    It was apparently all very sudden: MIKE MALLOY FIRED BY AIR AMERICA RADIO:

    MIKE MALLOY FIRED BY AIR AMERICA RADIO

    There will be no Mike Malloy program today - or any day - on Air America Radio as we have been terminated. We are told its a financial decision.

    We are as shocked as you are, especially since as recently as last Tuesday we were told we had the go-ahead to announce our return to NY airwaves and that our contract was "on the way."
    ...
    More details to follow as we hear them ourselves.

      I stopped listening to his tiresome rants after he told a Republican to "open up his wrists".

        Because we can't stand our own who speak truth to power. Malloy may fly a bit off the handle at times, but we need people like him. We can't all be reasonable little NPR commentators. We need someone with some fire.

          to win our country back.

          Just as long as we don't turn into what we hate. So far, so good. I have yet to see anything on the left that could compare with the hatred and mis/disinformation so easily found on the right.

        •  Stream Bernie Ward of S.F.'s KGO AM. (2+ / 0-)

          This is who I listen to instead. Not only does he speak truth to power, he loves to dissect illogical thinking and I find him to be an enjoyable and passionate personality. He's on from 10:00 pm to 1:00 am pacific time. KGO will archive a show online as well for the next 24 hours.

          Here is a video clip from Crooks and Liars a couple months ago of Bernie's smackdown of some wingnut named Chris Baker. Baker can't take the heat, gets up, and leaves.

          I think most progressives, Malloy listeners and otherwise, will like him. While Ward mostly focuses on politics, he also ventures into religion - he's something of a renegade Catholic - and other random stuff he just comes up with to inquire of listeners. But all of this keeps his show fresh. He just seems to get better over the years.
