“Never get into an argument with a talk radio show  host that has millions of listeners.”

~Pronk Palisades

President Obama made a big mistake when he suggested that Republicans stop listening to Rush Limbaugh.

A very big mistake for many reasons on many levels.

Rush is right. The Republican Party has not been listening to him for several years and they have been losing elections.

Since I listen to several talk shows including Rush, when a President attacks or criticises a talk show host, he is indirectly attacking their loyal listeners.

Most talk show listeners are likely voters that will remember when the next election comes around.

I am on the same page as Bill, Neal, Glen, Rush, Sean, Mark, Laura, Michael, John , and Monica just to name a few, that also hope that President Obama  completely fails in his attempt to implement his socialist agenda.  President Obama is an economy wrecker and job destroyer.

I do not want to get along with Democrats, I want to defeat them!

“…President Obama warned Republicans on Capitol Hill today that they need to quit listening to radio king Rush Limbaugh if they want to get along with Democrats and the new administration.

“You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done,” he told top GOP leaders, whom he had invited to the White House to discuss his nearly $1 trillion stimulus package….”

Conservatives top talk radio

“…Conservatives and right-leaners still rule the talk-radio universe.

Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Michael Savage are the top three “most important” talk radio hosts in the country, according to the annual “Heavy Hundred” list released yesterday by Talkers magazine, an industry publication.

Laura Schlessinger is in fourth place followed by Glenn Beck, Laura Ingraham, Don Imus, Ed Schultz, Mike Gallagher and Neal Boortz.

They are all genuine stars according to Michael Harrison, who edits the magazine. More than 5,000 radio hosts across the country were among the contenders; the judgment criteria included audience numbers, media buzz and more subjective fare — the “total flavor” of a host, according to Mr. Harrison.

“The legends go marching on. These are truly great radio personalities who have proven themselves, who have real history. Rush, Sean, Michael, Dr. Laura — they’re right up there with people like Arthur Godfrey. They really are legends,” Mr. Harrison said.

He rejects the idea that talk radio is strictly conservative territory, though.

“American talk radio is not all right-wing political chatter. There’s a lot of diversity. Sure, we have our conservative stars. We’ve also got liberal talkers, or people like George Noory covering the paranormal and Kim Kommando on computers,” Mr. Harrison said. …”

 Apparently Senator Stabenow did not get my memo to radical socialists.

Fairness Doctrine Watch: Sen. Stabenow makes new pro-gagging noise

By Michelle Malkin

“…You know grass-roots conservatives on talk radio and in New Media are getting under the Democrats’ skin when they publicly renew their Fairness Doctrine agenda again.See.

Loud Folks, keep cranking it up. …”

I am looking at your list of top 100. I didn’t count how many I have actually heard. I have certainly never heard of Tammy Bruce. She seems to be all over the place, Pro gay, pro choice, pro death penalty.

I am surprised people like Savage and Beck are up there. As you know Savage ridiculed autistic kids. He is certainly anti-gay. Beck is dumb as a box of rocks.

In a country that is basically down the middle it hard to believe there are so many popular conservative talk show hosts.

For smarts I would certainly pit Rachel Maddow and Thom Hartmann against any of the goofs in the top 5.

I think it was HL Mencken who said never under estimate the gullibility of the American public.

I have listened to over twenty of the top 100 mainly to compare style, format, and knowledge of subjects talked about.

You need to be both entertaining and informative and have a definite point of view and interests–Limbaugh, Bennett, Boortz, Ingraham, Levin, work for me as do Beck, Savage, Miller, Doyle, Humphries, and Gibson when I have the time.

A mixture of Limbaugh, Bennett, Beck and Boortz would be interesting to me–call it a traditionalist libertarian with a sense of humor.

Not interested in talk about sports. Bores me to tears and I tune them out when they get on the subject of golf, football, etc.

Maddow would lose out to Limbaugh, Bennett, and Boortz–Beck would tie but is funnier.

There is one woman on the list I cannot stand–Boortz has the same problem with her.

Some idiot of a program director replaced John Gibson with her not too long ago–I do not know what he was thinking.

The good ones do a lot of reading and research to make it fresh and think about what they have read.

Many just wing it and unfortunately it shows and get stale over time.

Over 50% the country is conservative/libertarian.

Only about 25% are liberal/progressive.

There is a lot competition in talk radio.

Instead of playing music you are playing callers.

Good callers make the show.

Nuts do not. The best shows are tightly screened and have many callers

If what you are saying resonates with the listeners you will get market share.

If not you will be dumped or have a small market share.
