I think its time that a discussion of the outright lies that eminate from GOP Talk Radio is begun. GOP Talk Radio has gone beyond being some sort of entertainment phenom and has evolved into a political organization in it's right, that spreads the spectrum from local political operatives to national political operative "hosts".
These haters and liars have had a profound, and largely negative impact on our electoral process. It is no accident that 23% of Texas thinks Barack is a Muslim. They spent the entire campaign pushing that and other crap, and like Limbaugh in the opening example, routinely trot out the most base lies and dress them up as truth, which is then disseminated to the rest of our media and to the Internet.
Myself, I think it is time to return to the Fairness Doctrine. If these hacks had provided factual information to support their views in a thoughtful way, I would not think it was necessary, but they do not. They spew a stream of lies. Yesterday I heard Houston local radio fascist, Pat Gray say that Obama "advocated a global tax" and that the "UN has been against the United States since it was founded", both bare faced and ridiculous lies. If they are going to persist in it, we need a method where the lies can be refuted immediately on the same media, so our elections can be over issues instead of the wasting of immense time refuting morons who push ridiculous lies like this:
