Clear Channel's "pirate" radio: Well before its debut next Tuesday, the supposed pirate-radio station, Free Radio Ohio, has been outed as a fraud. As Carrie McLaren writes, the station has, for the last week "feigned overthrowing Ohio's media monopoly by bleeding its broadcasts into other Clear Channel stations." A poster at WOXY.com, intrigued that the station was ranting against other Clear Channel stations in the Akron/Canton market, did a search on the station's website domain registration. What they discovered: "the site is registered to Clear Channel, presumably as a promotion for an upcoming format switch at one of their Akron-area stations."

Update 8:21 pm: StayFree! has more.
