Because Bad News Travels Faster And Further Than Good

I know that I don't have a ton of readers, but I thought I'd throw this out here just in case it can help a radio station I'm fond of.

I stream WCBM out of Baltimore while I'm working. I like the morning commentators and the staff.  Among other things, they are very pro-Israel and very hard on radical Islam.  This brings them to the attention of CAIR occasionally.  Recently, Nino posted a commentary on Islam at the WCBM website that resulted in one of CAIR's protest letters.  Unfortunately, it got out in the blogosphere that CAIR's pressure caused them to take the piece down.  This surprised me - they've not buckled to CAIR pressure before.  Turns out that, indeed, it's not true.  Here is the station's response to the accusation:

  Recently, Talk Radio WCBM reposted an article on our station website, www.wcbm.com by Audrey Russo. The article was entitled"Islam: The Only Religion That Tells Everyone On EARTH What To Do". Although WCBM was contacted by a local group and asked to remove the article, we did not comply with that request. Instead, all articles posted on wcbm.com expire after 48 hours and are not archived. WCBM believes in freedom of speech and as a talk radio station, we welcome dialogue and opinions from all perspectives.


  1. I'm glad there's someone willing to stand up to the PC pressure from the murderers & their apologists.

  2. Good for them, and as is typical, the usual suspects claimed a victory which was nothing of the sort.

  3. I will cross post this to correct my post.

  4. @Rev, Aaron, NFO - It's a good little station, and you may have heard my favorite, Tom Marr, when he sits in for Mark Levin sometimes. Sometimes it gets Maryland-heavy because that's where they are, but it just reminds me that I'm glad to be out of that state.

    @Rick - Thanks. I suspect it's a point of pride with Nino that CAIR can't bully them.
