Romney Group Buys Clear Channel

Lew Rockwell is reporting that Bain Investments, the firm managed by Mitt Romney, is in the process of acquiring Clear Channel, the mega-communications conglomerate which controls over 1,000 radio stations, including those hosting most right-wing talk radio.

This might explain what is going on in talk radio recently. They are trying to heard conservatives toward Romney, who does not have an actual record that merits such support. My read on it is that they are joining the rest of the corporate media in a brownout of Ron Paul and trying to make Mitt the man. This may be part of the reason why.

In the days of mass communication concentrated in very few hands, it does not matter what the truth is when there is no one left to tell it.

I'd wondered what on earth was going on. I think the "Christian" groups may be under some of this influence as well. They don't even mention Ron Paul.
