"He [a U.S. Senator] knows he's got to buy time
on my radio station, so he's going to lend me an ear.
We're keeping them alive back home and that's why the
newspaper and radio and TV people are more effective lobbyists."
Joseph Costello
owner of 5 radio stations in Louisville, KY
before a U.S. Congressional Hearing, on how media owners affect U.S. politics. U.S. Congressional Quarterly, August 2, 1980, 2179.

    About the only media where you can get something close to the truth is the internet and you have to be careful there.
