Now we know WHY the din for this started growing at the beginning of last week.

Center for American Progress had a 40 page report ready to try and justify government-mandated censorship of the one media outlet that can rally the people against Hillary!

CAP is a CLINTON-RUN leftist think tank, run by Hillary Clinton and former Clinton chief of staff John Podesta. They helped launch Media Matters for America.

SOROS is a huge contributor, and other recent donors to CAP include the Rockefeller Family Fund; the Irving Harris Foundation, the Philip Murphy Foundation, the New York Community Trust, the Overbrook Foundation, the Peninsula Foundation, the Robert E. Rubin Foundation, the San Francisco Foundation, the Bauman Family Foundation, the Nathan Cummings Foundation, the Joyce Foundation, the Open Society Institute, and the Robert and Irene Schwartz Foundation.

"Our goal is not less speech, but more speech," said Free Press Policy Director Ben Scott. "We want more voices on the radio."

Yeah, right. These communist-lite b*stards don't want ANY speech. And if they truly want their "voices" on the radio, they could try to put on a program which didn't actively repel listeners like ErrAmerica did. They already have NPR, which I can't bear to listen to since everything has a homosexual slant to it.

What an ironic name for his group. Sorry, if there was an audience for liberal talk radio, there would be more liberal talk radio.

Mike Harrison of TALKERS magazine (the folks who gave
Savage the Freedom of Speech award) said that the report
was inaccurate because public radio was not included.
Anyone out there name any conservative voices on public
radio?

from the Boston Herald, last Friday. By Jesse Noyes


Authors of a report, which found that the vast majority of talk radio programs cater to conservatives, called on the Federal Communications Commission yesterday to push for more local ownership to promote different voices.

Ninety-one percent of the talk on the radio dial during weekdays is given over to right-wing programming, according to a study by Free Press and the Center for American Progress, both left-leaning groups.

The two groups studied 257 news and talk stations owned by the top five commercial station owners in the country earlier this year and found that over 2,570 hours of conservative talk were broadcast on those stations each weekday, while a much lower 254 hours was dedicated to progressive talk.

In a conference call, the authors of report said the Federal Communications Commission needs to step in to limit the number of stations companies can own and make way for more local ownership.

“Our goal is not less speech, it’s more speech,” said Ben Scott, policy director for Free Press. “We want more voices on the radio.”

But Michael Harrison, publisher of trade magazine Talkers, said the report is flawed and narrow. It doesn’t consider the broader spectrum of talk radio, which would include public radio stations, he said.

“There’s a lot more to talk radio than what they call talk radio,” Harrison said.

Even in blue-state Massachusetts, there’s very little liberal talk. WTTK-FM (96.9) recently expanded the time slot of Herald columnist Margery Eagan and NECN host Jim Braude’s show by two hours. By talk radio standards, Eagan and Braude are moderate to liberal.

But Clear Channel dumped its liberal talk format heard on WKOX-AM (1200) and WXKS-AM (1430) last year in favor of a Spanish-language format.

Mike Crusham, market manager for Clear Channel in New England, said the move wasn’t politically motivated but financial.

“I always found, at least in my past life, that it’s tougher to sell advertising on progressive talk,” he said.

Donna Halper, a radio consultant who’s been pushing to get progressive talk back on the air in Boston, said the format can work if given enough resources.

“It isn’t an easy sell but, then again, neither was right-wing conservative talk when it started out,” she said.

Fine, 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. Further, I want every secondary school in the US to have a proportional # of conservatives, all the grants from the big trusts must give equal $ to conservative causes, and I will also require a radical restructuring of the publishing industry, from booksellers to weekly news magazines. This would be a good start.

Lloyd stressed that CAP and Free Press are not joining the Democrats in Congress who want to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine, a federal regulation that required broadcasters to present both sides of a controversial issue.

Hmmm, I just wonder if they want this to apply to TV stations. As the saying goes "Be careful waht you ask for".

Clear Channel’s Mike Crusham on why he dropped prog talk in Boston: “I always found, at least in my past life, that it’s tougher to sell advertising on progressive talk.”

(on your prog talk station):
“Walmart is evil! All these big corporations are evil,
Bush conspires with the oil companies to raise prices—
ah, well, it’s time for a break. We’ll be right back after
these...er...public service announcements...”

Who said there should be structural balance on syndicated talk radio anyway? How would you know if an issue is Liberal or Conservative since all issues are both? If it is out of balance wouldn’t it collapse on its own? The architectural metaphor is using baked brick where native stone should be.

And what is the author’s take on the main stream media, does he show the imbalance there towards the liberals, with some 90% of all reporters donating to the democrats, as a recent survey reported? Of course not!

Oh, come now - you don't expect fair, balanced, logical thinking from the radical libs, do you?

I DO think that your point is EXCELLENT, and I think that all of the conservative radio shows should harp on just one of your points - let there be a mandate for a conservative newspaper in every market. Let's see what the libs say. It'll either be: 1) silence; 2) statements that "if people wanted conservative papers they'd buy one"; or 3) "Its not fair! Wahhhhhhhhhhhh!"

>>I want 3 conservative, national TV channels to counter the big three

I’ve said the same thing...under a Fairness Doctrine I want:
—CBS Evening News with Ann Coulter
—NBC Nightly News with Bill O’Reilly
—3 more right-leaning cable news channels
—Equal time for conservatives in the Boston Globe and
NY Times
—If a school shows something like Fahrenheit 9/11 or
An Inconvenient Truth to students, also show them a film
rebutting Moore and Gore (in the case of the former,
FahrenHYPE 9/11 or Celsius 41.11, for example)

Want fairness?
—Force atheists to go to church (it’s good for your soul!)
—Force vegetarians to eat meat (it’s not fair to the
meat producers in this country that just SOME people
eat meat...)

