Surprise, surprise. Right wing shock jock Michael Savage has bashed the Obama bashers of right wing talk radio.
Not from any sense of decency, you must understand. Savage declares that Obama deserves the bashing, but constant bashing of the president is bad for talk radio.
Savage cited the example of Air America:
“Air America went bankrupt, why? Because all they did was…Bush bashing and they were just crazy in the Bush bashing. Boring. Boring. How much could you listen to? It wasn’t even clever Bush bashing. This is what’s going on now with the conservatives. They’re committing suicide. Just attacking Obama – although he deserves it – is not good radio…Remember one thing, radio is primarily an entertainment medium. It was not created to be the voice of the Republican Party or the Democrat Party.”Don't expect Rush Limbaugh to take a lesson. Many of Limbaugh's shows are non-stop Obama bashing extravaganzas.

Speaking of talk radio... while progressive talk radio stations are becoming an endangered species, conservative talkers are continuing to multiply like the proverbial loaves and fishes. The most recent new conservative talker is in Greenville, South Carolina, and is the number 26 news/talk station for Salem Communications. Salem is the fifth largest U.S. radio network, and specializes in evangelical Christian and conservative political talk radio. Please take a look at the radio station maps, here, for an appreciation of the current state of conservative vs. liberal talk radio.
