Oh ... my ... God!
So I'm surfing the Web early this morning checkin' out news sites and - spring - I get this pop-up while checking out NewsMax: ["The Ann Coulter Talking Doll"]. You too can get your own bitchy, complaining, oppressive talking doll which spouts off such lines as "Why not go to war just for oil? We need oil. What do Hollywood celebrities imagine fuels their private jets? How do they think their cocaine is delivered to them?" And just in time for Christmas!

More on liberal radio network
Here is a story from the NYT about the liberal radio group acquiring five radio stations: ["Liberal Radio Group Says It Is Close to Acquiring 5 Stations"]. This story says they are close to buying a Boston radio station. However, I know of none currently on the market. In fact, most of the AM or FM stations with decent signals are all owned by the big media corporations. The only stations that would be left in the market are some very small AM stations that are overpriced due to the consolidation of all the bigger stations. Right now, most of the stations are overvalued and not worth the money these big corporations paid for them. Will Greater Media sell WTKK, Boston's only commercial FM talker? There were some rumors that ad revs were down at the station. Will Langer Broadcasting or Mega Communications sell one of their tiny AM stations? The latter is probably more likely. However, I hope that this investment group isn't stupid enough to pay tens of millions of dollars for some dinky AM station.
