Open call for activists to hold right wing talk show hosts accountable

What we did to demote Glenn Beck and disempower Limbaugh on a national level we can do on a more local level. Email localmediamonitor@gmail.com to get involved. Let's do this. Campaign in process against wingnut Roger Hedgecock, who here blames the massacre at Newtown, CT on "liberals" and "political correctness".

2. Advertisement for talk show hosts..I wrote for fun a while back.

Plenty of Jobs Available

Looking for income in this tough economy? Consider the opportunities available in right-wing talk radio!

Some may hesitate, thinking, “You gotta know things and tell the truth.” Please! Do not let this career killing idea stop you! Lack of truth has not hampered Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly or thousands of others just like them. In fact, in the case of Glenn Beck, a total disconnect from reality has proven to be a real asset!

It's a simple job. If someone questions the war in Iraq, accuse the caller of “waving the white flag of surrender.” If a caller is concerned about the unemployed, the sick or the disabled, call it “nanny state mentality.” Taxes on the richest few are always “class warfare," any business regulation is “socialism” and remember; George Bush was “firm and self-confident” while Barack Obama is “divisive and narcissistic.”

With difficult callers, express your moral outrage and denounce them as “divisive and liberal.” Do this only after you have first hung up on them, of course.

Likewise, you will find your audience growing if you can weave in something about Christian values and the principles of the Founding Fathers as you ridicule the poor and advocate for more wars and torture.

Be creative! Let fear be your ally! With a black man, whose middle name is 'Hussein' in the White House; your opportunities are limited only by your darkest fears!
