Laura Ingraham has been blocked from being on her radio show.
There's a great new website dedicated to doing what is right: www.bringbacklaura.com.
Its webpage succinctly summarizes what has happened and what we need to do:
"Laura Ingraham has been blocked from being on her radio show. On the BringLauraBack effort, our goal is to get folks to contact their local programmers and let them know that as the battle with liberals and Obama hits a pitch point, we need one of America's most effective radio hosts on the air NOW!
"Please call your local affiliate and tell the station you want Laura Ingraham back on the Laura Ingraham show."
In addition, the website includes this petition:
"Whereas, Laura Ingraham is one of America's unique national treasures, her absence from your radio station is causing great emotional harm; inflicting mental stress; inspiring a resurgence of creeping liberalism; emboldening bumbling bureacrats, and pleasing unprincipled politicians,
"Let it be known, that the undersigned petitions you to do whatever it takes to BRING BACK LAURA!"
I proudly signed.
As RedState warned:
"You guys always kind of chuckle when Rush or anyone else talks about liberals wanting to shut down talk radio. Well, Laura Ingraham has been pulled off the air.
"The longer she is off the air, the more likely it is the stations could replace the programming altogether. That would be bad.
"Remember, if this can happen to Laura Ingraham, it certainly can happen to any other conservative talk radio host. The left is already agitating about sweeping media reforms to shut conservatives out."
Not everything that people want to know about Laura's problem with Talk Radio Network can be revealed, but take this from National Review's Kathryn Jean Lopez (who knows what's she talks about): "I've been hearing from readers wondering if [Laura]'s transitioning to TV. Although she is starting a show on FNC Monday, no, she has no desire to move to TV. She loves her radio audience...."
And take it from The Minority Report's Steven Foley: "For now, the best way to help BringBackLaura is by contacting your local affiliate and letting them know they need to do whatever they can to BringBackLaura NOW!"
On Laura's website (www.lauraingraham.com), there is a station guide (RADIO STATION FINDER) available for your use.
Michael J. Gaynor has been practicing law in New York since 1973. A former partner at Fulton, Duncombe & Rowe and Gaynor & Bass, he is a solo practitioner admitted to practice in New York state and federal courts and an Association of the Bar of the City of New York member.
Gaynor graduated magna cum laude, with Honors in Social Science, from Hofstra University's New College, and received his J.D. degree from St. John's Law School, where he won the American Jurisprudence Award in Evidence and served as an editor of the Law Review and the St. Thomas More Institute for Legal Research. He wrote on the Pentagon Papers case for the Review and obscenity law for The Catholic Lawyer and edited the Law Review's commentary on significant developments in New York law.
The day after graduating, Gaynor joined the Fulton firm, where he focused on litigation and corporate law. In 1997 Gaynor and Emily Bass formed Gaynor & Bass and then conducted a general legal practice, emphasizing litigation, and represented corporations, individuals and a New York City labor union. Notably, Gaynor & Bass prevailed in the Second Circuit in a seminal copyright infringement case, Tasini v. New York Times, against newspaper and magazine publishers and Lexis-Nexis. The U.S. Supreme Court affirmed, 7 to 2, holding that the copyrights of freelance writers had been infringed when their work was put online without permission or compensation.
Gaynor currently contributes regularly to www.MichNews.com, www.RenewAmerica.com, www.WebCommentary.com, www.PostChronicle.com and www.therealitycheck.org and has contributed to many other websites. He has written extensively on political and religious issues, notably the Terry Schiavo case, the Duke "no rape" case, ACORN and canon law, and appeared as a guest on television and radio. He was acknowledged in Until Proven Innocent, by Stuart Taylor and KC Johnson, and Culture of Corruption, by Michelle Malkin. He appeared on "Your World With Cavuto" to promote an eBay boycott that he initiated and "The World Over With Raymond Arroyo" (EWTN) to discuss the legal implications of the Schiavo case. On October 22, 2008, Gaynor was the first to report that The New York Times had killed an Obama/ACORN expose on which a Times reporter had been working with ACORN whistleblower Anita MonCrief.
