Death Of Talk Radio?

Tim Cuprisin of MSJ has a posting on his blog regarding the relationship between talk radio and the presidential elections. His point is basically, they don't know what they're talking about. (Note to Mr. Cuprisin: I could've told you that a long, long time ago.)

Mr. Cuprisin links to Michael Medved and cites some bits from Medved's blog showing how ineffective and inaccurate talk radio is becoming as people see through their facades. The most notable of these is:

"The talk radio jihad against Mac and Huck hasn’t destroyed or even visibly damaged those candidates. But it has damaged, and may help destroy, talk radio"

Mike Mathias at Pundit Nation (this is third mention today-You'd think he could've done that all here and given me a day off, sheesh) links to another local blogger citing Medved's site, but adds one interesting question:

So, the voters are stupid and Rush Limbaugh know what’s best for them? Hasn't that been the conservative critique about the so-called "liberal" news media?

All I can add to this is to paraphrase an old saying: "From their mouths to God's ear."


  1. Why do I think that the trolls who contribute to this pointless, little-read website, are just sick with envy of the folks who actually have audiences?
