Default Alan Colmes and Fox Talk

Is he the only left wing host on the channel? So much for fair and balanced.

Faux news is pure rightwing crap.. Hard to believe that 30% of the population can have 75% of the talk stations available on Sirius.

Alan Colmes is not a real left winger, more of a moderate, and not a strong defender of left wing values. He was hired because on TV he looks rather squirely next to Sean Hannity.

faux is at it again. After admitting to never watching Fox, and admitting to getting all his info from some left banging america hating web sight, he continues to claim to think for himself and to not being rep or dem. Dude, you need couch time. Fox isn't near as faux as you are.

To their credit they do have someone from the left. I'm A conservative but I do like to listen to Alan's show from time to time. I've also heard Susan Estrich fill in for Alan and I admit I like to listen to her.

Just curious who else do you think they should put on the radio to make it more fair and balanced? I don't know where they would put him or her. Maybe they could fill some time in on the weekend.

Colmes was actually a comedian that was selected by Hannity to be his co-anchor. No, seriously, look it up. Hannity wanted somebody that would make him look smart.

Just found this picture on Alan Colmes' official page:



I don't think he came from a comedy club, unless that's code for mental hospital...

You guys are confusing Hannity and Colmes on TV with Alan Colmes OWN talk show. If Fox wants to be Fair and also drop in the polls and then fail, they could put up some more liberal shows.

I like Alan's show and listen to it almost everynight. I don't agree with everything he says but I agree with alot of it. He gets alot of callers that like to screw with him and he's pretty good as putting them in their place. It makes the show pretty entertaining.

They could drop that Fox across America show as I find it horrible and put another person from the left on or they could put someone on the weekends since it's nothing but reruns for the most part.

I like Alan Colmes and Mike Malloy, but I like Lionel the best. He hosts a nightly show in Alan's time slot on 710 WOR in New York and on many Air America affiliates across the country. I like him because he's funny, irreverent and thought-provoking. He has interesting takes on the issues of the day. I've been having to listen to his podcast now because his Cincinnati affiliate got its Air America format dumped by Clear Channel. I wish Sirius could get him but they'd really have nowhere to put him. Oh well. Anyway, I recommend you check out his podcast, it's available here: http://www.wor710.com/pages/46363.ph...ntentId=157579

Almaniac, "Lionel" (Michael LeBron) is a left-leaning independent, and a former defense attorney and prosecutor. His show is very entertaining, and he tackles difficult subjects other than politics quite often, carefully framing his arguments as an attorney would. I don't believe WOR would offer syndication rights to satellite radio for fear of diminishing the value of the show to trad rad affiliates. I also enjoy his show..

Lionel is also on WWKB 1520 in Buffalo, NY, which is not an Air America affiliate, and until recently competed against one. Lionel has been around longer than AA.
