Fear mongering radio

In order to try to understand other perspectives I've been forcing myself to listen to a fear mongering radio station that features a multitude of shock jocks, including the largest mouth on radio; Rush Limbaugh. One of the local radio personalities, Bob Davis, even suggested the parents of the children who were gunned down in Newtown should go to hell* (editorial comment: he was eager for company?), since they were advocating gun control.  I finally realized why I dislike this format so much. It is the antithesis of the Apostle Paul's admonition: 

"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things."
