  •  Sadie - News Corp is a public company (0+ / 0-)

    News Corporation, the parent of Fox, is a public Delaware corporation traded on NASDAQ. The Murdock family own a controlling interest, but not a majority of the outstanding shares. I do not believe there is any formal business relationship between News Corp, or Fox, or Murdock and the EIB network, which is Limbaugh's production company. While it is private, it is my understanding that Limbaugh owns all of EIB. Clear Channel is the distributor of Limbaugh's radio show. I do not know if there is any ownership by Clear Channel in EIB or EIB in Clear Channel.

    •  So Murdoch has no influence? (0+ / 0-)

      I guess these guys don't know what they're talking about, then:

      Seriously, if the Democrats would come in do some good-old fashioned trust-busting on the media moguls, the rightwing terrorists would be crippled.

      Of course, that would require political will.

      •  Sadie - I read the article (0+ / 0-)

        I agree that media concentration is an important issue. There is nothing in the linked article that mentions any connection between Limbaugh and Murdock.
