I was hanging out at the yahoo boards under the news articles when i read the news about Howard Stern basically being fired and losing alot of airtime across the nation. It was an amazing argument. The Bush haters were yelling at how there is some big Republican conspiracy to take him off the air because he is Anti Bush. This despite the fact that he is losing raitings and losing Clear Channel nearly 2 million a year in fines for his program. (Probably in part because he is competing with Glenn Beck) I think the funniest thing i saw about it was that people were yelling that if we dont like Howard Stern we just turn him off. Yet these people havent figured out is that is what we have been doing! That is why his ratings are low and that is why he is off the area because the people are choosing not to listen to him. Anyway I figured this would be an interesting topic to bring up since it covers the topics of censorship vs the first ammendment and the market of ideas. Why is conservative talk so popular? Why is it beating out Shows like Stern? Any thoughts?
