  •  talk radio turned reagan clown into god (0+ / 0-)

    the reagan myth, the right's rise, due in large part to talk radio getting a free speech free ride from the left.

    it was built into a massive alternate reality-creating, swiftboating tool that could dominate many aspects of politics in the US without being noticed by what should have been its enemies.

    it started when RR killed the fairness doctrine. it went on to hamstrung clinton (get clarence thomas in, kill single payer), and deified and distorted and rewrote the ronnie history (re iran contra, economy) for a large part of the information spectrum.

    that 30 year 'cycle' was largely due to the left's ignorance of  the right's best weapon- we didn't need 30 years of shit. and it's going to keep them in the game if the left's major orgs and the dem party continue to ignore it.

    This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and partisan lying by broadcasting sports on Limbaugh radio stations.
