1. Hell yes.
He would be all over this like a cheap suit. I wished he would get hired somewhere.

3. I was just thinking about him a few minutes ago
He would have shredded.

Can you imagine what he would have done with Rummy on this one?

I miss him too.

4. Me too. Every time I hear the news I wonder what he would have
say about it. I just hope we will be able to hear him again some day soon.

6. I really don't know why AAR won't give him a spot.
Would add nice balance. Make it 10 PM or so, that's 8 here. I'm not a TV watcher any more.

He would have sliced and diced Rummy, Condi, Abizaid, Sanchez,Bush, Cheney, the contracting companies all up and served them on a neat little platter.

12. Air America is messing up IMHO.
It's nice they hired Randi Rhodes and all that but they really need to get people like Guy James, Mike Malloy, Ed Schultz, Mike Webb. They should not have to rely on simply celebrities.

20. Maybe another petition would be the thing to do...
now that AAR is up and running! They must understand that Malloy will be an ASSET...NOT A LIABILITY! Hey AAR...either get your heads outta your ass...or get a glass bellybutton so you can see out! WAKE UP!!!!

10. This might have pushed Mike over the edge...
Edited on Thu May-06-04 08:48 PM by DAGDA56
...it is a confirmation of his worst fears...I think it may have taken him days to get over the initial shock at the crimes, and at having been so accurate about these bastards...ultimatly, he would have been devastated then devastating.

11. It's bad enough that the right silences progressive voices.
That liberals do it too is unconscionable.

14. I think the media is scared of Malloy.
Many people think he is probably too confrontational. But that's what we need. We need somebody with a fire in the belly. The right wing have their wackos spitting their vitriol, why not the left side?

18. I'd like to see Malloy and Carville team up...
or maybe even Bernie Ward! What DYNAMITE THAT would bring to our side!

21. I have thought about Mike
and his reactions to all of this stuff that has been going on. Torturegate, attacking John Kerry on his military record - the pathetic news conference and on and on and on - I miss him SO MUCH

I don't think he is anymore "out there" than Randi Rhodes and Mike is a lot less full of himself than Randi is. I can't for the life of me understand why Air America won't give him a slot - I want him back NOW!!!!!

22. We should all mass e-mail...
Air America...call Al Franken and ask what he can do! They need to realize that Mike has an extremely strong and supportive fan base...and some of us don't appreciate being let down by the very people we thought would save him! :mad:

26. Malloy's views on Israel / Palestine are incompatible
with what Air America wants. Both Franken and Randi Rhodes don't have respect for the palestinian plight.

Just a guess, from the wise cracks I have heard from them.

24. The whole planet NEEDS MIKE MALLOY!
Air America Radio has a nicely varied bunch of hosts - different folks have different tastes - but without Mike Malloy it's a bit drab.

The shows I've heard all make a contribution. The hosts and guests and callers do good work and speak to and for us all here, but Mike and Kathy are just brilliant in the way they cut straight through the right wing flak tossed out by flaky corporate flacks.

Adding Mike Malloy after Majority Report would be a very PR smart move by the programming team. The Scaife-Murdoch-Coors-Moon-etc. funded shills would scream and scream, and the more hysterical their rants about Mike's truth-telling, the more listeners AAR would get.

And, of course, "I NEED MY MIKE MALLOY!"

25. Guaranteed...
Mike on prime time radio in the evening would severely damage the television industry! As it is, I rarely turn my tv on...a practice I developed when Mike would come on at 9. Now it's a habit...still in front of the computer at 9 waiting...hoping...

27. Damn I miss listening to him!
And yes he would. He'd be calling Rumsfeld a RAT BASTARD.
