News yesterday said that Al Gore is in the throes of trying to put together a TV or radio network to combat the sinister influence of conservatives on cable and talk radio. Now, this venture faces all the problems Chris Flannery observes in his fine piece about why there is no liberal talk radio in the latest edition of the Claremont Review of Books (find it here).
Todays Washington Post "Style" section offers several plausible shows the Gore network might offer:
Good Morning Blue States--News & Talk
Lock Box--Market News
Earth Tones in the Balance--Fashion
Karenna Says the Darndest Things--After School
Whos (Not) the Boss--Sitcom
Recount!--News & Debate
Countdown to Recount--Debate
Recount Showdown!--Breaking News
Gore Dance Fever--Medical
Tippers Banned Record Party--Variety
Politically Correct--Labored Humor
Miami Fraud--Political Crime Drama
Americas Least Wanted--Political Crime Drama
No Left Turns invites further programming suggestions. My own view is that the Post missed a great chance to cast Al as Lurch in a film noir remake of The Munsters.
