...it is painful.
I like his thinking and the informative factual material he presents. But my patience is wearing thin from the commericial contradictions coming out of my radio. I listen to his radio show in the Seattle area. His show is interrupted multiple times every hour sometimes for as long as 5 minutes by a barrage of fraudulent advertising promising all manner of things from skin goo that will make me look 10 years younger to snake oil that will make hair grow on a cueball, magic potions that'll give the Pope a stiffy, and wondrous advice that will cure teenage rebellion or my money back! Given that I'm listening to a program that is dedicated to providing me with intelligent commentary on our society, I am puzzled and frustrated that Thom's insightful message is completely contrasted by a commercial assault of lies and attempts to defraud me dozens of times per hour. This probably doesn't match the definition of hypocrisy but it feels very much like it. How can T.H. declare for the ideals of truth and justice while accepting monetary support from the liars and crooks who sponsor his program?
As I said, it is very difficult to listen to his program on AM 1090 in Seattle. I wonder if it is the same elsewhere?
Suggestion: Why not take less profit for your programming thereby making it available to public radio?
