Hate Radio

I know limbo isn’t the only practitoner of “Hate Radio”, and that it isn’t anything really new. There were “broadcasters” in the U.S. during the buildup to the Second World War who were nazi supporters and possibly as obnoxious. (Those were the days that the very idea of radio “news” was new- Edward R. Murrow had to convince the people at CBS that broadcasting a regular news report was a good idea.) Those early hatemongers were eventually thrown off the air. Can’t we flush Rush and move on?

What is the cost when free speech becomes hate speech?
