  •  you're right, but we can't get a new FD w/out (0+ / 0-)

    destroying the radio monopoly first IMO.

    as you point out in your primer, they have the monopoly, and those 1200 radio stations go batshit crazy whenever anyone of media or political stature even mentions fairness doctrine.

    i think the monopoly can be destroyed by getting our universities sports off of RW radio stations - RW radio is hurting financially and as many as 30-40% of rw radio stations depend on those associations for community cred and ad dollars (see link in sig). it couldn't survive if universities were shamed into taking their mission statements seriously and declared they were not renewing their contract and were looking for non-partisan alternatives.

    most of the damage done by getting rid of the FD has been done with rw radio - (see below- )

    unfortunately RW radio is off the radar of most media analysts.

    This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and GOP lies by broadcasting sports on over 170 Limbaugh radio stations.
