    The biggest part of the problem is that most liberals don't have much of a sense of humor, and they get rather shrill. Of course, I don't find Glenn Beck all that funny, either, to be blunt. Funny looking, maybe. But clearly, conservatives are more easily amused than liberals. I enjoy watching him cry more than Tebow, though. I wish he cried more. Then I might watch him.

    Where have I ever made the inverse argument?

    If you read carefully you would see that I said that there are many many many educated and smart conservatives. The wrong presumption that others were trying to argue is that they all listen to right-wing propoganda.
    The reality is....most of the smart conservatives don't.

    Academia and science aren't formats for political punditry and in case you haven't noticed, the news paper business is going down the toilet.

    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.

    Right-wing radio does well because their target market breathes on that type of propoganda.

    Talk radio is nothing but propoganda.....I'm actually glad to see less of it on the air, even if it was left-wing propoganda.
    Liberals love listening to propaganda just as much as conservatives do. Do not be silly.

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.
    OK, I'm with you on the media. What about science and academia? Should they be politically biased in the way they teach or research, as they are?

    Radio itself isn't being obsolete but the way it is provided is.

    Younger people don't really listen to the radio. They listen to pre-selected playlists of music or pod-casts through their iPods or steam live online or through their phones. This opens the door to listen to any show anywhere.

    I live in San Diego and I listen to a show that plays live in LA and and another that is in New York. You can't do that on Radio unless they are syndicated (which is rare).

    It's like TV. Less and less people are watching shows as they are scheduled and opting in to watch them on demand through pre-recorded means (DVR, TiVo, Online streaming, etc.). In the near future we won't have to wait for shows to come on, we just have to wait for them to become available for adding to our play queue. Much like Netflix.
