I went to sleep last night, as the weather here calmed. Got up at 8am, and just to see out of --skeptical-- curiosity what the big commercial radio powerhouses out of Chicago had to say if anything.
I found politics, local stuff, giggling, irrelevent news and lots and lots and lots of commercials of course. Just now at 1100am WBBMam780 "All News" radio began with a jewelry heist in downtown Chicago. And of course, NPR is somewhere else far away in distance and time.
But if you didn't know about these links in this thread here on ATS, you could not tell anything happened or that there is such a thing as Joplin Missouri.

A lot of radio stations are owned by Clearchannel and one or two other mega media outlets. The 'dj's that are on them are not even local and they are not allowed by the corporations to deviate from pre-programming. They are advertiser oriented only and to hell with whatever local population is in the area.
