The Radio Equalizer: Brian Maloney

Limbaugh, Hannity, AFRTS

OUT OF LEFT FIELD

Limbaugh, Hannity Face Armed Forces Radio Loss




***UPDATED***


Handing liberal opponents a sudden victory in their longtime battle over Armed Forces Radio content, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity may soon be removed from broadcast outlets serving American soldiers stationed around the world.

With last year's addition of liberal talk shows to the Armed Forces Radio and Television Service lineup, how could this happen now?

Wasn't the previous flap over such programming resolved at that point?

In this new scenario, ALL political talk shows will be nearly eliminated, including those hosted by liberals Ed Schultz and Al Franken.

If Hannity and Limbaugh aren't being singled out for quasi- cancellation, that might seem fair, but the devil is in the details.

And it's a particularly ugly devil: upon closer examination, an astounding picture of anti- conservative bias is clearly revealed. Was it intentional? We don't know.


In a highly unexpected development, a radio consulting firm hired by the military has strongly recommended dumping these programs from stations that reach the vast majority of troops and others residing overseas.

After an extensive study was conducted that included a number of focus groups, Lund Media Research determined that talk radio and country music should be largely eliminated to make room for hip-hop, rap and pop formats, according to Stars and Stripes.

Only in rare cases where three military radio frequencies are available in a region would Limbaugh and Hannity survive in any manner. Even then, only about an hour of each show would remain on the schedule of the third station, rather than their entire three- hour broadcasts.

Included on the cut list is NPR's programming, generally regarded as liberal, but it would still air for at least three hours daily.

While the military must decide whether to act on Lund's advice, if it wasn't intending to take these recommendations seriously, we find it unlikely that AFRTS would pay a significant amount of money and assist in coordinating this research.

Until now, station programming decisions have been handled locally, with area brass making the call as to what was suitable for troops stationed in a particular conflict zone or military base. Under the new proposal, that will be centralized.


Back to the key question: if both liberal and conservative programming are dealt the same blow, where's the bias?

Because conservative talkers are many times more popular with the troops than their liberal counterparts, the right will suffer greatly, while "progressives" have much less to lose. That's because very few stationed overseas are listening to the lefties.

It's in Lund's own data, reprinted here from Stars and Stripes (click on image to enlarge), proving that Limbaugh, Hannity and conservative advice host Dr. Laura are infinitely more popular than Franken and Schultz.

Based on their results, 24.9% across all age groups reported enjoying Rush Limbaugh and 13.2% also favored Sean Hannity, with Dr. Laura generating a 12.9% approval rating. Keep in mind that these are excellent numbers, far higher than the audience shares they generate at home.

When looking at those 35 and older, Rush generates a huge 35.2% figure, just behind NPR, while Hannity and Dr. Laura come in with 17.6% and 20.6%, respectively.

By comparison, Franken and Schultz fare poorly, with 6.3% and 2.2% respective overall positive ratings, according to the study. In the 35+ category, the results were similar, with a 6.7% for Stuart and just 2.8% for Big Eddie.

Even in the younger 18-34 demographic, conservative talkers clobbered their liberal counterparts.

With this kind of data, how could anyone determine that nearly all political talk radio should be eliminated from the two proposed primary worldwide broadcast stations? Why not remove the unpopular liberal shows and keep the rest?

Whether Lund was the best consulting firm to handle this assessment of worldwide AFRTS programming is unclear. If there's any agenda, it is likely pro- music in nature, as the company primarily works on that end of the business.

But with such an astounding misinterpretation of its own data, we can't rule out partisan bias.

For the left, including some Democrats in Congress, this could be Christmas in June. From here, it's up to the military to make the final call. Their first meeting to consider the proposed changes will take place Thursday.

At least for now, however, substantial deviations from these recommended changes seem unlikely.

  • Brian,

    To call this "an astounding picture of anti- conservative bias" is absurd. Or, if true, I assume that means you feel the current programming reflects an anti-liberal bias.
    But to the more important point that you neglet: This is a regretable decision. Our armed forces should be allowed to listen to political discourse, even if it is through the echo-chamber medium of talk radio.

  • The current programming is more than fair, considering the data showing Franken and Schultz to be unpopular.
    It's in the graph.

    Given this information, liberal programming should be removed and conservative shows should stay. The results are clear.

