Romney’s Firm to Buy Clear Channel

It’s a big week for big media: First, Dow Jones & Co. officially approved Rupert Murdoch’s takeover of The Wall Street Journal, and now Lew Rockwell is reporting that Mitt Romney’s private equity firm is buying radio behemoth Clear Channel.

More and more media outlets are being absorbed by the GOP Bushies:

Bush associates still consolidating their hold on US media

Longtime associates of President George W. Bush are consolidating their hold on American media with a string of recent purchases, RAW STORY can report.

Conservative media mogul Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. announced of late the sale of 8 of its US television stations to a private equity firm -- Oak Hill Partners -- for an estimated $1.1 billion dollars that is expected to close sometime in 2008.

The deal leaves Murdoch with another 27 television stations in major US cities such as Boston, New York City, and Los Angeles, as well as The New York Post, a controlling interest in BSkyB, movie studio 20th Century Fox, and Wall Street Journal publisher Dow Jones & Co Inc.

Oak Hill Partners lead investor Robert M. Bass, a longtime associate of George W. Bush, is also the founder of Ft. Worth, Texas-based Bass Brothers Enterprises. Oak Hill issued a statement announcing the stations would be jointly managed by a broadcast holding company, Local TV, that was created by Oak Hill for the purpose of purchasing 9 other television stations from The New York Times previously this year.

Conservative ties for the Bass Brothers

Robert Bass, along with his brothers Lee, Ed, and Sid, from a wealthy Texas oil family, all attended Yale University where Ed was a classmate and friend of George W. Bush. The brothers later became Bush's number 5 career patrons, as well as business dealings with now President Bush.

And most people still believe the media has a liberal bias. :roll:

Why don't the facts have any effect on that outrageous myth?

Facts have not made any difference for those who still support Bush, Cheney, and the neocons...even though it's been proven time and time again that they have spoken mostly outrageous myths every time their mouths move.

The Dummy Dust is still very effective... wherever it's been dumped. :roll:
