Even if it gets messy, public discourse is preferable to the un-American practice of propaganda. But it's obvious any government regulation today attempting to restore balance to political talk radio would fail as it's current priorities lie in cooperating with the "big six" media oligarchies. Do we need to censor Hannity and Limbaugh? Absolutely not - censorship is the last thing we need now, we instead need a public proclamation of shame from the broadcasting trade, the religious sector, parent groups, journalists, educators, watchdog and consumer groups decrying intentional distortion.
We need to decide what public media in America should look like. I for one will teach my children not to name-call, hide facts, overgeneralize, or "practice to deceive". I will also teach them American history, our origins, how and why our Constitution was crafted, and how people lose sight of brotherhood in the pursuit of wealth. This because America is a once-great story I still believe in. If you believe Americans need more intrusion, mounting international debt, underhanded business practices and endless asymmetrical war, enjoy, because the propaganda is catapulted weekdays from noon to six, check your local listings.
