    Probably because free thinking liberals don't need 'some assembly required'.

    No one wants to hear left-winged propaganda and lies.

    Right-wing talk radio has something that the left will never be able to compete against.

    Truth, facts, and ideas in the real world.

    The left will never be able to compete in this arena.

    Never.

    Smear, spin, and propaganda IS NOT an antidote.
    See above post.

    But they need podcasts now for some reason?

    lol

    Face it, there is no answer to RW talk because nobody wants to listen to LW talk.

    That is simple history.

    I'm sure the Right Wing Cult will come out with a Nazi, White Supremacist, KKK, and Pedophile radio show soon.

    The reason it did not is that it tried to follow the RW Talk radio model. When you rely on commercial sponsors and a radio station for broadcast that are subject to boycotts and backlash.

    There is no way the RW can shut down pod casts.

    I listened to talk radio since the early 80s. If there were a moderate or liberal talk host...they were eventually ran off with calls to the station or to the station's advertisers.

    Didn't seem to flow very well. Be interested in hearing opinions from the more left leaning forum members.

    I have difficulty with auditory processing; figurative language, background noise and rapid speech are my mortal enemies. I cannot absorb it.

    You know, every once in a while, you could use your own brain and not the giant one-brain of the Republican party.

    Speaking of which, going to Gov. Larry Hogan's fundraiser again next month. I'll post pics, don't tell the libs here I'm going, they'll disown me again.

    Actually, there are vast differences between the two sides of our national media. Leftist media really only exists in the minds of right wingers, they consider anything that does not promote them and their beliefs to be leftist. We really do not have a leftist media here at all, we just have degrees of voices that give a different voice than right wing media. I do listen to right wingers, we read their missives here do we not? I don't even have to bother listening to Rush or Sean or Levin or Savage, they are all very well represented here and online. The days of Bill Buckley are over, it is now just a barrage of blowhards repeating the same stuff every day mixed in with some new conspiracy charges. Sorry, but thinking people, objective people, do not bother with right wing media. We know snake oil salesmen when we hear them.

    We just do't want to hear non-stop bashing of fellow Americans, right wingers live on it. We simply do not want to spend that amount of time listening to someone tell us how to think. There are some good lefties on the radio these days though, Norman Goldman and Thom Hartman are two of them but after a half hour they get tiresome as well. Mike Malloy is the only leftie voice that does what the typical right winger on radio does, he screams, insults, has tantrums and he has a very, very small audience. On the other hand, Mark Levin is about to get a spot on Fox News, that should tell you all you need to know about the right wing.
