I haven't read Newsweek in years so can't quite say what their political leanings are but they're still owned by the left-leaning Washington Post Company (and perhaps tow the line for them)... DePetro (and Roger Hedgecock, filling in for Rush) said that it falls in line with liberal media bias.

>>Umm, I find that hard to believe.  I've known Alter for a long time and like most reporters at Newsweek, he is very embarrassed and upset by what happened.  Taking things out of context and then ranting about them may make for a good talk show, but let's not take a bad situation and make it even worse.

Yes but DePetro said he had heard that (probably said it, in part,
to discredit the I-man/his guests) and whether or not it's true,
I don't know. Talk hosts listening to _other_ stations? Horrors! :)
(Though Howie has admitted that when he drives home he "listens to
the rock station on FM, the one that carries the other Howard..."

No banners. No pop-ups. No kidding.
