Air America Radio loses Memphis WSMB 680 AM, to be replaced with sports talk.Â I’m still waiting for that swell of demand for the ‘progressive’ message. WSMB is going from this to this. That should tell them something.
Frustrated by the fact that they can’t get any traction with their brand of rabid radio, they don’t see it as a loss, but rather as justification to whine for the Fairness Doctrine.
To liberals, free markets are fine as long as they are not on the losing side. Imagine for a moment that the popularity of talk radio is overwhelmingly liberal, and conservative talkers just couldn’t cut the mustard. Do you see the liberals calling for the Fairness Doctrine then?
