Dem Sen. Stabenow’s conflict of interest

I recently posted - Dem. Sen.: Talk Radio Informs “Incorrectly,” Supports Hearing

The short of it: Michigan Dem. Sen. Debbie Stabenow believes airwaves are "dominated by one view" that "overwhelms people's opinions -- and, unfortunately, incorrectly." According to Stabenow, the bad guys are "right-wing conservative talk hosts." She wants government hearings and “a standard.”

An Anon commenter let me know Stabenow’s husband is Tom Athans, a career liberal talks radio executive who was formally a head honcho at the failed liberal talk radio Air America network.

For more about Athans, who a while back was caught up in a Detroit prostitution ring sting, read here.

My thanks to the Anon for the heads up.

I've updated the "Dem. Sen.:Talk Radio ...." post to include the information about Athans ties to liberal talk radio and the conflict of interests it represents for Stabanow.

More soon.
