The Washington Times and Salem Communications announced Tuesday that radio host Andy Parks' daily show is moving to middays next week on WRC 1260 AM, Salem's flagship news talk radio station in the nation's capital.
Politically charged patriot and country music star Hank Williams Jr. is pining to get into talk radio. Pro-America and pro-military Mr. Williams will be producing "Loud and Rowdy," a trio of two-hour specials to air in the weeks before Election Day, offering up news of the day, politics, music and just plain "speaking his mind," a spokeswoman tells Inside the Beltway.
Early in the 2012 campaign season, predictions were that a major film would reach theaters in the fall, shine a spotlight on one of the presidential candidates, and possibly influence the outcome of the election. And that's how it happened, except the movie wasn't "Zero Dark Thirty," the surefire Hollywood blockbuster about the killing of Osama bin Laden that Republicans feared would throw the election to President Obama.
It's a good thing President Obama already has written two autobiographies; otherwise, he would have a hard time finding a kind word on the bookshelves.
President Barack Obama and Republican rival Mitt Romney are clashing in a reinvigorated election-year debate over tax fairness, with both sides claiming their position is best for a struggling middle class.
GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann lashed out Wednesday at NBC for not apologizing or taking immediate disciplinary action for an off-color song played during her appearance on Jimmy Fallon's "Late Night."

It was 8:21 on a Friday night, and there I was, reading yet another book on how to reclaim the morals and principles that America used to hold dear. What a way to start a weekend. Rather prudish, don't you think?
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee on Friday denied that he was criticizing Academy Award-winning actress Natalie Portman when he suggested her pregnancy was glamorizing the idea of having children outside of marriage.
Conservative talk radio is ganging up on presidential candidate John McCain, attacking him for joining Democrats to push liberal legislation and opposing bedrock Republican positions from tax cuts to immigration.
As the debate over the Senate immigration bill has intensified in recent weeks, both the New York Times and The Washington Post have struggled to keep their pro-open-borders editorial views out of the news section. Ten days ago — just 72 hours before the immigration "compromise" disintegrated on the Senate floor — The Post ran a front-page piece titled "Backers of Immigration Bill More Optimistic." The Post quoted Republican supporters of the bill expressing confidence that "the voices of opposition, especially from conservatives, represent a small segment of public opinion," and that the number of anti-amnesty phone calls to congressional offices was leveling off.
Foul language, divorce, drug abuse, premarital sex, homosexuality. Hollywood used to have as many taboos as a revival tent meeting. Nowadays, almost anything goes in popular culture, where the explicit is taken to ever-more-graphic levels.
"The only films that get recognition are left-wing films. Everything else goes straight to the trash can," he said.
"In terms of what's being produced and released, there is far more ideological balance in documentary films," said Michael Medved, the former film critic turned conservative author and radio host.
