Beyond Benghazi: How The U.S. Embassy Helped Stave Off Disaster In Liberia
Huffington Post - 21 days
We’re beyond ironic. After years of grandstanding and bashing the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton for security and response lapses implicated in the death of a U.S. Ambassador and others in Benghazi, the Republicans are obviously willing to make embassy security a crass political bargaining chip.  But we shouldn’t really be surprised. They‘ve done this before. In a new book, The Embassy: A Story of War and Diplomacy, Dante Paradiso depicts in graphic detail the attempts of an embassy team, aid workers and peacekeepers to help stave off catastrophe in Liberia as the state, ruled by the infamous Charles Taylor, he of “blood diamond” lore, collapses around them.  When U.S. Ambassador John W. Blaney refused to close the embassy after the first of three rebel attacks on the capital, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld appears to have pulled out augmented security and delayed the deployment of a requested Marine Fleet Antiterrorism Support Team to force the Ambassador to lowe ...

Two Books That Will Bring You Greater Truth About Our Politics Than Our Elite Media
Huffington Post - 5 months
In a political season in which we might be tempted to look for signs we’re not all just trapped in an electoral version of The Truman Show or sleeping in restraints in a Matrix test-tube, the only thing that might succeed in taking us away from this fiction is better fiction. I know I’ve needed it to get through an election season with a scrub-brush topped, clementine-colored life-form in position to actually be elected president if Hillary Clinton stumbles during the debates, or if someone waves shiny objects in the faces of political reporters. With that in mind ― and to avoid an oxygen mask ― I’ve been living on political novels, and I’m here to perform a public service by telling you about two exciting political thrillers that will better inform you than our current political coverage and take your mind off the madness. In both cases, the writers are steeped in the worlds of law, politics, and all that comes with both, from understanding the corporate corruption of our democracy ...

How An Abused Pit Bull Went On To Charm The Pants Off A Rock Star
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Stephanie Miller loves Rick Springfield, and Rick Springfield loves dogs. So when the Australian rock star was coming to Charleston, South Carolina, recently, Miller figured: why not see if he'd like to meet the city's most beloved pooch, while he's in town performing? We're referring, of course, to the pit bull named Caitlyn who was discovered with her mouth duct taped shut back in May -- and has gone on to become an incredible, inspiring story of hope and love. "I contacted Rick and he said he would love to meet her," said Miller, who volunteers with the Charleston Animal Society -- the shelter that's nurtured this good dog to health.   Call her Rickie's girl: From this Facebook post, it appears Springfield really enjoyed getting to know Caitlyn. (Though he could only get so much of her -- Caitlyn's still in foster care, and not yet available for adoption, since her alleged abuser's trial has not yet been completed.)

  • 2014
    Age 52
    The 2014 Talkers Heavy Hundred list ranked Stephanie Miller as the 22nd most important radio talk show host in the United States.
    More Details Hide Details In 2006, Miller had numerous appearances on several cable news shows, such as Larry King Live, to represent the progressive political point of view. From April 30, 2007 to May 2, 2007, Miller filled in for the recently fired Don Imus on MSNBC's 6AM–9AM ET time slot. Miller and her on-air staff received generally favorable reviews for their appearance. A fan petition was started to make the show the permanent replacement for the Imus MSNBC show. Joe Scarborough's show Morning Joe has now taken over this time slot. More recently, Miller's Sexy Liberal Comedy Tour has toured the country to very high acclaim. Miller with regular cast members Hal Sparks, John Fugelsang, and other special guests brings together three “liberal comedians” for an evening of liberal humor and comment. A volume 1 (CD or MP3) of the tour is available online.
    The show moved to Free Speech TV on January 6, 2014 after a successful Indiegogo campaign by both Miller and Free Speech to raise the money needed to buy equipment and produce the TV side of the show.

This decision has provoked controversy, however, as many listeners were upset by the decision. After only two weeks off the air in that time slot, Miller's show was reinstated to the full three hours due to the large volume of correspondence sent to Green 960 from its listeners. In November 2009, it was announced on the air that the show was soon to "go bi," meaning bicoastal.
  • 2007
