Lexington attorney wants UK games off “conservative” radio stations

Richard F. Dawahare wants University of Kentucky games pulled from WLAP, the home of all things Wildcats and KSR’s radio shows (morning, pregame and postgame) in Lexington.

Dawahare, an attorney, writes, “It is no secret that these stations are exclusive provinces of conservative ideology. They spew propaganda with a breathtaking lack of regard for truth and with a pervasive tone of contempt and ridicule for those with a different perspective.”

Dawahare missed one important fact here: Matt Jones isn’t spewing conservative ideology, and I’m not sure anyone is on WLAP more than Matt Jones during basketball and football seasons. Not to mention, Ryan Lemond, who may be second to Matt in hours logged on WLAP’s airwaves, would rather take another rabid dog bite than talk politics.

But Dawahare insists the games must be removed from our favorite Lexington radio station. He wants them pulled from WHAS in Louisville, too.

We cannot continue to allow our beloved Cats and Cards to be part of any entity that perpetuates this culture,” he wrote in the Herald-Leader. “When enough of us insist that we use our schools to further their foundational ideals – the pursuit of truth and the betterment of our world – change will come.”

It appears Dawahare adopted our “Facts are optional” mantra here.

      Because he knows the Republican party is the party of FASCISTS, and the blowhards who spew this venom and lies all day should not be associated our university broadcasts.

      Definition of Fascism:
      An authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.

      Sounds EXACTLY like the Republican party.

      Another definition of fascism (Merriam-Webster online): a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.

      Hmm, that one sounds a lot like the Democrat party.

      The fact is…both parties are shills for big business.
      The 1% wants the masses to fight over social issues like gay marriage, abortion, flag waving, and free cell phones while they simply rake us all over the coals.
      All politicians are pawns.
      The middle class will continue to be squeezed, while the fat cats keep stirring the pot.
      Six media companies control over 90% of everything we see and hear.
      Clear channel (now iHeartRadio) owns over 1200 radio stations…nearly ALL Fox News affiliates.
      Only further consolidation will continue until all media is owned by a few big multinational corporations that truly do not give a crap about you and I.

      Of course, “Reality Bites”, the exact opposite is true. The Republican Party isn’t doing much in the way of being even remotely aggressive, let alone trying to silence opposition. The same cannot be said for some liberals, however, who shout “hate!” “bigotry!”, etc. for merely disagreeing with them on any given issue to try to smear and silence the opposition vs. providing a rational, intellectual argument as a counterpoint.

The “government” is just as much Republican as it is Democratic (probably leans right actually because of the 5 conservatives on the Supreme Court) so can we please not use “Government” to mean “Liberal”?

  29. DevilsAdvocate
    2:06 pm July 7, 2015 Permalink

    To be fair, Dawahare is right that there is a lot of conservative propaganda spewed out at other times during the day on that station. Thus, he is not saying “KSR spews conservative propaganda,” but instead, “Let’s get UK stuff off of this otherwise conservative radio station.” This is why Drew’s post was a bit imprudent.

    We get it… Neither Matt Jones, Ryan Lemond, nor Drew Franklin is “Spewing conservative ideology.” Frankly, none of the UK related shows do. However, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Shaun Hannity all certainly do.

    As such, I believe Mr. Dawahare is saying pull the UK stuff from this station, so we don’t coincidentally further the conservative message pushed out at other times of the day on that station. He didn’t say, “Make KSR a subsection of Mother Jones or Salon!” Moreover, he didn’t say “KSR pushes a conservative bias.”

    He is likely under the impression that KSR could be picked up by a more neutral radio station in town, which I doubt any of us know the actual plausibility of. Thus, put your pitchforks down, and just take a chill pill. No one is calling for our precious KSR’s head, just asking that a Commonwealth-funded University assist in furthering a station which predominantly airs conservative radio.

    I realize this reply was likely the biggest waste of time I will have all week, but I thought it was necessary to try and calm you down, before you blame this on Obama, a la Chester. Don’t let your Kentucky fandom instincts get the best of you. Just think it through.

    • DevilsAdvocate
      2:41 pm July 7, 2015 Permalink

      Again, I don’t think you fully comprehend the underlying argument. UK is a state-funded school. UK brings in a ton of money. That money will then go to the radio station. The radio station (which is conservative in nature) then uses that money to promote their conservative message with Limbaugh, Hannity, etc. Thus, through a direct chain, UK is furthering the conservative message these stations put out through the tax-payers dollar.

