64. Why does that not surprise me?
Radio is the most corrupt, one-sided medium. They like to say "We just put on the popular stuff, but I think Reality television pretty much tells anyone that people will watch pretty f-in much anything! It is all about changing minds, and deluding Americans to keep on being suck-up sycophants to the republican party, and further radicalizing the U.S. electorate.

Who cares anyway? Most already get whatever progressive radio they listen to from the Internet, and many had completely abandoned television news, or talk shows completely for the Internet, until MSNBC came out, a bit more centrist. Now we've got Current.

But we also have to deal with the burying of liberal thought, like Maher, or Current TV, on pay-tv, or higher paying digital tiers. I recently was looking to trim a few bucks when the new Comcast price hikes came out. Going from dig-preferred to regular, eliminates Current. OF course, that too, can be had by the Internet, so....

But this can be a pretty big factor in places like California, with traffic jams, and tons of people sitting in cars.
