Satirist John Breneman Delves Deep into Cyberspace

What’s in store for Alaska Governor Sarah Palin after she resigns her seat on July 26?

“She plans to take a brief vacation, shooting media jackals from an airplane.

John: He reports, he derides.

John: He reports, he derides.

“Then she may hit the paid-speaker circuit with her inane ability to spout random strings of words that underscore her refreshing lack of knowledge and experience.”

That according to “Fox News anchor puppet Deuce Murdoch,” the latest incarnation of BlogTalkRadio’s resident humorist John Breneman.

The Boston Herald blogger, who, as primary alter ego Reid Page, anchor of the 13 O’Clock News, contributes weekly reports to BTR’s Game On!, recently launched a stand-alone Humor Gazette report here on the network.

Daily Show-like in their ability to spin headline news into biting satire, John’s dispatches have in recent weeks tackled topics ranging from health-care reform to Twitter to U.S. Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor to Michael Jackson tributes.

CAPTION: Humor Gazette headlines: All the news that's fit to kid.

The Humor Gazette: All the news that's fit to kid.

And so that he’s got the full complement of media covered, the veteran journalist also produces a TV version of the Humor Gazette, which is streamed on YouTube.

‘Game On!’ Commentators Pull No Punches on BlogTalkRadio’s Hot New Political Show

Had enough of fat-cat Fortune 500 execs crying poverty after running their companies into the ground – then having the gall to asked Uncle Sam for multi-billion-dollar bailout packages?

John: Jabs at "Joe the Plumber."

Fed up with psychopathic hedge-fund managers who swindle their clients out of $50 billion?

Can’t stand the thought of another one of America’s governors getting caught, proverbially or literally, with his pants down?

Can't abide Motown madness.

Shomari: Can't abide Motown madness.

Then have we got a trio of acid- tongued commentators for you!

Tonight on Game On! with Ross and McLaughlin, Boston Herald writer/editor John Breneman and Shomari McKenzie of WKXN Radio in Montgomery, Ala., bring you their weekly “Satirical Soapbox” segments.

Shomari takes on the “poor-mouthing” Big Three automakers, and John answers the question, “Whatever happened to ‘Joe the Plumber?’” – while also revealing who’ll be replacing the departing Alan Colmes on Fox New Channel’s Hannity & Colmes.


Chad: Don't ignore real news.

Chad Everson, meanwhile – whose change-loathing “Grizzly Growl” reports focus on issues that are paid scant attention by the national media – brings you the true story of a heroic Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper.

Hosted by Kevin Ross and David McLaughlin – winners of FOX News Radio’s Battle of the Blog Talkers competition – Game On! delivers a spirited West Coast-East Coast, conservative-liberal, black-white take on the week’s most provocative political issues.

‘Game On!’ America’s Top Blog Talkers Lead the Charge for Change

With next month’s inauguration of hoops-shooting Barack Obama comes a new era in American history.

And with it, a new chapter in talk-radio history – one in which conservative-dominated dials must adapt to our nation’s voracious appetite for change.


But by that time, BlogTalkRadio will be ready. Because tonight at 8 p.m. ET we’re getting a jump on the changing of the guard with the launch of Game On!.

John: Brash Beantown wag.


Shomari: Wicked D.C. wit.

Hosted by Kevin Ross – an African-American Republican from Los Angeles – and David McLaughlin – a white Democrat from outside Atlanta – the hour-long show features a spirited West Coast- East Coast, conservative-liberal, black-white take on the week’s most provocative political issues.

Kevin and David began making waves in October by taking top honors in FOX News Radio’s Battle of the Blog Talkers, a tournament to select America’s best blog talkers from each side of the political spectrum. Their prize?  A weeklong gig co-hosting FOX Across America with Spencer Hughes.

Regular Game On! commentators include Boston-based John Breneman of the Boston Herald, and Washington, D.C.-based Shomari McKenzie of WKXN Radio in Montgomery, Ala. – who’ll be weighing in with “Satirical Soapbox” reports.  These devilish diatribes tip their hats to Andy Rooney while kicking things up a notch.

Our man in middle America.

Chad: Change THIS.

Also, Princeton, Minn.-based Chad Everson of BlogTalkRadio’s Grizzly Groundswell – a Battle of the Blog Talkers finalist – focuses on issues concerning middle America, with his conserv- ative-as-ever “Grizzly Growl” reports.

Plus, newsmaker guests from inside and out of the Beltway.

And last but not least, live listener chats, calls and (dare we say) confrontations.
