The LA TIMES features a regular column dealing with radio, as do most major newspapers. In the January 10, 2003 edition is an article regarding the recent Gallop Poll showing 1/5 American's get their news from Talk Radio.

A lot has been said lately that there are no 'Liberal Limbaugh's' to balance the radio market. Perhaps it's because there are few Liberal listeners. Consider this excerpt fromt he article:

22% of Americans get news from talk jocks The Gallup survey also confirmed a breakdown that anyone listening to talk radio could already presume: Nearly twice as many Republicans as Democrats listed talk radio as their news source, 29% to 15%.

Simply stated, there is an obvious lack of Liberal listeners to justify a 'Liberal Limbaugh.'