      That being said, it is no wonder why a liberal might have a problem with that, as a portion of his very own state taxes are going directly to UK and as a result, this radio station. There is no doubt Dawahare’s argument is flawed, but most people in this thread have not actually read the constitution thoroughly enough to understand what his intended argument boils down to. I would assume one of those people is Drew Franklin, or he would have put a little more thought into his post before writing it.

      The very fact many people reacted this way furthers the point that they are incapable of using “their own thinking” (???). Instead they just read the message from the KSR gods, grab their pitchfork and run to defend their beloved cats. His argument has little to do with liberal vs. conservative, but more to do with the U.S. Constitution, and if you read it, you would understand this. Dawahare just does a bad job of arguing his opinion (even though he’s a lawyer).

      Hey DA… How about we put this up to a democratic vote… Or do you and mr.

    • CATandMONKEY
      3:01 pm July 7, 2015 Permalink

      The vote as to which stations are popular is strictly market based. Air America is not popular, anywhere. NPR is quite popular in many markets…and is the most popular “liberal ” radio outlet available.

      Despite my disdain for Barrister Dawahare, NPR receives about 80% of my radio – listening time. The remainder goes to KSR and other sports shows.

      Devil, there is no place in the Constitution that states that liberal and conservative view points deserve equal air time, which seems to be what you imply. Please note above, where I spend the majority of my listening time….Oh, and I am a contributing member of two different NPR affiliates, yet have zero problem with UK games being aired on “conservative “stations.



    • KyKid
      3:18 pm July 7, 2015 Permalink

      DA, So who would you suggest make the determination as to what stations might be appropriate for a state-funded University activity? How about high school games for public schools? Where does it end and who becomes the czar? I would think any station that has any talk radio programs at all would have to be excluded because they might carry something that promotes a different ideology than this czar. What a slippery slope….



    • DevilsAdvocate
      3:25 pm July 7, 2015 Permalink

      BttB, like it all you want, and I’m glad you do and that you have that option. However, the University of Kentucky should not support it anymore than it does, oh, say NPR (I don’t know what the liberal stations are in Lexington/Louisville). So, I am not saying move the games to NPR too, just that they would likely be better placed on a sports only-type station (like they are in many other larger markets). An otherwise conservative OR liberal talk radio station is not the place for a state university’s games…

      C&M, obviously there is no such provision within the Constitution. However, with UK being a public university that has chosen a predominantly conservative radio station to essentially fund, I see there being an issue. If I were a democrat in Kentucky (I’m not), I likely wouldn’t want my tax dollars going to support a conservative message, which is what happens when UK supports that station.

      I would have to see the revenue each program brings in for the stateion, but would be willing to bet the UK-related portion makes up a good portion of it. So while that does not mean liberal radio is entitled to anything to make it even, I see there being a problem with a public university essentially funding a conservative radio station. I don’t think it should shut down, but I also believe it should survive independently (sans any minor government funding most non-profit radio stations receive) without direct or proximate support from a public university.

      But again… Just playing Devil’s Advocate, because few others do. Overall, Go Cats.

      KYKid, not a lawyer in Kentucky, so don’t know what jurisdictional issues may exist. However, I believe this is the perfect type of issue for the courts of Kentucky to decide, as they will have the best understanding of the US and State Constitution. I do not believe this should not be a political issue determined by congress, as it should not be made a political selling point for November.

      High school games for public schools should likely be placed on some form of non-profit public access channel, like they are in many other states. These are often funded by the states and open to anyone who can avoid violating FCC rules. Otherwise, they can be placed on a “Sports Only” type channel that is not in any way affiliated with a political party.

      Thus, your question is easily answered… It really all ends the minute the University stops funding politically based stations (liberal OR conservative), and becomes neutral. Therefore, it is not a slippery slope.

      Have you listened to say, ESPN radio in other cities? Most ads are for Jimmy Johns, Rogaine, and Debt Solutions… Not Rush Limbaugh or Steven Colbert. The point is to be neutral when state funding is at issue, and not support one party over the other, and UK (consciously or not) is not being neutral at this moment in time.

