Wanted, a liberal with ideas

Thomas Sowell in the Washington Times explains why the liberal custom of throwing money at problems is unlikely to work when it comes to generating a liberal talk show host with the popularity and influence of a Rush Limbaugh, Hugh Hewitt, or Sean Hannity. As Sowell puts it, “While fomenting fear and envy may gain votes, it isn’t enough for talk radio, which is ultimately about ideas. Liberal talk show hosts don’t have any goodies to hand out, the way liberal politicians do.”
