is a free speech website dedicated to educating the public about entertainment
giant Clear Channel. Clear Channel owns over 1,200 radio stations and 37
television stations, with investments in 240 radio stations globally, and
Clear Channel Entertainment (aka SFX, one of their more well-known subsidiaries)
owns and operates over 200 venues nationwide. They are in 248 of the top
250 radio markets, controlling 60% of all rock programming. They outright
own the tours of musicians like Janet Jackson, Aerosmith, Pearl Jam, Madonna
and N’Sync. They own the network which airs Rush Limbaugh, Dr. Laura, Casey
Kasem, and the Fox Sports Radio Network. With 103,000,000 listeners in
the U.S. and 1,000,000,000 globally (1/6 of the world population), this
powerful company has grown unchecked, using their monopoly to control the
entire music industry.
