Wingnut Radio Host Melanie Morgan Fired

The right-wing radio host Melanie Morgan has been let go from her job at KSFO radio after 14 years on-air. The station decided not to renew her contract in an effort to cut costs. Morgan said of the firing, "The ratings were terrific and I got to connect with a lot of passionate conservative causes, and I’m really grateful for that. I don’t know what’s going to happen to the show, I don’t know what’s going to happen to KSFO."

Ummmm....Mel, if the ratings were terrific they would have kept you and fired someone with lower ratings. That's kind of how the radio business works, dear. Perhaps, you were let go because barely anyone was listening, and in a field dominated by shows just like yours, you weren't very good. Or perhaps, the owners of the station got a conscience and decided they no longer wanted to be responsible for the person who said the following:

On Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi: "We’ve got a bull’s-eye painted on her big, wide laughing eyes."

On NY Times editor Bill Keller: "If he were to be tried and convicted of treason, yes, I would have no problem with him being sent to the gas chamber."

On Holocaust survivor George Soros: "cheerfully and willingly went to work for the Nazis in order to further his own career."

There is much, much more and Media Matters has the rest here.

Pfft, Melanie was a great radio host who got an un-just pink slip from a cruddy radio station company.

On a positive note, there is a new finding about what Code Pinks REAL agenda is:

Code Pink = Nazi's of the 21st Century

*This has been your friendly radio announcement, good day!*

You quote her, but everything she said is true.......Why does the left always run from the truth, and try to smear or out shout those who disagree with you.......Oh yeak, code pink? A very tiny flea on an eoepahnt's ass

Dave Splash said...

Minority Man - I'm not sure I get your point. However, if her ratings were as great as she claims, she would not have been fired. There's no conspiracy here. It's business. She isn't worth whatever it was they were paying her, and they won't do it anymore. I thought conservatives believed in the free market system.

Who is being smeared or shouted at? I quoted what she said. How can her own words be considered slanderous to herself?

I don't know about her radio show, I never heard of her before the code pink goofiness arose in Berkley. No matter how bad her show was, helping to expose code (what the hell were we doing in Hawaii in the first place) pink was top rate. Those people were totally goofy. Better yet, was the city counsel in Berkley. Thanks.

GO MELANIE!!!!! The cowardly, liberal rats are scurrying about, lashing out unjustly against people that exposed them as the traitors they are. The Code Pinkos and their supporters do not understand that, in the immortal words of Pogo "We have met the enemy, and he is us", THEY are the traitors. Do they really believe that if America falls, that they will be allowed to live? NOT. They will be the first rounded up and sent to reeducation camps, ala Khmer Rouge. Get a clue losers....

'Nuff said.

Oh my, how will all you anonymous wingnuts get to hear your daily dose hate-filled, racist, anti-freedom radio without Melanie Morgan. I guess you forgot about Savage, Limbaugh, Ingraham, Cunningham, etc etc etc.

Could your whining be any less relevant? Doubtful.

hey, dave! R U one of those Left wing nuts who hate the military as well? - and hate ALL that the US USED to stand for? All of the hateful comments above only further convince me that you LEFT wing nutcases are narcissistic egoists who care not a thing about anyone but your own selfish agenda! Read the Constitution and learn some of the TRUE history of this nation - not the garbage they're teaching nowadays! go back and read it from OLD history books - written before the LEFT twisted and turned it to their own agenda!
All you left wing hate jobs just go out and have another drink of your coke spiked kool aid! You have NO idea of truth and justice - nor do you know how this country grew to be so strong in so short a time in history! Instead of spewing your hatred, read some truth! You might just get some (GASP!) education while you're at it!

Anonymous said...

So let me get this straight, you call her a "wingnut" because she devotes her time and resources supporting our troops?

Your fetid liberalism counters everything noble that made this country great.

salty said...

THE TRUTH -O- FOR THE TRUTH......

Melanie was surely simply thrown under the bus as a sacrifice....

The terrorists strive to and quite possibly will strike our country AGAIN....

Let us pray that from this horror there come some good....

MAY THIS STRIKE COME AT A TIME WHEN THE BERKLEY SILLY COUNCIL IS IN SESSION .... AND MAY NANCY PELOSY BE GUEST SPEAKER........

It is not hate.... simply JUSTICE..

Dave Splash said...

It's called Prozac, people. Take some. Calm the fuck down.

Are you seriously suggesting, Salty, that the assassination of the person 3rd in line to the president is somehow justified because some dipshit radio talk show host was fired?

Not sure Osama himself could have thought up anything more anti-American. Congrats! You take the cake.

And you all consider me "hateful" because I accurately quoted your hero (and how said is it that your hero is a radio host)?

salty said...

Hey dave splash (splash of What?)

Get yo head straight----- Melanie is no HERO -- simply a voice....

The word or insinuation of ASSASSINATION was not used ....

Quite simply, that those UN-AMERICANS among us who enjoy the freedoms or brave forefathers and the heros of today fight for should and might inherit the wind they breed.

IF THERE BE ANOTHER TERRORIST ATTACK ---- THOSE AMONG US LIKE THE BRKLEY CODE PINKOS SHOULD BE THE FIRST TO WITNESS THE BENEFITS........

As previously stated, tis not hate, simply JUSTICE ...

