      and because at some level they know how critical it has been to them in selling the alternate reality they depend on.

      it's got nothing to do with market forces-  does anyone really believe that 95% of americans who listen to talk radio prefer to be lied to by blowhards with the wit and wisdom of limbaugh and hannity?

      limbaugh and hannity and the rest are coordinated to sell war, deregulation, global warming denial, tax breaks for billionares, and corrupt politicians. that's worth trillions, and what the stations make from flooring and flowers and penile enhancement pills is gravy.

      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.

    •  Because progressives think (0+ / 0-)

      Its much harder to market to people with functioning brains. The crap advertisers that Beck/Rush have (buy seeds to survive the Apocalypse, get rich using the internet, buy our poorly written books) would not get any thinking person to part with their money. A right wing audience is a marketer's dream (we do whatever Rush says).
