154. i'm beginning to think you're troll, worried about real challenge to RW radio
Edited on Wed Sep-28-11 02:49 PM by certainot
assuming you're not, here's the deal- it's a catch 22 situation

you think you're going to break up ownership while ignoring RW radio? and global warming can't wait. good luck. progressives and dem reps have tried to prevent and tried to reverse deregulation, and the biggest obstruction for ongoing or future efforts will continue to be driven on RW talk radio - because there is NO organized challenge to it from the left.

don't you think that's pretty fucking stupid- NO organized opposition to the right's best weapon?

in case you don't get it, the right controls media and can message over and around everything the left can do and the most important part of that is talk radio. the republicans have been able to beat back all attempts to fix media and with citizens united it's gotten worse.

RW talk radio is their best tool and without it they're fucked and democracy can work. it is the difference maker. as long as the lazy naive left wants to ignore talk radio because it gives them a headache to listen to it we can't have an honest national discussion about media reform or election reform or any other major reform and there will be fewer and fewer repub reps willing to do the right thing or compromise. once the talk radio monopoly got going after reagan killed the fairness doctrine it paved the way for the monopolization you don't like, whether you think it had anything to do with forcing clinton to deregulate or not.
