Mainstream Media Shocked at Self-Government

[i]Editor's Note: The mainstream media reports on talk radio's influence as if self-government is evil.[/i]

Talk shows influence immigration debate
By CHARLES BABINGTON, Associated Press Writer

Michael Harrison, editor of the talk show industry magazine Talkers, said immigration has replaced the Iraq war as the most discussed topic and has led many conservative hosts to show more loyalty to the anti-amnesty issue than to the Republican Party.

"I think talk radio should be credited with possibly saving the American people from George Bush's immigration bill," Harrison said, adding that he and his magazine are nonpartisan.

I'm sure some genius congres critter will offer an amendment to McCain-Feingold that will close this "talk show loophole" so that the common people can no longer recklessly talk about what government does over the airwaves.
