In Soviet Russia we have two TV channels, the first one is Soviet propaganda, the second one is KGB officer telling you to turn back to channel 1

You know conservatives do the same thing, right? I listen to a lot of conservative Christian radio like American Family Radio, and I couldn't begin to count the number of people who call in to say that that's their only source of news and information. It's sad, really. I listen to opposing viewpoints all the time. They don't.

IF THE AIRWAVES WEREN'T SATURATED WITH LEFT WING VEIWPOINTS THE RIGHT WOULD HAVE MORE THAN A COUPLE OF SOURCES OF VALIDATION | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Left: About 9/10ths of all news media, the "public" education curriculum, virtually the entire entertainment industry (movies, television, music, comedy, etc.).

Right: AM Radio, Fox News.

Believe me, we get the left's opinion on things whether we want to hear it or not. We don't need to seek after it.

1. American Family Radio (and other Christian stations like Bott Radio, K-WAVE, etc) are on FM, not AM

2. People on the left also get saturated with messages from the right. I see conservative Christian billboards and signs everywhere I go. And I mean literally everywhere. Every state, every part of the country.

Some talk radio stations in some markets have an FM transmitter instead of AM. Music stations almost always broadcast on FM, including the small percentage of Christian or inspirational format ones. Not sure what your point is. Radio is radio. Talk radio is 90% AM, music radio is 95% FM. My point remains the same, yours is lost on me.

Billboards? Basically huge bumper stickers on the side of the road. Are you being serious right now?

Billboards are media. You don't get to just ignore billboards as being part of media because they aren't TV or radio.

It's not a question of ignoring them. But they hardly compare to the constant barrage of liberal thought coming from the entertainment industry, the bulk of the news media, and virtually every publicly funded source of information.

Your original point was that some right-wingers get their news solely from right-wing sources, and even say so themselves. But what they're not saying (and I *am* saying) is that they get plenty of left-wing opinions, they just need to tune in pretty much any TV show, watch a Hollywood movie, listen to popular music (maybe except C&W, but who can stand that?), read a newspaper or magazine, or participate in public education. That they choose to spend the rest of their time listening to AFR, Salem Radio, or Fox News, is how they get closer to a balance.

The people to whom I'm referring don't watch TV, don't go out to movies, and don't listen to popular music. Some of these people *quite literally* have conservative Christian radio playing in their home every waking moment.

While I'm sure that such people as you describe, those who have voluntarily cut themselves off from everything they describe as "in the world", do actually exist (I know a couple of them, actually), they hardly comprise the bulk of the conservative right, or even the majority of AFR's audience.

To paraphrase a point you made on another topic; You can't take one anecdotal incident and use it to make a defining judgement on the rest of the world.

I listen to talk radio when I'm driving. Limbaugh, Hewitt, Medved, or even Hannity and Gallagher when they're not sounding like a broken record (that's repeating the same thing ad nauseum, for you millennials who don't get the reference). I watch Tucker Carlson or Laura Ingraham when there's nothing good on TV (and nothing good on DVR).

But I don't need to listen to CNN, MSNBC, or NPR to get the leftist take on current events because frankly, it don't need to. Leftism is like Visa. It's everywhere you want to be. There's no escaping from it. That is, unless you want to be an information shut-in like the tiny number of people to whom you're referring.

I agree that those people don't represent the bulk of conservatives, and I also agree that one small sample size doesn't accurately represent a large group.

It does sound like you listen primarily (or possibly even exclusively) to conservative pundits. Isn't that similar behavior to the people I previously described? To completely, totally, 100% shut yourself off from ANY liberal media may or may not be easy, depending on how much media you (or anyone else) take in and through which sources, it's probably not as difficult as you may think. In other words, it is possible to go through your daily life without being constantly bombarded with liberal messages.

I tried listening to NPR once, the whole time I'm talking back to the radio going; "That's a lie. Lie. Not true. Based false assumptions. Lie again. Misinterpreted. Lie. Lie. Taken out of context. Your opinion presented as fact. Again, not true. Not Proven. Assumption. Assumption. Feelings. Belief not fact. Lie. Wrong. Half-truth, misrepresented." You get the idea. I finally had to turn the guy off because he was so completely full of crap and his "guest" was even worse. It was a bit like listening to George Noory doing a show on cryptids from outer space.

I'm getting Hollywood's leftist messages from almost every TV series on the air (they cancelled Tim Allen's series, and I never cared much for Roseanne Barr), and don't even get me started on the comedy or variety shows. Almost every form of media comes included with leftist ideology, just some are less subtle than others. To wit;

Apparently every third human being is either gay or at least bi-curious. Every white guy is racist, if not overtly, then down deep in his subconscious. Military men are all psychotic warmongers who take great pleasure in killing, the more innocent the victim, the better they like it. Men think women are at best, pets and at worst, furniture. Corporations are all heartless and evil, and love profit so much that they'll take a dump in their own food if they can make an extra buck. Capitalism and free markets are a vast conspiracy perpetrated by rich white people to get even richer and whiter. The earth is a big fragile eggshell and if we step on it too hard it will crack and we will all fall into the yolk and drown. Don't even get me started on how Christians and Jews are typically portrayed, although ironically Muslims are all poor innocent victims of Western aggression. And I can't make out if Donald Trump is a villainous mastermind of heinous evil and corruption, or if he's a learning-disabled simpleton without the intellectual capacity God provided to the common rock. I guess it depends on which leftist nutball has his mouth open and on what day.

It's not like I listen to talk radio morning, noon, and night anyway. I listen in the car. It takes me 20 minutes to get to work, and about a half hour to get home. It's a nice little respite to listen know I'm not the only person who thinks the prior paragraph is a giant truckload of horse dung.

It's funny that in the first paragraph you described the things you wanted to say/yell at the guy on NPR, because that's exactly my response when I listen to AFR :) totally identical

I will admit that popular TV shows do often have a liberal bias, sometimes a pretty overt one. I can understand that that would get pretty annoying pretty fast for someone who holds to different values.

The line about falling into the yolk and drowning was funny, as was the part about getting "richer and whiter".

I would disagree about how Christians, Jews and Muslims are portrayed. There are a number of TV shows and movies where Muslims (specifically Muslim terrorists) are the bad guys. And other TV shows have main characters who are Christians who aren't portrayed negatively. They may not actively talk about their beliefs, but the character is shown to be a Christian. One example that comes to mind is Law & Order SVU.
