Just like almost all of Hollywood and 99.8% of the music industry, it seems the radio DJs that spin the records (pardon the ancient vernacular) are also majority liberal. I’m sure it’s an industry thing.
I will occasionally listen to broadcast music radio in the morning on my way to the office. Most music radio morning drive programs have their local morning show crew, that between songs, discuss trivial current events like the Kardashian’s, or now Bruce Jenner. Nothing of substance – just junk catering to the pop culture, low information crowd.
Yesterday, the morning personalities on a Boston rock station were discussing the black family members who were arrested for cheering on their graduating children in Mississippi. Evidently the school rule was to hold all applause until the end of the ceremony. I get that – many schools have this rule.
I assume it’s to keep the ceremony moving along, but it also has a “feel-good” liberal element to it. You see, we wouldn’t want to upset the little children who have no one to cheer for them.
Anyway, charges were filed against the families by the superintendent of public schools. Well, the local radio personalities were beside themselves over this incident. Although, surprisingly no racial component was brought up at the time, the radio folks thought this was positively Hitlerian, to arrest someone over that.
