CHARLIE SHEEN, GLENN BECK, Keith Olbermann, Simon Cowell, Katie Couric, Oprah Winfrey, Laura Schlessinger and Scott Pelley might sound like an unlikely dinner party, other than sharing a high tax bracket.
The company--which owns and operates some 700 radio stations--earned that standing in part by employing on-air personalities like Sean Hannity and Laura Schlessinger. In spring 2004, Clear Channel's political action committee favored Republican candidates over Democrats nationally nearly 4 to 1; this fact, along with the persistent rumor that the company's radio stations ban antiwar artists like the Dixie Chicks and Madonna, only contributed to the Murdoch-ian rap.
