No, it's more like Public Radio and TV.

book, etc.)

Money flowing from listeners to the talent.

(With O'Reilley's Web fees going to charity.)

.....right-wing, doesn't's just "odd" that
they would need to get a loan from the Boys Club...and not the traditional
sources that most do.  Possible because they couldn't get loans the
traditional ways, due to their tightrope financial position.

In any event, it's a pretty big risk for the Boy's Club (a charity) to lend
money to broadcaster with very little track record....and whatever financial
track record they had at the time.....had been bad.
