I have a question for Bill Press. Does it make him feel like more or less of a whore than he really is to appear on public radio only minutes after trashing public radio on KPOJ?

 The host of the 8am - 9am showis  not doing a very good job this morning.  Is she new?  Terrible.  Missed some opportunity to engage with callers, cutting them off.  She is not very informed about the topic she was talking about.  This kind of show should have a well informed host.  If you are going to talk about right wing radio... research, so when the right wingers call in... you sound like you know what you are talking about.  I am a lefty who is very much on the side KBOO was trying to present.  This show was just embarrassing. 
REASEARCH your topic if you are hosting a show about it.

There's one particular *frequent* caller that was allowed on the air TWICE in one show today.  I believe he identifies himself as "Scott."  I'm getting sick of hearing his whiney, preachy, holier-than-thou voice and attitude dominating the talk shows.  Isn't there any way you can limit such IDIOTS to only one shot per show, at least?
