If I've heard it once, [View all]

I've heard it a thousand times from our side. All the red state Democrats point to the prevalance of rightwing talk radio as a key factor in brain-washing their people. There simply are no alternative voices in the southern and midwestern red states. Day and night, they can find Limbaugh, Hannity, Savage, or Ingraham on any AM scan of their radio. Nothing else.

Why is that? Do we not have any media owners who would invest in a national syndicated radio network? Sure, you can pick up progressive talk on XM or internet streaming. But that doesn't equivocate to providing rural and average people with at least one plain ordinary AM nationwide channel like the righties have. We desperately need something like Radio Free Europe in the red states to offset the nonstop rightwing BS that this section of the population hears.

Who funds these righties? Can't we get sponsors for a national network the same as they do?
