Like a broken record, I have told many of my wealthy progressive and independent thinking friends that print media and television are forever lost to us as an independent source of information. Major corporations in what is now quasi-fascist America control all these media outlets.

Now that corporations can own an unlimited amount of radio stations nationwide, Clear Channel and the other major media companies own most of the quality radio signals.
