What a shame

Left radio is a dying breed.

014 will mark the beginning of a massive change for liberal talk radio across the country. In New York, WWRL 1600 AM will flip to Spanish-language music and talk, throwing Ed Schultz, Thom Hartmann, Randi Rhodes, and Alan Colmes off the air. In Los Angeles, KTLK 1150 will be dumping Stephanie Miller, Rhodes, Bill Press and David Cruz off the air in favor of Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. In San Francisco, KNEW 960 will leave Miller, Hartmann, and Mike Malloy without a radio home in the market.

Thanks to radio consolidation and the secondary status of leftist talk in major markets across the country, the final death knell for liberal talkers could be tolling. Leftist talkers simply don’t have the same radio draw as conservatives; KTLK was ranked #41 in the market in November 2013, with WWRL registering almost no pulse at all. KNEW registered just an 0.4 in the San Francisco market in December 2013, placing it #31 in the market.

The failure of commercial leftist talk means that only government-sponsored NPR remains in many major markets.

You KNOW it's bad when you can't even stay on the radio in The Gay Bay, L.A. and NYC. That's alright, though. The feds are more than happy to support causes that can't support themselves. ::pullhair::

NPR...

Trouble sleeping?  Turn on NPR...the soothing nonsensical muted monotonous drone will lull anybody to sleep!  If not for taxpayer funds, that crap would all fold!

See, ultimately it doesn't matter when you can just use the organs of the State to disseminate your ideology. This is a study on the difference between conservatives and the Left, and why the Left has been winning in the culture war: our side plays by the rules, it risks its own money to compete in an open marketplace, whereas the Left just uses its operatives in the bureaucracy to bypass things like market forces.

So yeah it's great to point out that no one voluntarily wants to listen to their ideology, but Leftism doesn't GAS about "voluntarily" anything. Doesn't matter that they're failing in radio when they can instead confiscate your earnings and use it to indoctrinate your children in the tenets of socialism (they refer to this as "school").

Yup, good point, cannot ever lose sight of their decades old war on the youth of America and using every organ of government to advance their ideology.  It is yet another testament to their successful strategy of incrementalism...they are at the point where their crap is tolerable by the majority of Americans...that 50% of the public is a recipient of some sort of governmental support shows their success...as well as illustrates the unsustainable trend to their own demise...and ours.  Many deserve what is coming, many like us do not.  I'll remind them lest they forget.
