If you're a millionaire and liberal, buy radio stations and start getting the message out. That's what Stephen King is doing. Can we hope for a movement?
End the Lie: Stephen King has proven that he knows how to scare his audience. Now the horror-genre author is hoping to rile them up. King is introducing a left-leaning morning talk show on two radio stations broadcast out of his home state of Maine, and says he is hoping to “make some people a little bit angry” with the message he spreads. “We’re a little to the left, but we’re right,” King said in a press conference this week.
The two stations, WZON 103.1 FM and 620 AM are both owned by the writer and his wife, who has sold over 350 million copies of his nearly 50 novels … King himself won’t be hosting the program, but he has put himself into the political limelight in the past.
Former Green Party vice presidential candidate Pat LaMarche and reporter Don Cookson will host The Pulse Morning show, which will start airing on weekday mornings next month. LaMarche said at this week’s press conference that she’ll use the show to combat right wingers that are attacking the state’s residents on welfare, noting that “There’s an awful lot of bullying going on out there right now [and] nothing is more fun than standing up to a bully.”
