NPR is almost the exclusive place on the radio where you can get a great sense of liberal and conservative viewpoints. Listening to liberal or conservative radio is a waste of time because: 1) it is probably 1 part content to 2 parts commericials and news reports and 2) no actual in depth discussion on subjects, only judgmental trash. Listening to Schultz is about as painful as listening to Limbaugh.

    As an Independent, each side brings something to the table.
    That is a false equivalency, at least as far as AM Radio is concerned. Having an opinion doesn't mean it is a justified opinion. You can't give creationism equal time in the science classroom merely because all opinions are supposedly equal.
    We just need to sift through there garbage to get that nugget of sense making.
    Hence cut the garbage, listen to NPR "Diane Rehm Show" and "Talk of the Nation" where you'll have qualified intelligent libs and conservatives talking about a particular issue for an hour. Too much time to saturate with sound bites, distortions, and lies.

    Honestly, it doesn't matter to me if someone is liberal or conservative. What matters is how they get their information and how diametrically opposed to conflicting data they are. The Glenn Beck channel is made for only one type of person, someone that wants to be told something very specific. In the Information Age, there is no excuse for such a channel.

    That statement applies equally to everything in Dish's 2xx channel range, and most of the rest of them as well. Were you saying the same thing when Current, FSTV, MSNBC, FoxNews, et al were added?

    By the way, I've got almost every episode of when he was on Fox stored on several EHDs. Since they all have exactly the same description (thanks Dish!) the thought of actually trying to watch any of them looking for anything in particular would be ludicrous. There was a lot of good information contained in those programs and it made me think and do massive amounts of research on my own. If not for Beck I would probably never have picked up "The 5000 Year Leap" or the Federalist Papers. No other guy on TV has done that for me, with the exception of David Jeremiah, but I was reading the Bible already anyway.

    Perhaps it is time for a mass purge of stuff I'll never have time to watch again.

    1) Not equally. That is a Moore-Coulter false equivalency.
    2) MSNBC is a tabloid news channel and pretty much worthless, except for emergency reporting. More importantly MSNBC and CNN are about ratings and generating revenue, and very little about decent news and issue coverage. They are driven by profit... while Fox is driven by a flat out political agenda.
    3) "were added"? They have been around for a while, so it'd been hard to complain recently about them being in the lineup (thankfully I don't pay for MSNBC or Fox, though do get CNN which is at least decent during elections, though these days it seems better to just go online instead of watch a dozen commentators try to make their opinions seem important). I think Current is what Newsworld International became... which was a dark day.

    Beck's channel will be Fox News without the pretense of pretending to care about objectivity. There is no liberal equivalent to this sort of channel, nor should there be.