    It's crazy to punish Rush, Hannity and Dr. Laura, simply because Franken and Schultz aren't well liked by the troops.

    You simply can't lump all talk shows together and say they're underperforming. Franken and Schultz are clearly dragging down the rest.

  • This has all the hallmarks of someone in the Pentagon trying to make a justification for having an office in the E-ring instead of the mail room.

    I have a tough time squaring NPR being left at three hours a day, with Rush, with his almost identical approval numbers amongst the listenership, being cut down to one hour a day - especially when NPR's coverage of United States military activity overseas is almost universally cast in a negative light, especially concerning OIF and OEF, and Rush's is almost universally positive.

    The same can be said regarding the approval numbers about Joyner and Hannity - why is Joyner being bumped but Hannity kept at one hour?

    What is obvious about that graph is that Big Eddie and Barr have no bidness being on AFRTS in any capacity.

    In any event, the soldiers will have the final say, because when Joyner and Limbaugh inform their audiences overseas that AFRTS is about to dump their programs, I expect that the crap will start hitting the fan.

    Whether or not the splatter will make it all the way to DC is another question.

    Lund has a self-professed track record of building listenership through adjusting current formats to reflect the current times. What the folks at Lund might not recognize is that AFRTS is not commercial radio - it is supplied as a SERVICE (the "S" in AFRTS stands for "service") to the military, and jerking around with the programming just to be new and hip and cutting edge is just dad-blamed stupid.

    Someone ought to send a copy of "Good Morning Vietnam" to the nice folks at Lund Research.

  • Franken and Schultz have only been on armed forces radio for 10 or so months. Forgot that little factual tidbit, huh? The problem with Limbaugh and hannity is the lies, distortions and propaganda , unparallel to any other talk show host. Our troops do not deserve lies and pue propaganda. Your hero Limbaugh is not a political commentator he is a right wing mouthpiece for the RNC, and no longer even does a good job at it. the pills took away his edge. The man can not even handle a "liberal" caller. I heard somebody confront Limbaugh on the radio, about the Iraqi war. The hack (Limbaugh) ignored the statement and instead pretended the caller "used a fake name" to get on the air. That is not talent, that is hackery. Why would you want our brave troops, to listen to a filthy propagandist? An enabler of their deaths, and enabler of a radical and dangerous, wreckless and dis-honest government? At this point, and I mean it with all honesty, if you still apologise and cover for this administration, you are an enemy of America. You freaks have labeled "liberals" as enemies of America for 30 years now. It is time to take back the language of political discourse, your time is up. Brian, you are an enemy of America. Coulter calls us "enemies', Savage calls us "enemies' , I will do the same. Any individual who acts as a Bush enabler, Bush mouthpiece or bush apologist is an enemy of America. Not "republicans" not "conservatives", Bush enablers. Where do you stand Brian, Bush or America? How does it feel, to get the coulter treatment and be labeled as an enemy of America? You freaks have done it for way too long. This is why you hate Air America. They have delivered the same hate, that your favorite right wingers have delievered to "liberals" for 30 years. Simple as that. Two can play that game. The right does not own the art of Mccarthism, the art of smearing and the art of insulting. Get used to it 28%er, right wing hate is not the only game in town. Come July, I too will throw my hat into the radio business, and will be doing a little internet radio show. I expect all you right wingers from this blog to tune in! You will enjoy my hate!!!

  • RWW, I'm a vet and I didn't, nor do the current troops, need you to tell us what we should be listening to. You may not like the popular shows, but your opinion doesn't mean ****, it's about what they troops want.

    By Blogger Lonewatchman, at 04 June, 2006 21:10  

  • My question is since when has The Fairness Doctrine been revived from the dead? And I will give that Franken-stein and Darth Fargo have been on much shorter than Limbaugh, Dr. Laura and Hannity.

    The troops want stuff to boost morale and those two libs do NOTHING BUT REDUCE morale among our soldiers so much as they want to see Madame DeFarge (Monica Crowley's nickname for the so-called New York Senator Hillary Clinton) in the White House.

    Yeah, if Clinton is a New York Senator and a Yankees fan I MUST BE A RED SOX FAN!

  • They'd trash talk radio and country music to make room for rap and hip hop formats?

    Obviously shifting the target audience away from the right and toward the left. How many Republicans do you know who listen to hip hop radio?

