    fronts the only source of American-based information, Democracy Now, that is even close to being both high-profile, and free of BS.

    All other sources on the poll list are corrupt, and the only question (as you allude to in your diary) is the actual degree of corruption, or "corporate influence." Rachel Maddow's Hubris is a telling example of this, that an excellent news person like her can only go so far, with the restricted medium that she has to contend with.

    Thom Hartmann does well within his own format, and the myriad array of issues featured on his show, to speak plainly to the one singular and seemingly censored truth, that our federal government has been corrupted by lobbyist money... meaning, "both sides do it."

    But as far as progressive radio goes (Ed Schultz, Stephanie Miller. Alan Colmes), it seems that the further up the ladder of prominence one goes, the more these same voices become silent, becoming more reluctant to address the core problems of our government.... the real problems of corporate influence, whose existence makes it easier for the Bush cabal of thugs to destroy another country for profit, while handcuffing our better representatives in the Democratic party from doing anything about it.

    There is no such thing as a dumb question, but there is such a thing as too many dumb questions that arise from not having listened to the answer of the first question.
