The Skewed Audience of Wisconsin Public Radio

Those online polls associated with this or that public affairs show are never a good indicator of public opinion, but they are a dandy survey of the opinions of the audience of any particular outlet.

Thus the Joy Cardin show on Wisconsin Public Radio did two such polls, one asking whether Governor Walker or the Senate Democrats should compromise in the current budget impasse, and another about whether the Democrats should continue to boycott the legislature.

The results are just what anybody would expect. Of course, if Fox can be the network for conservatives, why can’t NPR, its state affiliates and PBS be the voice of liberalism? No reason, except that Fox News doesn’t get taxpayer money.

Wow, never heard that before. What a thinker you are. I guess since an institution gets public money they should not be allowed to provide a forum for any views except your own. Except Marquette gets public money, and half of what you say is contradicted by the half of what you say when the other side does it.

So yawn. Get an argument from this century.

By "provide a forum" you mean provide a forum for only one side?

I don't think universities should do that either, but mostly they get away with it.
