Not much of a surprise, but this AM an article about how George met with the vanguards of the RW airwaves to make sure they are all on the same page with three weeks left. I believe in free enterprise and all that stuff, but there sometimes seems something wrong with using the airwaves for his political message.. there is a need for balance, but what difference does that make even if there was a law it would be ignored anyways. Today on Rush's site there are indicators he had an interview with Cheney and there are indications that O'Reilly had an interview with GWB. These are very powerful forces at play in this election, however just once I would like to see an equally powerful person from the other side debate O'Reilly, Limbaugh or Hannity... without being cut off. All I ever hear is bubba bum f..ck from Texarkana who is generalized as the atypical democratic voter. http://www.nytimes.com/2006/10/17/u...ashington&oref=slogin&oref=slogin&oref=slogin WASHINGTON, Oct. 16 Ă˘â‚¬â€ť On an overcast Friday morning last month, White House aides ushered an influential group of conservative radio hosts into the Oval Office for a private audience with the president.

The meeting, which was not announced on the presidentĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s public schedule, was part of an intensive Republican Party campaign to reclaim and re-energize a crucial army of supporters that is not as likely to walk in lockstep with the White House as it has in the past. Conservative radio hosts are breaking with the Republican leadership in ways not seen in at least a decade, and certainly not since Rush LimbaughĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s forceful advocacy of the party in 1994 spawned a new generation of stars, said Michael Harrison, publisher of the industryĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s lead trade publication, Talkers.
