Or are all the high powered stations already owned by rightwingers?


yes as well as many of the television stations

You are right Dori - we have had so much right-wing propaganda for so many years people don't know how to think.

All you have to do is ask a couple of questions and you can tell if a person listens to right-wing talk radio or not.

I asked a guy who was all for the war why he thought we should be there. His reply, "So the fighting goes on over there and not here!" No need to discuss anything with this sheeple - he listens to right-wing radio!

I hear you sadie. Can't count the number of times I have heard "So the fighting goes on over there and not here!", and you are right--no need to go any further. If you do, you hear--because I heard it on Fox and they couldn't say it if it weren't true.

That is my cue to try to not leave screaming!!!

Isn't that hell sometimes when you have to hold in that scream?? One of these days I am just going to pop into a thousand pieces.

Keith Olbermann on Bill Moyers show

It’s not often that two of the journalism’s biggest stars discuss defense contractors, liberal bias, and the 1971 Baltimore Orioles in the same interview. But that’s just what happened on PBS’ Bill Moyer’s Journal Friday, when the host sat down with anchor Keith Olbermann for a wide-ranging interview.

Moyers was interested in Olbermann’s “Special Comments,” which the MSNBC Countdown host says “became necessary” after former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld equated war opponents with Nazi appeasers.

“I [read] this ridiculous remark and I waited to see somebody respond to it,” he said. “And no one did. I’m thinking, well, you know, somebody with a platform ought to be talking about this. Somebody with a– with an avenue to respond should be– oh, yeah, I have a platform.”

Now, Olbermann’s Special Comments have become one of the most popular segments of the show. But originally, he was nervous about the public’s reception.

“I didn’t know what their reaction was going to be. I didn’t know if I was going to be gunned down as I came out of the building or put in a black car or, you know, or lauded or whatever,” he said. “People, for the most part, were ecstatic about this. And our ratings went up immediately.”

I can't get PBS (can't get any local stations) and when I heard Olbermann say he was on Bill Moyers program I was tearing my hair! Two of my favorite people!

Frustrating.

Sounds like Moyers had a particularly good show that night.
