Standing Up in Wisconsin and Beyond for Our Rights in Radio!

May 19, 2012
Any time progressives try to get their views out over the radio, Conservative Talkers squawk that they are jeopardizing their rights of Free Speech.  I agree radio talkers have their rights.  But so do We the People, and it is time we stand up for them.  Right now.  Especially in the middle of an election like the Walker recall, where the law says BOTH major politcal party supporters are entitled to comparable airtime.

Most people don't know that we have special rights when it comes to local radio and TV, but we do.  Despite what Big corporate media tells us again and again, Broadcasting operates under unique rules designed to protect the public interest.  Let me explain why Broadcasting enjoys special treatment in the name of the public.

4 Days After Scathing Report, Clear Channel GM is Fired

May 4, 2012

The Sacramento Bee today confirmed that Jeff Holden, fourteen year General Manager of Clear Channel Sacramento, is summarily being replaced by radio veteran Dave Milner. 

The article gave no real reasons for the dismissal.  It is interesting to note, however, that it came just four days after the Media Action Center published a detailed report on its meeting with Sacramento Media Group, Occupy Sacramento, and Clear Channel execs Holden and Alan Eisenson.
