Detail For Show: Liberty or Lies - Conservative Talk Radio in Milwaukee Wisconsin


Show Description:

"Liberty or Lies? Conservative Talk Radio in Milwaukee Wisconsin" is an analysis of Milwaukee Conservative talk radio as a microcosm of the genre’s impact on American politics, media and culture.

Through interviews with Milwaukee Conservative talk radio hosts Charlie Sykes, Jay Weber, Vicki McKenna, Jeff Wagner and James T. Harris; and prominent local critics Eugene Kane, Joel McNally, Bruce Murphy, the late Tim Cuprisin and others, I attempt to address the primary complaints about Conservative talk radio and allow both sides to make their best case. The documentary discusses how Milwaukee Conservative talk radio has impacted Wisconsin politics over the years and is thus a key catalyst in the current Wisconsin Conservative revolution which is having an impact on politics nationally. It then delves into controversial areas about which the larger debate over Conservative talk radio typically occurs: Conservative talk radio is one-sided and unfair, it misinforms listeners, it is a platform for hate speech, it should be regulated, it negatively influences people’s perceptions of the news media, it attracts and inspires a dangerous demographic.

Notes to Stations About This Show:

(The two-hour special condenses all of this into a single program. The six-part series provides roughly one-hour to each area.) Though ultimately a pro-Conservative talk radio presentation, Liberty or Lies? gives considerable time and consideration to these complaints and allows the critics to make their best case in their own words – a unique balance which viewers seem very much to appreciate and enjoy.
