No good news for AAR/WLIB

   By Marion Delgado at 3:49 AM

Maron turned down hosting his third show after 2 cancellations and a coast to coast move and a huge pay cut.

Janeane is leaving Majority Report. Sam says one reason was schudule and monotony.

The new owner of WLIB may kick them out - it's always been tension with the old Caribbean WLIB after midnite anyway

Ratings are still good, but al franken is expected to drift away within a year.

of all the great innovative shows none are left - no morning sedition, no majority report in its original form, no unfiltered.

AAR is still a good source of morning news and people like randi and mike are decent sources of op-eds and news. Sam Seder still has a strong show and thom hartmann is a great syndication find.

The weekend shows are coming on strong, especially radio nation with laura flanders, ring of fire with rfk jr and mike papantonio, and politically direct.

still, things have looked better.

My own personal opinion: much of the fun and purpose of Majority Report was lost in november of 2004. Clearly janeane had a strong feeling of why are we bothering to do this ever since.

Janeane's exuberance about the ability to make a change in such a short time is ridiculous. I now see the memes and facts from the AAR shows showing up in conversations, c-span, and even with some commentators on the fake TV news shows.

I just hope that as the people change they get better fresher faces and not more Springers. At this point it is all about management. I hope they are scouting local shows across the country for the best to replace.

We are winning the hearts and minds of America. And winning the minds is more important than the Repubs ever thought. It just takes time.

Janeane left the show because she was shamelessly promoting the $cientology cult and their dangerous ripoff "detox rundown". She did this 3 times on the show and defiantly refused to admit she was doing anything wrong by shilling for a notorious cult and their ineffective detox treatment.

This is the real reason she left the show. Sam was furious about it.
