4-21-17 Nicole Sandler Show – Cannabis, Earth Day & the News

  Tomorrow's Earth Day, and yesterday was 4/20. It's time to party! First, we celebrated the ouster of Bill O'Reilly with a call to Angelo Carusone. Angelo is currently the president of Media Matters, but when I first met him almost a decade ago, he was a law school student tweeting under the @StopBeck handle, letting advertisers know just who they were supporting. His efforts got Beck booted off of Fox so-called-news. He's since graduated law school and run a number of similar campaigns.

We talked about the heinous blowhard that is Rush Limbaugh and why his sponsors are pulling out like a Catholic man who doesn't believe in birth control. You can check out more of what Angelo's doing over at Media Matters at DropFox! As she does every Tuesday morning, GottaLaff took some [...]

Drop Fox- Game On!

One of the biggest problems Democrats has faced during the past two years has been their lack of messaging skills. Making it more difficult is the mighty megaphone of the Republican party -- their propaganda arm that calls itself a News organization.  The fact is that "Fox News" is actually a fake news channel.  As they're a cable channel, they're not regulated by the FCC, and there are no consequences for Making Shit Up®. Unfortunately, the relatively small number of people who watch their fabricated facts® don't understand that their only source for "news" is most definitely NOT NEWS. Enter [...]
