Inside the Beltway
“The lopsided network coverage perpetuates the Democratic premise that George W. Bush’s 2001 tax cuts were an aberration from the presumably ‘normal’ rates established by Bill Clinton’s 1993 tax increase,” says news analyst Kyle Drennan. “It’s a sign that newly empowered conservatives will have to fight a two-front war in 2011. Against both a wounded liberal Democratic administration and a hostile news media that puts government first.”
A number of Washington-area Beltway readers want to know where they can listen locally to “America’s Morning News,” the snappy talk-radio collaboration between The Washington Times and Talk Radio Network, hosted by John McCaslin and Amy Holmes, with regular contributions from Times staffers.
