FCC Reviewing Arbitron's Counting of Minorities


www.washingtonpost.com

In a notice of inquiry, the FCC said broadcasters and media organizations have raised concerns that Arbitron does not include enough minorities in its sample groups, which are used to determine radio audience ratings. The FCC said it is also looking into complaints that Arbitron does not distribute enough of its measuring devices in African American and Hispanic communities. As a result, critics say, minority audiences are undercounted and the stations they listen to most frequently have a harder time competing for advertisers.

Really?

Are we seriously paying the FCC to make sure that enough "minorities" get counted in sample groups of radio audiences? Why is this even an issue? Aren't we all supposed to be equal now? This is a blatant waste of tax money and why it is allowed to continue is beyond me. When is the government finally going to start treating us all the same? That's what the Civil Rights movement was all about, not crap like this. This only serves to divide us further.
