  •  I listen to crap radio. (0+ / 0-)

    It's a guilty pleasure. Actually, it's not a pleasure at all. It's so I know what angle they're pursuing, how they're going to try to use our strengths against us somehow. I know it's never going to go away. We just can't ignore it and put our heads in the sand. It is a business. It runs on money. And the money comes from sponsors. And those people are fearful, especially these days... Tell them how offended we are. Don't let's be shrill, just say, I've had enough of this. This country is in trouble and your guy is out there saying "this" and "this" and "this". Get actual quotes. Ask them, Is this a position that your company agrees with? I'd just like to know, for the record... I'm writing a little article this week, and by the way, what was your name?

    This kind of thing. Over and over and over....

      Use their product or service.

      Most of the advertisers in our local market are local business owners.

      If a local auto shop advertises and you have been faithfully using them for 10 years, you may have some clout.  On the other hand, if it is someone that you don't use, I doubt you will have an impact.

      Talk radio, both conservative and progressive are funded by local advertisers.  It isn't like the nightly news that is supported by national companies.

      •  Limbaugh and Beck both shill for GM. (0+ / 0-)

        But then, they're already going down the tubes, without our help, aren't they? Maybe we can call them and say, Nyeah, nyeah, nyeah nyeah nyeah! Or something equally insulting.
