A Defense of Conservative Talk Radio

Congrats to fellow MBAer Mark Newgent (The Main Adversary) for his op-ed in today’s Baltimore Sun: Bad rap

…in which Mark takes on the all-too-numerous and predictable critics of conservative talk radio. My favorite example:

Baltimore Examiner columnist Michael Olesker described Mr. Steiner's show as a format where "smart, informed people shared the news and the cultural trends of the day. ... It wasn't a chorus line of ditto-heads echoing each other's cheap shots; it was a true marketplace exchange of ideas."

That would be the same Michael Olesker who was fired by the Baltimore Sun a few years ago for echoing - without attribution - someone else’s cheap shots. Media Circus: Sincere Flattery?
