Call me crazy or unhip or some such, but I actually think Alan Colmes' radio show is good. Last night he had the guy from Crook and Liars on (which is one of the best blogs out there, and I shouldn't say this as I'm typing a blog but I don't even like blogs!). He also recently had Alex Jones on, and he's had many other interesting guests that most liberal or conservative broadcasters do not host. Also, I find it refreshing how many conservative callers he has; and he makes a valiant effort every time to set them straight.

I'm aware of the whole Fox News Liberal thing, but I don't think this is accurate about Alan. True, he's in the belly of the beast, but I think that's a good thing (of course I have no idea what's going on behind the scenes, I haven't even seen Outfoxed). I could be malinformed because I never watch Hannity and Colmes (can't stand Hannity), but Alan does a good job on his radio program. He argues a liberal/progressive perspective, and while I'm not sure I'd call him an independent thinker, I don't think he follows the Democratic Party line either.
