: : Dave Zweifel's Plain Talk: What's wrong with right-wing radio

:
: : "To succeed, a talk show host must perpetuate the notion that his or her listeners are victims, and the host is the vehicle by which they can become empowered," wrote Shelley, who directed the news department at the Journal Co.-owned station for 11 years. "The host frames virtually every issue in us-versus-them terms. There has to be a bad guy against whom the host will emphatically defend those loyal listeners."

: : Shelley wrote that conservative radio hosts around the country, including Sykes and Wagner, were e-mailed daily talking points from the Bush White House, the Republican National Committee and, during election years, GOP campaign operations. They would also check frequently with other talk show hosts, including Rush Limbaugh's Web site and the online sites of conservative bloggers, to make sure everyone was on the same page.

: Duh? These kinds of writeups are so funny. You could just say the same exact thing about progressive/liberal talk.
