Kurtz Asks Libtalker 'Won't People Like You and Ed Schultz Be Drowned Out' By Conservatives This Election?
CNN's Howard Kurtz on Sunday asked liberal talk radio host Stephanie Miller a question that most right-thinking Americans pray the answer is "Yes."
"You are a liberal in a conservative media...dominated by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham," said the Reliable Sources host. "Won't people like you and Ed Schultz and some of the few liberal national voices on talk radio be drowned out in this election?" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
HOWARD KURTZ, CNN: You are not a boring white gal, but you are a liberal in a conservative media, on talk radio. I mean, in other words, it is dominated by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham. Won't people like you and Ed Schultz and some of the few liberal national voices on talk radio be drowned out in this election?
STEPHANIE MILLER, CURRENT TV: I don't think so, because you look at all the polling, Howie, and the American public is largely with us. They do not think it is a good idea to give further tax cuts to the rich. If his choices were Bush's budget director or doubling down - this is Bush's plan even worse.
KURTZ: You are saying you won't be drowned out because you are right.
MILLER: Well, I mean, the vast majority of the American people don't want tax cuts for the rich and gutting Medicare.
KURTZ: But conservatives have a much louder megaphone on talk radio.
MILLER: Just because you are loud, doesn't mean you are right.
Maybe not, but you can rest assured millions of Americans across the fruited plain hope the fallacious propaganda being spread by the likes of Miller and Schultz will indeed be drowned out.
I'm not sure based on the question that would make Kurtz happy, but count me amongst them.
How about you?
