This is awful. WMAL made a very bad decision here, cutting back a very informative John Batchelor to insert two hours of mostly mindless ranting that's all over the political spectrum. Batchelor has great primary source reporting, especially on overseas news, that you won't hear from ANY news station, as well as excellent book reviews.
Another example of the dumbing down of America.

I agree. Batchelor, while annoying me with BCE instead of BC and AD (leftist plan to purge tradition and Christianity), he often has interesting guests. He’s on my radio now. Very glad, however, that WMAL moved from C2C to the conservative overnight hosts from Texas.

I couldn’t agree more. And let’s just hope the nightly rants from Weiner/Savage will have distinctly short run on WMAL and WABC. Bring back John Bachelor!
In the meantime, my night-time radio listening may switch to Jason Lewis on WBT (1110 kHZ) — at least when he isn’t pre-empted by some Charlotte sports team.
