Clear Channel is a business, and as such, does things with the primary purpose of making money. This concept is nothing new.
What really gets to me [on both ends of the spectrum] is (a) that something that's portrayed as cool and individualistic [music] is marketed like it's a laundry detergant, and (b) that people act as if the stations Clear Channel takes over were bastions of the independant spirit and true creativity before CC sucked the life out of them.
