Shocker: NY Times not a fan of Conservative Talk Radio, Compares it to Rap Music
Patriot Room ^ | 9-20-09 | Scott Martin

I suppose it's only fair. Judging by the Times' plunging stock value and rapidly shrinking readership, fans of conservative talk radio are not fans of the paper. But this is a little over-the-top, even for this discredited fishwrap.

Call It Ludacris: The Kinship Between Talk Radio and Rap

"Hour after hour, rant after rant, it is a feast of words and feverish emotion, interrupted only by regular commercials and the occasional call from the awe-struck fan.

I’d heard these voices before, but only in sound bites. When you don’t own a car and don’t tune in at home, you probably don’t run into Michael Savage, Rush Limbaugh or Mark Levin. On the highways of the Cornhusker State, they ran into me, every time I hit the scan button. After a while, it felt like a series of visits from very colorful and highly agitated relatives.

Goes to show you what the NYT knows about anything. Talk radio and “rap” are nothing alike. I understand perfectly what Beck, Limbaugh and Hannity are talking about. I’ve no clue about what those “rap” guys are saying. It doesn’t even sound like English to me.

That’s not just racist. That’s double racist. With whipped cream and a cherry on top. You’re comparing the rants of white conservatives to the righteous anger of people of color. Then you’re saying that art produced by people of color is crap.

Gee... Who’d a thunk it.
They don’t call the New York Times Editorial Board “The Gay Mafia”, for nothing, folks....

If you listen to the New York Times article just right, you can hear them say the word “boy” at the end of every sentence.

Yep, fair or unfair - I hear them saying black rappers are as bad as right wingers. And since the New York Times hates right wingers, it means that hate blacks. That’s RACIST... The New York Times is a racist organization.

When the NYT compares Rap Music to conservative talk radio, I hear Stormfront!

That is certainly an unusual combination, someone that listens to “rap” and also to conservative “talk radio.” I guess that it takes all kinds.

Sure. But nobody's listening.

Just imagine if some conservative white folks compared "air america" -- in what would be a flaming non-sequitir -- to rap "music."

Fair or unfair - when she speaks I hear, "I'm Maureen Dowd and I'm a race-baiter". Happens every time she opens her mouth... odd.
