    Don't very silence someone, because you don't like what they say. When we lose freedom of speech we lose everything!

    Democrats only wish conservative talk radio would die. It won't until the dictator in the WH orders/mandates/forces them off the air. Hopefully the American citizens will not allow the Prez/dictator to do it.

    This is an old story, but as news reports show today cumulus re-upped Hannity's contract and he turned them down. Lets see if they run a correction.

    I always love Mike Medved's contributions to the program, but Mike, I disagree with you on organized boycotts of talk show advertisers. These are as much an exercise of freedom of speech as are talk hosts' urgings that listeners vote out politicians they don't agree with. If hosts can urge people to withhold support of candidates, then listeners can urge advertisers to withhold support of specific talk shows. Both are exercises of freedom of expression.

      But those boycotts are yet another demonstration freedom of speech right? I see nothing wrong with that

    Never good when the host's audio fidelity is worse than the guest's.
