Why don't the Right-wing media (Hannity, Limbaugh, O'Really...etc) report on McCains mob funded election to Congress?

Deep Thought: Married to the Mob.

frankly I don't really care about their congressional elections. I think both candidates have gone onto better things. Obama wasn't pristine on his congressional run either.

Because so much of their support comes from crooked dealings, either corporations who own this nation, or from other crooks.
Because they do not believe in American ideals, only lip service to them.
Because they are supported by their advertisers and he who pays the fiddler calls the tune.

They would not stay in their jobs for long if they spoke the truth. Their only purpose of being is to spin for corporatism and its most favorite party, the Republicans.

I always wonder about this too. When you think of all the silly things about which they report, their silence on this matter always amazes me. Of course, since Cindy's dad's mob bunch blew up a young man, Don Bolles, that was once a very familiar figure in my hometown of Beloit, Wisconsin, I may care about it more than the media. Sad, really sad.

read my replies and you will wonder no longer. those radio talk show hosts aren't reporting news, they are doing a political talk show.
