Re: When did Karl first explain this? What an excellent example Clear Channel though they could in effect corner the broadcast market. They automated the small market stations and homogenized most of the big market stations so you couldn't even tell what station you where listening to. If you will recall Clear Channel was in cahoots with the RIAA in their attempt to kill streaming radio with ruinous licensing fees. This ultimately failed. Now the only place that has diversity in listening choices is on line. Belatedly Clear Channel came up with iHeart radio to stream a number of it's stations but even then there are unforeseen consequences. iHeart Radio in effect turned the entire Nation into one radio market Which is now dominated by the few Clear Channel stations that are different from the rest. Presently the number one station on iHeart is KFI, Los Angles. So instead of people tuning into their local station on the iHeart app on their smartphones they are going to just a few stations such as KFI. Now Clear Channel is trying to make more money from iHeart Radio by trying to emulate Pandora.A day late and a dollar short move.
I am quite sure now that often, very often, in matters concerning religion and politics a man's reasoning powers are not above the monkey's.
