FCC decision strikes critical blow to right-wing radio 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 whatís being broadcast by major corporations and Americaís political right.

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

The FCCís 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 ó all of which rake in big dollars from the most popular right-wing syndicated talk shows going.

Ohhhhhhhhhhh Nooooooooooooooooo! RUsh is dooooooooomed I tell ya.....
