Maybe it's a case of clueless corporate drones.  They don't take the time 
to even find out what other businesses their own employer is involved in.

The proper way to announce this would be: "Radio station owner Clear 
Channel suspended carriage of the Howard Stern show over its radio 
stations."  Somewhere in the story, mention that Stern is a product of 
Viacom, parent company of CBS and W Bla Bla Bla.

How come the reporters at Bloomberg can do this when they mention 
something that tangentially involves their employer (so and so is a 
partner in Bloomberg LP, parent company of WBBR - or something to that
