jerks act like they forgot about radio.

Do you guys listen to much radio? Most of us drive at least to and from work. Personally I listen to only sports talk or heavy rock stations.

Political shows? Numbers show that lots of us consume the stuff.

Nothing on the regular. I've got playlists of songs mostly. I do like to switch it to AM radio sometimes. It's difficult occasionally, but mostly just hilarious. Hannity is one of my occasional guilty pleasures.

Sports radio generally, although I do switch to a conservative AM station for a while most days to see what they are talking about, and HOW they are framing the discussion.

I am unclear what you guys were talking about on FISA/dossier subject, been trying to pay more attention to legislative process and issues until special counsel results come out.

The dribs and drabs of details from the investigation don't mean much to me.

In my state we have a boring but relatively effective Republican governor, gets along well with Democrat leaders and is popular among voters. Still having trouble getting mass transit working reliably though.

Down here I can listen to Limbaugh or Levin. I like levin because he gets so mad. Haven't listened in a long time because it's just constant victim card crap.

I always find it interesting that trump support thinks all the opposition comes from the influence of media/deep state/what have you.

Those of us who have been around the block a while oppose him because of his behavior in business and what he has actually said and done while president. It's not liberal or conservative, it's what is good for the US short and longer term economically and diplomatically. The stock market position is not an indication of financial health of average Americans.

We are just not seeing any depth of understanding by trump on the issues of the day, and certainly no continuity of principle. He has no interest in building a coalition to solve problems.

Progressive talk radio.

Ive heard of two of them but never heard their shows.

MSM radio?

I like listening to NPR, but tend to turn it off when the news is getting stale. I can only hear about a Trump gaffe for about half a day before I don't want to hear it anymore. Back during the RFRA crap with Pence/Indiana in the news, that merry-go-round lasted for weeks, I switched to Bob & Tom. I'd rather get cancer than purposely subject myself to news coverage on Mike Fudging Pence for two weeks straight. He's an altar fudgeboi, everyone knows it, RFRA wasn't unprecedented for him in the least, corporations can stop virtue signalling any time.

for me radio is either local sports stations or local conservative political talkradio. its pretty funny when CNN runs the "breaking news" for stuff thats days or many hours old, and really not relevant. i don't care who Mueller is questioning this week or soon, Im just waiting for conclusion time. Dont care about leaks.

what do we have to give trump for southern border security to get lasting immigration reform/ DACA resolution. even trump has ruled out the contiguous 2200 mile tall solid wall, so whats the least money it wil take to let him satisfy his base and be effective deterrent?

lets work on that while registering new voters and increasing turnout for 2018 so we can start to return to normal!

We are the only democracy that I know of which discourages and disenfranchises the electorate. It's a shame.

Non-Hispanic whites remain the only segment of the U.S. population where deaths outpace births, the agency reports.

"While all other groups experienced natural increase (having more births than deaths) between 2015 and 2016," the Census says, "the non-Hispanic white alone group experienced a natural decrease of 163,300 nationally."

I've only heard of John Fugelsang and Hal Sparks. They're political comedians from what I've seen. Didn't know they were "pundits" or "analysts". Certainly not someone I get the news from.

The others I'm unaware of.

Yeah. We don't think for ourselves. We've all been brainwashed. I've seen John Oliver's show and laughed before, so that means I get my news from him apparently.

It's just the easiest way to dismiss a dissenting opinion. We're guilty too, but they take the cake.

One of the most fascinating parts of the last year is watching Fox News, the number one cable news source in America, pretend that they aren't mainstream media. It's been a winning strategy too. Imagine McDonalds just stating unequivocally that they aren't a fast food chain.

Also watching Trump and Republicans gain almost unprecedented control of the government, and then convince their base they are either powerless against the stifling Democrats, or that they aren't the "elites" who control the government. He'll, their still deflecting Trumps issues to Hillary's. She just an old lady now. If you believe she's just as powerful or influential as the President, then you're mistaken.

It's quite shocking to me the depths of which they are still trusted by some, especially considering that those that trust them were so anti-establishment and anti-government not only a year ago. I miss the Conservatives who were interested in holding the powerful accountable.

Appreciate your honesty here. For what it's worth, I don't think anyone that discusses issues here is what you described as "Evergreen College Liberals." I also don't think you specifically just absorb MSM/Hollywood talking points and nothing else.

Those "liberals" never show up to discuss anything here and actually called the politics forum a "hate forum" when it started. I also believe they are the reason we had to remove "political discussions" out of general in the first place. Liberal talking points are still okay there, but once you challenge those, it becomes a political discussion and isn't okay.

That's what is most baffling to me. You have a sizable group on the left with real institutional power (media, university, big tech) that is against and actively attacks open forums and actual free speech. These people are and always will be a bigger threat to society than any extreme fringe group you can point to on "the right." Well, at least until those major institutions make major changes, which is in some ways inevitable.

In fairness, I have seen people who describe themselves as liberal speak against this openly on this forum and in PMs, but I believe them to be in the minority. I really dislike the "guilt by association" garbage too. By even having dialogue with "right wingers" (anyone right of Stalin) you've already set yourself apart.

How do you respond to these people when they say you're wrong for having discussions across the aisle? They're not uncommon. Because of the college in town, we get a lot of college age folks that come from all over the state, even outside. I see them around town and even know some and have gotten into exchanges with them (can't really call it a conversation). They all seem to have the same style... Thick rimmed glasses, peacoats and scarves. The men are very feminine and the women are as intelligent as the stereotypical valley girl.

Anyway, ranting a bit. I don't group you in with that crowd though.

I listen to NPR on my commute, read some articles from the NYT and Washington Post, but mostly Reuters.

The news regarding politics mostly just makes me angry and sad.

It was hidden in the bushes of the Google search. I'm not happy I found it. Think hard before clicking.

In the summers (for baseball season)

WFAN and Espn radio locally for ball games and for baseball sports talk radio.

Year round. 103.9 which is old school hip hop and r&b on the weekends and we just got a contemporary alt rock station in nyc back for the first time in a decade 92.3 that rarely if ever leave my dial.


I'm just now exploring pandora which Is pretty great. I have an oddly romantic notion of radio. My love of baseball and the idea of having the ball game on the radio while I garden or swim, have lunch out side, sip a beer on a warm night or read a book with game on in the background there's just something I still love to this day about it.

Finally got around to watching this. Quite disturbing, but actually a great presentation on what IS a real-life creep. I guess this was part of series he does called "Internet Insanity." I'll have to check out the other videos. Really glad he completely censored the clip towards the end.
