Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please - Mark Twain

[COMMENT]Just a suggestion, you might want to leave your TV and Radio off for a couple days because you are about to be bombarded with BS. The President is going on all the networks to sell his....what ever the hell it is....trying to make himself look good and save his legacy, he does not want to bomb Syria. Even Hillary will be out there, god help us. The house will vote this Syria thing down and then it will all go away and back to gun control or such crap. I knew from day one that the President wasn't going to do anything. He doesn't like the military in the first place and hated any and all action in the middle east in the last decade, why would he do anything at all? It's a head fake and I'm not buying it at all. And I'm sure not going to listen to him all over the media and then hear every talk show known to mankind play clips of the President all day. It says volumes that the President would go on a media blitz and be arrogant enough to think that people are gonna stop what they are doing and listen to him ahhh....ummmm....ahhh. I mean seriously. Editing what you hear in media might just save your life and your sanity.

[RADIO]Great interview with [Arsenio Hall] on NPR Weekend Edition Sunday the day before his return to TV
Arsenio Hall Returns To Late Night
The Arsenio Hall Show ran from 1989-1994 and featured Muhammad Ali to Madonna to President Clinton blowing his sax. It was the younger, hipper version of late night talk shows. Host Rachel Martin speaks with Arsenio Hall, whose new show debuts Sept. 9.

The fight might be on for [Art Bell] and [George Noory] only a week away from Art'a new show debut on the 16th. Last week on Coast George had a guest on, John David Oats, that accused Art of being a pedophile back in 1999. Art filed a $60 million dollar lawsuit against him and a guy named Stephens. Art posted the court document on his website. Not sure what the ruling by the court was, but obviously Art did not lose the case. It would have been all over the media and frankly this whole thing sounds like a ransom for cash or something. Oats moved back to Australia after this too. I find it really odd and wrong that George Noory would have this guy on. I heard the show and it was a little strange sounding, and Oats sounded a little rattled or uncomfortable. Oats was only on for an hour, and it sounded rushed. Art posted this Saturday: Last night Coast did the most shameful thing since George has been in that seat, I am just sad for them. Here is the lawsuit for all to read:

Phil Hulett

[Phil Hulett] (From KFWB fame) is doing a really good sounding podcast called Phil Hulett and Friends from some studio in San Pedro. Quality of the sound is top shelf and he's doing the show with [Jennifer Bjorklund], Jay Campadonio, Karlo Sy Su. Great opening music, they talk about the news and what's happening in the world. Very tightly produced show with drops and fast moving. Very impressive, and entertaining.

Check it out.
Jennifer Bjorklund

Saturday night [Mark Levin] was at the Reagan Library. I actually missed the speech he gave. I saw about ten minutes of him taking questions at the end and then he was given a cowboy hat at the end by the Library. Mark put it on, obviously too small said "This hat is for a normal sized head".

Also on NPR is [Billy Crystal].
Billy Crystal's 'Foolin',' Full Of Fun — And Feeling. 9 1/2 minutes
Talks about his new book Still Foolin' 'Em, Where I've Been, Where I'm Going,
and Where the Hell Are My Keys?

Great article on what really going on with AM Radio

[Glenn Beck] Wants to Know: Why Can’t We All Just Get Along?
The nightly news is doing a fine job of putting itself out of business. Who watches it? I mean really, besides my grandparents, who are both dead, who is watching the nightly news? I think we’ll be ready to put them out of business in the next three to five years.

From Radio Ink
More evidence for the radio industry that a permanent spot on the cellphone is vital. According to a new report by comScore and Jumptap, over half the time we spend online is done through a mobile device. Of the 51% of online time spent mobile, nearly 40% of it is done on a smartphone, 12% on a tablet. Time spent mobile has nearly doubled, going from 4,500 minutes in 2010 to nearly 9,000 minutes in 2013. 18-24 year olds have increased their monthly smartphone usage the most, jumping 40% in less than one year. According to the report, women 25-49, are most likely to be mobile-only users. Men men 25-49 are the biggest cross-platform users (74%). And, this number, may be the most important to radio. 77% of music streaming is now done off the smartphone.

[PARTING SHOT]If people in the media cannot decide whether they are in the business of reporting news or manufacturing propaganda, it is all the more important that the public understand that difference, and choose their news sources accordingly. - [Thomas Sowell]
