    it's more serious than individual callers

    on several occasions, going back to the 1st gulf war, i've heard what could easily be identified as group caller episodes. the ones i heard were related to their war efforts- to sell the  wars and excuse them, with well coordinated delivery of the main talking points and rationalizations and attacks on critics. the times i remembered were ended with a whiny voiced 'hippie peace lover' or a guy with an arab accent attacking the earlier callers setting up a barrage of callers to attack them.

    these things could be frequent on certain shows rel to many topics but they may have been pentagon ops.

    maybe the left should put up a reward for whistleblowers- good for discrediting RW radio, an important thing to do to help get supermajorities in congress and win white house.

    This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and partisan lying by broadcasting sports on Limbaugh radio stations.

      The company responsible for syndicating big conservative radio names like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity has been using paid actors to call in to their radio shows.
      “Premiere On Call is our new custom caller service,” the website said. “We supply voice talent to take/make your on-air calls, improvise your scenes or deliver your scripts. Using our simple online booking tool, specify the kind of voice you need, and we’ll get your the right person fast. Unless you request it, you won’t hear that same voice again for at least two months, ensuring the authenticity of your programming for avid listeners.”

      from a bright young conservative: “I’m watching my first GOP debate…and WE SOUND LIKE CRAZY PEOPLE!!!!”
