    As a traditional Conservative, as opposed to the new-age Conservatives, I can tell you that Air America did NOT fail because of one talk show host!

    It failed because the new-age Conservatives already had the support of the mega-broadcasters and Air America did not. It is the main reason that Nancy Pelosi is pushing so hard for the new agreement on Artist Royalities. She knows that a new agreement on Artist Royalites will put some of the mega-broadcasters out of business.

    Clear Channel owns more radio stations in American than any other company. They also own Premier Radio networks and own the rights to syndicate Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. Clear Channel is teetering on bankrupcy as they are currently is default of their loans. A new Artist Royality agreement would burden thier music station to the point that they possible could not survive the increased cost or at the least make it that much harder to secure alternative fianancing.

    Ed Shultz is the typical lefty...didn't get any support being a RINO in Nodak, so he started spewing the socialist views of the so called 'progressives'. He was pathetic, and his audience was dwindling in the Red River region, so it only made sense for the national dems to provide a slot for him to continue his slobbering over the current administration.

    As a current Anderson Cooper wannabe, he'll screw up eventually. I'm amazed he hasn't let the N word slip through on his 'conversations', because he's basically a congenital bigot. Talk about phoneys. I can imagine the likes of dnf and his ilk just love him.

    In the spirit of a fellow RTFer's request, I deleted my first response, and will instead only reply that UB's last sentence is as usual, off the mark. (not too bad, eh?)

    Schultz runs a pretty entertaining show. He's no lefty. Anybody who's heard him speak knows he's about as middle of the road moderate as they come. He's also a bird dog enthusiast and often talks about his Lab, Buck.
    As far as the reasons progressive radio is struggling... I'd say it's because most true lefty's don't care that much and have better things to do than listen to talk radio.

    i remember listening to him once and in the span of 1/2 hour - all i could stand - he called GWB "that son of a b___ch" in a very angry tone 4 or 5 times. if thats as middle off the road as they come then you must be falling over the edge of the left shoulder....

    Amen to that. He used to buy an afternoon of hunting at a pheasant preserve that belonged to my friends near Valley City, ND. I told him his BLF was not in condition for that property, but he insisted in running it until it dropped, and then eventually died. He doesn't have a clue about dogs, politics or life in general.

    He's a whiner that pissed and moaned about how the state wasn't 'giving' him enuff money to keep him in the state, supposedly for promoting the state. What a farce. I can see why the lefties on board are enamored with him...he's as phoney as they are.

    progressive radio failed because of venomous people like Randi Rhodes, advertising and sponsorship dollars want nothing to do with that type of caustic "journalism" (for lack of a better term) Air America or America Left on XM radio almost made Howard Stern seem tame
