Media Bias Sunday Talk scoreboard! GOP 7, Dems 3 #LibrulMediaMyAss

By |August 27th, 2016|Tags: , , , , |

Tomorrow is Media Bias Sunday! Or as I like to call it, Librul Media My Ass Sunday. Previously I kept a running tally of all things unfair, unbalanced for years via the infamous TPC Media Bias Sunday Talk scoreboard. Now the series is a regular feature at Radio Or Not. No matter who’s in the White House or runs Congress, the corporate media nearly always has more GOP guests appearing on Sunday talk shows than Democratic guests. This week there was plenty of news centered around both presidential candidates. Don-Don Trump flip-flopped all over the place on immigration and was his usual infantile, nasty, lying, bigoted self [...]

Trump campaign spokesperson in 2012: “Any pure breeds left?”

By |August 26th, 2016|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Last night I took a screen grab of a tweet by GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump's campaign spokesperson Katrina Pierson. I did that just in case she felt compelled to scrub it. I don't remember a time when I've gotten such a huge reaction on Twitter. I mean, when you get retweets from Patton Oswalt and Josh Malina, you know you're onto something. Trump claims to be “the least racist person that you have ever met," yet ironically, he consistently makes comments and pushes policies that contradict that statement. He also makes a point of hiring people who have their own racist [...]

8-26-16 Pre-Op Check – Surgery on Tuesday

By |August 26th, 2016|Tags: , , , , |

I'm cleared for surgery and, believe it or not, the insurance has approved it all. As we were driving down to the University of Miami Hospital yesterday for my pre-op tests and third degree, I decided it would be a good time to call United Healthcare to make sure all the authorizations were taken care of. (***correction: My brilliant, adoring, wonderful husband David actually suggested I call UHC to make sure we were covered. He just didn't want to deal with another of my meltdowns in the middle of the hospital...) After first wasting 20 minutes trying to hear and understand [...]

Trump outreach worked… with “alt-right” anti-Semites issuing death threats

By |August 25th, 2016|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

Today MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell interviewed Former Director of Media Relations for the Bob Dole campaign, Andrew Weinstein. After he organized an anti-Trump petition, the subsequent anti-Semitic attacks and threats he received from the “alt-right” movement were utterly horrific. Please watch all the way through: And what was GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump's directive to these bottom-feeders when asked how he felt about their vile outbursts and death threats? "I don't have a message for my fans." His hateful "fans" ran with that (at about 4:10 in the video). And so the Clinton campaign is also running with their own message. Here is brand spankin' [...]

8-24-16 Nicole Sandler Show – One More for the Road

By |August 24th, 2016|Tags: , , , , , , |

  Today is my final show before taking some time off for surgery and recuperation. I honestly can't remember the last time I took an extended period of time off. I moved my show online the night Air America went off the air and, aside from a sick day or a travel day here and there, I've been on the air. This time I'm putting my health first. So after I chat with Wendell Potter today, I'm taking some time off. I have pre-op appointments tomorrow and Friday, and surgery is Tuesday, so I'm really not slacking off. And since [...]

8-23-16 Nicole Sandler Show – Thank You

By |August 23rd, 2016|Tags: , , , |

An hour goes by very quickly. I really thought that cutting back to one hour a day would make things easier as I'm having trouble keeping my thoughts straight these days, but it's just less time to fit in  lot of information. After tomorrow's show, I'll be taking a few weeks off. My surgery is on Tuesday, and I have a million things to do before then, and a few doctors appointments and tests too. So, I'll do something very unusual for me, and will be on hiatus for a while. I will post here and on the Fuck Cancer [...]

8-22-16 Nicole Sandler Show – Back to School, Weather Permitting

By |August 22nd, 2016|Tags: , , , , , , |

I decided to cut the show back to one hour a day today and, of course, forgot to start the recorder going. On top of that, I forgot to start the YouTube stream! So today's show begins already in progress... It just shows how scattered I've been lately. The one thing I haven't been scattered about is the cancer. I keep all the doctors appointments straight and, for the most part, have stayed on top of the stupid, unnecessary, bullshit referrals. I did my research and met with three surgeons, and made a decision. And now my surgery is scheduled [...]

Need a laugh? Time for Another Stand-Up Political Comedy Blog

By |August 22nd, 2016|Tags: |

Yes, it’s time to steal a few more jokes from my father-in-law (F.I.L.). His blog posts range from political comedy to humorous commentary on pop culture. For those of you who might be new here, he used to write for Alan King, Milton Berle and Jonathan Winters, just to name a few. And all those Dean Martin Roasts,  too: Don Rickles, Red Buttons, Phyllis Diller, Sammy Davis, Jr., etc. A tiny respite from all the frustrating events of the day: TRUMP had a big staff shakeup this week and put the head of the ultra conservative "Breitbart News" website, STEPHEN [...]
