NPR reports the news. It doesn't do opinion, except for certain guests and it's very topical.


Right. Clear Chanel was pulling air rights licenses where "topical" individual programs about sex, birth control, LGBT, abortion, etc were being shown on NPR channels. This was not in major market areas, as I remember.

It was a long time ago.

I think you said leftist here.

And NPR is left leaning, if you have ever listened to it you would know.

Also, not just my opinion.

Conservative political commentators are not just the majority on talk radio--they monopolize it. .....

But, if they own that channel, are you going to try and dictate to them
what they can and cant broadcast?

Listen to Howard Stern then....its a free radio wave.

Fair enough. Let's look at a time much more recent. The source will send you into a a "safe-space"-needing frenzy, but I ask you refute the claims, not the source.


Premiere Radio Networks, which syndicates righties Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, and Dr. Laura, among others, is owned by the nation’s largest radio-station conglomerate, Clear Channel. Clear Channel, thanks to FCC deregulation, was allowed to gobble up over 1000 radio stations — including 16 of the most powerful, (lower-case) clear-channel AM stations in major markets. Today, Clear Channel either owns or programs most of the nation’s 58 strongest, 50,000-watt AM radio stations, liberally stocking them with right-wing talk shows. Among them: Los Angeles’ KFI, New York’s WABC, Detroit’s WJR, Denver’s KOA, Portland’s KEX, and Chicago’s WLS. Yes, Clear Channel does own liberal Air America stations. But none of them is a 50,000-watt “blowtorch.” Instead, Clear Channel puts shows like Thom Hartmann’s on its smaller, 5,000-and 10,000-watt “sticks” (antennas).



Clear Channel is more than a corporate name. It’s also a radio descriptor: A clear-channel radio station is a powerful, 50,000-watt signal with interference-free nightly coverage 750 miles from its city. Clear Channel owns 17 of those coveted licenses, and its Premiere supplies much of the programming to many of the rest. There are only one or two 50,000-watt stations carrying Air America’s — or any — liberal shows. Wherever Clear Channel owns a big AM radio station and other smaller ones, it always puts Premiere’s Hannity, Rush, et al on its biggest signal. This puts liberal stations at a big disadvantage in virtually all large markets — where the real radio money is.

Read the entire piece and refute what you can. I'd be glad to converse on the issue.

Because that's when it all began.

The Telecommunications Reform Act, amended the Communications Act of 1934.

Thank you Michael Powell and Clear Channel.




In 1996, Congress passed the Telecommunications Reform Act, which amended the Communications Act of 1934. The 1996 Telecom Act was a corrupt piece of work, being the product of the largest corporate lobbies all salivating at the prospect of rewriting the law to provide them a larger slice of the action. www.counterpunch.org...

I can only speak for myself, but I don't think anyone is going to say we should dictate what people should broadcast, but we should not deny the fact that while many people complain about a Left-Wing media bias, the biggest cable TV news channel is Right-Wing and the Right-Wing dominates talk radio.

The Right-Wing is way ahead of the game in those areas.

I'm looking at it, Huff Po. I read everything.
Dear Lord, is everyone that delicate?

Read and listen to what you want, make up your own
mind. And for heavens sake, these stations are not
full of mind control. If people cant listen to a
broadcast, or watch T.V without making up
their own mind, you cant blame that on the broadcasts.

Blame the mindless people.

So then you would agree that a Liberal bias in the media is absolutely false, and that we just need to change the station if we don't like it?

Also, considering the popularity of Right-Wing media, can we assume that Right-Wingers get their information from very biased and sterilized sources that do not offer the balanced perspective they claim?

If they did...they would be like NPR.

As always, I just advocate reading absolutely everything - even the things with slants you disagree with with - soak it all up. Be a sponge. Be meticulous. Then cross reference, fact check, and come to your own conclusions. Or, in cases where rigorous conclusions cannot be reached, suspend judgment.

Caveat: no one is free of bias, myself included.

Peace.

I think people have full control to change the channel.
Liberal bias in the media is strong, every medium.

TV, Internet, and Radio. Even music channels have left leaning
commentary. What is with the radio obsession?

Thats just your opinion.
If radio hosts are popular, that just equates to folks liking them.

But the most popular is the Right-Wing talking heads. Apparently the Right can't seem to change the channel to get a proper, more informed mix.

But it's not popular. It appears it is not as strong as you claim.

That's completely false. I've provided link that show the opposite.

Confirmation bias is always popular. Why is Right-Wing radio and TV the industry leaders?

Juan Williams was let-go from NPR after he made some stupid comments about Muslims.

So he went to Fox.

Try again?

Insanity, pure insanity. The media and all of it's forms are so massively far leftist that it has accomplished getting people to support Hillary Clinton. Think about it. Her husband was almost impeached for being a psycho rapist womanizer, and we actually see women and people from the LGBT community supporting her wholeheartedly. This is pure insanity. It's like the reign of the Clinton's has been totally forgotten.

Yes, we need everything to be leftist propaganda. It is making this world such a wonderful place to live in.

Yeah . That was NPR's excuse. They had been after him for some time. Please read something other than NPR's own site .

Now with that said.....Awe I am not gonna finish it off just yet.

You guys do know that radio is considered by most as a fossil form of media ... right? And that music stations far outnumber talk? Most people consider talk to be not cool ... right?

But please ... keep whining about radio as if it is some kind of huge and hugely influential monolith over popular culture and perception.

Democrats already control about 95% of the media, so why not 100%?
