Conservative talk radio host fires Cumulus.
As reported by Inside Music Media, after months of bitter negotiations, Sean Hannity, the #2 rated radio host, has rejected an offer to extend his contract. In essence, Hannity beat Cumulus CEO Lew Dickey to the punch and gave his a taste of his own medicine. Hannity fired Cumulus. It is also being reported that sources close to Hannity feels Cumulus treats its employees “like dirt…sub-human.” Rumors have it that Michael Savage will replace Hannity for afternoon drive time. Pardon the laughter, oh yea, that’s going to work. This is only half of the story. The liberals foaming at the mouth that Hannity, and Rush, were going to be silenced could not be more wrong.
Johnny Paycheck – ‘Take this Job and Shove It’
In the end as the Daily Caller reports, Hannity told Cumulus to ‘Take this Job and Shove It’.
But as NewsBusters reports, that Michael Savage could replace Hannity. More importantly they are reporting that the LIBS have got the entire Hannity being fired from radio 100% wrong. Sean Hannity is not going to be silenced from the radio waves. BOT EVEN CLOSE. According to Del Colliano, Clear Channel is “100% behind Hannity and will replace 80% of the Cumulus stations as soon as the current deal is up.”
Sean Hannity, the popular conservative radio and TV talk show host, turns down a recent Cumulus offer to renew his contract to continue aitring [sic] his show on 40 of their stations.
And now Lew “Trickey” Dickey has apparently seized the low road again.
He allowed Michael “I hope you get AIDS and die, you pig” Savage to go on Cumulus stations and predict that he – the 71-year-old talker – will replace Hannity in afternoon drive. [...]
Sources close to the situation who wish to remain anonymous in my witness protection program say it’s the other way around.
I have known for weeks that the opposite is true.
More from NewsBusters on the Libs getting it wrong again. SM had stated earlier as negotiations were going on between Rush and Hannity with Cumulus that LIBS best be careful. don’t ask fro things they might just come true. Sorry LIBS, this is not the worst thing that could happen to Hannity … it was the best thing for the #2
Just how wrong were liberal media members on this?
According to Del Colliano, Clear Channel is “100% behind Hannity and will replace 80% of the Cumulus stations as soon as the current deal is up.”
This will allow Hannity to stay on 500-plus stations carried through Premiere.
For the record, sources close to Hannity told me Friday that Del Colliano’s gotten it 100 percent correct. Another prominent, independent source also confirmed this moments ago.
This also squares nicely with what Alan Colmes predicted back in July.
Much more interesting thoughts as to what is the driving force behind this breakup at The American Spectator.
Could MSNBC become any more of a joke? Looks like the Magic 8 Ball says … signs point to yes.
As reported by Mediaite, Alec Baldwin is going to host a prime time show on the MSNBC cable news channel. According to Mediaite, Bladwin will not be replacing any of the stellar prime time news talent that MSNBC as assembled, but instead will replace the Lockup prison documentary series that airs Friday evenings. Are you kidding, that is actually the only show worth watching on the pathetic network. It would appear that MSNBC is neither confirming or denying the rumor.
Is the only reason why anyone would watch this to see if he has a melt down on live TV? But alas there is no way they would allow such a show to be taped live.
War on woman? Take a good look what MSNBC thinks should host a show on their network … Alec Baldwin calls his 12 year old daughter a “rude, thoughtless little pig.”
Mediaite has learned from a senior source in the cable news industry with knowledge of MSNBC’s programming that actor Alec Baldwin is getting his own weekly show in MSNBC’s primetime lineup.
According to our source, the so far untitled show will air Fridays at 10 p.m. ET and will feature a large dose of Baldwin’s outspoken liberal politics.
The gig would make sense, considering Baldwin’s long history with the NBC family. He starred on the network’s award-winning sitcom 30 Rock for seven years, has frequently hosted Saturday Night Live, and hosted the network’s American airing of 2007?s Live Earth concert. Most important, Baldwin’s fiercely liberal and often combative political views make sense for a network that has become the place for progressive viewpoints on cable.
Twitchy is a flutter with some great tweets regarding Alec Baldwin to MSNBC. How comical, pathetic and telling is it that FOX News puts an intelligent, aspiring and up and coming female talent like Megyn Kelly to prime time on their network and MSNBC puts a tired, old cranky, child hating, gay bashing lunatic white man like Alec Baldwin on theirs? Really, is this how far this cable network has fallen? I am going to go out on a limb and say it will not be too long before Lock Up is back on Friday’s.
Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin.com could not have stated it any better, “If the story is true, it’s another desperate attempt by MSNBC to make Al Sharpton look like the rational one”. Amen brother!
White Maryland Man Beaten & Robbed by Three Black Men in Racially Motivated Hate Crime Attack Who Yelled …“This Is For Trayvon!”
Just curious, had George Zimmerman been found guilty, would “White” Hispanics been assaulting blacks in revenge attacks yelling, This is for George?
The vigilante Trayvon Martin mob was at it again this weekend. A Bethesda, Maryland white man was beaten and robbed by three black men. The 28 year old white man was attacked in the 1700 block of Euclid Street, Northwest, in Adams Morgan in an obvious racially motivated, bias, hate crime. The three thugs yelled “This is for Trayvon” as they beat and kicked the man. Who really thinks that these thugs watched or have any concept of the evidence presented during the George Zimmerman murder trial?
A note to Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, President Obama, Eric Holder, the New Black Panther Party, the NAACP, blacks, the MSM and Democrats … This is what a hate crime looks like where some one’s Civil Rights are violated!!!
A Bethesda man was beaten and robbed early Saturday morning in Adams Morgan by three men who yelled, “This is for Trayvon Martin,” before attacking him, police said.
The incident is being investigated as a hate crime and robbery, according to D.C. police spokesman Araz Alali.
Three black men approached an adult white male from behind while he was walking in the 1700 block of Euclid Street NW at 1:26 a.m. Saturday, police said.
Two of the men threw the victim to the ground and kicked him, Alali said. The three perpetrators then took the victim’s iPhone and wallet and fled.
NBC – Washington: The victim suffered lacerations to the face from the attack. Police said the suspects took the man’s wallet and iPhone. The police report lists the incident as robbery force violence, hate bias incident.
But this is what happens when you have an irresponsible MSM, President, Attorney General, faux Civil Rights agitators and Democrat party who insight the crowd and continue demands for justice. I hope Barack Obama and Eric Holder are happy with themselves as stated at NRO, where they “deliberately stoking resentment and tension, under the guise of leading a “national conversation” about race.”
Former NBA great Charles Barkley was 100% correct, when he said there are a lot of black racists as well.
Just curious, where is the outrage from the Civil Rights agitators over a white man getting the hell kicked out of him for revenge of the George Zimmerman not guilty verdict? Where is President calling for calm after he and Eric Holder threw gasoline on the racial fire?
Uber-Lib Bill Maher Booed for Tasteless George Zimmerman Jokes & Florida on CBS ‘Late Show’ with David Letterman … “I say if he [Zimmerman] gets a gun, Casey Anthony gets a baby.”
Wow, when the audience at the lefty CBS ‘Late Show’ with David Letterman boo an uber-lib, you know you have a problem.
Last night in the ‘Late Show’ with David Letterman, far left comedian Bill Maher was booed for offering up some completely tasteless jokes regarding George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who was just found “not guilty” of murder or manslaughter in the death of Trayvon Martin, and the state of Florida. When Letterman has stated that Maher was a minority owner of the NY Mets, Maher followed up with, “Better than being a minority in Florida.” Then the boos came. But not to be out done, Maher then said, “You know they want to give George Zimmerman a gun now. The Florida state law is that he can get his gun back. I say if he gets a gun, Casey Anthony gets a baby.” Cassey Anthony was the Florida tot mom who got away with the murder and was found not guilty in the death of her two year old daughter Caylee Anthony who was found less than a mile away from her home discarded in the woods. Guess what then happened at the Letterman show, the boos came again and even louder. The sad part is Maher actually had to ask why they were booing. How bad were these tasteless jokes and how far LEFT has Bill Maher gone, even the crowd at the far-Left David Letterman show did not approve.
Who would have ever thought the death of a 17 year old teen and the murder of a 2 year old child wasn’t funny?
Right after Maher was introduced by David Letterman, the host mentioned that he was a minority owner of the New York Mets.
“Better than being a minority in Florida,” responded Maher to boos from the studio audience.
“Why are they booing?” he asked.
A bit later, Maher said, “You know they want to give George Zimmerman a gun now. The Florida state law is that he can get his gun back. I say if he gets a gun, Casey Anthony gets a baby.”
This was quickly met with groans from the studio audience.
“What is with the booing tonight?” Maher asked.
