Inside higher ed comment

Dean Dad, if the proliferation of pathways for the audience to consume content is so wide, then why are corporations buying up valuable "left of the dial" stations? Personally, I've never heard a podcast and only briefly heard satellite radio, and I imagine the general public is much like me. A real value is lost when a college radio station is sold to the highest bidder.

I read this post as another adminstrator making an excuse to sell off an asset which should belong to the nonprofit learning community. What's next, praising legislators who think Jackson Pollocks and other valuable art should be sold to the highest bidder simply to fill the latest budget hole?

I know I'm probably misreading this particular article, but too often on this blog I often hear the echo of the CEO-type administrator mindset which I'd like Dean Dad to fight so much harder against: hammer the unions, humiliate the adjuncts, sell the assets, get in bed with the corporations, credential the weak students to keep up "retention."

Who invited Gordon Gekko on campus? College radio stations getting sold should be universally denounced for the principle it creates. The exception becomes the rule.
No profanes - sacred
