    I think political talk radio is toxic. It panders to either the left or the right, driving the political fragmentation of the country.

    Never. It's poisonous, I think. There is no moderate or centrist political talk radio and I don't need to be behind the wheel and get agitated by listening to vitriol from either side. I only have music on in my car, ever.

    There is nothing wrong with talk radio as long as it does get the best of you.

    No, I listen to the Braves on radio. Now when traveling I have XM in my GMC and I will listen to the 50's channel, MLB channel and Classic radio channel. DP provides enough politics for me.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Nope. In fact, I never listen to the radio; I prefer to listen to music I pick than music someone else picks.

    I listen to some talk radio--which may have an occasional political theme.
    But the all politics, all the time type shows....no.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    I don't know, to me its the equivalent of watching Fox or MSNBC. People tune in to hear what they want to hear, to cheer what they want to cheer and to boo what they want to boo.

    Michael Savage is so crazy, he makes me laugh. Once in a while I'll leave him on in the background. Perhaps that's just because I don't have a TV.

    I've listened in the past, very limited, to both left and right talk radio so that I could speak from knowledge and not ignorant bliss or ideological bent.

    Political talk radio that I listened to for my edification, was the harbinger of hatred, both left and right. All they sis was rant about how ignorant the other guys are and how the other side is trying to kill America.

    That even goes for certain NPR programming, which I do listen to. NPR has certain programs that try to give a broad spectrum of ideas, like "All Things Considered" though it isn't exempt from ideological dogma at times. Yet other programming on NPR can be very slanted to the left.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.
