If you build it, they will ignore you. Yes, friends, another liberal talk radio network has tanked. Greenstone Media, a liberal feminist talk radio network backed by Gloria Steinem and Jane Fonda, has folded. And rightly so. Error America has already gone bankrupt and The HORN (Head On Radio Network) and RadioLeft can only be heard on their fledgling internet streams. Nova M Radio, founded by the same charlatans who started Air America, is heard on at least one station.
America simply isn’t interested in blame America first far left liberal Scream Radio. $5,000,000 and a year later Greenstone Media has given up the ghost and gone out with a whimper.
The “feminist” radio company whose founders include Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinem failed to attract an audience and it signed off the air for good on Friday.
When the talk-radio network, called GreenStone, officially launched in September 2006, NewsMax reported that it was a “new left-wing radio network that plans to appeal to women listeners and counter the dominance of conservative talk radio.”
Apparently all three listeners had fallen asleep and were unavailable for comment. Rip Van Winkle had this to say: “Zzzzzzz.”
But “Greenstone Media’s brand of tepid liberalism didn’t appeal to women,” Carrie Lukas, author of “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Women, Sex and Feminism,” writes in the New York Post.
Besides there are already some great female voices on the air.
Lukas pointed to Laura Ingraham, who is heard on 340 stations and has an audience of more than 5 million, and Dr. Laura Schlessinger, with some 7.75 million listeners.
And there’s always Melaine Morgan. And the media is already saturated with left-wing viewpoints: NPR, PBS, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC. We don’t need more of the same.
