    In some instances, selling things means not turning off your audience.

    Would Rush Limbaugh ever irritate his following by citing the good works of Bill Clinton when president?

    Would one expect Fox News to ever be "balanced, fair"? The same rationale..the viewers are looking for gossip, blood, and conspiracy "facts".