The government controlling media in this country (and
monitoring it for “fairness”) is an abridgement of
Freedom of Speech or more to the point Freedom of the
Press. Should Rolling Stone be forced to put conservative
political articles in its magazine? Well, that’s about as
ridiculous as forcing station owners to run libtalk if
they don’t want to.

"In each case, we found overwhelming evidence of complete conservative dominance of the political talk programming at both the station-by-station and market-by-market level," he said.

Surveys have been done of the DBM and found the exact same imbalance, but skewed toward liberal dominance. Talk radio IS the balance to the DBM.

Who gets to decide what is conservative talk programming and what is liberal? I find Larry Kudlow liberal on some issues (like immigration), but conservative on others (free markets). Does he balance himself? This is ridiculous.

While everyone talks about the Fairness Doctrine, this pops up...
`Local Community Radio Act of 2007’.

http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/D?c110:3:./temp/~c110aHKDwz::

(Read it)

But could someone explain the following for me? I can’t find it anywhere.

SEC. 3. REPEAL OF PRIOR LAW.

Section 632 of the Departments of Commerce, Justice, and State, the Judiciary, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2001 (Public Law 106-553; 114 Stat. 2762A-111), is repealed.

Great idea. Just after we split NPR into two competeing systems, call the new one American Public Radio. That will add thousands of stations all accross the country that can now broadcast right wing propaganda 7x24. OK! Now we are balanced.

Anything to hear less of Terry Gross is good.

Drudge had a good take on it this past weekend. How will they regulate the Spanish stations?

They spew pro-amnesty, hate America rhetoric every day? Do you think they will get regulated and who does the regulating.

We outnumber them so let the fight begin. Liberals want a confrontation on this issue. I say, let it begin. Everyone I know (both Parties) is saying that they are voting against “ALL” incumbents. Incumbents that want to limit our freedom of speech are toast. Freedom of speech, in their book, is only for the likes of Michael Moore and George Soros. Their goal is to silence us. They can think again, they’re very WRONG!

It's simply inaccurate to argue there's little or no progressive talk in major markets with National Public Radio affiliates airing Diane Rehm's show, or 'Fresh Air with Terry Gross,' or the other national and local left-leaning talk programs."

Let's not forget "News and Notes" -- another raging liberal NPR program.

Let's not forget that several NPR correspondents are regularly used as the liberal voice on the Sunday news shows.

Derek Turner, research director of Free Press, said "the potential one-sidedness on the radio dial in terms of political programming is strongly and directly related to ownership and market structure."

No, it's related to revenue. Profitable shows stay on the air, money losers get canceled. It's called the free market, I can understand why a Soros-funded group might not have heard of the concept.

"Our goal is not less speech, but more speech,"

Deja vu all over again. I seem to recall the Title IX supporters saying, "Our goal is not less sports. We simply want more sports for women." Sounds fair, right?

We ended up with less sports for men in order to achieve "balance". Why? Women didn't want them.

Same thing with talk radio -- witness Air America. Air America had every reason to succeed and no excuse for failure. None.

People chose not to listen to them. So how has that fact changed?

If the people chose not to listen to them, it’s obvious (and proof that) they aren’t smart enough to make the right choices -

so the elites, through the government (FORCE), will have to make the right choice for them.

The answer to this is in the Constitution of the USA.
“There shall be FREE SPEECH.”
Has anyone made mention of the fact there is NO legal requirement that people MUST listen to the drivel of the “liberal media”? The station selector is under OUR control, not CAP. If I wish to listen I tune in. If I find myself being insulted, I exercise my right to CHOOSE and I go to another station. Even here in Mass, believe it or not, we still retain the freedom NOT to listen. Now, even this right is coming under threat from the “progressive left”.
In Nazi Germany, it was a crime to listen to forbidden radio programs. A serious crime. Is that where we, too, are headed? You answer.

It is good to want. Try this. Gather some true talent, perhaps someone who says intelligent things, is engaging and well spoken, grow an audience (takes time), and build a darn following (may take a while). Like trees in the woods: the big strong ones do well b/c of favorable conditions and natural ability to thrive. There is no conspiracy to it.

And that's what enrages the looney left. People don't want their cr*ppy talk shows, so the left thinks they can FORCE us to listen to them. They've tried and failed to get us to read newspapers, watch the alphabet news, and listen to ErrAmerika and NPR, so now they're trying to take over talk radio.

And "Whites Only" graduation ceremonies. White fraternitiers and sororities. White-only dorms, Miss White America, White History month, WET (White Entertainment Television), white rappers -- no, we have that.

I also want "diversity" in sports. (It's not quotas, don't you call it quotas -- but I'm gonna count the number of white players anyways.)

For example, only two black players at a time are allowed on any basketball court -- the other eight must be white. For starters.

"In the spring of 2007, of the 257 news/talk stations owned by the top five commercial station owners, 91 percent of the total weekday talk radio programming was conservative and only nine percent progressive."

"Our goal is not less speech, but more speech," said Free Press Policy Director Ben Scott. "We want more voices on the radio."

Wow. Here's a concept even a dumb conservative can grasp. In the above statistic, 91% is conservative and 9% is 'progressive', that represents 100% of radio air time. In order for there to be more 'progressive' talk time, there must be LESS conservative talk time. That would be, Ben, LESS speech.
