7. Mean?

Mean isn't the issue. The issue is absolute lies and demonization presented as political commentary.

Propaganda is a very powerful tool, and if the propaganda one receives are lies and hate when a person is under extreme duress it can have a grave psychological impact. We have seen it in non-military people as well, like the man that shot up the Unitarian Church in Tennessee a few years ago. His bookshelf was lined with tomes written by RW hate-talkers.

One can argue whether Limbaugh's spew should be on Armed Forces Radio due to the first ammendment, or whether it should be balanced by opposing views (which is the only neutral thing to do); but it's way different than "mean", it's serious hate-promoting propaganda.
