Jane Fonda’s Radio Network Tanks

Jane Fonda’s Radio Network Tanks

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.”

GreenStone claimed it would deliver "de-politicized, de-polarized talk radio by women hosts for female listeners,” and Steinem said it would offer an alternative to current radio talk, which she described as "very argumentative, quite hostile, and very much male-dominated.”

She also said radio was "overbalanced toward the ultra-right.” 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. Greenstone offered interviews with such liberals as Ralph Nader, as well as segments on parenting and relationships.

But its programming was picked up by only eight affiliates in small to mid-sized markets, and its backers have now pulled the plug.

I read this in the NY Post today and it made my day. God Almighty I can't stand Jane Fonda, what an arrogant harridan she is. I said sometime ago when she was out there protesting the Iraq War what a pathetic sight she was, trying to appear relavant to at least two generations of young people who have absolutly no idea who she is/was and a population that has for the most part either no use for her or have forgotten about entirely and don't care. Poetic justice! J'Mac.

Stop ... I'm going to burst into tears if you don't.

Is it OK if I hope Jane Fonda gets run over by a Mac truck?

I agree with all of you on this topic. Especially Arnold.

I listen to a lot of talk radio when I'm in the car. Haven't seen very many "progressive" radio shows that got much of an audience for very long. It gets really tiresome to listen to the lies.

Our lack of a proper reaction to this traitorous b---- has caused a great deal of our more serious trouble with the left. She should have been tried and SHOT for treason during Vietnam.
