Write The FCC To Oppose Warhawk Radio Like WNIR
by Take Back Our Airwaves Tuesday, Jul. 10, 2012 at 3:16 PM

End the domination of 95% of our airwaves by warhawk sportsjock white male racists.

Please complain to the FCC, Senator Sherrod Brown and Rep. Betty Sutton about WNIR which by federal law should be run in the community interest.
Akron Ohio has been a Democratic town for at least 8 decades amd an antiwar town since the 60's.
Yet the Klaus brothers who own WNIR have forcefed racist white male Republican warhawks to the people of Akron ever
since they rented OUR airwaves for pennies on the dollar. On
our airwaves they have made millions as their warhawk
carrion-peddling talk show hosts cut off people who oppose
the current Republican candidates. Bob Golic has a daily diatribe in favor of Republican candidates and makes fun of callers. For example about one older gentleman: "He probably has 8 teeth." Temporary talk show hosts
Bob Earley and Jim Isabella have been especially rude.
There are no blacks as talk show hosts. Two women are assigned sidekick roles. When Joe Finan resigned, the promise to replace him with a Democrat
was broken. The Klaus brothers like to say WNIR is a family, but it is a
plantation, with only the owners running the show and profiteering.
WNIR has become a racist, warmongering, caller-censoring, sportsjock
show followed on the weekend by national Republican shows such as Jim Bohannon and Mike Gallagher.
