  •  yet we allow our unis/schools to support RW radio (7+ / 0-)

    the single loudest continuous outlet for the deniers.

    RW radio as an unchallenged monopoly cannot survive without the sports broadcasting that gives individual megastations the community credibility and advertising advantage to make up for the fact they spew lies and shit all over them every day.

    students of those unis, and humans younger, have the most to lose, yet they (and all the student groups they form) continue to allow their universities to be piggybacked to spread denial and enable local and national politicians.

    environmental groups like 350.org continue to be much leff efficient merely because they ignore the single most important weapon for denialists and the party they control.

    This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and GOP lies by broadcasting sports on over 170 Limbaugh radio stations.

    •  Radio is very very important in shaping the views (0+ / 0-)

      of people over 60.

      It's marginally less important than newspapers.

      •  you probably live in a city. (0+ / 0-)

        and those are the 'wise' parents and uncles and aunts and bar dwellers who 'educate' those tens of millions of voters who have no time for news or interest in it.

        it has a big advantage over newspapers. with a newspaper or TV political stations or the internet it's easy to change the station/page.

        with talk radio in most parts of the country and many sparsely populated states with 2 senators its the only free source of politics/current events while driving or working. and it's a coordinated monopoly which means that when idiots ignore it it can be very useful for doing things like creating distractions like benghazi and fiscal cliffs or swiftboating susan rices.

        •  PS if you drove x USa and left the barry manilow (0+ / 0-)

          collection at home and there was a major political even going on, and you didn't have a good connection, you'd probably have to get it on RW radio.
