In the marketplace of ideas...
Here in the DFW area we have a new radio station AM660 KSKY - which runs Laura Ingahram, Dennis Prager, Michael Medved, Hugh Hewitt, and Michael Savage. We also have AM820 WBAP which runs local talent (and nationally syndicated) Mark Davis, then Rush, then Sean Hannity, and runs Drudge and overnight has the Overnight Trucker's Radio Network. Then there is AM570 KLIF which runs Ankarlo Mornings (local libertarian/conservative talent) Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly, Dr.Laura, Greg Knapp (local libertarian/conservative), Tony Snow, Alan Colmes, and then the UFO freaks with George Noory.
Point is, on the three big talk radio channels in the metroplex we get one hour of "liberal" talk radio per day - Alan Colmes. I am not complaining because liberal talk radio is not entertaining. Colmes' show is infuriating because it is neither funny nor enlightening. Rather, the show is comprised mainly of Alan Colmes demanding that someone (guest or caller) answer the (silly) question he asked instead of letting them answer the question or demanding that guest or caller stop making bigoted statements.
We don't have an Air America affiliate here in the metroplex, but judging from what the "free market" is providing radio listeners around here, Air America would be a flop in the metroplex. I have tried to listen to AA on-line but Franken is not funny either - I suppose that's why they call it "political satire" instead of "political humor."
