Just what the world needs-- the same conservative talkers, over and 
over, on station after station.  No offense to my conservative friends 
(and yes I do have some), but what would the harm be to let a couple of 
high-profile leftie talkers be heard?  I know Clear Channel's ownership 
is extremely (severely?) conservative, and the Mays family was 
well-known for its support of the Bush administration, but seriously, 
it's good radio to have some different points of view, and the myth that 
nobody listens to leftie talkers has been disproven in a number of 
markets.  Ed Schultz is on  the air at several otherwise 
all-conservative stations, and somehow the republic hasn't fallen. 
Hannity (to cite one example) does great on his TV show, but his radio 
show has gotten very poor numbers in numerous markets;  and yet, he 
keeps getting added to new markets.  I just don't get it.
