NPR station goes Clear Channel??
Okay, so I didn't think that I was particularly naive about public radio and NPR's status as corporate/commercially funded radio these days. But this article in the LA Times, KUSC sees no evil in alliance (free reg required), managed to surprise me.

In a move skeptics might call a deal with the devil, but those involved see as a match made in heaven, public radio station KUSC today is announcing a partnership with the nation's largest radio company, Clear Channel Communications.

I sympathize, of course, with their money woes. But outsourcing to Clear Channel of all possible sources?