    It doesn't matter to the left that most listeners are center and center-right. The aim is to engineer the audience, rather than serve it. It's just more social engineering.

    Besides, t's dangerous to let those young soldiers listen to Rush. They might come home and vote conservative.That's at the botom of it, isn't it.

  • I was in AFRTS for 20 years and am not shocked to see this bone-headed decision by a bunch of liberal civilian bureaucrats at the heart of the organization. It should be interesting to see how far they can push men and women who carry guns.

    If there were ever a cause for an e-mail campaign, this is surely it.

    By Blogger Lone Ranger, at 05 June, 2006 02:52  

  • I find it odd that NPR, Franken, Shultz, ect... would even want to be on the Armed Services Network anyway. Is their goal to bring down troop morale with their vicious anti-American and anti-Military propaganda?

    By Blogger Capitalist Infidel, at 05 June, 2006 06:32  

  • Lund Media Research determined that talk radio and country music should be largely eliminated to make room for hip-hop, rap and pop formats...

    Um, wouldn't it make more sense to simply create a Talk Channel, a Country Channel, and a Hip-Ho Channel?

    Oh, but wait, too many soldiers might choose "the wrong channel." And we couldn't have that, now, can we?

    By Blogger V the K, at 05 June, 2006 10:32  

  • Or, you can say that Hannity and Limbaugh are pro-military and that is why they should remain on the air.

    It is a breath of fresh air when I hear commentators praise the military rather than tear them down, aka Radio America.

    I vote, along with my dead grandparents and unborn children, to keep them on the air.

    By Blogger tradersmith, at 05 June, 2006 10:37  

  • Hannity and Limbaugh are pro military? absolutly not. They are pro-Bush. that is all. you right wingers are all mentally sick little freaks. Franken is pro military. Rhodes is pro-military, and served. I never heard Schultz, can not judge. limbaugh is no more pro-military than Jane Fdnda. He is a filthy, vile piece of human excrement. He will be rewarded in hell, along with all you sick demented freaks. As far as the other poster claiming to be a 'vet', save it for Hannity and his flag waving , knuckle dragging listeners. I don't buy it. Limbaugh is a sissy, who got out of the war with a pimple on his ass. A coward, just like every sick little Right winger, you do not support the military. You support BUSH. If you supported the TROOPS, you would be OUTRAGED that these Marines who commited these murders are actually being charged for something beyond their control. the Bush administration is going to let these marines are going to be the scapegoats, for a poorly run war, and Hannity, Limbaugh and all you freaks on the internet are going to sit by, and not say a word. Rumsfeld should be charged with the murders, not the marines. You support nothing but the letter "R". You are sick deviants

    By Blogger rightwingwhiner, at 05 June, 2006 11:07  

  • Speaking of that human pile of excrement, draft dodging, drug addicted, cigar smoking, 3 times divorced, arrogant piece of turd Limbaugh. I wonder how many troops get their Limbaugh letter? 3 maybe? Can you imagine, this filthy little nazi, selling this crap to the troops. Liberals give troops free phone cards. The filthy human pile of turd, sells newsletters for $50.
    Anyone who listens to limbaugh and takes him seriously deserves to rot in the inner cirrle of hell forever.
    You are enemies of America. I stand by what I say. IT is time to take this language back. you right wingers, created the hate, you do not own a copyright on hate. You deserve what is happening to you. Rot in hell Bushies, you are enemies of society, America and free though

  • whiner, that sounded more than a fit than a whine. Rename yourself.

    If Hannity and Limbaugh support the troops and praise them, then they should be on military radio.

    As for Franken and Rhody being promilitary, I have this piece of property I want to sell you if you believe those two are promilitary.

    By Blogger tradersmith, at 05 June, 2006 12:31  

  • Franken praises the troops as does Randi. you never listened. Attacking Rumsfeld is not attacking the troops.

    Praising an administration that abuses the troops is being against the troops. therefore Limbaugh is anti-troops and so is Hannity.

    If you praise the military's abusers and killers, you are against the troops.

    Which side are you on? Bush or America?

    By Blogger rightwingwhiner, at 05 June, 2006 13:21  

  • Wow, what a far left wing kook fringe lunatic rant from teenage whiner.

