CAN LIBERALS EVER HOPE TO COMPETE IN TALK RADIO? Orrin Judd has some thoughts.
UPDATE: They’re not doing so hot on cable TV news channels, either.
ANOTHER UPDATE: James Taranto has some rather amusing thoughts:
Well for crying out loud, guys, why not dare to dream big? American liberalism is pretty pathetic if its highest aspiration is to mimic Fox, Heritage and Rush. Here’s a much more ambitious goal: Why not counter the vast right-wing conspiracy by taking over the “mainstream” media? And if it’s research you want, maybe you should set your sights on America’s system of higher education. If you could get liberals onto college and university faculties, they would have the opportunity to mold young minds as well as influence the political debate.
Imagine a world in which more than 80% of journalists vote Democratic, and in which left-liberal scholars vastly outnumber conservatives at colleges and universities across the country. It’d be a liberal dream, right?
There’s more–definitely check it out.
