I am an American citizen...but it doesn't matter...because the big media have the money and power. I tried to own a radio station in Seattle in 1980, so I applied for a new frecuency "the 1200AM".
But there was a conflict of interest with another station...I applied for 1200AM ...and they were in 1220 AM, and they dicided to move to 1210 AM because their radio station would have more power.
I decided to withdraw the application because I did not have the money and time to fight the legal battle.
They won...and once the FCC approved their station with more power...they sold the station to a big media conglomerate....and the Hispanic community in Seattle lost the opportunity to have a spanish radio station, owned and operated by Hispanics....that is the complete true.Walter Valdivia shared this idea ·