      Moreover, your concern of advertisements would likely be incidental to the programming. Therefore, that is not the issue. The issue here is that nearly all programming that is not UK-Related is conservative in nature, not incidentally, but deliberately. If there was any liberal programming, I don’t think this would be up for discussion.



    • KyKid
      4:39 pm July 7, 2015 Permalink

      I believe the courts have more pressing issues to attend to rather than deciding what stations are eligible to broadcast basketball games. Besides, what criteria would they use?

      I think it should be to the highest bidder, whomever that may be. Agree that an all sports station would be best, but if you travel much you know that in many locations in our fine state there are only a handful of stations that you can get and all sports station is not an option.



    • DevilsAdvocate
      5:00 pm July 7, 2015 Permalink

      KyKid, the first statement alone ensures that you do not understand the argument being made. This is more than just deciding what station can broadcast sports. This is whether or not it is appropriate for a state funded university to financially support and essentially support a radio station, which is conservatively based.

      Your second point (though it takes a while to get to) is more on point. That this station may be the best medium for UK Sports to reach all counties, in which case, the Court would likely rule in favor of UK remaining on these stations. However, there is likely a way to make the games accessible to all Kentuckians, without providing millions of dollars in revenue to a conservative radio station, and therefore may be considered unconstitutional.

      The argument is not “Who cares what channel the game is on as long as it’s played.” It’s, “Should a state funded university be able to financially promote and support one political party over the other.” The answer to the latter should likely be no, unless it is the only available medium.

      in a literal sense as you are spewing complete misinformation. Lies if I’m not generous. No university funding EVER supports any radio affiliate. In fact, quite the opposite. Every radio affiliate is a part of a bidding process which includes not only the amount of money a media organization is willing to pay for the rights to games, etc. but also involves establishing its capability to disseminate the brand appropriately on a wide scale and to the athletic department’s liking. Setting aside the technical requirements for a winning bid let’s focus on the financial aspect. If a radio station, or group of radio stations as is the case, is PAYING the athletics department (note: NOT the university) for the right to broadcast games how exactly do university funds flow “directly” to said radio stations? Advertiser dollars and ONLY advertiser dollars flow to radio stations in this scenario. As the athletics department has the product being sold it isn’t paying for anything. It’s also important to make a distinction between the University of Kentucky and its athletics department. That reason being that the athletics department at UK is entirely self-supporting and manages to be so largely by selling broadcast rights for its sporting events. More specifically basketball and football. In an effort to support less financially viable sports the athletics department actually requires additional coverage of these less popular sports. That’s neither here nor there I suppose. Ultimately the point is NO university dollars go to the athletics department let alone any radio affiliate. Setting all of that aside the obvious issue at hand is who decides what radio station format and what content is appropriate for an affiliate? How exactly is that objectively done? Dawahare is either being dangerously naive as to the reality that no man has the wisdom or fairness to accomplish such a task and that such a format is not even able to be created in the first place OR the more likely scenario in which Dawahare has the galling hubris to believe that his beliefs are the only right beliefs for any man. If the latter be the case may God have mercy on his soul.

If you would have read my post you would see that I simply don’t want someone else censoring or deciding what is appropriate for me to hear. If I don’t like it, I can ignore it or change the channel. If I am intrigued by something and want to validate, I know how to do this. No one ‘feeds me’ anything I don’t want to eat. If they played communist commercials I would ignore them.

I recognize that they have a right to pump out whatever they want, and you have a right to change the channel, but the thing that most people are missing on this comment thread is that the University has a right (arguably a responsibility) to go elsewhere with its business.

I suppose you could go to music only stations. I just hate everything offending so many people. I really don’t think what type of station the game is on will affect anyone’s life choices.

    DevilsAdvocate above really got somewhere. Liberals have every right to oppose the University providing cash to a right-wing radio network.

    But I would take it a step farther and say that any university (UK or UL in this case) must stand by its black, Hispanic, female, and LGBTQ students. They are vibrant, tuition-paying, accolade-bringing parts of the campus. Thus to promote a station that spews anti-gay, anti-reproductive-rights, racist filth is tantamount to disregarding the dignity of well over half the student body.

