I need 3 sources that aren't Wikipedia or blogs or something. And just general suggestions. Thanks.

Those might be of some help.

This is a blog, and it's old, so you probably don't want to cite it directly, but it gets the idea right nonetheless. in the realm of 'general suggestions'. cuz of google.

Well CLEAR CHANNEL IS DEAD so its kind of tough to say anything now.... Find the article on it being sold off piece by piece and about 1000 radio stations being put back into the game..

"The Man" is more than one person.

Andrew, I did a speech for my speech class my freshman year of college about how evil Clear Channel was as well. It was up at Cal Poly SLO. All I remember is my introduction. I took out a radio and went through all our stations (about 14 up there) and called out each time we passed a clear channel one. It was like 10 out of 14. Ridiculous.

Clear Channel is evil and leads to the homogenization of radio programming. In addition, too few companies own media outlets today. Antitrust laws need to be enforced when it comes to the ownership of media outlets.

Google "Howard Stern and Clear Channel"; he has some classic Clear Channel rants around somewhere.

Clear Channel being broken up could not haver happened soon enough. Clear Channel and many of its executives were huge financial donors to George W Bush and the Republican Party in general. They pioneered "voicetracking" that ending up eliminating having local disc jockeys on the airwaves.

Andrew, do a speech on how fucking annoying bumping old threads is. It's timely, it's a universal theme, and you get to drop the f-bomb in class.

It is still a relevant thread. Media conglomeritization is something that needs to be exposed in as many venues as possible.

perhaps. Your idiocy, however, is best left to moulder in the dark.

And smilies need to be exposed in as many venues as possible too?

It is still a relevant thread. Media conglomeritization is something that needs to be exposed in as many venues as possible.

if the thread were titled, "Let's Discuss the Evils of Media Conglomerates, for example, Clear Channel," then it would be a relevant thread. Since it is, in fact, a thread over three months old wherein the author asks for help writing a speech that he has probably long since delivered, it isn't relevant.

I don't want to dissuade you, though, from finding and bumping threads that deal with other hot-button, up-to-the-minute news like the invention of the internal combustion engine, the appointees to the Warren Commission, or whether one should wear spats when going to a speakeasy.

And the smilies thread. Don't forget that one. Nothing stimulates discussion like a six month old thread debating the relative emotion-displaying merits of a dancing pink elephant versus an alien throwing out obscene gestures.

edit: Am I the only one who hopes that Andrew included his Jackstraw sig quote somewhere in his speech?

"Smile like you mean it." I think that is an example of a song title giving a command.

Or you could do a speech on the history of the f-bomb if you REALLY wanted to drop the f-bomb.
