And oh hell, EVERYONE attacks liberals. It makes great talk radio for the unemployed and the shutins. Need a bogeyman? It couldn't be the government in charge, blame it on the liberals!

There are more reactionary pundits out there than you and I have fingers and toes. The Limbaughs, OReilley, Hannity, etc, etc, etc. Loud talk and forceful bluster is much more entertaining than reasonable discussion and satisfactory solutions.

I agree that Michael Moore, etc. skew the truth to some extent in order to sell their films and books. Everyone with a need to market themselves do that. However, to say Ann Coulter and MM are two different sides of the same coin is a stretch to me. MM has been caught in lies and deception, Ann just gives her opinion based on the facts presented from a story.

Maybe where you live there are more conservative radio talk shows but I currently live in the Bay area (blue state land). For the most part, newstalk radio and the cable news networks are skewed to the left. Yet, FoxNews gets criticized for its rightward leanings, how is this fair? Because they decide to not be another lemming and jump on with liberals? Fox embraces its conservative leanings, the other outlets get offended if you call them liberal. Why is Air America bankrupt? They spew hate and that doesnt sell well with the average American.

And I'm not sure its the unemployed who are tuning into conservative talk radio. I think they are most likely left leaning people listening to liberal shows who bash Bush and the Republicans.
