Conservatives Don't Want To Hear It

Zogby/Lear Center Poll: Extensive National Survey on Politics and Entertainment

UTICA, New York – Rush Limbaugh touts himself – mostly in jest – as having “talent on loan from God” and credits that talent for his huge listenership and dominant perch atop the world of talk radio in America, but an extensive five–month polling and research project by ZogbyInternational and the Norman Lear Center at the University of SouthernCalifornia’s Annenberg School shows his popularity may have more to do withpre–set beliefs in the minds of his listeners than with his presentation skills.

Actually, Limbaugh was ahead of the curve in recognizing the source of his ratings success. He often says it is because he is merely confirming what listeners already believed, not because of his powers of persuasion. ...

... They don’t like a lot of things on TV, but their two favorite channels are Fox and Fox News. ...

Well Gee... Conservatives are narrow minded and don't/won't listen to people that disagree with them... what a surprise.
