The Structural Imbalance of Political Talk Radio
S. Derek Turner and Mark Lloyd's The Structural Imbalance of Political Talk Radio (Free Press, Center for American Progress) is now available from the Policy Archive (free). Here's the abstract:
This report documents in detail the fact that conservative talk radio undeniably dominates the Radio broadcast format. Our conclusion is that the gap between conservative and progressive talk radio is the result of multiple structural problems in the U.S. regulatory system, particularly the complete breakdown of the public trustee concept of broadcast, the elimination of clear public interest requirements for broadcasting, and the relaxation of ownership rules including the requirement of local participation in management.

Turner and Lloyd had to study the industry to conclude that it has been taken over be a reactionary corporate mentality? Broadcast media now serves as little more than a public relations organization for the wealthiest sectors of our country. The FCA has been more concerned with dirty words than with lies, deceit and deception on the air waves.
