  •  AL may be in play in 2016. (3+ / 0-)

      While I see no hope for 2012 due to the inherited racism that runs in the blood of a lot of people here in bama.  The problem is messaging and the lack of the fairness doctrine.  A lot of people here are in the service industry now due to the loss of manufacturing jobs. If all you are bombarded with every day is Fox news on the Tube @ the resturant you work at or Rush Limbaugh while working for a brick mason or construction job, then that is what you are going to believe.  

      To me that is the greatest failure of this administration to not reinstate the fairness doctrine when we had supermajority. Getting the message out for free like the conservatives do through talk radio and Fox versus us having to pay for advertising is why we are losing the common vote. Funny thing is all the conservatives complain about "mainstream media" and they ARE the mainstream media now. Their shows get twice as much ratings as any traditional or "normal" TV news like CNN.

    In God we trust, but every other EmEFFer better bring me some Data.

      because it lacks a big city like Atlanta. As for the Fairness Doctrine, from what I recall, it only covers radio--and not other mediums like TV, Cable TV, and the Internet. But I have a problem with it because I don't think government should force radio station to answer content.
