For what it's worth, Talkers Magazine has released their "Heavy Hundred 2008", a list of the talk jocks ranked by ratings and/or influence and/or something or other. The highest ranked Air America Radio "personality" on the list is someone that 99.9% of the country has never heard of: Thom Hartmann. The highest ranked libtalker is "Big Dumb Possibly Drunken" Ed Schultz at #8. He was at #5 last year.
Moving on down the list, Stephanie Miller is at 28, Lionel is at 31, and Randi Rhodes is at 40, a severe drop from her position last year at 13. But, at least she beat out dozens of people who even more people have never heard of.
