Bain Capital Owns Clear Channel (Romney Supported by Talk Show sphere)

Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Michael Savage, etc. under umbrella company that candidate Mitt Romney headed.

Wouldn’t it be great if a Republican presidential candidate could just buy the support of just about every major conservative talk show host in America? Well, it may not be as far-fetched as you may think.

Clear Channel owns more radio stations (850) than anyone else in the United States. They also own Premiere Radio Networks, the company that syndicates the radio shows of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck, among others.

Needless to say, Clear Channel basically owns conservative talk radio in the United States. So who owns Clear Channel?

I don't really keep track of the various radio & tv talk hosts. I listen to 760 AM in my car, but my clock radio is over 40 years old and it got stuck on 1370 some years ago. Will go to ABC warehouse soon to remedy that. Meantime, do know who Levin is, sort of, and have listened to bits and pieces of his programs. 760 carries Limbaugh and Hannity, so I get them fairly regularly. Since I worship the one true God, and follow the sciptural instruction: "Put not your trust in princes."... I don't generally get involved in radio or tv hosts' problems. They are big boys and girls & can fight their own battles.

Having said all that what really caught my attention in your posted e-mails was Brian Wilson saying that Levin had voice quality problems? Really? I mean, I know Wilson is full of himself. But his voice is the worst I have ever heard on radio. He doesn't know that?

As to Levin attacking Ron Paul (I wasn't aware of that) - well that's Levin's opinion. Why does he have to hide it? I have a good personal friend down south with whom I can't discuss Ron Paul any longer. As a long-time supporter of Dr. Paul, I have serious problems with things he has done during this current campaign. My friend, however, is basically: "Ron Paul all the way forever". Which I think is goofy, as politicians are not gods.

I stopped listening to Brian Wilson long ago for various reasons, but overall I got tired of listening to him call Mayor Finkbeiner a "pantload", got tired of listening to him name drop all the time so we would know how important he (Wilson) is, got tired of him kissing up to a local "alternative" paper editor who is almost always on the liberal side of anything... just got tired of listening to somebody who thought so highly of himself.

Your posted e-mails proved what I had thought for a long time - BW needs to get over himself. All he had to do was cancel Levin's program. Instead he tries to make the case, as always, that he is taking some kind of moral high road.

You're right about his voice. It's somewhere between the old time Southern politician, Huey( Kingfish)Long, and the radio/television star, George( Kingfish)Stevens, aka Tim Moore. But for the life me, I can't stand BW yodeling into the microphone:" welcome to toaddlie-odedily-odedily-oh". Whatever Fred gets paid to listen to that, it isn't enough.

Let's face it, BW worships that tired old philosophy, and that sad old man running for office on it. Since Pauls' a doctor, and believes in "anything goes" as far as drugs are concerned----it begs the question----> what would a close scrutiny of HIS prescription writing history reveal?

You do know that Willliam F. Buckley was in favor years back of de-criminalizing marijuana, don't you? It's not an original idea with Dr. Paul. And Buckley is supposedly this conservative "saint". I don't believe that, but that was his reputation while still living. Anyway, just for info...

Yes but, the Congressman takes it a further step than marijuana. He supports an end to the War on Drugs and believes the safe purchase of drugs would end drug cartels.

To that I would point to Whitney Houston. She died from an apparent misuse of a legal drug. Legalization does not end the problem. Likewise the marijuana dispensaries in California have not had the widespread impact of reducing the drug problem as it's proponents have said it would, if anything it has exacerbated it.

So would I support the decriminalization of marijuana, yeah I'd listen to that and discuss it. I would even agree that some of the sentences for drug offenses are excessive. Do I support the end of the War on Drugs and allow for the safe purchase of other drugs that are now illegal? Absolutely not!

Additionally the Congressman is wrong when he states the Federal gov't does not have the authority to criminalize drugs. The federal government can most certainly prevent the importation and interstate transfer of goods and the use thereof.

In fact, the biggest problem I have currently of Marines using drugs isn't marijuana, crack, coccaine, heroine, or methamphetamine. It's spice. Otherwise known as bath salts that can be smoked to induce halucinations. It's perfectly legal to sell but yet is a major problem to our combat readiness.

I would much rather have the discussion of permanently taking away the driver's licenses of people who operate vehicles and machinery under the influence of drugs and alcohol because they have shown a willingness to put their own selfish desires ahead of the lives of others. We already do it for professional truck drivers, we should do it for everyone.


I've switched to listening to Mark Levin on WJR 760 AM from 8-11 p.m. The good news is that WJR doesn't pre-empt Levin's show for Indians baseball (yuck!). Free Talk Live is a snoozer with a couple of punks as hosts--no thanks. I also can't take Bill Cunningham on Sunday nights. He took over for Matt Drudge several years ago and he's a bit of a dirty old man. If you listen to his afternoon show on Cincinnati 700 AM, not only is he constantly using sexually suggestive/potty humor, but he was very vocal about his support of defeating SB5. Thank god for my iPad because I don't have to rely on a local program director's decisions to access the radio personalities and shows I like.

Cmon galt, don't be such a prude. Willie is hilarious.

...and he's "A great American!"
