The Richard Bastion Show
The Richard Bastion Show is a right-wing news radio program, which can be heard on WKTT Radio in Grand Theft Auto IV. It is a spoof of the conservative talk-radio shows such as Rush Limbaugh's or Michael Savage's , mainly because of the sarcastic remarks, and the hatred towards the "liberal" media. Occasionally, listeners will call in and rant about various things, such as music and the government, these are real people whom Rockstar asked during production of the game to call into a phone number with what they thought was wrong with America.
- Fans of the show are referred to as Bastion's Buddies.
- The name "Bastion" likely refers to the tendency of the conservative political movement to consider itself a "bastion" of common sense or rationality.
