148. True, but don't screeners weed out the rednecky ones?
Wow, I wonder if the host and screeners are even aware who's a paid shill and who isn't. I mean, they have to know that shills call in on a regular basis -- since after all, it is a service that their show pays for -- but, as you said, this way they can be assured that the message and veneer of respectability get reinforced while still being natural (i.e. not complicit-sounding or awkward) on-air.
