    taking millions from allegedly nonpolitical nonprofits like Heritage, FreedomWorks, Americans for Prosperity, Hillsdale College, etc., for years.

    Politico had a great story about this two years ago.

    “The point that people don’t realize,” said Michael Harrison, founder and publisher of the talk media trade publication TALKERS Magazine, “is that (big time political talk show hosts) are radio personalities – they are in the same business that people like Casey Kasem are in – and what they do is no different than people who broadcast from used car lots or restaurants or who endorse the local roofer or gardener.”
    Of course, the point is that Limbaugh et al. promote Heritage etc. in a way that is not clear that they are reading a paid commercial.

    And that lying by omission is done entirely on purpose.

     

    A public option for health insurance is a national priority.
