Talk Radio

Conservative talk radio must be stopped--because it's conservative, I guess.  Advocates of this position rail about "hate speech" and "intolerance."

Pot, meet kettle.

Whatever happened to "I disagree with what you say but will defend to the death your right to say it?"

The "problem" seems to be that Rush Limbaugh in the 1980's figured out how to make money on AM radio, and that Al Franken in the 2000's couldn't.  Color me skeptical that shutting down an entire wing of the nation's media (the one which, incidentally and interestingly, interacts most directly with the actual public) is the correct solution to this problem.

There's plenty of intolerance in the world, and based on the huffing and puffing of the Diane Feinsteins of the world, a goodly portion of it seems to come from the left side of the political spectrum.
