21. i remeber seeing the ad and thinking of it as a summary of 20 years of talk radio bullshit

and if they were going to pay $1000/hr for a radio infomercial 1200 radio stations x 15 hrs/day would be worth nearly $5BIL/year and while the anti health care programming is just a part, it's been a major part and becomes all out on radio when it's time to keep senators and reps in line, and it generally works to elect more anti-reform pro-pharma candidates

it is important to get informed but except in big blue cities and college towns that other messaging is dominant, especially in about 40 states with 80 senators. dems pushing messaging have always been disappointed and it's because of the talk radio advantage - the only truly unique messaging advantage the cons have.

and that's because they can keep it a monopoly - merely because liberals ignore it and blame the decoy fox

but AI now makes it inevitable that talk radio will finally be digitized (how to) and available to read and analyze. when that happens the ad industry will have to start applying market demand and asking clients if they really want to support trump, global warming, kids in cages, and racism - instead of bundling them on at discounts. most of those advertisers will show very soft support for RW radio when contacted.

any protesting and boycotting of rw radio or the 88 + universities that broadcast sports on 260+ limbaugh stations will accelerate that process and advertisers will dump rw radio like stoprush x 100.

then americans can have fact based national discussions about issues like health care without them being distorted by a few think tank liars feeding a few hundred professional liars on 1500 think tank-coordinated radio stations.
