'RKO launches blogger's show on Sun night

And where, exactly, do you get real news on the radio any longer? NPR is
bending over backards to be "unbiased" (Read: Keep Ken Tomlinson from wiping
them out). When WBZ isn't airing Bush propaganda, they are censoring out all
items that don't support the Bush agenda. For mostly rip-and-read news, Air
America's TOH 'casts are not bad, and Rachel Madow's 5:00 AM to 6:00 AM show
is often pretty good, though she is sometimes too far left for me! I guess
that leaves the BBC, which puts me to sleep, and Pacifica, which we can't
get in Boston (at least not over the air), so I don't even know what
Pacifica's news (if there is such) is like.
