    Yes, Hannity and Limbaugh are a lot better. Both defend the Constitution. Both are pro American. Both are pro honesty in the media and pro honest solutions to the problems. You don't have to like them or appreciate the content they use in their broadcasts. You don't have to believe that they never get something wrong. You don't have to believe that they never cross the line into bad taste or inflammatory language. But they both do their homework and do a better job than most to present accurate information in a format that is not boring or off putting to their listening audience which is substantial.

    Piers Morgan seems to have none of those positive attributes and all of the negative ones. Which is why they succeed where he has failed. And that at least gives us a glimmer of hope that America has not been so dumbed down that nobody can tell the difference any more/

    That speaks volumes about the audience.

    And?? The point is they appeal to a certain group of people, which is more than I can say about Piers Morgan.

    Well at least most of those on the right can provide a rationale for the opinions we hold. And it is because we can that we are on the right. Your side seems to have only non sequitur, straw men, red herrings, and ad hominem to offer. When you can actually focus on a principle and concept and articulate a defensible rationale for it, you might find you have moved over to the right side of the ideological spectrum and can understand why a Limbaugh or Hannity can attract a market share and somebody like Piers Morgan cannot.

    God knows why people love talking head radio and tv show anchors. They aren't defending the Constitution, they aren't doing it to be pro-American. It's all about the money and the Cult of Personality. They want you to subscribe to their content, to buy their t-shirts, their ghost-written books, and to define your political will through their lens. It doesn't matter who it is. That's their goal.

    When you spend a lot of time buying into their talk, all it's doing is harming your intellectual growth.
