All Bush, All the Time
Fox to Provide News to Clear Channel Stations
Fox will provide a five-minute top-of-the-hour newscast, a nightly news broadcast, and around-the-clock dedicated national news coverage. In return, Fox News Radio will have access to news produced by San Antonio-based Clear Channel's news network. [ed. i.e., the office that xeroxes the Bush propaganda and manufactures Swift Boat shit].They've figured out the sweetest deal I ever heard of. Why bother buying the stations and risk FCC intervention and liberals whining all over your doorstep, when you can simply buy the content?
"Working this closely with a premiere national news provider for the majority of our news/talk stations makes overwhelming sense," said John Hogan, chief executive officer of Clear Channel Radio. "Because of the breadth of this relationship, our local news directors will get a more customized and higher quality national news product - and that's great for listeners."
"This deal positions Fox News to become a significant player in the radio industry and is another example of our commitment to the
Republican Partymedium," said Roger Ailes, Fox News chairman and CEO.
Good morning friends, and it's a gray morning indeed. So gray I didn't make it out of bed until recently. An excess of political fun yesterday, I'm thinking.
So will check out the world beyond the coffee cup and try to not think about what's happening in Fallujah (via Steve Gilliard via Atrios), and how we can do something more here at home. Update: BoingBoing has an excerpt of the long article too.
Of course, you Clear Channel people know nothing about it, and never will.
