Why Liberal Talk Radio Fails


Recommended Posts

Air America Radio and Al Franken were a flop.

 

Caca Radio, as I like to call it, doesn't have a large enough Liberal audience to make it big outside their local, niche markets.

 

 

 

Air America's demise, other than hosts that didn't understand talk radio....

 

"The network was financially troubled, however. A scandal involving nearly a million dollars in loans from a Boys and Girls Club in New York secretly transacted by Evan Cohen came out in 2005 and was a source of negative publicity. The loans were repaid, and in October 2006, mounting debts forced Air America Radio to file Chapter 11 bankruptcy."

Real success requires real numbers. The progressive communists are only 20% of the real population...they have no real numbers. Their game of smoke and mirrors supported by the media gives them an advantage in "fake" numbers.

 

Same goes for gays...they are around 2% of the population....but have a billion dollars worth of supporting media to drive their "fake" numbers. Not long ago the media had everyone convinced their numbers were 12% of the population...a complete lie

Liberal talk radio fails because the hosts are pompous Self Righteous assholes, who bore the life out of their audience. Seriously someone should file a wrongful death suit against liberal talk radio.

"Seriously someone should file a wrongful death suit against liberal talk radio." LOL

 

I heard "wrist-slitting" in their audience was also a problem? :)

 

 

Let's take a jog over to our favorite TV turd...

I wish gays were 12% of the population, I would be getting laid more often than I am now. actually I should be careful what I wish for. A rise in the homosexual population, is certain to bring a rise in the liberal population, and I simply can not stomach that.

They fail because no one wants to listen.

No one wants to listen because both sides of the political isle listen to conservative radio. If people want a liberal circle jerk all they have to do is turn on MSNBC. For all the whining about Fox being conservative, its not nearly as right leaning as talk radio. Fox is actually as advertised. Fair and balanced, giving air time to all sides of an issue. Right wingers listen to talk radio to be entertained and to hear events through a conservative lens. Lefties listen to right wing talk radio to get their rage on, it fuels their need to be angry. There is no market for a liberal circle jerk on the radio. Its tired, its boring, its just not fun.

Most people who listen to talk radio, meaning right leaning talk radio, are doing so while at work which obviously excludes a great many on the left who do nothing productive at all. Instead, the Democrat parasitic dependency class (DPDC)is sitting on their collective asses and playing video games, interacting with on-line porn, or watching mindless entertainment on the television while they await their next handout from their political masters.

I worked in talk radio for yrs, the rightwingers own all the stations. That pretty much explains it. Ive seen 3 major liberal talk show hosts, one of which I was the producer, with sky high ratings and a market in the tens of millions, get fired at their peak by the RW station owners. Sometimes, a hostile takeover occurs, and the liberal host is fired without cause and the station left to rot and die.

it's all good for the capitalist repubs, they just write it off.

The only "Liberal" show I like is actually not really a political show. It's Todd n Tyler on Z-92 in Omaha, NE. They have been sindicated a wee bit even. But what keeps me listening is their blatant stupidity and low-brow humor which they are known for. They are a morning gig afterall.

 

The rest of the liberals are MIND NUMBINGLY BORING. That is why nobody listens. Rush Limbaugh is a Rebublican water carrier, but at least he is interesting to listen to and seems likeable as well, which is required of the host to be successful.

Pity that I can no longer politically call Dano Bivins "that Bivins Boy" now that he has turned African American. That being said, I'd love to know the names of the three major talk show hosts that the Bivins B-y screwed out of lucrative careers and million-listener audiences!

liberal talk radio fails simply because liberals don't have the imagination to deal with that sort of medium. they need tv, which tends

to absorb the senses more and dull the brain more completely. without the visuals, they are forced to think more. and thinking is just something they don't do.

It's radio lol. Look at the big scoreboard. Rush lies with every breath just to get his next oxytocin fix. Or Dominican underage prostitute fix. If there is a helll he will be first in line to be roasted like a pig. You would never trust him to watch your kids. Why listen to his lies?

The reason that CON radio is more succesful is simple: money. If the financial backing were equalized, political talk radio would be radicalized. Think about this: the most famous liberal talk show host become a US Senator while the most famous CON talk show host became a pill-popping drug addict and still retains his audience of mindless dittoheads.
