I’ve gotten to where I don’t take talk radio hosts or news networks seriously, especially if I know they are slanted in one way or another.... Even if it’s a ‘slant’ I agree with.
It’s so easy to turn on virtually any news broadcast(cable or network) and see that they are attempting to manipulate people.

I’ve noticed that too, regardless of the personalities or the agenda, propaganda seems more . . . crass? obvious? ineffective? I wonder if it is because it takes less effort, or because there is just such a saturation of propaganda that it is less effective, and indeed counterproductive. I am not aiming this at radio or any particular personalities, just ‘news media’ in all forms and at all levels.
