Savage is awesome.. So is Levin, Ingraham, Medved, Miller, and especially Glenn Beck.
I doubt Jon Stewart would do well on radio... making a face doesn’t translate well over radio waves.
But i know what you were trying to say, and I agree with you.
There is unrest in the forest,
There is trouble with the trees,
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas.
The trouble with the maples,
(And they're quite convinced they're right)
They say the oaks are just too lofty
And they grab up all the light.
But the oaks can't help their feelings
If they like the way they're made.
And they wonder why the maples
Can't be happy in their shade.
There is trouble in the forest,
And the creatures all have fled,
As the maples scream "Oppression!"
And the oaks just shake their heads
So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights.
"The oaks are just too greedy;
We will make them give us light."
Now there's no more oak oppression,
For they passed a noble law,
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet, axe, and saw.

PING for great retort!
“I want half of every department in every university in America to be staffed with registered conservatives, I want a competing newspaper in every city with the same funding as their leftist counterpart, I want 3 conservative, national TV channels to counter the big three, and for every socialist movie or documentary, I want funding for a conservative counterpoint. I also want a right leaning version of the ACLU, the ABA, and the AMA. “
There is indeed a “structural imbalance” in the media world in which talk radio is an island of conservative voices surrounded by a sea of “progressive” voices.
the left reigns on TV and most other forms of media. I don’t hear anything there..
It would be disingenuous on the one hand to say that the government has the power to step in and prevent Stern from saying "f**k" on the radio, but with the same breath say they don't have the power to regulate anything else. You either have the power to regulate or you don't.
In for a penny, in for a pound.
"Progressives" are anti-capitalists. Why would they get enthusiastic about the products advertised on their shows and encourage their listeners to purchase those products?
