This is political, the leftist want to squash talk radio. This is a veiled attempt. Don’t be suckered.
Leftists have pretty much given up on their jihad against talk radio. The average talk demographic is now over 50. People under 40 have no idea what AM is. People under 30 don’t even listen to radio, and the Obamabots have largely captured them on their wireless devices.
They are just sitting back waiting for us and/or the technology to die off.
I am personally a little more paranoid on this. I think they want to force all mass communication to the Internet, where they can monitor who is watching/listening to/reading what.
They need to drive a stake through IBOC and leave AM alone. We need one long distance, reliable, technically simple, and untraceable means of mass communication.
