How To Fail Brilliantly In Conservative Talk Radio, Part 2…

The bottom line is the thing, as it is in every business. This is the reason for the Rick Sanchezes, the robot that sounds like Mike Huckabee, and Dennis Miller (even though he puts on a decent product). These guys established themselves in other industries, and somebody set a mike in front of them. I don’t know how Occupy Wall Street can make the claim that all corporations care about is profit, when there would be far more profitable options than Huckabee and Sanchez.

Don’t get me wrong, I like Mike Huckabee–I just don’t think the guy is made for radio. So for the guy trying to enter the business? Good luck. I tried trolling once (in internet parlance, picking a fight on purpose for publicity), but it’s not my style. I won’t say things that are mean or nasty for publicity, because I think I am smarter than that.

The only option is the one I use: Produce the best product I can, and try to honestly market that product.
