Press Release:  Democratic Talk Radio 2010 Heroes and Villains Awards

For more information, please contact Stephen Crockett at 443-907-2367 or Email address removed

This year we had great difficulty in making our selections. We had multiple winners in both categories.  We could have given many more awards but finally narrowed it down to just these few.

Heroes are former Congressman Alan Grayson (D-FL) and former MSNBC commentator Keith Olbermann. Both won because they routinely spoke truth to power even when it was unpopular.

 Grayson was targeted by huge amounts of corporate and Far Right money in the 2010 elections because of his honesty. He has not gone silently into the night. Like the true hero he remains, we can count on Alan Grayson to continue speaking out on behalf of working Americans being abused by corporations and the super wealthy interests who control the Republicans in Congress and state governments around the nation.

Many of us learned about Grayson's efforts on the cable news commentary program run hosted by Keith Olbermann. In the darkest days of the Bush Administration, Olbermann was really the only voice on TV willing to expose and condemn the creeping fascism of the Republican Right. He defended the American Dream when nearly everyone else was fearful and silent.

Democratic talk Radio hopes he will quickly return to our television screens. American Democracy needs Keith Olbermann.

While nearly every Republican in Congress qualifies for the DTR 2010 Villain Award along with Fox News, the Koch brothers and the Tea Party movement, the winners are the 5 Supreme Injustices on the Supreme Court. They are Alito, Scalia, Thomas, Roberts and Kennedy.

With their crazy and evil Citizens United ruling, they created out of thin air the greatest legal/political threat to our American Dream that has ever existed. They have ruled that corporations are people with the ability to spend unlimited amounts of shareholder money to influence politics. They did not even require in the ruling that shareholders must approve the way is spent or the amount of money by corporate executives.

Corporate executives run corporations. Corporations are organizations of money not people. Corporations do not die like all people do.

The 5 Injustices deserve to be impeached for abuse of office. Since corporations were able to buy Congress in the last elections because of the Citizens United ruling, this will not happen this year if ever. The best we can do is give them our Democratic Talk Radio 2010 Villain of the Year Award.
