37. I'm opposed to it.
Anyone who doesn't want to listen to the RW gang on the radio or over at FOX can simply change their stations or channel.

RW talk radio has as much right to exist as LW talk radio. Ditto for TV. The right has FOX and the left has MSNBC. I'm against any kind of censorship and attempts to muzzle freedom of speech, even when that speech goes against my beliefs.
