    Is Right wing radio useful or is it hate radio?

    The Van Jones (non) feeding frenzy

    From a Nexis search a few moments ago:
    Total words about the Van Jones controversy in the New York Times: 0.
    Total words about the Van Jones controversy in the Washington Post: 0.
    Total words about the Van Jones controversy on NBC Nightly News: 0.
    Total words about the Van Jones controversy on ABC World News: 0.
    Total words about the Van Jones controversy on CBS Evening News: 0.
    If you were to receive all your news from any one of these outlets, or even all of them together, and you heard about some sort of controversy involving President Obama's Special Adviser for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, your response would be, "Huh?" If you heard that that adviser, Van Jones, had apologized for a number of remarks and positions in the recent past, your response would be, "What?" And if you were in the Obama White House monitoring the Jones situation, you would be hoping that the news organizations listed above continue to hold the line -- otherwise, Jones, who is quite well thought of in Obama circles, would be history.

    9/5/09 UPDATE: The New York Times, ABC and NBC hold the line
    After the Jones controversy reached a boiling point on Friday, the Washington Post published a story, "White House Says Little on Embattled Jones," on page A-3 of its Saturday edition. But the New York Times remained silent on the story.
    Likewise, on Friday night the "CBS Evening News" reported the Jones matter, but ABC's "World News" and "NBC Nightly News" again failed to report the story.

    Maybe because it's not an important story.

    A communist and so called ex black nationalist, a member of STORM and was arrested during the LA riots and has an agenda to make whitey pay. having our Presidents ear, or better yet, "personnel is polcy" Van Jones, is not an important story?

    You are either stupid, a liar, or in utter denial. Which one?. you pick

    A useful idiot maybe? Yeah that must be it

    Definately useful. If it weren't for talk radio the public would never find out half of what goes on in Washington. Talk radio is the closest thing the public has to an unfiltered voice.

    Talk radio is the the conservative filter, filtering out an objective, fair, and balanced discussion. However, it shares a place along with Olberman and the stoops of the left.