Implying that any student NOT identified in the poster’s designated groups are NOT “vibrant, tuition paying, accolade-bringing parts of the campus” – his (or her) words. Honestly, you are not arguing with a conservative in this post. I was just asking for clarification.

      It seemed you were implying that if the University stepped in to stop the arguable de facto discrimination against its minorities, women, LGBT, religious minorities, etc, that would mean that straight white Christian males would automatically be discriminated against. That is where I saw an appeal to “reverse discrimination.”

      It is the ultimately the University’s choice where to broadcast its sports–I merely suggest that the University should err on the side of protecting the usual targets of bigotry rather than the privileged.

We must protect the fragile minds of the public who might be swayed by something they hear because they have no capacity to think for themselves.

      I could care less what station the UK games are on as long as it comes in clearly. I can change the station any time I want. And for the record I don’t listen to any talk radio, but I sure don’t want people like you trying to control everything.

      I simply believe in equal rights for ALL. Unfortunately, our society, at both ends of the spectrum, believes that polarizing us against each other is the best course. I will always identify as independent and as such, will not kotow to the party-line of either extreme, but please, do not ever mistake that position as” moderate”.

      The university should support the rights of minorities, gays, lesbians, straights, blacks, whites, latinos, Albanians, Irish, Japanese, liberals, conservatives, moderates, Christians, Muslims, Jews, Agnostics, atheists, and Zoroastrians with complete equality…not at the expense of any of the above named, or unintentionally not mentioned groups. Human rights for one group should NEVER be at the expense of another, lest the pendulum swings too far in the other direction and an historically “privileged ” class becomes a new, persecuted class. That would be antithetical to any ideology that currently seeks equality.

    There’s only one reason to want to restrict or draw attention away from an opposing point of view. Mr. Dawahare does not believe his side is capable of winning a fair debate with the other side based on the facts.

    This explains why the left has become so extreme lately about trying to remove anything from society that they disagree with. There is apparently no room for diversity in the minds of the left more and more because they think only those who believe exactly like them have a right to be heard. It’s sad that Americans don’t have the same freedoms we had when I was growing up. It’s a dark time for those who believe in truth, justice and freedom.

      You must not watch the news. Bakers and florists being persecuted by the state and losing their homes because they refuse to participate in services that they are forbidden by Christianity from participating in. This despite the First Amendment directly banning any laws persecuting people for their faith. Faked charges of “discrimination” used to practice the kind of REAL discrimination against the wrongly accused. All because of rabid bigots who get off on persecuting Christians.



    • 8 god

      Yes, I have heard about those cases. Unfortunately for the far right, the judiciary has held that–surprise–denying a couple service strictly because they are not straight violates equal protection.

      I see your argument. In your own home, you can refuse to host anyone who “violates” your faith, including LGBT citizens if you wish. But when you open a business to the public you cannot discriminate. That’s what the Supreme Court says, not what the liberal media or Obama say. Simply put, discrimination is discrimination, whether on religious grounds or not. The good news is, that same baker or florist could not reasonably deny you service simply because you are Christian! Equal protection indeed works both ways, and that is the beauty of the American government.

      Those who study history know that fascism is a flavor of socialism. Benito Mussolini was the father of fascism as we know it, and his Italian fascism was the model for large parts of Roosevelt’s “New Deal”, as two of the principle architects were avowed fascists. FDR himself publicly praised Mussolini’s fascist policies. Progressives in America were equivalent to fascists in Italy.

      Of course, after Mussolini allied with Hitler, then it became no longer a good thing to call yourself a fascist or a progressive, so those people began calling themselves liberal instead, even though that term had always described politics opposite to theirs (what we now call CLASSICAL liberalism, or libertarianism, which is what Thomas Jefferson and James Madison were).

    Interesting thread. Even the moronic, false history lessons are at least revealing. Richard Dawahare does have a point; you can’t listen to a UK game on the radio without being subjected to the promos for Rush and the other far-right radio entertainers. WLAP is in no way nuanced in its programming. Anyone who disagrees with that vantage point would be offended that our public university supports it. All of those who have spewed venom towards Mr. Dawahare, I suggest you read two books by John Dean, entitled “Conservatives Without Conscience” and “Broken Government.” John Dean — yes, the Watergate John Dean — proudly calls himself a “Goldwater Conservative,” but since 2000, he has largely left the Republican Party because it’s dominated by what HE calls far-right, authoritarian, radicals. His research caused him to conclude that there isn’t any equivalent on the far left — no significant left talk radio, no FOX News of the left — because, he says, there isn’t any equivalent audience on the left for that. To the extent that Government is effed up, to the extent that there’s no such thing as civil, rational discourse in our country, one of conservatism’s favorite sons says that the blame for it goes to the radicalization of the far right.