    I'm still curious why someone who has a seething hatred for our men and women in uniform like Franken and Rhodes would want to be on the Armed Services network? I'm pretty sure that the military would rather not have the media wing of al Qaeda (Air America) on their radio.

    By Blogger Capitalist Infidel, at 05 June, 2006 16:01  

  • "Seething hatred" - oh pulleeze.

    Al Franken goes on USO Tours to Iraq and Randi Rhodes was an airman in the Air Force, unlike most of the Chickenhawks who populate Right Wing Radio.

    When they say "Troop" you mean:

  • RWW,

    I suggest you start taking the Thorazine again, or have your doctor up the dosage.

    By Blogger dandydon, at 05 June, 2006 17:31  

  • What Robert said. The cute trick of the contemporary right has been pretending that criticism of the civilian leadership is criticism of the troops. When Franken and Rhodes attack Rumsfeld and Bush for getting the troops into a misguided war, they are supporting the troops. How exactly is it anti-military to bash the people who are trying to wreck the military?

    However, I do think that the troops should listen to whatever they want, including people like Limbaugh and Hannity who are anti-military (Limbaugh and Hannity are pro-Rumsfeld, pro-Bush, and pro- letting the troops stay in Iraq indefinitely; therefore Limbaugh and Hannity want the troops to die unnecessarily; therefore they are anti-military).

    By Blogger M.A., at 05 June, 2006 17:32  

  • And the "cute" little trick that liberals have been using to short circuit criticism for trashing the military is the nifty little phrase "we support the troops, but". When you trash the military, you trash the troops that serve in it. Liberals are fooling nobody. Well, maybe themselves, but nobody who is really listening.

  • M.A.

    I started to logically diagram your last parenthesesed statement to show you the absolute absurdity you were putting forth, but logic fails me. I can only deduce some kind of mental instability. This is the second time in one string of posts that I am making a crack about a commenters mental health, but you folks defy any kind of logic. It is pure emotion and feeling with nothing resembling actual thought included.

    Facts are not truth folks. Facts are what we use to arrive at truths. The liberals posting here need to learn the difference. Sorry if that is too deep. Take a logic class from a good professor who has no agendas.

    I find his delusional rants entertaining, and it amazes me that someone who must spend... what, 10-12 hours a day spanging for change on the streets has time to post. I hope he never goes back on his meds.

    As far as Franken and Rhodes go, I think the only troops they really support are the gay ones who want to get married. The left's entire "we support the troops" facade was blown away by the Snoopy dance they've done over Haditha. Dick Turban claimed he supported the troops too... even while he was calling them Nazis and Soviets.

    By Blogger V the K, at 05 June, 2006 19:06  

  • Speaking of Haditha, j'ever notice that the left wing media goes to extreme lengths to say Islamist terror is perpetrated by a tiny minority of extremists. (Except for Reuters, which denies there is such a thing as Islamist terror). But when allegations like Haditha and Abu Ghraib are raised, they eagerly try to smear the entire US military with it?

    But of course, they support the troops.

    By Blogger V the K, at 05 June, 2006 19:10  

  • It is obvious that too many of the posters here get their info from Druggie. Going after Rummy is the best way to support the troops. Franken, Randi, Schultz, Hartmann, Malloy, NONE of them have ever not supported the troops.

    Pimping for this corrupt, immoral bunch of bastards is not supporting the troops.
    It's just like the crap VtheK just posted about Durban. No senible or person of average intelligence could have misinterped Durbin's remarks as degrading to the troops.
    Pete asked (but forgot the ? mark): It's dangerous to let those young soldiers listen to Rush. They might come home and vote conservative.That's at the botom of it, isn't it." It might be.

