Left vs. Right

When not jamming out to some Bowie on my car radio, the dial is usually set to NPR. Lately, I’ve been getting really annoyed at the liberal slant with which NPR delivers all its news. So I recently switched the dial over to 680 AM figuring I’d get a good conservative harangiung. I was right. I appreciated hearing a diffferent opinion, but couldn’t take all the attitude and scoffing, not to mention the commercials. So, as one-sided a view as NPR is, I’ll continue to listen to it because at least they’re civilized.

    I love NPR. They do have a bit of a liberal bent, and I’m OK with that. I can’t imagine having to deal with talk radio that’s both one-sided and obnoxious, though. Ugh.

    With politics, no one is civilized. Which is why I don’t pay attention to it and typically walk away from people that start talking to/screaming their opinions at me about. hahaha

    I think there are a lot of people to listen to on AM radio that run the spectrum from one-sided and obnoxious to thought provoking but fair. I think what most people seem to miss, though, is the fact that most of talk radio is ENTERTAINMENT not news. The hosts of most of these programs make this very clear. They are on the radio b/c it is a money maker. They have an audience that enjoys listening to them. What’s unnerving to me is that so many actual “journalists” in the news media are as one-sided, merely the opposite side, as the talk show hosts on AM radio, but just a lot more subtle and therefore, subversive. I wish they would just come out and admit it b/c it’s so obvious.

    Radio is for the birds. So many advertisments… so little music. Since Carol gifted me an Ipod a a few years ago for Xmas, I’ve forgotten that there is even a radio in my truck 😉
