Media For Democracy 2004

As a former local radio broadcaster here in Maine its a subject close to my heart. I left the industry voluntarily when the stations I managed were sold to the big boys (most notably Clear Channel) as I didn't want to work at a radio Wal-Mart.

Sure enough, despite promises of commitment to quality and local programming, what dominates the airwaves both in Maine and across the nation is the same cheesy, poorly produced, conservative, uninspired pap that will only serve to alienate the listeners it purports to serve.
