1. This happened when Obama won 4 years ago.

They tried to get rid of 92.1 in Madison and the community pushed back. Threatened boycotts and it worked.

2. they attempted to do this with tom joyner a couple of years ago.

he moved everything to radio one and got from underneath clear channel. radio one is a black owned entity with tv and radio stations across the country. this has saved black activist radio-tom joyner and michael baisden. progressives have start to get their own. al gore did on tv but it is not enough. we have to fight from the outside, cant fight them on their won airwaves.

4. No doubt we're on their hit list.

An other perspective to clear channel and Murdock media is very important, when is he to be charged? oh ya, Holder is on the job, I forgot.
when I took civics in 9th grade, the teacher explained the importance of a free press. what ever happened, that that is no longer relevant to Democracy?weren't their laws against corporate media takeover in the past?

6. I'm pissed enough to fight back.

Are you?

I actually started this before KPOJ went down because I'm in a temp living situation with a tea-bagger. All I hear is hate radio from Huckabee,Limp-butt, and all the R-W bottom feeders. Just absolute garbage from people who don't give a shit about this country. I'm sick of it. We scored a touchdown last Tuesday. No reason why we can't score another one (Coach Chip Kelly of Oregon): "score, score, score".

So please take a moment and sign this, then tell your friends.

I'm up for a fight. Corporate media has got to end.
