‘Powered by the Widening Scandals’

May 26, 2013

One News Page reported on The Right Frequency’s rise to #1 in two separate Amazon categories.

“Standing alone at Number One above such classics as the audio of the award winning Les Miserables, it is at the very pinnacle in the Radio category where it also beats book by and about media celebrities Rush Limbaugh, Larry King and Wendy Williams,” One News Page reports.

“Powered by the widening scandals with Benghazi and the Internal Revenue Service, interest in public commentary has turned attention to The Right Frequency pushing it far beyond such books as former President Bill Clinton’s Back to Work to the Number One spot the Public Affairs category,” the website said.

Talk Radio Scandal Coverage Past and Present

May 18, 2013

This week President Barack Obama’s administration was hit with three scandals — new revelations on Benghazi, the IRS targeting of conservative groups and the seizure of the Associated Press phone records.

Townahll.com recently ran an excerpt of The Right Frequency, available now for a special offer until Memorial Day, looking at how talk radio handled Clinton scandals in the 1990s.

President Bill Clinton, perhaps forgetting he had the most powerful platform in the world, became irate during one radio interview with KMOX in St. Louis in May 1994.

The piece is headlined, “Talk Radio and Another Scandalous Democratic President.

“I have determined that I’m going to be aggressive about it. After I get off the radio today with you, Rush Limbaugh will have three hours to say whatever he wants and I won’t have any opportunity to respond, and there is no truth detector. You won’t get on afterward and say what was true and what wasn’t,” Clinton said.

Clinton’s remark launched one of Rush’s enduring catchphrases. After the interview, Limbaugh said, “I am the truth detector.” Limbaugh has since referred to himself as “America’s Truth Detector,” among his many informal titles.

Clinton, and all the baggage he brought with him from Arkansas, was a true gift to talk radio. Whitewater, Filegate, Travelgate, Chinagate, Monicagate and various other matters would plague the Clinton presidency for eight years.”
