Holiday Cheer: Ingraham-Free Airwaves

The Laura Ingraham Show is ending its nine-year association with Talk Radio Network, meaning the 48-year-old Conservative gabber will be confining her flat-toned vitriol to Fox News commentary and guest-hosting stints on The O'Reilly Factor. reports that Ingraham, whose program reportedly reaches 5.75 million listeners across 325 radio stations nationwide, is likely to return to radio once she finds a new syndicator. Talkers Magazine this year rated Ingraham's program the nation's fifth-highest rated radio show.

Ingraham, a former law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, is the author of The Hillary Trap: Looking for Power in All the Wrong Places, and Shut Up & Sing: How Elites from Hollywood, Politics and the UN Are Subverting America.

Liberals are likely to be more tolerant of the endless streaming of Little Drummer BoyDeck the Halls and other Christmas carols on the radio this holiday season, knowing that they'll at least be spared encountering the dull-cet tones of Ingraham on the airwaves, however temporary the respite may be.  Lovers of mean-spirited, self-promoting blonde Conservative lawyer/political commentators for the time being will have to make-do with Ann Coulter's invective.

  1. Unfamiliar with Ingraham, except what I've read about her, but have watched Ann Coulter on TV occasionally. If anything, your description of her is restrained. I've often wondered about the mix of genetics and environment that produced someone as cruel and vicious as she.

    On the wider conservative spectrum, it's perplexing and disturbing that inflammatory, confrontational rhetoric is so often a characteristic.

    Here in Canada this past year, our Conservative Federal Safety Minister, Vic Toews, proposed a bill that would give authorities sweeping new online monitoring power. There was immediate and overwhelming opposition. His belligerent response: "You're either with us or the child pornographers." The bill was withdrawn and is being redrafted.

    It's considerably more disturbing that Minister Toews may be appointed to the bench.
