Unfortunately, when you take all of the right wing media, be it FOX TV, the NY Post Newspaper, the wall-street journal online, or the Limabaughs of
the radio, there is a combined effect. Of course this means there is an effect on the left by the media and this is true. The difference, imo, is
that talk radio is very visceral, angry, immediate and after filling some persons head with ideas well spoken but obviously slanted to the right year
after year - gives the average joe the chance to bitch about why thier life sucks, and who is responsible for ALL of the problems in our govt.
I mean, people are still REALLY pissed at Clinton, the last eight years on their watch have been a total wreck, and these guys still have an audience
Limbaugh is an entertainer who talks almost about himself as much as he does his "enemies" in Washington, but many listen and believe. Now his
spawn, with the likes of Michael Savage (he of the autism is a made up disease) have taken over the airwaves - agian, are you really shocked by the
lowest common denomonator? Give an idiot a soapbox, cheer him on and watch him go! Hate speach is becoming masked as politcal jargon and imo, it
will continue to be very interesting to see how our country as a whole reacts as Obama gets closer to the White House. If only Strom Thurmond were
around to make things right for the Republicans...
