The Federal Trade Commission Dear Sir or Madam, I am greatly concerned by what seems to be an attempt to offset the popularity of so called conservative Talk Radio; also through the instituting of artificial mechanisms, such as requiring equal time for less popular formats, and institution of punishment taxes. Such mechanisms as these are blatantly politically derived, and as-such, will initially generate contempt for your agency, and ultimately fuel a massive populist backlash, which will affect every aspect of your future endeavors.
