"Secrets of Talk Radio"

You might be tempted to file this one under "only confirms what I've suspected for years," but it's worth reading anyway. It's an article by a guy who was program manager for ten years at a radio station that featured rightwing ranters, who for a long time was happy in his work, until the penny dropped during a crisis moment three years ago.

And yeah, they really do get their talking points emailed to them every day, "from the Bush White House, the Republican National Committee and, during election years, GOP campaign operations."

[Added] Steve got this from digby, who's got some interesting commentary on it.
