Randi Rhodes needs a TV Talk Show
Edited on Sat Oct-08-05 01:09 PM by Armstead
Her peformance on CSpan should prove to TeeVee executives that if they really want confrontational TV, a real hard-core liberal can turn up the heat.

Can you imagine her against Sean Hannity and those otehr wingnuts?

She'd wipe the floor with them.

Get on TV more Randi.

2. She would be great on the tv,
and she's got the clout to bring some heavy gurests.

5. Maybe now she'll stop
with the "no, I'm not tee-vee material..." bullshyte.

You're a STAR Randi!! Get thee on the damn tee-vee!! :bounce:

7. I'd settle for a camera stuck in an AAR studio during primetime
Edited on Sat Oct-08-05 01:20 PM by rocknation
like Howard Stern or Franken on the Sundance Channel. If I had a nickel for every time I thought THAT, I'd be able to do it!

9. Yeah me too
About time we got a real tv analogue for full-time liberal broadcasts, since Fox "News" is pumping out GOP b.s. 24 hours a day.

AAR-TV, please? Santa? I know it's two months early, but come on...

;)

17. YES!
I would LOVE that. I remember just before the election last November, C-SPAN did that and I got to hear Lynn Cullen from PA that way. She made me weep when she said how thirsty we all were for voices that said outloud what was in our heads... voices that spoke what we thought. It was quite powerful.

Randi ... get yourself to a tv producer right away!

12. Yep. She'd be great if she had her own tv show.
But I wonder if she doesn't want it?

13. At least she should be a TV guest more often
Can you picture her up against Ann Coulter?

19. I think she'd do more Cspan gigs if she were asked
If enough of us tell her how much she rocked today, she might change her mind about television.

It seems like, from listening to her, its the MSM news show formats (ala "Hardnuts", er "Hardball") that she doesn't like appearing on 'cause Tweety et al won't allow her the time to talk.

Randi LOVES the 'span and I think she'd do this kind of television again in a heartbeat.

14. I think that she made a boo-boo in not answering
the caller's question about education.

24. It was a ridiculously broad question.
Edited on Sat Oct-08-05 01:37 PM by Eric J in MN
paraphrase: Tell us your views of education. Also your views of illegal immigration.

I wouldn't answer such a broad question.

15. She doesn't want to do shout TV.
What we saw this morning was just a taste of what would be on Hannity or O'Reilly. Nothing really gets said and no one really wins their point. I want information and there is nothing informative with that format.

Now if they gave her an hour out of her radio show everyday with a few callers in, I would go for that, but I can't see any of the big three (CNN, MSNBC or FOX) giving her any airtime to say what she wants to talk about.

21. How about a show like tucker carlsons?
Where he always gets the last word and can put the reicht wing spin on every issue without being forced to scream over someone to do it?

26. Perhaps, maybe even before or after Carlson, to be
"fair and balanced", but they wouldn't do it. If they did then they would keep trying to tell her what to do, like they did with Greta Van Susteren. I used to like Greta's show on CNN and when she went over to Fox, they boxed her in with the murdered or missing pretty white girl du jour instead of a broader range of legal matters in the news like the DeLay indictments and the Fitzpatrick investigation, which she should be doing.

16. I would certainly tune in!
She would be absolutely great and it would get the facts out there much more broadly to the public which is badly needed!

22. I think she is a Natural for TV!!! I just had a thought... maybe we can
do a letter writing campaign to Bill Maher to have her on his panel. More tv exposure might convince her about how Great she looks and how much her voice/face is needed!

23.  I just wrote "Independent World Television"
suggesting that Randi Rhodes be an on-air personality.

It's a channel planned for 2007:

25. I am all for that...BUT.....
Randi needs to calm down a little.
She tries to out shout people she doesn't agree with.

Now that I said it PLEASE DON'T FLAME ME. I love Randi.
She is the most knowledgeable, and the most truthful.

I just feel that if she was on TV her screaming would take away from her credibility with the rw that tune in. And we must get the rw to listen to her.

I know O'loofah screams as does Hannity.
But they are well established in what they do.
Randi on tv would be a newcomer.

Then again, I tribute the success of AAR to her.
