I’m super excited that Austin finally got a local broadcast for Air America Radio. Now I can listen to it without having to sit at my computer
While listening to some random show on it the other day (no idea which) this woman (a guest) was going on and on about how Bush going to the funeral of the Pope was wrong. She was saying it was unconstitutional, illegal, etc, etc.
This is the perfect example of the trap that ALL talk radio falls into. They’re trying to make a big issue out of a small issue, probably because they have nothing better to talk about. It’s easier to rail against someone for 3 hours on a topic like this than to go research a really important topic. I guess that’s why they’re not considered “news” broadcasts, but it’s still annoying. Limbaugh perfected this tactic years ago and is probably lying 75% of the time while he does it, but people still listen and believe him.
Since (big) liberal talk radio is so new I hope they go a little bit higher. Sure, I don’t think Bush going to this funeral is a great idea, but I don’t really care. There are literally thousands of other valid issues to hammer away at Bush on. The guy is a documented liar, thief, deserter, murderer and has a corrupt government. How hard should it be to mount an organized effort to bring him down?
