Broadcast media, especially radio,
are full of demagogues waging "culture wars."
At the same time, they don't have to lay out their ideas in an organized fashion ON PAPER
to be read at leisure, and they don't provide
transcripts to the general public of their past
shows. Instead, they lace their shallow ideas
with invasive techniques gleaned from psychological research, accessing our citizenry's brains with the sounds of friendliness but the agenda of revenge and avarice. That is certainly true to some degree, and I think you would be alarmed if you knew how much some broadcast companies are into this.
