  •  talk radio creates the lobbyists' constituency (1+ / 0-)

    maybe this is another issue, like health care reform, that needs to be protested at the offices of limbaugh and hannity and sons, at the 1000 RW radio stations that do the groundwork for the opposition to all progressive issues.

    a single local blowhard reading chamber of commerce talking points can undo the work of thousands of union/citizen activists

    they've been trashing workers rights and unions for 20 years, distorting the issue and protecting corporate personhood, and few people ever get through their call screeners to set them straight.

    that's a big ready to go constituency for lobbyists.

    a huge pressure  blue dog dems feel in those red states is the coordinated blasting they get from the RW talk radio nation, making their compromising to their corporate donors a lot easier. waving signs at those stations may get media attention and force those senators to choose between their real constituents and those corporate lobbyists.

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