Conservative talk show featuring the cream of the local blogging crop – including bloggers that’ve brought down two governments (Jean Chretien and Dan Rather) not only goes on the air, but lasts nearly four years (and counting, knock wood), kicks ratings ass, and draws 20,000 podcast downloads a week?
The Strib’s never heard of us.
Put a one-hour show promoting atheism on Sunday mornings on an also-ran “liberal” station that’s been circling the drain since it went on the air?
The Strib is right there.
Sorta like the time the Today show did a five minute interview (“The left’s answer to Rush Limbaugh!”) with Fast Eddie Schultz, when he had a “network” of six stations, five of them in markets like Lisbon, North Dakota.
(“Hahahahaha! Mitch is jealous!” No, not a bit. The Northern Alliance rips on the Strib pretty consistently, and indeed has held an “Unsubscribe-athon”; it’s fair to say our audience isn’t reading it very much. They really don’t matter. Just wondering about their news judgement, given the rather lopsided impacts of the various shows involved. Just saying).
