What makes a good talk show -- What makes a good talk show host as a person who can speak from my heart has depth range.
And also a sense of humor I think that a sense of humor in today's talk -- world is so critical.
So the you can bond with your listeners of as a human being.
I think that political ideology is not necessarily the the necessary ingredients in and being great hosts are really doesn't matter whether -- -- our -- it does I mean but it doesn't matter to the point where that's all it is because there are many.
Conservatives and liberals out there and that's all they have.
If they only have political ideology that's that's not a successive Foreman is -- -- Double image actually signing off the air because they can continue and we have to make at this time I think we have to make it a situation where they can stay on the number one.
But also to help bring them back I really believe -- that.
Liberals you say in your book certainly don't extend charity toward conservative talk radio they'd prefer that you not be allowed.
Access to opinions and information that conflicts with their own -- is I take more calls from conservative I put -- -- -- -- I would cut off.
Look at you know does the show all the time I've probably put on more and a and a matter what I do you liberals don't want to hear other four interviewed him and how many conservatives gobbling them and how many conservative against Cleveland on.
I think that's a bad rap you give liberals when you generalize.
Well I I've worked here for liberal company and -- told many times.
I could not to express their point of view on the year.
And I was told that you can go to Britain's liberal point of that I drew expressed by conservative point of view on the year.
And that that sold bothered me in the eighties and nineties it stuck with isn't a talk show us.
-- Jimmy as a program director and my bosses and you could not express your lip a liberal point of -- a conservative I'm more conservative rather that's Cabrera on the air that's correct.
And I can't name names but I gotta tell you it -- it etched a deep scars aren't equities which on the stations that gives us opinion driven yes and they were all liberal.
Yes really yes but that's changed -- -- It's.
Twenty years ago I had the feeling in my.
Which say the businesses a lot like that little immature but they're liberals on the year adkins I mean talk radio is 95% conservative well as because it works.
All right so what you -- right but you're right does work what liberals have to do well make it or I think it well number one.
But to me.
A lot of liberals.
And I talk about the Randi Rhodes of the world and some of these people.
I think they're coming out of the show that they were angry angry angry during the bush years they hated it -- get and -- Tuesday and they are well aware that once the word -- it was it was an incredible amount of hate and nobody wanted to listen you don't hear you don't hear Obama to arrangements and you know you don't hear the hate toward Obama that conservatives of putting forth right now I -- I I do but there's an audience for.
Affairs -- fair fair fair answer because it's all about getting an audience a let me answer this why is -- an audience.
Four they hate Obama but not an audience for hate bush.
Figures are probably more people right now don't feel like George Bush I think because conservatives have a conservative talk radio and that's about it I really believe that and fox for instance.
And liberals have all the other media Alan you've got here angry but -- what you've got all the cable channel six at a proxy about her magazine went out and they're not for doing nothing better inundated talk show us they're not doing live they're doing on the left what Limbaugh does when Hannity does this because they don't I'll do it.
So who it.
And don't even though I'm not this is not about me but what what liberals do not under any like -- cause I definitely me and yes I think that at Thom Hartmann is is very strong right now and I think he's a very reasoned and and I'd like he's not Portland Oregon right I think that.
Stephanie Miller is coming on to a degree.
And I would usually very funny generator and absolutely crucial in the shelters and Ed Schultz I think is is I think is strong very straw.
So there's there's there's the requirement any of those people pop through the number -- and number -- has it has a hundred stations you know I've understood you know and so what's wrong with that nothing because you have Uniroyal 400.
The market will determine Kennedy's got life almost 500.
Limbaugh's got 600 right right into the war many types of banana -- why is it that liberals okay if -- under stages a little that's great.
But it's nowhere near -- the top conservatives.
No it's not because I think that conservative came out of the shoot when the Fairness Doctrine was lifted it just happened to be conservative hosts who were there isn't years ago that was a number of years ago but it's still true we don't panic on -- music station you know play three or four different kinds of music.
