So who has the better left and right wing talk channels, Sirius or XM? My vote will go to XM. I like Randi Rhodes on America Left (not on Sirius), and I also like hearing Stephanie Miller in the mornings (on Sirius at night). Also, XM doesn't have Lynn Samuels (terrible voice) or Mike Church (arrogant Rush wannabe) on their channels, which is also a plus. This post may be obsolete soon, though, as I bet they will merge the two left and two right wing channels into one channel that is heard on both Sirius and XM soon, possibily even on next Thursday.

No opinion on the right channels but I like America Left better. I know it's all syndicated, but I've heard Alex Bennett (aka Bennett Gordon Schwarzmann) and Lynn Samuels and I can't stand either one. Mark Thompson is alright.

America Left beats Sirius Left and America Right beats Sirius Patriot. America Left has Randi Rhodes and Rachel Maddow and all three hours of Ed Schultz live. Sirius Left is simply awful. All the in-house "talent" sucks. The addition of Mark Thompson was the last straw for me with that channel. I barely listened after that and soon switched to XM. I really hope Sirius doesn't screw over 167. And America Right beats Sirius Patriot because Patriot has that stupid Cam & Company show, which is just about the NRA. Sirius has no conservative talk between 9pm and midnight, because Fox News Talk has Alan Colmes on. Of course, America Right has that weirdo Roy Masters, so that knocks them down a few points.

ideally i would like to see an inhouse channel for liberal and conservative talk and a syndicated channel for liberal and conservative talk. i just don't know where they would find the two additional channels to do that.

Would love to see this happen.

America Left wins because it has a lot of the old Air America talent. And America Right and Sirius Patriot are basically the same thing now for the most part, sans a few idiotic little programs, and the Laura Ingraham show, so America Right wins for having Laura.

Church and Wilkow

I was a dual susbcriber but always felt more at home with XM. I guess if I had to make a choice I would pick XM.

But, the one area where Sirius won out was its exclusive conservative talk. Wilkow and especially Mike Church are so much better than what is out there on terr. radio.

If you heard Hannity, then you heard Limbaugh and you heard Levin. All the same neo-conservative, Republican party line stuff.

Mike Church is a conservative and does not follow the party line. So much better and different.

I hope they add Wilkow and Church to XM.

I agree. I would miss both Wilkow and Church's shows if they were dropped from the lineup.

Glen Beck is not on America Right but on one of the Clear Channel programed channels.

Of all the AM host Laura Ingram is the best.

On a conservative channel I want to hear conservatives not neo-cons and republicans aND Bush apologists .

Not sure I undertand the question. I think Ron Paul conservatives and paleo conservatives would be different from most AM talk hosts.

Most AM talk show hosts are neo-conservatives. Most paleo-conservatives were anti Iraq war and anti imperialistic/interventionist foreign policy.

most paleo conservtives would support a repeal of the new deal policies while neo-conservatives seek to grow government less than liberals.

Wilkow is NOT a paleo-conservative but at least he trys to sound different form the LimbaughhanityLevin show that airs all day on your AM radio.