Keith Olbermann, The worst hire in the world …
The NY Daily News is reporting that Keith Olbermannn may be returning to ESPN. Olbermann worked at ESPN from from 1992 to 1997 and has expressed recently wanting to return. Are you kidding? Obviously the suits at ESPN have forgot what an obnoxious nuisance and PITA that Olbermann was when he first worked there. Hey ESPN, have you forgot when Olbermann referred to ESPN’s Bristol, CT headquarters as a “godforsaken place?” Some how this lib is a sought after talent after being ousted from MSNBC and Current TV, Really? I think this tells us more of the direction of ESPN that it does Olbermann. Seriously, why would a network supposed to be about sports hire a liberal moonbat? Count me on the list of watching alternative sports networks if this is the direction that ESPN plans to go.
So this is ESPN’s response to Fox’s August launch of Fox Sports 1?
The Daily News has learned the Worldwide Leader is in serious discussions with Olbermann to host a New York-based late night talk show on ESPN2, according to industry sources. The sources said the situation was still “very fluid” and no decision on green-lighting Olbermann or the project had been made.
If the move is made, it could blunt the buzz Fox hopes to generate with its August launch of Fox Sports 1.
This could be the first shot in an all-sports cable TV war. The sources added that ESPN is also considering unleashing a multimillion-dollar “SportsCenter” advertising campaign/counterattack that would air around the launch of FS1.
Still, the timing of an Olbermann hire would be strange. Last month, Turner Sports hired him to host its Major League Baseball postseason studio show on TBS.
So this is what ESPN thinks is going to restore their viewership, after so many other networks, including NBC and FOX creating competition with sports networks? They have been raiding ESPN’s talent of late in an effort to challenge ESPN for market share. It just goes to show you though that TV exec’s have to be among so of the most stupid individuals alive. Who on early would rehire such a malcontent like Olbermann and some one who is so polarizing with his liberalism. Why would anyone hire some one where automatically 1/2 of America would not watch. ESPN boss John Skipper and the rest of the suits might be the “worst person in the world”.
UPDATE I: Hire Olbermann, but this was the same network who chastised PGA golfer Paul Azinger who criticized President Obama for playing to much golf? And felt the need to apologize for long time sports announcer Brent Musberger’s comments about Miss Alabama Katherine Webb during BCS Champ broadcast … “You quarterbacks, you get all the good looking women. What a beautiful woman… Whoa!” Yet they will hire and walking-talking lighting rod for ignorant and inflammatory comments?
Students at the University of Colorado – Boulder Sign “Thank You” Card to IRS for Targeting Conservative and Tea Party Groups
What happened to my country?
It is actually frightening that the following occurred in the United States and on a college campus to boot. Individuals actually signed a “Thank You” card to the IRS, thanking them fare targeting, harassing and slow walking the non-profit applications of Conservative and Tea Party groups. This was the brain child of Conservative pundit Caleb Bonham who said, “I was kind of hoping people would look at my card and laugh, but not endorse it.” “That was not the case.” One student said while signing the card, “I love discrimination.” WTF!!! Seriously, would this individuals
like love discrimination if they were the ones targeted? Oh, that would be different of course. And who in the hell loves discrimination of any kind? So let’s get this straight, those who signed and agreed with this thank you card agree that Big Government should have the power to destroy anyone who does not agree with them? Is that what this ignoramuses actually think? Of course not because they think they should be afforded a double standard. Maybe the next question should have been if they had ever heard of the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights?
Students at the University of Colorado – Boulder (UCB) signed an enormous thank you card to the Internal Revenue Service for its apparent harassment of conservative groups during the lead-up to President Obama’s reelection.
In the viral video, posted on YouTube Tuesday, conservative pundit Caleb Bonham asked students to sign the large card that read “Thank you IRS! Tea Party Deserves it!”
“I’m asking people if they want to sign my board thanking the IRS for targeting conservative tea party and religious organizations,” Bonham explained in the video.
Sadly, this is a result of the brainwashing that today’s youth has received and a completely hateful attitude and disrespect of others. Some how they are to be afforded the rights of “Freedom of Speech” but others are not. BTW, for all those who signed the ‘Thank You” card to the IRS … thanks for your names so that when the GOP is back in power, they can have the IRS target you. According to you, its perfectly AOK.
BTW II: How are those job prospects for all of you so-intelligent college grads these days?
UNBELIEVABLE … MSNBC Host Melissa Harris-Perry Compares Gitmo Terrorist Inmates to American Slaves, HUH?
