    FCC decision strikes critical blow to right-wing radio dominance
    http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/03/2...dio-dominance/

    A Federal Communications Commission (FCC) decision issued Monday (PDF) will clear the runway for hundreds of new community radio stations that broadcast on low-power FM signals, bringing progressive, community voices to urban areas that have for decades only known what’s being broadcast by major corporations and America’s political right.

    In other words, the dismantling of Rush Limbaugh was just the beginning, and the whole FM dial is next.

    The FCC’s decision on Monday wipes away a massive backlog of applications for FM repeater stations, which are transmitters that repeat signals broadcast by corporate radio operators — all of which rake in big dollars from the most popular right-wing syndicated talk shows going.

    And still no one will listen.

    And whats to say these are going to be progressive networks?

    Whats to say they don't carry Rush on FM now?

    Idiots would only think this is only for them. And who is going to prop them up?

    Not evil corporations?

    Public funding? Those networks never last past the first year.

    By this argument, the FCC should do the same for Conservatives for the decades of liberal (progressive) propaganda that the major networks have been spewing.

    Government sponsored Conservative news networks. I can't wait!

    ummmm...these idiot's realize it's not the first time that they have sold off low-watt radio station signals, last time was about 10 years ago. They are also freeing up the airspace to sell it in auction for wireless carriers to boost their signals and make cellphones and wireless internet cheaper

    How quickly they forget about the disaster called Air America.

    Wonder if they lie themselves again when the whole message starts to circle the bowel.

    Air America wasn't a disaster! Rove plotted to silence it in lieu of their coming plot to attack the world trade center using micro nukes so they could invade Afgan. to justify their war on Iraq! It was all about oil for frying their eggs in the morning. You know how much Cheney is invested in eggs!!!

    LOL and once again the DUmmies display their total ignorance of the situation.

    One of the biggest users of the low power FM repeaters is Christian Radio netowrks like K-Love.
