Romney dont pay my bills, why should I vote for him?. Or care?. Wouldn't it be
great if a Republican presidential candidate could just buy the support of just
about every major conservative talk show host in America? Well, it may not be as
far-fetched as you may think. Clear Channel owns more radio stations (850) than
anyone else in the United States. They also own Premiere Radio Networks, the
company that syndicates the radio shows of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and
Glenn Beck, among others. Needless to say, Clear Channel basically owns
conservative talk radio in the United States. So who owns Clear Channel? Well,
it turns out that Bain Capital is one of the primary owners of Clear Channel.
Yes, you read that correctly. The company that Mitt Romney ran for so long is
one of the "big bosses" over virtually all conservative talk radio in
America. We're talking about millions upon millions of dollars. So if you have
been wondering why so many conservative talk show hosts are being so incredibly
kind to Mitt Romney, this just might be the answer. Some of the most prominent
conservative talk radio hosts are earning tens of millions.
