Roger's Programming Notes

I have mixed feelings about Jerry Springer's radio program, scheduled to debut on Air America Radio next month. As Springer hasn't snorted Oxycontin, sexually harassed a subordinate, started a dodgy charity, committed felonies on behalf a sitting president or sold weapons to a theocratic dictatorship for personal profit, his qualifications for hosting an AM radio show seem somewhat lacking.

On the other hand, I have great hopes this will lead to wider glory and fortune for's Jesse Taylor, who blogs for Springer's show. (The other) Roger Ailes got his start producing Mike Douglas's talk show, so who knows what could happen.