  • Boy, you wingnuts are a little thick, huh?
    Please read this slowly: There is a difference between the soldiers and "the Army."
    You see, the Army is run by evil people and bureaucrats. The Army is the entity (look it up) that is sending soldiers with mental illnesses back into battle. The Army is the entity that is cutting veterans' health care, tried to cut combat pay, tries to cover up war crimes committed by stressed-beyond-the-limits soldiers, doesn't help soldiers' families that are living in poverty, etc.
    Soldiers are very often the victims of the Army. Also, the soldiers aren't stupid -- they know they're being abused by the Army.
    Rightwingers are such slaves to authority that they can't see that criticizing the Army is not the same as criticizing the troops. Rightwingers have a desperate need to salute anything official because it makes them less scared of the world to suck up to the people in charge. Unfortunately, the people now in charge are pretty evil and incompetent. Nevertheless, the rightwinger must salute -- if you don't salute authority, you're a traitor.
    Now of course, it would be like the Army to skew the poll figures in favor of rightwing talk radio; the Army isn't very honest these days, and it punishes any soldiers who say anything that isn't rightwing. The Army needs its soldiers to be saluting machines, because if too many of them start to think for themselves -- the way Americans often do -- the Army will fall apart and all those rightwing bureaucrats in uniform will get scared of the angry soldiers. So, the Army keeps the rightwing talkers and tries to keep out the leftwing talkers, because leftwingers question authority.
    The leftwingers actually support the soldiers as citizens -- you know, not talking down to them, or sucking up to them, but especially not lying to them. That's why rightwingers say that the leftwingers 'hate America' and 'hate the Army' and are 'bad for morale.' The problem is that the truth is bad for morale. Rightwingers are famous for not liking reality when it doesn't agree with them.
    The rightwing talkers don't really care about the soldiers, any more than they really care about Americans who aren't rich. Rightwing talkers like Ins-Hannity and Lush Rimjob only support the Republicans in charge. It's the Republicans who pay them so well. A lot of rightwingers seem to forget that our soldiers are also citizens (the ones who aren't legal or illegal immigrants). They've been sent to die for -- well now, what was it? WMD? Mushroom clouds? Iraqi freedom? To get Saddam Hussein? Somebody should ask Lush what the latest version is.
    A recent poll showed that 70% of out soldiers in Iraq think that Saddam was behind 9/11. It's not true, of course, but the rightwingers need our soldier/citizens to believe that they're dying for a reason other than oil and George Bush's stunted ego. Rightwingers support the Army, but not the troops, and you know it.

    When all you have is liberals debating far-left liberals --- you're not going to get a ton of dissent.

    The Fairness Doctrine simply silenced conservative voices --- which is why the left applauds it so fervently.

    Pimping for this corrupt, immoral bunch of bastards is not supporting the troops.

    Got it.

    They'll be screwed over by this bunch of chicks**i chickenhawks badly enough. A vet that votes Repuke is like a chicken voting for Col Sanders.

    More "if the people knew better, they'd vote for us" mentality, eh?

    Worked well for you thus far. Keep it up.

    Rightwingers are such slaves to authority that they can't see that criticizing the Army is not the same as criticizing the troops.

    Yet when conservatives criticize the state of public education, the left whines that the right is "attacking teachers".

    Funny.

    The Army is the entity that is cutting veterans' health care, tried to cut combat pay, tries to cover up war crimes committed by stressed-beyond-the-limits soldiers, doesn't help soldiers' families that are living in poverty, etc.

    I suppose a tiny sliver of evidence is soon forthcoming.

    Now of course, it would be like the Army to skew the poll figures in favor of rightwing talk radio; the Army isn't very honest these days, and it punishes any soldiers who say anything that isn't rightwing.

    You figured out the conspiracy. GO YOU!!

    The military is actually FULL of people who support a political side that has condemned them for everything while ignoring what their opponents do.

    It's all conservative spin that the military is pro-Republican. That persistent overwhelming support for Republican candidates? A fiction. Dems trying to throw out military ballots in 2000? Never happened.

    Right?

    The Army needs its soldiers to be saluting machines, because if too many of them start to think for themselves -- the way Americans often do -- the Army will fall apart and all those rightwing bureaucrats in uniform will get scared of the angry soldiers.

    Ahh, part of the "pro-frag" set are ye?

    The leftwingers actually support the soldiers as citizens -- you know, not talking down to them, or sucking up to them, but especially not lying to them.

    I seem to remember them condemning toture that never occured. I seem to remember them peddling a story about flushing Korans that never happened.

    Rightwingers are famous for not liking reality when it doesn't agree with them.

    Yes, it's the right who are:
    1) Championing 9/11 conspiracy theories.
    2) Championing theories that elections were stolen.

    Yup, TOTALLY conservative things there.

    The rightwing talkers don't really care about the soldiers, any more than they really care about Americans who aren't rich.

    Yup. Your opponents don't differ from you politically. They are actually EVIL!

