Just when I thought I could lay off Taylor Marsh...
Talk radio personality (not) Taylor Marsh is begging her intellectually bankrupt, pro-Monster mini fan club to send emails to the folks at Air America and XM satellite radio. She's hoping that a wave of "please put Taylor on the radio" missives will somehow convince the network to give her a show.
Now, as you may remember from this little bio of Taylor Marsh, she portrays herself as a radio host when, in reality, she is a Hill-shill podcaster whose only actual on-air experience consists of buying time on a Nevada vanity station in hopes of convincing someone she deserves mic time. That experiment, obviously, failed.
I'm doing my part to keep the streak of Marsh radio disappointment alive.
I'm following Taylor's advice. I'm going to write a little bit to Air American and XM. I doubt my sentiments are the ones she had in mind when she hit "publish" on her Begging for Airtime post, though.
You, wise reader may want to send an email to the network, too. Let them know how you feel about Ms. Marsh's punditry talents. Tell Air America about her "progressive" outlook. Let XM know what you think about her loyal fan base (need material? check this out).
Please note that I'm not saying you should diss Marsh because she is unqualified. I'm not saying she should stay an off-air personality because her "book" was published by a vanity press in exchange for cash. I'm not arguing that you should advise AA and XM that writing personal ad hints for an alt weekly doesn't constitute legitimate journalistic experience. Nope.
I personally think her resume-inflation and telling of tall tales is bothersome, but that (alone) is certainly no reason to keep her away from all live microphones. The reason is because she writes crazy things, has created and encourages a community of Hillzombies who say remarkably distasteful things and lacks the analytical skills to do a good job. The "make believe" thing is mere icing on a cake of crap.
You can contact Air America here.
You can contact XM here.
Wondering about the cartoons? Here's why I don't use real photos of Ms. Marsh.
