Talk Radio Sank Amnesty Bill !!!

Posted by Thunder Pig on August 20, 2007

Opposition from key talk radio and cable TV hosts helped kill the
immigration bill in Congress, a study out today concludes. “What listeners of the conservative talk radio media were hearing, in large part, was that the legislation itself was little more than an ‘amnesty bill’ for illegal immigrants, a phrase loaded with political baggage,” it says. The study by the nonpartisan Project for Excellence in Journalism quantifies what White House and Capitol Hill phone lines and e-mail inboxes already indicated: Talk radio focused on the immigration debate more intensely than the mainstream media did from April to June. Conservative hosts touched off a brushfire in the Republican base that President Bush and other party leaders were helpless to contain.

Hillary’s Prayer

Posted by Thunder Pig on August 20, 2007

I heard a portion of Claire Jeffrie, Senior Editor of Mother Jones, on C-SPAN Radio on XM132 during their replay of the Sunday Morning Talk Shows. One of the topics was an article written for Mother Jones called “Hillary’s Prayer,” which concerned Senator Clinton’s membership in a tight-knit group of Congress Critters called “The Fellowship.”

I fired up my computer, went online, and did some quick research. The article is apparently not available online yet, although a Kos Kid was helpful enough to offer a review of the article, [Snapshot] and express their fear that was generated by the article because Joe Lieberman, Tom Delay, and John Ashcroft were all members of the same group at one time or another.

Of course, this is not the first time The Fellowship has been in the news, and one of the Kids was helpful enough to provide a copy of an article in Atlantic Magazine.

I get a kick at the Kos Kidz, at how everything is a conspiracy!
