For example, how often do you watch Keith Olbermann and MSNBC?

How often do you listen to Liberal talk radio? How often do you read books by leading liberal thinkers?

How often do you read Liberal websites or post at liberal forums?




ALso for Liberals:

How often do you watch Fox News? How regularly do you listen to Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, and the big man himself Mr. Limbaugh? Do you own anything written by Ann Coulter or Glenn Beck?

I suppose you get 1 point if you're reading this at all, since you obviously read COnservative Underground.

Never.. Not even Liberals consume Liberal bullshit, hence Air America going bankrupt several times and the fact that Liberal programming cannot make any money on the radio. This is why Liberals want to institute the unconstitutional Fairness Doctrine, because whenever their Liberal bullshit comes on, people turn the dial, so the stations won't carry it.. This is also why the stations that carry the Liberal drivel are constantly the lowest in ratings and why the government illegally funds NPR, which could never stay in business if it were up to people listening and patronizing their advertisers..

Sometimes at night when I'm flippin' the tv around, I'll stop on MSNBC or a similar program just to see what kind of BS they are saying. About 5 minutes is all I can take.
Usually within even less than that, they say something so outrageously stupid and anit-American that I have to turn the channel and get up and take an antacid.

I've never read a book by any right wing author. I don't regularly listen to any right wing radio talk shows, although if I do happen to be driving when one is on, I'll probably tune in to see what they've got to say for the day - but that's not often. Most of the other talking heads I don't know anything at all about. Rush I know a bit about because I was listening to him 15 years ago.

And this is just one example where the democrat/liberal side makes such a huge mistake. The programs that they put out there as the "face" of their party are so outlandish that no one, including their own kind, can stand to watch.

I'm an addict bro.

I've been listening to Sean Hannity almost daily for about 5 or 6 years now, Rush Limbaugh for a few years, and Glenn Beck since he hit it big last year.

I listen in almost every day. As for television, my TV is on Fox News by default. I let the sound of political commentary fill my home as ambient noise.

I've read some books by Ann Coulter, I own Glenn Becks "Arguing with Idiots" and have skimmed through some stuff by O'Reilly.

And on the internet, well, I just can't get enough of this stuff.

You know what's awful is all of my liberal peers react in the same way I'm sure you do to MSNBC.

Haha I love to put it on Fox News and silently watch it (not laughing or criticizing it, just watching it) when I have liberal friends around.

They hate it, drives them up the walls.

That is in addition to dozens and dozens of bookmarks to liberal websites that I read on at least a weekly basis.

If you want some real liberal information, some intellectual stimulation and not the awful garbage that MSNBC spouts out, I can recommend some books.

Excellent, in that case I'd choose something a bit less intensive on strict theory and more applicable to contemporary american society

Both books are by Slovenian philosopher and cultural theorist Slavoj Zizek

Welcome to the Desert of the Real ( written shortly after 9/11, this book examines the 9/11 attacks, America's response, and the place it may take in our continuing ideology, as well as generally examining how ideology functions in society)

First as Tragedy, Then as Farce (written recently, it performs a similar examination of the recent financial crises and gives an in depth criticism of both capitalism and failed socialist utopias)

Saw him a few times...decided the man was either demented, a fool or in need to serious sedation. Or all of the previous.


How often do you listen to Liberal talk radio? How often do you read books by leading liberal thinkers?

Have downloaded Malloy and watched some of the liberal tripe. Hard not to throw up or throw something at the TV..so i dont anymore


How often do you read Liberal websites or post at liberal forums?

Kinda hard to do that when the ban hammer comes down HARD on anyone daring to argue with the hive mind. Kos,. HuffPo, DU...all ban conservatives at first glance and are relentless in ensuring their "big tent" is only for those who agree with them

DU is proof that whilst they claim they believe in freedom of speech,...they sure as hell dont practise it.

Go on...try it.

Post on DU and state you are a conservative. You'll be banned so fast you wont have time to finish post #2.

Uh huh. Then you're not a conservative, but this is something we all know here. You're spouting off about reading and listening to stuff by the big stars. You're trying to convince us that you are conservative. Nice try but you fail miserably. Try this on for size:

When I do listen to talk radio(when I'm not listening to sports talk) I listen to Mark Levin, Mike Church, or Andrew Wilkow when I had Sirius or Jim Gerhart on NJ101.5. For books, yes I've read Hannity, Coulter, and O'Reilly but the only book written by Glen Beck I've ever read was The Christmas Sweater. His political books are hard to read because he goes off on tangents. However, I've read books by Larry Elder, Tammy Bruce, Dinesh D'Souza, Harry Browne, Neal Boortz, Jon Stossel(although the latter 3 are Libertarians, as is Beck), Bernie Goldberg, Laurs Ingraham, among others. I also carry a copy of the Constitution around with me.

I don't listen to or watch the liberal pundits. Not interested. MSNBC, or more accurately, the NBC corporation, are lapdogs of the Obama Administration and Keith Olberman is the most vile thing on television. Maddow is a close 2nd. I used to watch Anderson Cooper but he seems to have fallen off the deep end.

I once had the audacity to announce I was a conservative on the DU and gave another perspective to their blathering. I was respectful and provided facts to support my arguments. To say the members there were less than cordial is an understatement. I was banned in a little over 2 hours. All for giving an opposing perspective.

I commend the few here who actually digest information from opposing viewpoints. At least you have some clue about what it is you argue against.

Those who don't, as one would expect, appear to be the most inept and ill-informed among the posters here. I find it amusing that some of them even shout it with pride, that they willingly remain ignorant of the viewpoints that they so ardently oppose.

Newsflash: If all your knowledge of liberalism comes by way of conservative talking heads, then you are completely ignorant of what liberalism, as a philosophy, actually is, period. Vice versa. All the demons you fight exist only inside your head.

Newsflash: Your attempt to convert anyone here is going to fall on deaf ears. The media (NBC, ABC & CBS) ratings along with liberal rags like LA Times, NYT ratings circulation have gone in the toilet. It's not for lack of information that they espouse; it's for a lack of misinformation and omission of the news.

You do not to have a degree from Harvard or any other Ivy League School to recognize, understand, and dissect liberalism. Liberals are for more government control and spending, higher taxes, socialized meds, and quite a few are anti-American. As a conservative, I am against every one of those items. This is not brain surgery.

The Democrats/Liberals are the ones that will be fighting the demons in their heads when they get stomped on Nov. 2. All of those closed minded intellectual liberals will be in denial. Like Obama, it must be the presentation cause it certainly is not the message. FAIL.

I listen to NPR all the time: All Things Considered mostly. I enjoy BBC News as well. I browse DU daily. I read Salon.com.

I've had dinner with J.C. Watts and Ben Stein. I've shot pool and had drinks with Ann Coulter.

I listened to Glenn Beck in 2003/2004 when he was still relatively unknown.
I own books by Coulter, Beck, Limbaugh, Boortz.

My last read was: The 5000 Year Leap... i highly suggest it.

I grew up in liberal Vermont.
I am an Engineer and an MBA.
I ended up a Conservative.

The end.
