And for today's schadenfreude delight: Clear Channel has been forced to cut back on a number of conservative radio shows ... to pay back massive debts incurred by Bain Capital.

    NB:  Do not keep a score card.  Just let it wash over you.

    But taking this on another tack, apologies to the OP, smart money's on Clear Channel's next major - major - initiative being to send the sales force into the Spanish language market.  A key part of the strategy to bring the Hispanic vote back from 25% to more in line with the 44% President Bush got.  A little of Mr. Limbaugh and a lot of Sen. Rubio.  Nah, it could never be a little of Mr. Limbaugh.

    Last week’s exit of controversial WSPD-AM 1370 talk-radio host Brian Wilson follows a yearlong pattern of dismissals, layoffs, and corporate maneuvering by Clear Channel Communications Inc. that has sent scores of people to the unemployment line.

    Clear Channel, the largest radio station operator in the country, is partially owned by Bain Capital, which is the company founded and previously run by former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

    Bain Capital and Thomas H. Lee Partners, two private-equity firms, finalized their $26.7 billion purchase of Clear Channel in July, 2008, loading the company with debt. According to Clear Channel’s Nov. 2 filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the company had $16.4 billion in debt.

    The company’s debt must be repaid throughout the decade and comes due as soon as 2014. The 2008 sale was the catalyst for thousands of layoffs as Clear Channel restructured.
