A government owned radio station in Jefferson, GA. It is certainly a novel way to raise money for the local government — competing in the free market with a radio station — but I’m always concerned that over time the pure motives of the government will give way to the more common lesser motives of government and corrupt the intent of the station.
Likewise, of course, have they considered that they’re going to have to pay taxes now? I hope they accounted for the cost of the accountant.
But, credit to Jefferson for thinking different instead of raising taxes.
[UPDATE:] Jeff Emanuel tells me he’s the station director. Very cool. That, of course, means the station will be pro-America, pro-free market, and anti-college Republicans.
