Why the Neocon Radio Hosts All Work Together

Someone in this tread asked WHY Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, etc. all beat the same drum.

Check it out ...

Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Fox News Radio are all syndicated by the SAME radio network: Premier Networks.

Premier Networks is owned by Clear Channel Communications.

Clear Channel Communicates was bought by Bain Capital in 2008, Mitt Romney's company.

Meanwhile ...

Mark Levin, Mike Huckabee, and ABC News Radio are all syndcated by Cumulus Media.

Cumulus Media is a public company, and the major shareholder is Crestview Partners.

By the way, Bain Capital also owns part of Cumulus, as does Thomas Lee Partners. Bain Capital and Thomas Lee Partners are the ones who bought Clear Channel. If you add up all the stock of Cumulus that is owned by Crestview Partners, Bain Capital, and Thomas Lee Partners, it adds up to almost 50%. Add in Blackstone and JP Morgan, and it's more than 50%.

Who owns Crestview Partners?

It's a partnership, so the partners own it. It was founded in 2004 by guys from Goldman Sachs.

So ...

Why do all the Neocon radio hosts and networks hate Ron Paul and talk up Gingrich, Santorum, etc.???

FOLLOW. THE. MONEY.
