    most of the radio market has missed the opportunity to speak to progressives. This does not have to be done like it is on right wing radio. It can and is done on the few progressive radio stations there are with more fact, less incendiary language, and
    less that will offend listeners to the point of boycott.

    Sure, there are some progressive pundits who get themselves in hot water with their comments, but I would suggest they're on a much shorter leash than RW pundits. See Martin Bashir who IMO, should not have been forced to resign. Shame on you Phil Griffith---you should have stood behind your man here, whether you agreed w/his comment or not, but because his comment in context was not unreasonable. And you know it.

    But then this is the guy who threw Ed overboard and  then had to swallow some big time humble pie and ask him back.

    In short, if our corporations only understand the bottom line, they've all been slow to see there's a good bottom line in speaking to progressives too.

    Reminds me of Kate Blanchett's words last night upon winning her Oscar. Americans want to hear and see women in crucial roles, and they'll pay money to do it. Same with Democrats and progressives.

    The only think that will cure the pox of RW radio on this country at this point, is more LW radio. Then it's a fair game.
