So You Wanna Be a Wingnut Radio Star

September 3, 2008

From the New York Radio Message Board comes this 18-point rundown of skills you must master in order to become a conservative talk-radio host. Ignore the nonsense about how the list also applies to Air America and concentrate on the rest, which is very amusing and, to my eye, pretty well comprehensive.  And bear in mind the final point whenever you hear a wingnut proclaiming that the workings of the intellectual marketplace are the reason we have so many conservative hacks clogging our airwaves. Radio programmers go panning for wingnut gold because the audience for anti-liberal rants remains steady through good times and bad. (Bird-dogged by Chucky.)
