Salem Radio

Tom Tradup, vice president for news and talk at Salem Radio Network, which serves more than 2,000 mostly Christian stations, questioned the direction of Glenn Beck's 28 April "Restoring Honor" rally. "Politically, everyone is with it, but theologically, when he says the country should turn back to God, the question is: Which God? How much of this is turning to God? How much is religious revival and how much is a snake oil medicine show?" [2]
