wow, after posting this, I double clicked on Schultz’s name and the answers.com info come up. Very cool! Not only was he a quarterback, but he’s been in some sparring matches with other libs.

I think Dan Patrick made a huge mistake hiring Pat Gray, it seems the quality of the callers has slipped drastically.

I agree about Pat Gray. I am outside sales and count on Edd to keep me informed. Pat is annoying. He is rude, snide, and doesnt offer information. I’ve found 1070 talk radio and listen there now, too. It’s not local tho. I am so disappointed they hired Pat. I am just a listener, not a caller, but I wouldnt call with Pat there. He can be so rude.
