Mandeville, LA - Here is your daily dose of "Mike if you only did your show the way Rush does it and toed the NeoCon/DeceptiCON line, you'd be a success, email.

Boy it is really you against your listeners lately

You seem to be taking the opposite position of what anyone says- I hear people calling and AGREEING with you and you jump all over them and “you people” in the  audience

There was a discussion on FreeRepublic.com just about this same thing- several people said they hoped Michael Savage came to satellite radio in your time slot

When you are doing the little known history of The Constitution stuff you are THE BEST

But lately you have been jumping all over any caller.

It seems you have forgotten your primary job is to be entertaining and attract and keep an audience.   Cranky and irritable is not a good on-air persona.

Listen to Rush- he is the best at that. Listen to what he SAYS about that.  He is funny AND  entertaining AND enlightening. I laugh out loud AND learn news.  Glenn Beck is enlightening too- and HILARIOUS.  Mark Levin is cranky and irritable but in very amusing ways (“Get off my show I don’t have time for mental patients”)  When I listen to these shows I am ENJOYING it, even when I don’t agree with everything they say.

You are enlightening, but getting less and less funny and entertaining, and getting more bitter and angry at “you people” (your audience)

If you ONLY want to teach you should apply for a job at a college, you are certainly very knowledgeable on this topic, I often wonder if you have an actual PhD in History. (you never said your education, that I am aware of)

Believe it or not I LIKE YOUR SHOW and want to keep you on the air and growing as successful as Rush, Hannity, Levin, etc…. but I don’t think you like criticism or react to CONSTRUCTIVE criticism well.

Lighten up Francis- we got a war to win, against the liberal media whorenalists 5th column.

P.S.  Your music is ….amateurish.  (What is “eh-NER-gy”?  you can’t just reparse words and syllables and put emphasis wherever you like)  it is painful to listen to sometimes

Dear Michael,

If you don't like my "direction" lately than it is YOU who have changed, I have not wavered one millimeter from previous stands or positions. For the record, I actually LIKE what you seem to be so pissed off about. I LIKE confrontation with callers because it elevates the yes man discourse to actual debate, is there a problem with that?

Could any of us, me included, do a better job at all that we do, certainly. The fact that you have written such a long list of grievances tells me that you highly value your own opinion and take on doing things very highly. You can draw your own psychological conclusion as to what that says of your thoughts on my practices were it smilier (which you obviously disapprove of).

I appreciate the effort on my behalf and will work to Improve but I must say, your childish, nitpicking over pronunciation is what is amateurish about this entire episode. "P.S.  Your music is ….amateurish.  (What is “eh-NER-gy”?  you can’t just reparse words and syllables and put emphasis wherever you like)  it is painful to listen to sometimes"

I am posting your letter to my site and Facebook as I type, if you advise me I will not publish your last name.

I will remain then, your humble deviant,

Mike Church
