What? He's not actually RIDING in the balloon. An anecdote with a web stream doesn't mean anything more than playing "Up, Up And Away" The Fifth Dimension.
What WDTW (AM) seems to going through is a LOT of unwarranted (and legally questionable) discrimination. If specific ground rules were on paper, signed and delivered, then WDTW has every right to cover the event as agreed to.
And if Clear Channel's other stations are allowed to broadcast the events, but suddenly, WDTW isn't. Then it's time for Clear Channel to step up to the plate and ask some direct questions about WHY. Because I don't understand what's going on here. If everyone goes through the same protocols to get in and at the last minute, it's "everyone but YOU" for 1310, something here STINKS.
Not unlike if President Obama said "We'll allow all the networks to carry my State of the Union speech." and just before airtime "Everyone else but Fox....." Can you IMAGINE the UPROAR if THAT happened?
This is no different whatsoever