Liberalism really is a mental disease …
MSLSD MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry actually compared the GITMO terrorist inmates to American slaves. Wow, just wow. What is wrong with this network? Not only does the race baiting continue for the Far Left, but the foolish and ignorant comment was a complete insult to anyone who was a slave in America and their memories. Can you imagine if some one on Fox News made such a comment? Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the NAACP would be calling for a boycott and their firing. So let’s under stand the mentality of the LEFT toward former slaves in America. The LEFT is comparing radical Islamist Jihadists whose sworn oath to Allah is to kill Americans and our way of life and “infidels” who has a different belief from them, who are being detained in GITMO, to black slaves who were bought and sold into slavery and brought to America against their will. Seriously? I’m sorry, I get the two confused all the time, NOT!
All blacks in America should be wringing the phones and hammering the emails of MSNBC in their collective outrage of comparing slaves to terrorist.
From The Weekly Standard:
“This is the time to reaffirm our Americanness,” said Harris-Perry. “I also appreciate that the hunger strikers are not trying to die. They’re trying to generate autonomy in the context of something that strips their humanity–something we certainly know about from the experience of American slavery. And that the language of before I would be a slave, I’d be buried in my grave and go home to my Lord and be free. Just that idea of creating human freedom within the context of horrible human conditions.”
GOP Senatorial Candidate Gabriel Gomez Calls Democrat Opponent Rep. Ed Markey “Pond Scum” After Being Compared to Osama Bin Laden
Massachusetts US Senate Race: With all due respect to pond scum …
Massachusetts Republican Senate candidate Gabriel Gomez called opponent Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA) “pond scum” during a recent interview. Gomez did so in a response to a question regarding a dirty and disgusting ad where his opponent Ed Markey compared Gomez, a former Navy SEAL, to Osama bin Laden in an internet video that placed their images side-by-side. As Gomez stated during his interview, maybe Markey does doe realize that it was Navy Seals who actually killed Bin Laden? The internet video is truly reprehensible. For Markey to put out his first video comparing Gomez to Bin Laden, because Gomez was critical of President Obama because they released so much classified information on the Navy Seals regarding the raid that killed Bin Laden that puts the troops in harms way.
“I don’t think there’s anything more offensive,” Gomez said. “You know I’ve got four young kids,
and they gotta sit there and gotta see an ad with their dad — who served honorably,
talk to anybody I served with — whether as a pilot or as a SEAL, anybody I worked with.
And for him to be as dirty and low, pond scum, like to put me up next to bin Laden,
he’s just gotta be called what he is. It’s that simple.”
Gomez went on to say, Congressman Markey has been around for 40 years, he know what he is doing. Hmm, I thought we honored Navy Seals who defend America’s freedoms and liberties. Guess not when it comes to Massachusetts liberal Ed Markey. Is this what we need in the US Senate? Funny how Barack Obama used the death of Bin Laden and the heroic efforts of our US Navy Seals for his political advantage and his photo-op of Obama in the “Situation Room” yet Obama was no where to be found when the Benghazi Consulate was being attacked by terrorists, Ambassador Stevens was missing and they were begging for help.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Has Lost that Barack Obama ‘Thrill Up His Leg’ … “What Part of the Presidency does Obama Like?”
Wow, President Barack Obama is in deep trouble when MSNBC’s Chris Matthews has lost the “thrill up his leg.”
The scandals are even getting to Barack Obama’s biggest cheerleader, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews. With the Obama Administration facing three scandals at once, Benghazi-gate, the IRS targeting Conservatives scandal and the secretly recording of AP phone records, has made Matthews question what part of the presidency does Obama like. It would appear that even Chris Matthews have become frustrated and disenchanted with Obama. That is saying a lot. Even liberals are seeing that either this president is disengaged or lying through his teeth. Every time a scandal arises Obama acts like the first time he has heard about it was n a news report. How is that possible that a president does not know what is going on in his administration? Has Matthews ‘Lost that Luvin Feeling’? It would seem that even Matthews is wondering whether Obama is en “epic failure”. The mental health professions best get ready because many Democrats, Liberals and Progressives are going to be headed off to therapy as they realize that Obama is not “The One” they had been waiting for.
“What part of the presidency does Obama like? He doesn’t like dealing with other politicians — that means his own cabinet, that means members of the congress, either party. He doesn’t particularly like the press…. He likes to write the speeches, likes to rewrite what Favreau and the others wrote for the first draft,” Matthews said.
“So what part does he like? He likes going on the road, campaigning, visiting businesses like he does every couple days somewhere in Ohio or somewhere,” Matthews continued. “But what part does he like? He doesn’t like lobbying for the bills he cares about. He doesn’t like selling to the press. He doesn’t like giving orders or giving somebody the power to give orders. He doesn’t seem to like being an executive.”
