We caught "Brownie," as Bush called him, on the air saying he doesn't want "stupid people" to vote, because they're "more likely than not to vote for a Democrat."

What Would Buck's Conscience Do To Women?

Given how desired women are by political campaigns in Colorado, it's astonishing that Buck is already doing what he did during the last election. That is, trying to say abortion doesn't matter; no one cares about it.

Goodbye Peter Boyles

What happened to the man who long ago did such an honorable and intelligent job hosting Channel 12's Colorado Inside Out? How did he end up having the respect of the paranoid right-wing and few others?

Right-Wing Talk-Radio Host Suggests High-Tech Gun as Immigration Reform

It's sad to see this kind of image on Boyles' website -- sad for him, and sad for undocumented people who will feel the hate.

Reporters should get clarification from Coffman about his personhood views, and you'd expect him to be just as eager to clarify today as he was three years ago.

When Brownie Tells Us to Vote for Romney, What Will Sirota Say?

On their new show, called the Rundown, will Michael Brown be telling listeners to vote for Romney, while David Sirota says both candidates are, as Ralph Nader liked to say, tweedle dee and tweedle dum?

You Never Ducked Us, Congressman, but What About the Rest of the Media?

Jason Salzman | Posted 08.29.2012 | Denver
Jason Salzman

Mike Coffman thinks he's being unfairly targeted for his birther comments. As if it's unfair for journalists to simply want to talk to him about it? What's a reporter to do when he will only take questions from conservative talk-radio hosts?

I'm goning to miss the Caplis and Silverman show a lot, and Denver is definitely worse off for its departure from the airwaves.

CO Senate Candidate Says Obama Should've Been Scratched From Georgia Ballot

Consparicists take great pleasure in each other. The more everyone else thinks they're crazy, the closer their shared beliefs make them feel to one another. That's why talk radio is such a beautiful medium for conspiracists.

Should This Blogger Stop Writing About CO Secretary of State's Misinformation and Innuendo?

Jason Salzman | Posted 06.16.2012 | Denver
Jason Salzman

What about our basic trust in government, which rests to some degree on faith in elections? How seriously should take it, or should we ignore it, when our Secretary of State is on the radio making accusations of very recent election fraud?

If you're a talk-radio host and you feed on infotainment, you pretty much have to cover the topics people will talk about because you want people to... talk. But that doesn't mean you have to embrace bigots.

Romney apparently isn't making himself available to real journalists in Colorado, in advance of Tuesday's GOP caucus, but he called into conservative talk-radio shows across the state Friday, where he found a copacetic environment.

Callers and Guests Sorely Missed at "Battle of Talk Show Hosts" event

Jason Salzman | Posted 12.13.2011 | Denver
Jason Salzman

You'd expect to get plenty of meaninglessness from a two-hour event featuring 10 yappers skilled at yapping. How could a panel of 10 normal people converse intelligently in such a setting, much less 10 talk-radio hosts?

Fear and Fraud in Denver Elections

Dan Caplis and Craig Silverman listened in silence Wednesday as Scott Gessler made the startling assertion that "Denver itself admitted" that sending election ballots to inactive voters has resulted in a "pretty high incidence of fraud."

CO Reporters, Who've Essentially Ignored Buck's Abortion Stance, Should Follow Lead of Talk-Radio Host

Jason Salzman | Posted 05.25.2011 | Denver
Jason Salzman

It's fair to say that Senate candidate Ken Buck's opposition to abortion, even in the case of rape and incest, is newsworthy, maybe not font-page material, but deserving of serious treatment.
