      •  which is a lot harder (0+ / 0-)

        with the ignored radio monopoly determining where the 'center' is perceived to be, what is and isn't acceptable, what is radical-

         they help a great deal selling blue dogs through the primaries

        catch 22

        Progressives will lose all major messaging battles until they picket the limbaugh/hannity megastations and boycott those stations' local sponsors.

      the RW monopoly part

      air am, by some accounts, was set up to fail- vastly undercapitalized and up against a well established subsidized and protected monopoly that is the centerpiece of the RW propaganda machine.

      the problem is that the left ignores and underestimates the radio problem, so it is constantly miscalculating, getting porked and out 'messaged'- it's pitiful.
