    it's the loudest buzz machine in the country, well coordinated, ubiquitous, and unchallenged.

    get out of the city an check it out

    yeah its dying, but the planet doesn't have another 10 years to tack on to the last 20, waiting for free high speed everywhere.

    we've just had another year of obstruction- where do you think  that lock step obstruction comes from? and those loons in congress.

    rw radio is still kicking internet ass and will also keep doing its best to help the corporatists control that internet access and content.

      I sing praises in the church of nonsense, but in my heart I'm still an atheist, demanding sense of all things.

      •  see above. we have an authoritarianism problem (0+ / 0-)

        and the talk radio monopoly is perfect for exploiting it.

         authoritarianism power is based on the certainty uncertainty (fear) dynamic - http://youtu.be/...

        rw radio blowhards depend on certainty to sell the lies and all the left would have to do is challenge them in a way that could be seen by the republican talk radio base- a practically captive audience in many parts of the country, living in an alternate talk radio reality that enables these corporate loons and the dem blue dogs- it wouldn't take much challenge to break that certitude and start getting real progress. ignoring it is very bad strategy.

        and protest it- i've suggested these many times before so i'm not just bitching.....

        short version:
        1) the new Mac software has a free downloadable transcription app. dragon (brand) may be better may be more trainable. every state dem HQ could automate transcription of the main state blowhards so they can be regularly searched and responded to before the attacks get out of hand. dems can take lies to other media.

        2) shame the state funded colleges that rent their team logos to rw radio stations (maybe over 30% of the stations)- most may not be able to handle the loss of community cred and ad dollars- the monopoly wouldn't survive as is and it would open up stations for progressive talkers.

        the money the unis get from licensing is miniscule compared to the defunding of public ed and student aid and attacks on teachers and profs that these ALEC radio stations represent.

        #) one blowhard with a big megaphone can be worth thousands of protestors and they can keep attacking long after the protesters have gone home. some stations might be good places to picket. all progressive issues apply.

          1) rw radio works so well because it is unchallenged. it is unchallenged because it is invisible- not readable - most poltical analysis is half assed because of it

          2) all it would take is a few unis to announce they wouldn't renew licensing re radio and would look for apolitical alts. others would follow.
