The Internet's dark world of bizarre online media programs and bunker-crazy talk-radio hosts has probably cost gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez the governor's office.

The Trouble With Trolleys

Listening the other day to BBC Radio 4, I caught the end of one The Philosopher's Arms. The subject was trolley ethics. My hope was that a big problem with the best-known example of this philosophical discipline would be explored. Sadly, though, it was left undiscussed.

The ideal way to implement change is to wait for Congress to change the laws. The most efficient way for an American citizen to make their anger felt is by boycotting Walgreens.

Going Going Gone

Sam Greenfield

A few years ago, Rush Limbaugh was so powerful a force in talk radio that when a Republican crossed him, that person would feel compelled to come on Limbaugh's and apologize in the most sniveling obsequious manner. The theory seemed to be: Insult Limbaugh, lose an election.

A Thin Margin for Error

Erin Warhol

Our foremothers didn't blaze the trail so that I could become a stressed-out, harried, working mom, speeding her way through life, putting herself and others in danger. That humbling truth landed with a sting. My margin for error was too tight. I was not thriving, I was barely surviving.

Alan Colmes

Democrats Ed Markey of Massachusetts and Hakeem Jeffreys of New York want to clamp down on what can be said on radio under the rubric of "hate speech," and it's a terrible idea. Government should stay as far away from broadcast content as possible.

A Jewish Voice on Arabic Radio

Joseph Braude | Posted 05.06.2014 | Religion
Joseph Braude

More than three years after the broadcast debuted, my Muslim audience now finds it ordinary, rather than aberrant, to hear a Jewish voice opine on Arab affairs in their mother tongue. In numerous Arab countries, such a situation would be revolutionary--but in Morocco, it's merely one step forward among many.

Korean Voices Make Waves on Arabic Radio

Joseph Braude

It is clear that under the shade of America's security umbrella in the Middle East, Koreans have been making strong inroads. Are there ways in which the United States, as a partner of Korea, might seek to benefit from those inroads, whether on the ground or over the airwaves?

The Young and Restless (in Radio)

Gary Villablanca Duff | Posted 01.23.2014 | Media

I often wonder when listening to radio, why there aren't more talk show hosts in their teens and twenties? Because I am young, I've realized age has become as much a barrier in an industry that's marginally a lot more seasoned.

A Denver Theater Company's Inpired Production of "Talk Radio"

Jason Salzman | Posted 01.23.2014 | Denver

Talk radio is also a place where people find a community of like-minded voices who validate each other's beliefs, whereas in the real world, off the airwaves, in the mainstream media, they often fall into the lunatic-fringe category.

The Need for Talk Radio Beyond Table Talk

Lori Sokol | Posted 11.05.2013 | Media
Lori Sokol

As a long-time writer, but a much more recent radio talk show host, I have found that there are simply some things that are spontaneously said aloud that, if given more time, would not only never have been said, but certainly never written down.

Please, my fellow conservatives, take the high ground. Be aware that people who don't agree with you are listening, too. Don't just punish. Persuade. And remember that Dr. King believed in the American Dream, too.

How Liberals Have It Wrong About Rush and Sean

Alan Colmes | Posted 09.29.2013 | Media

Seeing liberal bloggers declare victory about how a boycott of these shows' sponsors led to this makes my hair stand on end for four reasons. First, that's not at all what happened, as these shows will land elsewhere.
