And yet they never learn

You want to know why conservatives rule talk radio?

Because of crap like this:

Remember all those news stories in 1993 about how the nomination of former ACLU lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg to replace conservative Justice Byron White on the United States Supreme Court would “tilt the balance of the court to the left?”

Of course you don’t. Because there weren’t any.

Ya don't say....

Most of the people running the Has-Been Media back then are still in charge today. Or it's their like-minded successors. If you read the newspapers back in 1993 you would never have heard about "far-left nominee Ginsburg", or "left-wing judge Ginsburg", despite the fact that the woman is a card carrying member of the ACLU. The only way you could find about about how far left Ginsburg was, was by listening to conservative radio, which in 1993 meant Rush Limbaugh and various local DJs. The conservative backlash against the Has-Been media started on the radio, and we've controlled the airwaves ever since, at least in national ratings. I make no guarantees when it comes to local nutjobs. God knows Seattle had more than it's share.

I guess what really makes my mind pop is the fact that the Has-Been Media still tries to call itself "objective". They haven't been objective in fifty years, and they ain't gonna change now.
