>>the Radio Equalizer blog has several comments
from people on
Democratic Underground, the Chicago Tribune, and Huffington Post; folks
who said they couldn't stand his voice; that the show was the only one
where "the
advertising was indistinguishable from the news"; they called him an
"old fascist"
and said he can "kiss Reagan's butt in hell". Stay classy. (One
HuffPost reader said
Harvey had the same "arch-conservative, right-wing, hate-filled
philosophy" as "Limblob".)
But who knows, maybe some folks on the Right hated him too and I
haven't seen those yet.<<

This is what you get when people are driven by agendas rather than facts, because if you listened to Paul Harvey even once, you'd know that none of those opinions are based on facts...not even close.  Yes, Harvey was conservative, but that's about all they got right.  Calling him a fascist and hate-filled is an outright lie, and claiming that he didn't clearly delineate his commercial copy from his news-and-comment copy is more evidence that they weren't listening.

Harvey had the gift, which is rapidly vanishing from talk radio, of advancing his views without being snotty, argumentative or libelous.  He had his opinions, he stated them, but he didn't ram them down anyone's throat, didn't claim to be some sort of fount of all wisdom and certainly did not, in his many years behind the mike, become full of himself.
