Journalism and Digital Platforms – HuffPost
Remember, this was at the height of Iraq War craziness, in the first term of George W. Bushâs presidency. We were lampooning, needling, provoking, and criticizing not only President Bush but Bill OâReilly, Sean Hannity, and the rest of the conservative bloviators. Al Franken was our flagship but we also featured Randi Rhodes, Janeane Garofalo, and a then-unknown radio news reader from New Hampshire named Rachel Maddow. All the shows, all day long, across the U.S. broadcast an aggressive, anti-Bush, pro-worker, pro-environment, Progressive viewpoint.
