    Default Are they worth listening too?

    I seldom post on POTUS much less start a thread but I was just listening, about 10 minutes worth, to a national radio host and it made me question something.

    Out of these host Rush, Glen B, Keith O, or Howard Stern are any of them actually worth your time to listen to? Personally they are all just shock jocks making a buck.

    Sorry rant is over.

    I will listen to three of the four for entertainment purposes, but you couldnt have picked more polar opposites than those four...as with most other indulgences in this world, a little of something is good, too much of it and its sickening

    If I get an opportunity, I will "occasionally" listen to Rush.

    They are entertainers, pure and simple. Their airtime is paid for by advertisers who wish to target the audiences that tune in to hear what they want to hear.
    Driving to work I listen to both the conservative and progressive local AM.
    Driving home I listen to the local talk jock. Long trips I check out audio books from the library.

    Yes that was my purpose to choose polar opposites. The older I get the more I like talk radio but I think I'll limit mine to NPR, I hope thats right, and ESPN.

    I find it hard to believe that people actually believe any of the drivel that spews from those radicals mouths. To me it doesn't matter if you lean left or right it should be insulting to your intelligence to believe what any of them say.OK so the rant went a little further.

    everything gets run through the bull$hit filter although I tend to agree with many conservative positions.

    I currently listen to local sports radio more than anything else.

    Many Sunday nights driving home from HT's or training, I find myself tuning in NPR's "Car Talk" with click and clack, the tappit brothers. IMO that's what talk radio should be...
    Then when that's over, "she who must be obeyed", makes me endure the Irish music program that follows...

    Leaving the conservative principles for 'progressivism", are you Tim?

    Or were you never in the conservative camp?

    Until you hear NPR pushing global warming, or gun control, or animal rights and far out conservationists, you might find it to be your cup of tea. I used to listen also, until they started programming Bill Moyer. That's like listening to Bill Ayers on steroids.

    Keep listening to Stern. He won't be there very much longer. That entire satellite operation is going under pretty soon, so catch him while you can.

    If you asked most of the 'libs' on this forum, every one of the rest of us listens to Rush and Beck religiously.

    Personally, I choose to listen to something that I can learn from or it can benefit my life-Dave Ramsey. Other than that, I am listening to the local classic rock station. On the way to going hunting, I always try to catch Coast to Coast AM...those nutjobs will keep you awake in the truck at 3 am...
