    1. THE MEDIA GIANT BEHIND THE PRO-WAR RALLIES
    http://www.nytimes.com/2003/03/25/opinion/25KRUG.html?pagewanted=print&positio
    Paul Krugman notes that "by and large, recent pro-war rallies
    haven't drawn nearly as many people as antiwar rallies, but they
    have certainly been vehement. ... Who has been organizing those
    pro-war rallies? The answer, it turns out, is that they are being
    promoted by key players in the radio industry - with close links to
    the Bush administration. ... Until now, complaints about Clear
    Channel have focused on its business practices. Critics say it uses
    its power to squeeze recording companies and artists and
    contributes to the growing blandness of broadcast music. But now
    the company appears to be using its clout to help one side in a
    political dispute that deeply divides the nation."
