ClearChannel is not in the radio business

Lowry Mays, founder and CEO of ClearChannel, says:

"If anyone said we were in the radio business, it wouldn't be someone from our company. We're not in the business of providing news and information. We're not in the business of providing well-researched music. We're simply in the business of selling our customers products."

      Well, a whole lot of people seem to be under the impression that Clear Channel is in the business of slapping babies and burning bibles.

      That it actually sells customers a product is hardly ever mentioned in the "Clear Channel is the debil" articles in the paper.

    i would say that's accurate- right?
    and the radio/billboard/other-media stuff are just means to that end?
