And what about how silent they were over Clear Channel's many abuses 
during the days of rampant media consolidation, when CC bought up 
over 1200 stations, fired news staffs, eradicated localism, etc 
etc--- ah but they were the NAB's biggest dues-paying member, so the 
NAB said  nothing as voice-tracking and a total lack of localism 
permeated market after market, costing many of us our jobs.  The NAB 
was founded in 1923 to be a VOICE for local broadcasters (that sound 
you hear is the late great John Shepard 3rd spinning in his grave...).
