Because they usually come across as stupid as this claim that Bernie Ward's trial for child pornography would be bigger news if he were a Republican. Of course, if Ward were a Republican he wouldn't be a local talk host but a national host on thousands of stations. The reason why Rush Limbaugh's illegal pill popping was such news is that he's on the airwaves everywhere. Until very very recently liberal radio hosts were blocked from even the potential of such access.
It's stupid proclamations like this why Glenn Reynolds mostly foists on us the opinions of others and is too much of a coward to say what he believes.
