I enjoyed your conversation about Murdoch and the odious things Fox does. They use media tactics comparable to those used by the Nazi propaganda minister, so I coined a term to describe their output: Goebbels-de-gook. The definition would be 'disinformation designed to enrage and inflame, in order to achieve right-wing political ends.'

I listen to KLRE and KUAR.
