Public radio and TV are failing for the following reasons:
* They are top heavy in management, often at inflated salaries. When it was discovered that one executive was receiving two checks, the lame defense was that the second check came from a different fund.
* Due to their executive spending, they have been forced into reruns, infomercials and continual pledge drives.
* Announcers give their names every five or 10 minutes. Constantly giving names enhances their celebrity and book sales, but is disruptive to the listener.
* As if giving Steve Insky's name every few minutes wasn't bad enough, they reviewed his book on an afternoon show, not on his overly personalized morning show. Does the term "conflict of interest" mean anything?
* Although I did not believe it when I was sending them money, I now believe public radio and TV exhibit a strong liberal bias.
