USA: Talk Radio Nation

Channel 4

Unreported World

Go to About Section

With decision time just days away in the US Election, reporter Krishnan Guru-Murthy and director Sue-May Oram meet the talk-radio hosts broadcasting to a country more polarised than ever before.

A news anchor steeped in the ethics of impartial reporting, and a former talk-radio show host himself, Krishnan finds his own values openly challenged and dismissed by these radio hosts, who say his neutrality is a form of bias and censorship.

It’s a world where – almost – anything goes; broadcasters are free to say ‘all Muslims should be bombed’ on the air, though swearing isn’t allowed. Some radio hosts don’t care who they offend, and they cheerfully admit to political bias – they see it as their job to get Obama voted out.
