Please, the left would kill to have the equivalent of a Rush, Hannity, Beck. They can't have it so they push the fairness doctrine.
Personally I wouldn't listen to ANY of them from either side, but be honest, you know the left is jealous as hell of the success of right wing talk shows.
Not really. Every survey in radio has shown that folks on the left, and most moderates don't listen to talk radio, or those that do listen in 15/30 min slices. Everyone listened to those surveys except Soros who tried to prove it wrong and he flamed out in 80% of the markets.
Getting information from a single voice is just not a Liberal thing to do. It is why, entertaining as they are, Olbermann and Maddow will never grow tremendously in viewership. The market just doesn't exist. And if a laser sharp Democratic, gay, female, Oxford PhD in Political Science broadcaster can't draw Liberals in, it ain't gonna happen.
The Left is not jealous of right wing talk. Some markets would like the ability to get on the air but don't have the outlet due to contractual limitations, but on a national level, NPRs morning and afternoon news pretty much covers current events on that side and reading, either through internet or actual newspapers provide comprehensive information for decision making. It's why Democrats don't always agree. We don't all get our information from a single voice. That's a good thing.
