I've wondered about that myself...many advertisers tend to avoid 
controversial programming...often stating specific programs they do not 
want their spots to run in.

As far as AA programming appearing sold out in some markets...I wonder how 
many are actually sold or if they're just bonus spots (ie-buy a schedule on 
our 3 FMs and we'll throw in x number of spots on our AM at no 
charge).  Syndicated programming of any type can be tough to sell.