    Mr. Dawahare: Willie Dawahare has just rolled over in his grave. He would never spout such crap as you have done. Get real…..Let UK decide where to have the games broadcast. They have done just fine for many years. As the old saying goes…..if you don’t like it, don’t listen.

    O…M…G…

    Now THIS ladies and gentlemen…THIS…is just one of the thousands of examples of the liberal brainwashing of America…

    These poor victims actually believe they are “right” people??!!??!!

    And THAT is some seriously frightening stuff…

    Propaganda?

    How about some TRUTH my friend…

    The media in this country as founded were to be a “watchdog” for us the people…

    Today? Nothing but a lapdog for the far left ideology and government…

    I feel as if today I am virtually living in a country that very closely resembles what was described to me as the Soviet Union and as Communism when I was educated…1971-1977 Elementary…1977-1980 Junior High…known as “Middle School” today…and 1980-1983 High School…then UK from 1983 through 1987…and THERE is where I first ran into the “Revisionist” “version” of America and America’s history and World History as well…

    This is so scary folks…so frightening…and all of these people seem to be totally “onboard” with all of the lies being spewed daily…

    It would be hilarious if it were not so horrific…

    I have heard this said of drug addicts…

    But it so aptly applies to “liberals”…Socialists….Marxists…Communists…Elinsky-ites…call it what you will…all the same…we were all warned in the 1950’s…that would be taken over from withing without a shot being fired…and all in the name of “Liberalism”…Google it…

    And so…someone spouts all of this diatribe…blind as a bat obviously…

    And those of us who believe in America…who Believe in the Constitution and The Bill of Rights…those of us who believe in law and order and a civilized society…

    Suddenly it is WE who are the “bad” guys?

    At least we believe in freedom and in individual rights and liberty…

    And at least we do possess a moral compass that guides us NOT to LIE and NOT to BREAK THE LAW…

    Libs? Their doctrine says that lies are fine…that ignoring some laws while enforcing others is just “fine”…

    Their doctrine says that the “end justifies the means”…whatever the means may be…lying to the people…deception…no matter and no worries to them…

    Their view of “the people”?

    Stupid. Ignorant. Unable to make quality life choices on our own.

    They view themselves as the enlightened ones…who “know better”than all of the rest of us…

    They laugh and mock all of those who are stupid enough to vote for them and fall for their lies…

    Trust me…they do…

    They portray themselves as those who truly “care” for the people…who are “kind” and “compassionate”…

    while behind closed doors they laugh and mock those who are so stupid and dumb and gullible enough to actually vote them into power…

    It is unreal just how crazy and insane it has become…

    They say what?

    UP…is DOWN…

    BLACK…is WHITE…

    BAD…is GOOD…

    and WRONG…is RIGHT…

    There are no absolutes…

    Not in their world…

    But ask yourself this?

    Why is it that everything they do and all of their policies are destructive to America???

    Why is it?

    Is not our President supposed to represent us by promoting and supporting America and it’s citizens?

    Why does our President do the complete opposite?

    Why?

    Oh…you buy into all of their America is “bad” nonsense, do you?

    Oh, believe me…I can shoot down all of those lies too…

    The communists came up with a plan in the 50’s…to infiltrate our educational system and the mass media system…so that the small minority would seem as if it were the majority…and all of the while spewing their propaganda and their lies…

    I am just tired and have to work tomorrow…yes…work…the backbone of America…

    You may wanna try it some time…

    What you are witnessing in these past 6 or 7 years is the all out effort to destroy America…

    And the sheeple follow…

    It all sickens me to the very core…

    BOOM!

      Some astute observations. It’s sad that my kids won’t get to grow up in “the land of the free” the same way I did. That country is now dead and buried. The name is the only thing that remains, sadly. The ideas of Jefferson and Madison, which our country was built upon, have been almost completely abandoned in the name of extremist, reactionary socialism.
