4. You're right about that...
However, you think he'd have a little more tact, eh?

9. Well, if you were at work...
and you had hundreds of people harassing you for something you had nothing to do with, wouldn't YOU be a bit pissed off?

I say lay off him. He's a good guy, and he's just doing his job.

Or do people have the right to call you at work and give you shit?

3. If I don't get the candidate I like in 08, I'm not voting
or I am voting Green.


That line of thinking sound familiar?

21. BINGO! We have a winner!
I have noted earlier that this is the same loser attitude that we have seen around here before. There are way too many people willing to LOSE rather than compromise or say in a weird inversion: "not a loaf at all is better than half a loaf."

30. Too many people willing to settle.
and have their lives chipped away bit by bit.


Sorry, I don't settle.

If AAR wants to position itself as The Convenient Truth" and only address things which won't ruffle feathers they no longer speak for me --and I won't listen to them.

Do I think they should be driven out of business for not being a true progressive voice?

Darn freakin' tootin'



Enjoy your half a loaf of bread. They'll keep halfing it till you are left with a tiny stale crumb.

8. I will still listen to AAR.
But I loved Malloy. My evenings won't be the same.

Sam is my favorite, though.

12. I volunteered at a radio station where one of the hosts was fired, and
both employees and volunteers were told not to discuss personnel matters with listeners. I was instructed that if a listener called and asked what had happened to that announcer, I was simply to say that he was no longer with the station. If they asked why, I was supposed to refer them to the station manager. (I happen to know that that announcer was NOT fired for his opinions, and that's all I'll say.)

So I'm cutting Peter Werbe some slack on this one. He and everyone else at AAR is probably under orders not to discuss personnel matters.

14. This could be some sort of legal issue as well
I've worked in the radio business, and know that there's certain subjects that can't be discussed to the public. Just like most jobs.

Why should he burn his bridges? I'm sure Mike understands all of this.

I say cut Pete some slack. He didn't fire him.

15. So AAR is censoring it's listeners now.
Just Lovely.

That's what Limbaugh does, and no it's not okay.

19. AAR has contempt for its listeners
And there aren't that many of us! You would think they would want to at least keep what they've got, but evidently not. The whole group of them still with AAR should just let their callers say what they want even if they don't comment. What's AAR going to do- fire them all?

I don't like this censorship of callers.

20. Can I quote you a year from now
When AAR is still alive and well?

What is it with DU tonight. I have heard for two years now from the right about the imminent failure of AAR and now DU is crawling with people willing to make that happen.

25. If I wanted to read a bunch of posts predicting the imminent demise
of AAR, I'd just go to some of the Freeper/wingnut-dominated sites I visit regularly for non-political issues...

31. AAR might be alive 1 year from now.
But at this rate it won't be well.

this isn't the right target.

24. Peter is ok
But he's dull. Not what I want to hear at this hour of the night. I'll miss AAR, it's dead to me at this point. They are Alan Colmes type losers. Franken lets his freeper pal walk all over him and lets other rightwingers on all the time. Springer is a phoney. Randi is ok. Seder is good but I think he's next. They just aren't enough to keep me listening after this kick in the butt.
Chalk it up as an experiment that failed.

28. Malloy
My wife and I came with Malloy and we leave with Malloy.  He
was super entertaining in the company of dullness.  Why is it
that progressives always shoot themselves in the foot. bye bye
Air America,  so sad!

29. That is your first post?
LOL. Why not post this at the AAR website? There has to be a contact form there somewhere.

P.S. Reading the boards tonight, you will fit in well here. Welcome.

33. Think about the fucked postion AAR put Werbe in, please. He's a good guy.

I'm SUPER PISSED about Malloy benig fired, but please, use your god damned brains. I've been here raging all day abuot AAR for firnig Mike, but this is not the way to do it. Leave Werbe out of it.

Do you realize the place AAR put Werbe in, doing this to him?

He is supposed to fill in for his friend, Mike, for a week while Mike fills in for Randy. Then on the 2nd day of teh week they fire Mike and leave Werbe there in the spotlight.

Don't freak out on Werbe. Freak out on the AAR suits that put him in the middle of this fucked up situation
