SOOOOO, the libs can't handle that and want to "legislate" (Hillary's words) to stifle the conservatives. How pathetic can they get?
So much for freedome.

1/ This is hearsay so I reckon ckblv is clutching at neo-con straws for some kind of outrage
2/ Look at Clear Channel and other 'agenda-driven' right-wing fundamentalist companies like Fox. They promote these shock-jocks as long as they stick to the script. American radio is dictated by money and sponsorship rather than what the public actually wants to listen to.
3/ How responsible are Clear Channel when they let Rush Limbaugh pull stunts like 'Adopt-A-Soldier' (clearly a way of tapping into American ) whilst have deliberately sabotaged previous legislation to offer political counterbalance on AFRTS (see legislation by Tom Harkin).
4/ In England we have both liberal and right-wing radio presenters, they often have the same listeners- I enjoy listening to George Galloway as much as I love booing every word that comes out of Nick Ferrari's mouth. People like listening to Rush wether they hate him or not.
5/ Freedom has no 'e' at the end just as potatoe doesn't
