I urge the Commission to reconsider the Drudge Tax. Conservative radio is growing with listeners because many conservative Americans - myself included - are alarmed with the policies of the Obama Administration. Commentators like Mark Levin are articulate and insightful, simply reporting on the activities of Congress and the Administration. Why is it my responsibility to subsidize the education of journalists? If Liberal radio were listened to, there would be advertisers to support it. Besides, we have NPR. I understand this coiuld appear on your website and I specifically ask that you do not disclose my name. Thank you for the opportunity to comment.
