Radio is cleaning up the nation

Rush Limbaugh calls it the drive-by media (and in the case of television, he's actually right). But the myth of a left-wing media conspiracy is as ridiculous as Fox News being "fair and balanced."

A recent study has given statistical heft to what most of us already knew. Talk radio is filled with conservative wing nuts.

Here, in Hartford, if you listen to talk radio at all, it's nearly inescapable. And WTIC-AM is the worst of a bad bunch. One feels that WTIC uses the great work of Colin McEnroe as their justification to fill their airwaves with hate, duplicity, inaccuracy and right-wing blather the rest of the day.
