The right wing has had a radio apparatus for years and years,
so they've had minor leagues - they've had local rightwing
guys who've become national rightwing guys,

We haven't had that.
It isn't like we have a farm team.
- Al Franken

- Al Franken

To make the argument that the media has a left-

or a liberal or a conservative bias,
is like asking if the problem with Al-Qaeda is do they
use too much oil in their hummus.
- Al Franken

And there just hadn't been any radio that did that.
And so they weren't trained - they had developed all
these bad habits of being objective and balanced and stuff like that.

It's just wrong.

I also focus on Bush and his administration -
who do a lot of lying -
and how a right-wing media has allowed them to get
away with a lot of stuff that,
in a different media environment, they probably wouldn't
be able to get away with.
- Al Franken

The Eye-of-the-Storm.
Surrounded by the winds and the rain,

a time for repose and contemplation.

It's YOUR time - it's YOUR life -

of how you should live your life.
What about YOUR vision for your life?
What do YOU want?
YES, it matters what you want.
YES you can have what you want.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

and the minority is always stronger than the majority,
because the minority is generally formed by those
who really have an opinion,
while the strength of a majority is illusory,
formed by the gangs who have no opinion -
and who, therefore, in the next instant
(when it is evident that the minority is the stronger)
assume its opinion... while truth again reverts to a new minority.
- Soren Kierkegaard
