Interesting that Scott, Joe, Rob, etc are so defensive when confronted with educated people. I wonder why they feel so inferior. We certainly don't feel that way about them. I was told that Americans generally do not value education and so deride those who are educated. That's sad, isn't it.

If they're that smart I'm certain they'll figure out how to push that button to tune in the next radio station when all the public funds are pulled from welfare radio and they no longer exist.

"Smartest" and "best educated" are not necessarily the same thing. Could "best educated" also be interpreted as "most thoroughly indoctrinated" hence their affinity for the programming spin.

6% own HD radios? The HD Radio industry has a history of manipulating polls and surveys. Just ask John Gorman.

"TWO few smart people"? LOL - you may have just provided supporting evidence...

If that's truly the case, then they should have no problem in coming up with a funding solution all on their own.
After all, they're smarter than the rest of us...right?

I suppose there's a comfort at the N.Y. NPR affiliate knowing its patrons are really smart. AHA! Does this explain the listener funding crisis? Why pay to play when one can get a single mom in Kansas working two jobs to pay for the intellegencia?
Wrong? Well, the corollary is there are two few smart people, so it's up to us dumb schmucks to raise and feed Miami's elite.
Does Jacob's Media work for free? No? Who paid for this and what was the point? I'm too dumb to figure it out.
