      well without a healthy RW radio to do the groundwork repetition of the bullshit it depends on. those liars and idiots can't exist on their own.

       they're there to put visual icing - handsome block heads and sassy blond perms -  on the talk radio lie turd pie

      if limbaugh going down takes RW radio down, fox will follow, IMO.

      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.

        Limbaugh going down will create a vacuum that someone else will happily fill.  They might go a little less extreme than Limbaugh, but there is probably still an audiene who likes the constant insults and belittling of others to help them feel better about themselves.  It's why Ann Coulter can still find audiences sell books: because people like it when their opponents are treated with such disdain and mockery.

        I don't think Fox is just feeding off RW radio.  I think they work off each other.  Television is the more powerful and accessible media and can help reach broader audiences.

        •  no, limbaugh is unique, he can beat a lie detector (0+ / 0-)

          any time i'll bet.

          at some point in his life, maybe out of necessity, he developed a championship capacity for denial of reality, and has unique abilities to lie, rationalize, and extemporize around his talking points that few others in that business have.

          and what really sells the lie is his royal certitude- that comes from being protected by call screeners from real time challenge, and coddled and primed by his think tank handlers.

          the sellers of the alternate reality have a huge investment in limbaugh- he's their point man.

          as for fox, it can't sell lies like talk radio. the RW radio monopoly is the only media element that can blanket the country with coordinated repetition of lies and memes, reaching 50 mil a week, delivered by liars who are protected by call screeners and don't have to look into a camera when they lie.

          in print, internet, and TV there is still limited competition. the talk radio monopoly is 95% RW - and they coordinate locally and nationally on important propaganda.

          even fox has to pretend to be balanced and occasionally present an opposing view. with print, internet, or TV it's easy to change the page or channel to other politics.- not so with talk radio- in most parts of the country there are no free alternatives for politics while driving or working.

          we wouldn't be in this mess if the left realized it's talk radio that's been kicking their ass for the last 25 years..
