      especially. even fox TV can't dsurvive w/out talk radio repetition to prechew their crap for them.

      Obama WILL be slowed by the talk radio monopoly- they will distort the whole debate  with lies and exaggerations about who will be paying what for health care and use it to enable their locksteppers in congress and blue dog limbaugh dems into regular filibusters they couldn't get if it wasn't for that radio monopoly.

      it's not about free speech - they've used an agressively protected monopoly of public airwaves as a giant soapbox with screened calls so most of the main blowhards can never be challenged, to lie us into a 2 trillion dollar occupation and just about every other disaster the last 20 years.

      democracy is severely hindered and bipartisanship impossible as long as the talk radio monopoly exists as is.

      at the very least the main national and local talkers should be required to post transcripts to a searchable database and all talkers should be required to at  least some unscreened calls. most of the progressive talkers take real calls.

      a new kind of Fairness Doctrine that accounts for the talk radio monopoly and its power to propagandize may be necessary. demonopolization may take too long.

      ignoring the talk radio monopoly continues to be the biggest political blunder in decades
