1. Why pay for satellite radio if you have to hear ads
especially ads for a POS like orally.

2. I think that there is great irony here that BillO is paying so we
can hear Mike Malloy.

4. So..............

Whats the problem, I think it's great.

1) O'Reilly buys time on the Mike Malloy radio show, this helps him stay on the air and he uses right-wing money to do it.

2) Nobody who listens to Malloy is ever going to watch O'Reilly no matter how much money he spends buying ad time, so it's a total waste of money.

So where is the down side?

5. Malloy should just tell everyone how great Keith Olbermann's show is
after the O'Reilly ad runs.

He could just casually work it into the conversation. ;)

6. Sirius inserts the ads
during the scheduled breaks in the talk radio programming. I bet that unless Mike was told about the ads that played during his show, he wouldn't even know that there was an Ad for BillO on the channel. They do it all the time on all the political talk channels.



They promote their other shows, and make a little money for the ads from the other sponsors.

7. Also On MSNBC
They are aired just before KO. It helps to pay the bills.