By the way sir splash ... YOUR term "dipshit", an observer might suggest you search your family tree for the national source of said affliction!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I eagerly await the sight of liberals, socialists, and leftists in hand-to-hand combat with terrorists in the streets of California cities. (Quick somebody name something good that liberals, socialists, or leftists have done to promote the security, safety, or economy of the US of A.)

GuyFromOhio said...

If this was the quality of Morgans' listeners, small wonder KSFO fired her sorry ass.

But never fear, every door that closes means another one opens - she gets full-time shilling for Move America Backward, sending jerky and Gatorade to our guys dying for lies and a lack of proper armor and equipment.

Now back to the anonymous gibbering and flinging of capitalized poo ...

Dave Splash said...

Thanks Guy. Finally someone normal chimes in to combat all the crazy that's been lingering around this posting...

Do any of you ever read anything but your own hate filled websites? Try reading websites that have no political agenda, or are funded by people with an axe to grind against the government, like stratfor.com. My son just got back from Iraq. He said the Iraqis are grateful to be finally liberated from a dictator who treated them like slaves, and they can now take charge of their own destiny. But hey, our guys are dying for nothing, RIGHT? We went in for the wrong reasons, but our military earned their respect and gratitude. Al Queda destroyed their infrastructure, we re-built it. AQ cuts off heads, we give them jobs. It's called character. A foreign concept to most of you out there in la-la land.

Dave Splash said...

I don't live in La-la land. I live in Nebraska, asshole. That's about as middle American as you can get. My 2nd cousin died inside the WTC on 9/11. Is it okay for me to have an opinion now?

Your comment (a gutless anonymous comment) shows that you have a serious political agenda. You support the policies of this administration. You ignore the fact that the job of hunting down and capturing the people responsible for 9/11 has been virtually ignored for the last five years, and keep blathering on about all the "success" we are having in Iraq.

Iraq - a country without WMD, a nuclear program, or any ties to 9/11 yet that is where you, Mr. genius think we must remain for 100 years.

In poll after poll of civilians and those in the govt, the Iraqis want us to leave. They view the US as the problem, not the solution. I didn't make it that way or wish it that way, but it is that way.

It's no failure on the military's part. They did what they were told, and did it well. The failure is in our civilian commander in chief, George W. Bush. Perhaps, one day, you will rise up from all of your ignorance and see that supporting the troops while not supporting the president is not only possible, but patriotic.

To blindly support an administration that has done more damage and strain to the military by increasing the lengths of tours and screwing the veterans when they come home, plus damaging the US's standing in the world is just plain sad. The Iraqis cannot take control of their own destiny while we are still occupying the country. We need to crush Al Queda. The real Al Queda - the one in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Remaining in Iraq for 100 years or 50 years or even 5 years is hurting our chances of defeating Al Queda because we have become the #1 terrorist recruiting tool. The fact that you don't see this, and cannot follow this basic logic, shows a shocking detachment from reality. I worry for you.

salty said...

hey splash------

hang arround for 50 to 100 years and read history books..

historians of that day and time will surely list the three GREATEST US Presidents EVER,
LINCOLN --- REAGAN --- Geo. W.BUSH

The reasons are obvious TODAY to any REASONABLE person ...
too bad the country has a limited supply of them.

Liberals!!! the ntruth is not in them ... Their retoric can not stand in the light of truth ... they revel and flourish in the darkness of ignorance....

STUDY HISTORY AFTER WW1, NEVIL CHAMBERLAIN ETC....
The same hollow empty headed thoughts and babbling today as then ..... and lo we got WW2 which cost America 300+ dead EVERY day of that war......

Dave Splash said...

Sad. So sad. You have such a fundamental misunderstanding of both history and of the current threat, that I am frightened for you. I mean, to be so laughably gullible as to believe the talking points from the WH that compare President Charles in Charge to great presidents like Lincoln. You are ridiculous.

Terrorism is just one of the many threats we face in the 21st century, but you seem to have a head in the sand attitude that puts blinders on you. Blinders that keep you from seeing that we are going about this in the wrong way. If you really cared about "victory" as much as you care about propping up our worst president ever, I'd maybe take you seriously.

We have tried things your way, and it didn't work. It is time to realize this and change course. It is the only sane, rational, and pro-American thing we can do.

Just because you shout at the top of your lungs about Nazis and Chamberlain and appeasement and Lincoln or whatever else you blather on about, does not mean you have any idea what you're talking about. Great presidents like FDR, were not so foolish as to attack the wrong country and place our entire army in one place making it target practice for any wannabe jihadist in the Middle East.

The people who care about stopping terrorism and regaining the stature the US once had in the world are on my side, not yours. Failure is not an option, and continuing with the Bush plan is most definitely failure.

She was a co-host on the Morning Show with Lee Rodgers, and Lee Rodgers is continuing to do the show.

KSFO did not "fire" Melanie. They had no say in the issue.

The parent company, Citadel Broadcasting, is in trouble, and is doing across-the-board cutting at stations all over, and decided as part of that cost-cutting to not renew her contract, despite the show's continued success and profitability.

Dave Splash said...

Thanks for chiming in, Melanie. Nice to see you're keeping busy now that you're unemployed.

However, it is a central tenet of capitalism that if something is profitable, you keep doing it. If the show was successful and profitable, they would not be letting you go. It's pretty basic people.

Perhaps if we're lucky, the terrorists will bomb Berkeley! Then they could go and take out the Mayor of Cleveland! Gosh, terrorists behaving terrorist"ickly....magnanimous!
