    RW radio does the groundwork repetition for everything the RW does.

    you probably live on one of the coasts, probably in a city. just guessing. in most parts of the US there are no free alternatives for politics while driving or working to compete with the ubiquitous RW radio blowhards and their coordinated partisan lies and propaganda.

    any significant progressive issue you might be interested in has been effected negatively and set back because the left gives RW radio a free speech free ride. any local or national progressive candidate gets either attacked from those stations or their opponents promoted.

    RW radio moves the political center to the right more than any other factor and even moreso as perceived and reported by the MSM.

    any time a dem or progressive politician or issue or reform or truth makes any headway or has a messaging success as part of the feedback process this democracy depends on (some common sense or truth gets by the MSM), highly paid PR pros in the RW think tanks devise campaigns to distract or distort it in the MSM, and it usually starts with Limbaugh and friends, where weeks and even months or lying and repetition can go by before the left even notices it.

    with all that unchallenged repetition they can also start shit - like the iraq attack. or every time they want to pass voter suppression or deregulation talk radio gets the  job started.

    that's where the swiftboating of dem politicians or appointees starts. that's where the rationalization and excuses and enabling of everything and anyone republican starts. that's where most of the global warming denial is being sold.

    that's how single payer was taken off the table during the clinton years. that's what got clarence thomas on the supreme court and turned bush and romney into 'acceptable' candidates. that's what deregulated the banks and convinced the teabaggers it would be OK to default.

    and so on. RW radio has effected every major issue negatively for liberals and will continue to make every major reform harder.

    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.
