Politicizing the Weather

Have you ever - EVER - seen such small-mindedness?
Radio station WIOD, AM 610, has been the official channel for emergency information from Broward (Florida) County government for the past year. The County Commission, all Democrats, balked at renewing the deal Tuesday, unable to stomach the station also being home to (Rush) Limbaugh's talk show.

Ken Charles, WIOD's director of AM programming, said Tuesday the station's talk show lineup has no relationship with its news coverage and that the county should focus on the benefits of teaming with the station."It's a shame that people would let politics get in the way of saving lives in a hurricane," Charles said.
The worst part is these idiots think they're serving the community by pitching their childish, partisan fit.
