    24/7 they use a 1000 strong monopoly of radio stations and fox to determine to a large extent the discourse in this country.

    by ignoring that dominating soapbox americans allow them the opportunity to use any real or created emergency to make things worse for political purposes- basically to continue what they always do- use coordinated UNCONTESTED repetition to attack anything and anyone progressive, but moreso.

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

    •  I don't propose ignoring (0+ / 0-)

      What I can't see is what the point is of long treatises on Beck.

      My view : you get wet out in the rain. Glenn Beck is worthless. How much can we discuss this while getting some value?

      My opinion is that there is no value to be gained, and so I stated that.

      Your view - and you're entitled to it - is that it is valuable. That's fine - we'll agree to disagree.

      •  i think (0+ / 0-)

        there's value in getting into the details of what the RW propaganda machine is up to although i think fox (beck) gets way too much attention and radio (also with beck) much too little attention and analysis.

        seachable transcripts of the main radio blowhards would provide a great roadmap for most of what ends up on fox later in the day or week as well as what is said by GOP and even some blue dog dems and what their strategy is.

        those transcripts would have warned what was coming on everything from gore and kerry to acorn and van jones- it does the groundwork for everything they want to sell.
