    RW radio.

    that means intimidating dems as well as republicans. that means defining where the perceived political center is and how liberal is too liberal in the primaries. what is acceptable and what isn't.

    most of those blue dogs sit in states dominated by a few RW megastations that dems are completely disconnected from.

    you want to get rid of corporate and blue dog dems? stop  ignoring the radio- any attempts by dems to push media and election finance reform are beaten back, largely with the essential help from those radio stations, fed and coordinated with well designed propaganda campaigns.

    it started with the fairness doctrine and then clinton was hamstrung. it's even more refined now against obama.

    everything the 'left' wanted from the democratic party the last 25 years has been compromised because of its stupendous ignorance of RW radio 's dominance in politics.

    This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and GOP lies by broadcasting sports on over 170 Limbaugh radio stations.
