That's a strange way of putting it. If radio was....
I stated it that way simply to illustrate differing perceptions held by the public vs people in the business.
The public thinks the radio is "for" them.
They never read the 1967 book defining public broadcasting as that, and commercial radio as a business district.
The public persists in thinking the "content" is what radio is about.
Radio people should
know it's all about business, and business is by definition a "non-fair" zone.
It's about success in occupying ears, not listening or any kind of assessment of content.
The highest rated station would naturally be one that is compelling to listen to, but contains only content that becomes
immediately irrelevant or incorrect. Like news and sports.
Hey, wait a minute.