Weasel Zippers makes a great point … Did Chris Matthews just criticize Barack “The One” Obama? Does that now make Matthews a racist? According to Chris Matthews past comments it certainly does.

Wow, Far-Left Bill Maher Calls Out Liberal Guest on HBO’s “Real Time” … Comparing Violence Of Islam To Christianity Is “Liberal Bullshit” (VIDEO)
OK folks, either Hell just froze over or its the sign of the apocalypse … I just agreed with Bill Maher 100%.
On Friday night, and it was not April Fools Day, during HBO’s ‘Real Time’ with Bill Maher, the uber-lib host told his guest that comparing Islamic violence to Christianity is “liberal bullsh*t.” WOW, did Maher just have a moment of lucidity? Recently Maher had made that comment that if liberals keep it up, they will lose him, referring the over taxation of anyone successful, and now this. Maher called out CSU-San Bernardino professor Brian Levin’s, director of the Center for Study of Hate and Extremism, comment that religious extremism was the same whether it was Islam or Christianity as the liberal bullsh*t for what it was. I have called out Bill Maher on many things; however, I have to give him credit on this one.
The debate between the two liberals was really quite remarkable and needs to be seen to be believed, see video below. Its about time some one on the Left have called Islamists and radical Islam for what it really is, a retaliatory, violent region that if you dare speak, write or think bad about Allah or Mohammed, death will come to you. Just ask Theo Van Gogh, oh that’s right, you cannot, he was brutally murdered. Listen to how uncomfortable the audience is with Maher’s comments. The befuddled director of the Center for Study of Hate and Extremism tried to equate all religions having hypocrites to all religions being violent. Bill Maher then peppered the liberal professor with the following, “there is only one faith who kills you or wants to kill you if you draw a bad cartoon of the prophet”. There is only one faith that kills you or wants to kill you if you renounce the faith.” Then, because the Maher actually dared take the position he did, the liberal professor implied Maher was an Islamophobe. The irony of this is that the dear professor slinging slurs at a liberal who does not agree with him is the director of the Center for Study of Hate and Extremism. Who’s the hypocrite?
Maher then through out the zinger to which his audience must have thought that they were at a taping of Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck … “all religions are not created equal. Maher asked whether the professor had seen the show, ‘The Book of Mormon’ and asked whether they could have made one called the ‘Book of Islam’? Maher then said, there is only one religion that threatens violence and then carries it out. OUCH! Professor Brian Levin said that Broadway could do the Book of Islam, to which Maher responded, tell me what color is the sky is in your world”. DOUBLE OUCH!
But Maher took issue with that claim, calling it “liberal bullshit” and said there was no comparison.
“You know what, yeah, yeah,” Maher said. “You know what — that’s liberal bullshit right there … they’re not as dangerous. I mean there’s only one faith, for example, that kills you or wants to kill you if you draw a bad cartoon of the prophet. There’s only one faith that kills you or wants to kill you if you renounce the faith. An ex-Muslim is a very dangerous thing. Talk to Salman Rushdie after the show about Christian versus Islam. So you know, I’m just saying let’s keep it real.”
“I am not an Islamophobe,” Maher replied. “I am a truth lover. All religious are not alike. As many people have pointed out — ‘The Book of Mormon,’ did you see the show? … OK, can you imagine if they did ‘The Book of Islam?’ Could they do that? There’s only one religion that threatens violence and carries it out for things like that. Could they do “The Book of Islam” on Broadway?”
Levin said “possibly so,” to which Maher seem dismiss his entire argument going forward.
The liberal professor was just perplexed that uber-lib Bill Maher had an opposing view point to his. After all, liberals are not supposed to disagree with other liberals. They are supposed to have one monolithic viewpoint against the Right. He even went as far to imply Maher was an Islamophobe and there lies the liberal playbook. If they disagree with you, demonize them, even if its one of your own. Imagine what they do to those on the Right? Finally. Maher completed Game, Set and Match when he stated the following, “Obviously, most Muslim people are not terrorists, but ask most Muslim people in the world that if you insult the prophet, do you have what’s coming to you. It’s more than a fringe element.” It is simply amazing and this professor is typical of most on the Left, they cannot understand that telling the truth about a religion and that the behave differently and insight people to violence as a reaction is not hate. IT IS THE FACT! And one note to the dear, misguided professor who could not understand that the topic being discussed was the Islam religion today vs. Christianity during the Middles Ages, there is a like thing called the Reformation.
The Gateway Pundit reminds us, that in 2011 Bill Maher told Muslim Rep. Keith Ellison the Koran is a “hate-filled holy book.”
