Clear Channel proves hypocrisy with Al Jazeera America ads

Move over Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck – make room for Al Jazeera America.

The talk show giants are featured on Clear Channel’s talk shows across America, often bashing Al Jazeera, the Al Gore transaction and the terrorist ties to the company, yet money seems to speak louder than principles.

Intertwined with the conservative shows are ads for the Al Jazeera America TV, which debuted this week.

Nevermind that Beck spent several segments ranting and raving over the channel.

No, to Clear Channel, all that matters is the all mighty and powerful dollar.

Speaking with a 970 WFLA rep in Tampa, The Global Dispatch was told that the local station manager tried to dump the ads, but the leadership at Corporate said “No!” and the ads played.

Clear Channel has come under heat at time for using paid actors to call into shows and pretend to be listeners and drive the content of the show (a fact even noted on their Wikipedia page)

Now the Bain Capital owners have shown their true colors, it is ONLY about the cash!

Hosts can rant and rave, but when the break comes, the Arab money can buy the air space to plug the network which contradicts the very values touted.

The listeners will have to choose whether to endure this hypocrisy or leap to online streaming or other means to hear their favorite talking heads.

Money talks all right….what will you do with yours?
