On thursday 10-28 Thom was in Chicago and the fill in host was not really talking about the election so I switched to Beck. After listening to his hate filled, be very scared- rant I decided that being part of any "commercial" talk radio audience was a big waste of my time. 39 minutes an hour of broken up segments, 21 minutes of commercials. Also after stewart's comments about cable news why waste even more time with all that hate. It has only been a few days but I'm a lot less worried and much happier. Life goes on away from that endless corporate sponsored hate filled small segment of our country that most Americans don't really pay attention to it anyway. I'm back into the main stream.
I do listen to kpfk (kpfk.org) from Los Angeles which is not commercial and has many excellent hosts such as Ian Master and Blase Bonpane.
