    the most destructive and far reaching thing Reagan did to Democracy out of all of his legacy... and he has a lot to answer for besides that... it is so huge and pervasive for the cumulative effect as to be invisible in plain sight... subtle in once sense because talk radio is just the wallpaper of the broadcast sound... pervasive. Only the internet arrived to counterbalance it... and enough years of more intelligent people tuning out what does square with what they can pick up from reality directly and from alternative sources. The tilt  back, the counter-swing of the pendulum is underway but the poison and harm done by the unleashing of biased one-sided monopoly radio will linger for years.
