I'm sick of these brain dead morons (Lars Larson or Greg Clapper) having the air time and availability to the public to insult, demean, and in many cases, libel folks. They are free to lie, distort, and manipulate the truth without any requirement for "equal time". That important safeguard was removed by the Reagan Administration. Our (progressive and liberal) talk shows are few and far between and main stream media is really not interested in fair and balanced. What to do. How to somehow put our political hands around these revolting people's necks and silence them or better still, make the stations that carry them offer rebuttals to thier outrageous statements. How about posting a list of the advertisers on these noxious shows and inviting people to write them (the advertisers) and state that until there is equal time provided for responce, their business will be boycotted. These radio managers only pay attention to the bottom line. If their ad spots get canceled, they wake up real fast. Also, advertisers are very sensative to the loss of customers. They'll get it real quick if thousands of letters are sent to them that say:
"I'm sure you make a decent and competitive product. I've been your customer for years. However, I can no longer buy or use your product until you remove your participation on the Greg Clapper Show. Mr. Clapper abuses the truth, insults guests that offer proof of his mis-statements, and has become a hod carrier for the ultra right wing of our country. At the very least, he should be challanged with equal time and rational thought. If you believe in democracy and fairness, you will make your concerns known to the management of KTOK radio and remove your financial support. I'll be pleased to become a customer again once we have balanced the commentary. And, I'll be pleased to become a walking, talking endorser of your business as one that responds to reason, rationality, and responsibility."
