Democrat Politician Silences Conservative Talk Radio in Cincinnati

Hamilton County Auditor Dusty Rhodes has put an end to the WBOB mystery. He has announced that he and a partner have leased AM 1160 in Cincinnati to broadcast oldies aimed at listeners over 50.

Rhodes says that he's done this for the love of the music. But we suspect otherwise. We believe that if someone audits the Democrat auditor, they'll find that George Soros has ponied up the money to fill the airwaves with mindless doo-wop and silence the articulate conservatism of Michael Medved and Hugh Hewitt.

Is it just a coincidence that Rhodes himself was dumped from AM 1530 when its format went to the hapless and ratings-less Air America liberal prattle?

Note what this means, conspiracy theorists:

  • A station dumps a Democrat politician who plays moldy oldies in favor of Frankenradio.
  • That station maintains its liberal talk format despite ratings that lag behind volunteer-staffed WAIF.
  • The Democrat politician somehow raises money to lease a station that has had decent success with conservative talk but whose AM signal has all the clarity of two tin cans connected with kite string, and he proposes to play his pet oldies on it.

Well, this much we know. Our drive home in the evening will be poorer without the wit and wisdom of Michael Medved and Hugh Hewitt. But they can't silence us. We'll listen on satellite, we'll listen on streaming audio, we'll read the blogs, we'll fight them on the beaches. It will be our finest hour.
