This does not surprise me at all. It is sad. I have a myspace account, but I can't get to it here, they block it because it was consuming too much of our bandwidth.

Goes to show that most of the military uses it as well!

CNN owned by Clear Channel Communications, the nation's largest radio chain.

Clear Channel has a monopoly on a lot of things, not good for Democracy!


Before passage of the 1996 Telecommunications Act, a company could not own more than 40 radio stations in the entire country. With the Actís sweeping relaxation of ownership limits, the cap on radio ownership was eliminated. As a result, Clear Channel has dominated the industry by growing from 40 radio stations nationally in the mid-90s, to approximately 1225 stations nationally by 2003. The station also dominates the audience share in 100 of 112 major markets. In addition to its radio stations, Clear Channel also owns television station affiliates, billboards, outdoor advertising, and owns or exclusively books the vast majority of concert venues, amphitheaters, and clubs in the country. According to NOW with Bill Moyers, in 2000 Clear Channel purchased the nationís largest concert and events promoter, and in 2001, the Clear Channel did 70% of national ticket sales.

Vertical Real Estate

In 2003, Clear Channel created the Vertical Real Estate division and hired Scott Quitadamo to promote its tower portfolio. Clear Channel owns and operates approximately 1,500 broadcast transmission towers across the US; many of which ara available for co-location by third parties such as cellular and PCS companies, wireless internet, fixed wireless, and other broadcasters.

Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
