Heads Up.......Bill Moyers.....on Talk Radio(more like hate radio)
Overview
One in four Americans get some of their daily news from talk radio. Despite the popular notion of liberal bias in media, the biggest names on the radio airwaves are unabashedly conservative. This isn't news. One name looms large in the history of talk radio in America. So large that when the Annenberg Public Policy Center published an early study on the talk radio phenomenon in 1986, the study's respondents were divided into four categories: Limbaugh, Conservatives, Moderates and Liberals. Industry publication TALKERS magazine released the results of a "13-year, non-scientific study" of listeners of talk radio in 2003. Thirty-seven percent of respondents identified themselves as either Ultra Conservative or Conservative. An additional 23 percent labled themselves as Moderate/Fiscal Conservatives. The 1986 Annenberg study also showed that Talk Radio listeners were more likely to consume other sources of news than those who didn't listen to talk radio.

News trends are changing. A recent poll showed that an increasing percentage of younger Americans get their news from late night television. And a December 2002 Gallup Poll showed the percentage of Americans who say they get their news from talk radio has nearly doubled since 1995, from 12 percent to 22 percent. Find out more about where America is getting its news below.

1. I am sure I have a real case of depression after I go shopping.
I have to hear hate radio for the 10 miles to the store. I do like to know what they are talking about but it is always hate and more hate.The call ins are the same and it is like the 'For Bush' on c-span. I guess if they had a left wing radio it would be the same but I have yet to hear one.

For the past week the idiot has been trying to make something of some unfounded story on kerry and an intern.

It's not even the kerry story that bothers me as much as the fact that Bush got a pass on cocaine use, awol, his texas record you name it--the complicit media looked the other way. Now they are tuning up to tear down whoever gets the dem nomination.

It's truly sickening. They no longer verify their stories. They just spew smut and whatever sticks, stays--truth or not. Look at what happened to Dean.

I try not to think about the state of the media in America, because when I do, it's heartbreaking.

4. the best advice I can give you is to do some grassroots work
The only hope we have is to get our simple and truthful messages out through any means, if that means sponsoring forums at a school, handing out handbills on a street or marching in protest.