    EVIL!!

    They've been sent to die for -- well now, what was it? WMD? Mushroom clouds? Iraqi freedom? To get Saddam Hussein? Somebody should ask Lush what the latest version is.

    If you can't follow multiple reasons for an action, you might not wish to broadcast that fact.

    A recent poll showed that 70% of out soldiers in Iraq think that Saddam was behind 9/11.

    And that poll is...where?

    A link would be lovely.

    Since it reeks of, you know, bullshit and all.

    Rightwingers support the Army, but not the troops, and you know it.

    It's the left who bitches the most about having their patriotism questioned.

    It's the left, PREDOMINATELY, who question other people's patriotism.

    Seems the left has an issue with projection.

    So, honestly, what left wing whackjob site gave you folks your marching orders?

    Because the left kept alternative points of view effectively muzzled. When the left whines about how "divided" America is, they just mean conservatives won't shut up and let the enlightened, progressiveelites enact policy without opposition.

    Cuba and North Korea are totally not "divided" because their socialist governments control the media and all dissent is ruthlessly crushed. That's what the left has in mind when they talk about "ending division."

  • Right wingers are filthy, vile, cowardly sissies. They show contempt for the troops. A soldier to a right winger is a prop in a photo-op to furthur their sick political agenda. The troops are not human nor do they have feelings or a family in the mind of a sick right winger. When troops flip out as a result of GOP war leadership and their failed war plan, lock them away, and try them for murder. The killers are RUMSFELD and CHENEY and BUSH, not the MARINES, liberals get this concept. Right wingers go by the "few bad apples" spew, and chose to lock up the soldiers and let the men who lead them to kill run this country. Right wingers do not support troops. If they did, Cheney and bush and Rumsfeld, would be held accontable for the troops mis-deeds not the troops. Cons could not care how many troops flip out and end up in jail, as long as their is a photo-op and they have their demons with the letter "R" in power.

    If you are such a badass and you think rightwingers are such pussies, then you can come to my town and attempt to "remove me from America." The only thing that will need to be removed is my foot from your ass.

    Open up your profile and allow some incoming E-mail and we'll set it up. Then we'll see just what a "man" you are, and whether or not you will hide behind your nick and throw feces like the simpering howler monkey you are.

  • Right wingers are filthy, vile, cowardly sissies. They show contempt for the troops. A soldier to a right winger is a prop in a photo-op to furthur their sick political agenda. The troops are not human nor do they have feelings or a family in the mind of a sick right winger. When troops flip out as a result of GOP war leadership and their failed war plan, lock them away, and try them for murder.

    So, uh, you calling the soldiers basically murderous robots is how you "support" them, eh?

    The killers are RUMSFELD and CHENEY and BUSH, not the MARINES, liberals get this concept. Right wingers go by the "few bad apples" spew, and chose to lock up the soldiers and let the men who lead them to kill run this country.

    Damn conservatives and that whole "the person who committed the crime should serve the time" thing.

    Right wingers do not support troops.

    If we called them murderous robots, would that be supporting them?

    If they did, Cheney and bush and Rumsfeld, would be held accontable for the troops mis-deeds not the troops.

    Ignoring that --- and this, admittedly, is a technicality --- Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld didn't actually do anything.

    I know, why let reality slow down a witch hunt?

    Cons could not care how many troops flip out and end up in jail, as long as their is a photo-op and they have their demons with the letter "R" in power.

    Yup, soldiers are just robotic killers. Nothing more.

    Leftie compassion is fun.

    Right wingers, must be removed from power
    and be REMOVED FROM AMERICA


    And the authoritarian streak in liberalism rears its head.

    And all you vile TERRORISTS can KISS my 34 year old ass. I'm far from the sissy mama's boy you think I'm. RIGHT WINGERS ARE TERRORISTS. Simple as that, they are KILLING AMERICA.

    Whoa, you're now AGAINST the terrorists? WOO HOO...wait, you're still against Americans and have no problem with the terrorists killing people.

    Thought you might have learned something by now.

  • I find RWW's deranged rants amusing. They make me want to scruff his fuzzy little deluded head.

    And I'm still amused that Nitacci longs for the good ol' daze when someone like Mary Mapes could broadcast a news story based on forged documents without being fact-checked by the right-wing.
