A myth invented in conservative think-tanks as part of an all-encompassing effort to co-opt and/or corrupt all of the best ideas of a socially responsible, free country: In this case specifically, the existence of a free and curious media that functions independently from the government (but see also: affirmative action, feminism, social security, constitutional protection, judicial restraint, environmentalism, and social liberalism in general).
"Thank God we have Bill O'Reilly and Fox News to tell us the news as President Bush would have us know it -- before it gets filtered through the liberal bias for that pesky 'truth' the mainstream media is always harping on.
|National Peoplesrepublic Radio|
The primary radio source of liberal propaganda in the United States.
Unlike its commercial imitator, Air America, National Peoplesrepublic Radio (NPR, alias "National Public Radio") knows there isn't enough demand for its services to make it commerically viable (the extreme left being a tiny minority in the United States). Therefore, it will continue to function on donations, government subsidies, and grants from large corporations. Many of these corporations are involved in industries which the audience detests, proving Lenin's point about capitalists selling the ropes which will be used in their hangings.
At least National Peoplesrepublic Radio has decent music programming, which is more than I can say for Air America. You also can bet on being within range of a National Peoplesrepublic Radio station, too.

|This American Life|
A radio program played every weekend. Hosted by Ira Glass, this program looks at the amazing life of ordinary people.
"This American Life? Isn't that the show by those hipster know-it-alls who talk about how fascinating ordinary people are?"
Talk radio network and syndicator appealing to "progressives"
aka liberals. When founded in 2004, it was said it would
spread to about 600 radio stations (like Rush Limbaugh) but for the most part it has failed. Reasons include weak signals,
the inability to feature local hosts, strident hosts who
favor a political agenda over entertaining talk, and an anti- big business attitude that drives away advertisers. Some feel it shoots for the far left and drives away moderates or conservatives.
Many Air America stations have changed to more profitable
formats such as sports. Several petition drives have
attempted to resurrect the format in cities such as Boston,
Akron, New Haven, Dallas, and Sacramento. The only successful effort so far was a Madison station that
decided against switching to sports.
Some feel the Fairness Doctrine should be brought back
to help liberal talk radio, but this is basically a gutting of freedom of the press. Conservatives feel talk radio
should succeed on demand, talent, and the free market
rather than through government force.
Boston lost its two Air America stations due to low ratings
and low ad billing, which is shocking given the predominance
of liberals and Democrats in the area.
