WWRL 1600 AM is a radio station in New York City that was dominated by liberal talking points. Now, it’s turning into a Spanish-language music and talk station.
“Next week, when WWRL 1600 AM flips its format from progressive talk to Spanish-language music and talk, New York will have no left-leaning commercial talk station for the first time in decades — an ironic development just as an unabashedly liberal mayor and City Council are set to take office.”
Political anchor Errol Louis lamented the news in an editorial called “What Killed the Liberal Radio Star?” for Thursday’s NY Daily News:
“Sad to say, the steady elimination of progressive radio from the airwaves is part of a nationwide crisis facing commercial radio.”
The irony is that for the party that always wants to blame problems on the messenger, this time they won’t admit that the messenger and message is the problem. Townhall noted on 8/29, TV is not much better for liberals.
- Unabashed, sneering, surreal lefty propaganda isn’t selling. America’s least-watched “major” cable “news” network has continued its ratings slide this summer, falling off a cliff within the key 25-54 demographic. I put “news” in scare quotes because MSNBC is not a news outfit, by its own president’s admission, and according to empirical independent studies. The network’s numbers are way down across the board and have sustained especially dramatic erosion during the key primetime hours:
On cable, MSNBC is like Cabal News….which moonlights on weekends as “prison TV”. Goodbye Liberal radio, see you in the funnies.
