Paul Fahri On Talk Radio and Rush

Interesting Washpo piece on how talk radio is "uniquely vulnerable" to certain kinds of pressure on advertisers. Links back to what I said last week re: markets, but adds some new details on talk radio specifically.

Although not mentioned by Fahri, it helps that Clear Channel is not merely in debt up to its eyebrows, but also that its previous Extremely Conservative management was gradually nudged out of decision making by the hedge fund operators who rescued it from bankruptcy. The current management team is much more interested in making money than anything else in the freaking universe.
