    So much for the liberal media, huh?
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    I agree. The guy's net worth is pushing a billion. However, I live in a rural area with two talk radio stations to choose from... and that damned big-mouthed partisian hack dominates both of them from 9:00 am until noon. Now one of those stations has been so flooded with complaints that it's considering cancelling his shows! For me, that's a win! Maybe the next talking head will be more like Tom Sullivan and less like Rush The Raging Misogynist.

    So I'm happy, either way.

    I'm amazed at the number of people who apparently don't know how to change a radio station.

    Well at least at one station, the lack of advertising dollars is having an effect.

    Personally, I think the hoopla over Rush's comments are an over reaction, but his statements were certainly uncalled for.
    I heard today on the Neal Boortz show that the American Heart Association doesn't want their public service announcements running on his show anymore. So Rush has been losing paying advertisers, and now companies that don't spend anything for air time don't want to be associated with him.
    Do not write in this space!

    The die hard rabid Rush Limbaugh haters with the Carrie Nation fury want to silence any opposing speech.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    That was a lot of commas.

    To answer your question - sure.

    Television news is overwhelmingly liberal just as talk radio is overwhelmingly conservative.

    You should invest in an ipod.

    I'm in the same situation as you are, so I got an ipod and I listen to whichever podcasts I can find. I listen to my ipod about 8 hours a day on the weekdays, so I'm always scrambling for new stuff to listen to.

    Best investment I ever made.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    People are, indeed, changing the radio station. That's why Rush is losing his sponsors.

    There's Fox News and Fox Business News. CNBC is also extremely neutral since they cover financial news and only talk about politics how it relates to the financial sector. C-Span just posts what the politicians themselves are saying. I believe that in the evenings on C-Span 3 they have a summary of all the political news of the day, and I've started watching that. At 7am every morning they have Washington Journal on C-Span. If you want just quick news summaries, Headline News is good for that as long as you avoid all the pundit shows on there.
