JERRY UNHINGED?

Mysterious Blog Posts Reveal Anger





Has Jerry Springer been lashing out at Air America Radio?

Based on comments left on his Springer On The Radio blog last night, it sure looks that way. Included are predictions that the liberal talk radio network, funded by high- profile "progressive" backers, will soon fail.

As we've noted over the past several days, it appears that Jerry's radio show has been cancelled by Air America Radio, even if no official word has yet been given. But the little- known Sam Seder, until now an evening talker there, has indicated that the timeslot will soon be his.

On August 9th, your Radio Equalizer first reported on Springer's likely demise from the network's schedule, but in recent days, turmoil has spread across the entire network's lineup. After an apparent (but clearly unsuccessful) push to remain with the operation, Jerry seems to be the odd man out.


So far, Jerry has said nothing in public. Or has he?

Ever- observant Radio Equalizer reader Colby spotted these comments left on Springer's blog Thursday evening:


AAR Blogs

Do you think the blogs will survive after AAR goes belly up? I mean, you really don't need the radio programs to keep the blogs alive. This blogging stuff is kinda fun!

When not IF

Even Bill Gates wouldn't pour unending funds into an operation that looses as much cash as AAR. I'm guessing its over by January. Drobny, Glaser, et al. with try another model and quit funding AAR.

You're sounding a little bitter there Jerry. Heard about the Sam Seder thing huh?

From earlier Thursday:


Jene's in Alaska

Jene's the only guy with keys to the computer and he's in the Alaskan wilds so don't expect a daily blog for awhile.

The show's been on life support for awhile and if it weren't for the contract with Clear Channel it would likely be gone.

Of course, the big question is whether or not this is really Jerry Springer, but he'd be crazy to let someone else register to post comments under the Mayor Of Hell's name and on his own website.

Far more likely is that with the show's coming end, Springer is no longer compelled to keep quiet about the situation at Air America Radio.

UPDATE: Colby now wonders if "jerryspringer" might be a faker (but one with a lot of inside information). If that's the case, then why has this person been allowed to impersonate Jerry for months on his own site? Your Radio Equalizer isn't sure what to think, as this seems a bit too blatant to be allowed in plain sight of everyone. Since registration is required to post on the site, one would expect a name like "jerryspringer" to be reserved for the host himself.


Thanks for your continued and vital Radio Equalizer support, via Amazon orders that begin with clicks here, regardless of what you ultimately order!

  • Maloney, you know what a hat tip is?

    Here is the definition from blogossary.com :

    "A hat tip is an acknowledgement to someone (or a website) for bringing something to the blogger’s attention."

    One of the commentators in your last post gave you this tip about Springer and his blog posts. You should of credited him/her in your post.

    I am pointing this because once too often you have patted your back on breaking stories that weren't broken by you.

    Do you know what a "shake-down" is?

    Your fantasy sounds similar to the shake-downs Hollywood executives face on a daily basis. They release a movie and the shake-down artists crawl out from the darkness with claims they were the orignal source of the movie's theme. They try to prove they submitted a similar concept before the movie was released.

    A coincidence does not prove an accusation.

  • Because the Blogger posting system is down at the moment, I'll see if I can post this here instead:

    A Springer producer claims "jerryspringer" isn't the real thing. If so, why have they let this go on for months? Nonetheless, we'll give him the benefit of the doubt and chalk this up to sheer incompetence by those in charge of his site.

    I didn't see the previous comment with a tip on this. You can always send an email to radioequalizer @@@ aol.com.

  • this is actually a comment for Benson, since he's too much of a wimp to allow comments on his page -

    I notice that you refer to the anti-war people as a "fringe". my questions is this - since when did a majority (60% of Americans now)become a fringe? i would LOVE it if you could rationalize that for me.

  • Springer's radio site used to be at springerontheradio.com, which now redirects to AAR's site. The previous site was run with the assistance of mega-idiot Jesse from pandagon.net, but whether he's still working for Jerry is unknown.

    Now, Jerry's blog uses the same software as AAR's other blogs, and given everything else they do I wouldn't be surprised if there are several fun usernames they haven't thought to snag for themselves.

    I also couldn't find this comment at the linked thread, so either my find function isn't working or they've deleted it.

    Maybe the comments were left by Terry Springer, Jerry's eviler twin.
