Salon observes that the Right sells garbage to its audience, calling the movement "an elaborate moneymaking venture by which the wealth of the rabid and gullible conservative rank and file is redistributed to already rich celebrities:"

It must also be said that this is not relegated strictly to conservatives -- talk radio breeds hucksterism. But conservatives, in addition to dominating talk radio, are left with a movement of dwindling size and increasing paranoia and disposable income. [...] At some point, maybe they [the right-wing stars] gave up a bit on advancing conservatism to focus instead on advancing themselves as they saw the writing on the wall of a movement circumscribed by demographic and societal change.
