    ium though.

    IMO RW radio works so well because it is unchallenged on it's own turf- in it's own medium- in most areas of the country. that lack of challenge allows them to launch their lies and distortions with total certitude/without doubt, and that's what sells them.

    with internet or TV or print, even with as much consolidation as there is, its still easy to find alternative political viewpoints. but if you want free politics while driving or working there are no alternatives in most parts of the country.

    kickstarting the lies and distortions with that kind of unchallenged certitude is gold for the propagandists.

    whatever the effect of the internet obamacare ads, talk radio has chewed that to death for years now, including supplying the teabaggers with most of their lies and myths.

    there are many things the left could do to reduce that talk radio capability but waiting for internet to overcome it is not  good strategy- 2014 is right around the corner and global warming is here.

    and even then that tool will be effective for them in minimizing all progressive efforts, swiftboating, etc. - the left has to take it seriously and destroy the monopoly or it won't get any major reforms anytime soon.

    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.
