  2. Did you all hear that Current TV is expanding their Political shows in the morning and have hired Bill Press’s radio show and Stephanie Miller’s radio show to be morning line-up on Current.

    I’m hoping there’s a space for Sam there as well!

    BREAKING: Ninth advertiser, Tax Resolution, drops Rush Limbaugh

  7. I knew this would happen. It’s Rush’s M.O. Said it yesterday on twitter…

    Nicole Sandler ‏ @nicolesandler

    Rush is now badmouthing the sponsers that dumped his show. Wow

  8. Did you guys hear about Breitbart fans hacking Taibbi and posting his cell phone number?

    Apparently they threatened him and his wife.

    I thought it was a rather jovial column, and pretty toned down for Taibbi…

  9. Check below found on MediaBistro. Sam, get working to put your show on Current TV, of course, you might have to do 3 hrs but gosh I’d love to see you added right after SMS.

    New York, NY – March 5, 2012 – Current TV today announced the launch of a new morning news block featuring live simulcasts of the radio programs “The Bill Press Show” from 6am-9am ET and “The Stephanie Miller Show” from 9am-12pm ET every weekday starting early this spring. These additions further strengthen Current’s line-up of political commentary and analysis programs which include “Countdown with Keith Olbermann,” “The Young Turks with Cenk Uygur,” and “The War Room with Jennifer Granholm”.

  10. PS Keith twittered that Granholm has a contract till the end of the year and might not be back afterward. You would be good after his show, also but I prefer after Stephanie.
