25. I Appreciate Your Optimism

But I don't see how this will have any affect on the body politic. It surely won't take out Hannity or Rushbo as we saw with the Sandra Fluke situation...Bob Pitman and John Hogan will not fire them and all the noise only helps give them publicity. Hate radio is a dinosaur...a remnant of a radio that is rapidly fading away and Bain/Cheap Channel is keeping a Titanic afloat just long enough to make their financial killing and be on their way. Internet, Satellite and Podcasting are taking their toll on the bottom lines of this company and hate radio's audience continues to get old and fade away.

Unfortunately those who listen to hate radio do so by choice...and banishing it wouldn't chance the political dynamic in this country. I wish it would but its influence is more among the chattering classes than it is on the masses. Hate radio is used to echo messages these days, not to spread them. Mittens needed those stations more to win the nomination than it is to win the general election...Citizens United is what he'll use to carpetbomb the media (and BTW Bain/Cheap Channel stand to make a nice chunk of change from the SuperPac spending...yet only a fraction of what will be spent on TV).

The turning of the public airwaves has been a bipartisan venture (Telcom '96 was passed under Clinton) and there's no appetite to reform ownership rules...
