''Liberal voices turning up the volume on the radio''
Today, the P-I's Joel Connelly tunes into "Big Eddie" Schultz on Seattle's Air America station, AM1090, KPTK: "Why has Schultz succeeded while other liberal voices have croaked? The answer is similar to why Limbaugh took off on the right: Unlike some super-serious liberals, Schultz has a sense of humor, and knows how to inform AND entertain. "I'm not prepared to be governor of New York," he joked. "I'm a radio guy; I do a radio show. A radio show is entertainment. You need to move it along. When does a politician move anything along?" While touting Schultz, Connelly also quotes John Carlson, so as to remain "fair and balanced," I suppose.
