The left side of your radio dial

Is it just me, or is Communist Radio not so Communist any more? I've noticed recently that I can occasionally listen twenty or thirty minutes at a time and not hear a single left-wing lie or distortion. I may be desensitized from living in San Francisco, but I think NPR is also changing. In the latest issue of Vanity Fair, James Wolcott laments the demise of taxpayer-funded left-wing propaganda at NPR and PBS.

In other left-wing radio news, Marc Maron said this morning on Air America's Morning Sedition radio show that the show was being cancelled. I don't know what they are going to replace it with. I do know that during the breaks, they were airing a lot of public service announcements, a sign that they aren't selling enough ads.

UPDATE: I take it back about Communist Radio not being so communist any more. They did a story about the Minuteman Project at the border, and introduced it saying, "While some people say the Minutemen are racist...." I can't recall them ever introducing true racists, promoters of racial quotas, that way: "Reverend Jackson, it's good to have you on the program, even though some people say you are a racist..."
