Talk radio counteroffensive
March 1, 2010 Leave a comment
Organizing for America is trying to expand the number liberal voices on talk radio — a traditionally conservative medium where hosts like Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck have led the charge against Democratic administrations.
The group’s new website, radio.barackobama.com, lets the president’s supporters stream talk radio programs from across the country. It also encourages them to call into the shows, offering phone numbers, tips and talking points like “This plan will give millions of Americans new choices in health insurance by making coverage more affordable, ending the denial of coverage for pre-existing conditions, putting power in the hands of consumers instead of insurance companies and providing one of the largest tax cuts in history while also reducing our national deficit.”
