"The Center for American Progress and Free Press today released the first-of-its-kind statistical analysis of the political make-up of talk radio in the United States. It confirms that talk radio, one of the most widely used media formats in America, is dominated almost exclusively by conservatives.
The new report - entitled "The Structural Imbalance of Political Talk Radio" - raises serious questions about whether the companies licensed to broadcast over the public radio airwaves are serving the listening needs of all Americans.
One guess what their solution is to this "problem"? More government regulation of course!
The fact that Leftist talk radio has been tried (Jim Hightower and Air America, for instance) and failed to get much of an audience was not mentioned. Most people just don't want to listen to whiners and scolds. They just want to listen to people who make sense.
Quite a few other bloggers have commented on this latest attack: e.g. here and here.
