Clearly craven

"It's official: even Clear Channel is sick of Clear Channel. The company has set up a fake pirate radio station in Akron, Ohio, which it's using to hurl insults at other Clear Channel stations. For about a week, Radio Free Ohio has feigned overthrowing Ohio's media monopoly..." writes Carrie McLaren. "Sayeth the website: 'Radio in Ohio sucks. We know, We've listened...Most importantly, gone are the days of multiple viewpoints and opinions. Instead we get corporate mandated opinions from talking heads. Corporate controlled music playlists, and so on.' It's hard to believe that upper management would have their heads so far up their asses as to think this is a good idea." (StayFree!)
