    Video via @FMmovie: Bain Capital, Clear Channel & the Downfall of Radio 

    The internet didn’t kill radio, commercial radio is killing itself.  Ever wonder why über-corporations like Clear Channel can take over local radio stations, fire your favorite DJ and ignore the local music movements?  How can they make money when fewer and fewer people listen?  Private Equity firms such as Bain Capital have destroyed radio and made handsome profits along the way.

    “Big Money, Big Media, Big Trouble” says Marty Kaplan of @LearCenter: Video via @MoyersStaff 

    via Norman Lear Center

    Big money and big media have coupled to create a ‘Disney World’ of democracy in which TV shows, televised debates, even news coverage is being dumbed down, just as the volume is being turned up. The result is a public certainly more entertained, but less informed and personally involved than they should be, says Marty Kaplan, director of USC’s Norman Lear Center and an entertainment industry veteran. This weekend on Moyers & Company (check local listings), Bill Moyers talks with Kaplan about how taking news out of the journalism box and placing it in the entertainment box is hurting democracy and allowing special interest groups to manipulate the system.
