Talk Radio Killing Conservates?

I found this article very interesting, when you look at the way that many of the leading Republicans act.  I see them in a whole new light and can see the prisim of "Talk Radio" that they have used from the last decade and a half.
FiveThirtyEight.com: Politics Done Right: Did Talk Radio Kill Conservatism?
Conservatives listen to significantly more talk radio than other market segments; 28 percent of conservative Republicans listen to talk radio regularly, as opposed to 17 percent of the public as a whole. (Unsurprisingly, conservative hosts also dominate the the Arbitron ratings).

I have to say that the fact that the Fed is not letting anyone know who they have given, an estimated 2 trillion in bailout money, really worries me.  I do not trust this current administration, at just about, every turn they have messed up things.  Their arrogance has led them wrong constantly over the last 8 years.  Thank god that the election went the way it did.

But it will be painful, before it gets better.
