Clear Channel exposed

Here in the fair Twin Cities of Minnesota, Clear Channel Communications owns seven of the stations on the AM and FM dials. The City Pages ran an excellent account of their shady practices and business happenings that brought them to the pinnacle of media control.

Read the story and then think twice about when you listen to your local radio station or attend a concert. Listen closely to determine if that voice coming through your stereo's speakers is from just across town or from across the country. I listen, albeit briefly, to a couple of Clear Channel stations but only with knowing that the voices are local and live.

I would write more but am too flustered to continue.
