Who Needs Cable TV?

Non-lame alternatives to the cable TV monopoly: - Full, streaming episodes. Lots of Fox and NBC content, such as The Office, The Simpsons, Saturday Night Live, Family Guy, etc. - Lots of CBS content and other older TV shows.

Like music? Try: - Internet Jukebox. Try it. Awesome.

And for the more adventurous, who know how to use search boxes and reference the lengths of video clips: - What's on the local theatre marquee? the TV program guide? (No, you do not need to be bilingual...)

Let's not even talk about BitTorrent.

Hook up your computer to your TV with a cable from:

Pay-for-access cable monopolies are dead. Long live the most democratic of communication mediums - the Internet.

Monday, December 17, 2007 RSS/XML Feed

If you answered 'Yes' to this question, you are not alone in the quest to find an RSS feed that monitors and all of the daily updated 'Savage Approved' news stories.

Unfortunately, Dr. Savage's website does not provide an 'official' feed. Below is an alternative solution that allows you to never miss another great news headline. Works great in Google Reader!

'Savage Nation' Preempted by Baseball - Alternative Listening Options

Michael Savage fans in Pittsburgh, PA are steaming over the frequent preemption of "The Savage Nation" by Pittsburgh Pirates baseball. While listeners in the 'burgh are fortunate enough to have a FM News/Talk station that carries the program (8-11pm Eastern) in all of its stereophonic glory, 104.7FM, as of this summer, is now a Sports/News/Talk station, carrying each and every Pirates game of their (loosing) season. The unfortunate result is that serious discussion of national and international issues is being preempted by the frivolous and trivial distraction of baseball.

While I am not a baseball fan (Cricket is much more interesting), my objection is on the philosophical ground that discussion of serious issues should take precedent over sports, diversions, and other forms of entertainment. It is all the more insulting that the Pirates, despite having the most beautiful (tax-payer financed) stadium in the country, are a poor team with a terrible win/loss record.

So what other listening options are out there for Pittsburgh fans of The Savage Nation?

News: The Corruption of Dianne Feinstein

Dianne Feinstein Resigns
( via, 3/28/2007)


The View-Point:

Bottom Line: If my third-grade level of research can confirm a few of the most basic facts of this story, then I only expect that members of the 'professional' (read: paid) media can bust the full details wide open.
