Re: Herald's Dean Johnson on new 1150 talker

I would bet that Don Feder would describe himself as "very conservative."
Having read him for years and listened to his shows on the radio, I would
describe him as an ultraconservative. Former 950 AM host Chuck Morse labeled
himself a "right wing extremist" on his Web site, which I thought was a bit
much but he doesn't seem to mind.
As much as some people think Terry Gross is an "ultraliberal," she isn't. Is
she a social liberal? Sure. But on corporate issues, she fell in line with
the Clintonites which was basically the same as the Republicans.
