    That's like asking if talk radio or TV opinion shows should have a conservative slant. It's a meaningless question; they are what they are, not what you think they "should" be. There is nothing preventing a conservative from starting a newspaper or a liberal from starting a talk radio channel, other than financial viability. Different groups of people prefer to get their news/ideas from different sources. Nothing wrong with that.

    From my own perspective, I never listen to the radio and I rarely watch television. So something like Air America or Countdown With Keith Olbermann would be totally wasting their money trying to appeal to me. But apparently that format is very effective for the demographic Rush Limbaugh is targeting.

    So...we're not the party of corporate interests then...if we don't work. And may I congratulate our own character..here we Right wingers are...none of us working mind you....and we STILL don't want the government paying for our health care. Unselfish and honorable wouldn't you say? I mean DD...your argument here is that right wingers don't work....and yet support tax cuts for those that do....turn down government funded health care(we're the ones with no health care...right.....cause we're not working...right).

    No. Right-wing propoganda listeners are fat angry white men who want to find someone to blame for their laziness.
    Yer profiling and not even accurate at that? This Mass. election really upset you, huh?

    They sit and fritter the day away listening to their heroes explain that there are all of these "others" that are the source of their troubles...it couldn't possibly have to do with their own failures.
    Actually...it's our youth and our population on welfare and government handout programs that sit and fritter. IT's the right calling for a tax cut as they know it's going to effect them.

    You're so far off, it must be on purpose. You couldn't be this confused.

    No. There are LOTS of conservatives that do work. They are just not the wackos that sit around all day listening to right-wing radio propoganda.

    Are you trying to argue that every or most every conservatives listen to that crap? Sorry....there are a lot more conservatives out there than you are giving credit to.

    Ah, beautiful bigoted stereotyping by our wonderful tolerant lefty Disney.

    Whether it be gays, undocumented workers, liberals, etc. They sit and fritter the day away listening to their heroes explain that there are all of these "others" that are the source of their troubles...it couldn't possibly have to do with their own failures.
    Whether it be christians, rich people, republicans, etc they sit and fritter the day away reading their heroes explain that there are all of these "others" that are the source of their troubles....it oculdn't possibly have to do with their own failures.

    Give me a break, the vast majority of your posts on this forum are no different than the type of stuff spewed out by Rush or Hannity or those "Fat angry white men" you think you're so different than.

    I'm actually quite tolerate Zyph. I have a lot of respect for true conservatives in the Goldwater vein. I may not agree with them, but I have a lot of respect for them.

    What I cannot respect are the fools that listen to idiots like Beck, Limbaugh, Savage etc...and then complain that everyone else is the source of their troubles. THAT is the rhetorics that the right-wing radio clowns espouse and they buy into it with their "victim" mentality.

    So...you're tolerant of the ones you like. The ones you don't like you grossly stereotype and speak in over generalizations in hopes of insulting and deriding them.

    Yep...sounds like I stand by my previous statement.

    No.....never said I "liked" them. I just respect them because they are focused on issues and are generally educated, even if I don't agree with them.

    The same cannot be said of those who sit around listening to right-wing radio. (or left-wing radio for that matter)....Anyone who listens to that crap and thinks they are getting educated is a fool.
