Jay Thomas' show is primarily an entertainment show, and he rarely discusses politics. NPR appeals to liberals, but it is primarily a news channel. The difference is that it try very hard to represents all sides of an issue, whereas Fox News just tells you they do (incessantly, just to make sure all their loyal listeners are sufficiently brainwashed). I would suggest you read actual news sources (like daily newspapers) and see how reliable you think Fox News is. I do occasionally listen to Fox News for the comedic value, since their reporting is so often inaccurate and flat-out stupid. I will point again to the study which shows Fox News viewers are the least knowledgeable of all news consumers.
Blah, Blah, Blah, whatever.

Did you listen to Jay today, seems like he was talking politics today and he is a left winger all the way.

Default Here's an idea

Here's a simple idea to get two left channels...

All times Eastern.

Channel A - all SIRIUS people

9:00am-Noon Alex Bennett
Noon-3:00pm Lynn Samuels
3:00pm-6:00pm Need Host (Richard Bey?)
6:00pm-9:00pm Young Turks
Replays
9:00pm-Midnight Alex Bennett
Midnight-3:00am Lynn Samuels
3:00am-6:00am Need Host (Richard Bey?)
6:00am-9:00am Young Turks

Channel B - Syndicates

6:00am-9:00am Bill Press
9:00am-Noon Stephanie Miller
Noon-3:00pm Thom Hartmann
3:00pm-6:00pm Ed Shultz
Replays
6:00pm-9:00pm Bill Press
9:00pm-10:00pm Stephanie Miller
10:00pm-1:00am Alan Colmes --- *LIVE*
1:00am-3:00am Thom Hartmann
3:00am-6:00am Ed Shultz

That does cut out the WSJ report, but it is also on the right channel at 5am.

Everything would be live when available. And a replay for those who can't listen live.

If SIRIUS had to have a FOX News radio channel (it hurts to type that), Alan Colmes would go to that and fill in his spot with the cut replay hours of Steph and Thom.

Pretty easy, hire an afternoon host, get Lynn on one more hour and there you have it, two channels, one home grown, the other syndicated.

I don't see why Sirius can't give us a Union show too since Sirius Patriot has an NRA show which is uniquely Right Wing or usually Right, same with Unions except for the Left and Middle.

Were there such a show, I'd take a listen. I don't think its a matter of what Sirius wants to give us, I think its all about availability of good content.

Take a listen to Gun Talk! Union members like my Dad listen there.

Around here on the Community radio station we have a show called "Heartland Labor Forum" that I think Sirius could get fairly cheaply and it would be an easy way to fill space. Personally also I'd like a late night show. Seriously why do the Conservatives talkers get a late night one and we don't?

well now it looks like alan's leaving again.. if anyone knows any details, such as what rerun will be taking his place, feel free to post...

by the way alan says if you want him to stay to call sirius and let them know. the fact they tried to take his show off when he was still under contract probably doesn't fare to well in hope of him sticking around.

They could also replay Michelangelo Signorile on a Left channel. His show is almost all politics but I can never listen to him because of the time slot.

It's probably impossible, but I'd love to hear Keith Olbermann on SIRIUS.

BTW, I haven't read any mention of Lying ----suckers on SIRIUS Stars. It's hilarious! But Mojo Nixon is more libertarian than left.

Default Back to Alan

I think Alan Colmes is great. I have been listening to him for over 10 years on one chanel or another. He said the other night that he has no control over the contract and that he wants to stay on Sirius but Fox is doing something with XM and that might end the Sirius deal. I called Sirius to complain but they are clueless and said there is no way to complain by phone. I will try email but I doubt it will do any good. Any other ideas on how to get through to Sirius?

I would (and will) write to his website directly and tell him about what Sirius said to you. Maybe he knows another way to get ahold of them. Good luck. I will post here if/when he replies.

You've been corrected on this so many times it's getting tedious. How pathetic that you have to keep chirping debunked talking point instead of think for yourself. Do you even have THE SLIGHTEST FRICKIN' CLUE who hosts these shows you so glibly trash? You obviously don't even listen to them.

NPR bends over backwards to accomodate thick-headed wingnutz like yourself and have MORE THAN A 2-TO-1 (close to "3:1") documented record of inviting RIGHTWING CONSERVATIVE COMMENTATORS on to discuss whatever the issue of the day is.

But, heck ... don't let the facts get in the way of good slogan.

And by the way ... even if by some fantastic leap of logic you could lump NPR (and Stars???? WTF????????????????? God, you're a moron!!) with TalkLeft, then *I* get to lump FAUX, ABC, TRUCKERS, PATRIOT with TalkRight.


The fact is that TalkLeft has EXACTLY *1* solid show (Hartman), a couple passable shows (Ed Shulz, Turks, Miller). That's pretty much it.

The rest of that channel is stolen by hosts that SIRIUS is trying to pimp: Lynn "stfu, you whiney byatch" Samuels, poseurs and pseudo-liberals like Alan Colmes and Alex Bennett (along with that long-time liberal bastion ... WSJ Report).


Getting rid of Sean Hannity's butt monkey is a nice start, but we're still getting shafted.

For your information I listen to NPR, Sirius Stars and AAR on XM.

The fact that you can have a debate without name calling tells us all we need to know about you. Perhaps you should learn to use your words.

Default Alan Colmes is O.K.

First of all let me state I am a liberal

Yes, he won't appeal to many liberals, just as Ed Schultz doesn't, but if ideas are going to be exchanged these are the people who will express them best to the other side.

Just as most liberal won't listen to Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, most conservatives will not listen to Mike Malloy

My point is there are liberals and conservative talk that appeal to their base, and their is liberal and conservative talk that trys to appeal to both sides

A few months back I left Sirius for XM because the didn't replace AAR with more compelling progressive talk. Will I come back, perhaps if things change I will go back to Sirius, but I would also continue with XM

XM right now gives me the best of both words, I have AAR in full, and in January 2006, it will stream it uninterrupted like Sirius used to. I also have Ed Schultz on its own seperate stream and in January Alan Colmes will go to Fox talk on XM.

Sirius is putting most of their resources into Stern, who isn't my particular cup of tea.
