Sorry, no dissenting opinions will be heard in North Carolina. State controlled news, just what America needs.

State Rep. Mike C. Stone (R-NC)
Stone’s state legislative office complained to the college’s president after one of the program’s hosts criticized Stone’s proposals to subvert local control and add more partisanship to the political process.
NC Policy Watch reported Friday that, following the critical editorial against Stone’s proposals, Stone’s legislative assistant sent CCCC President T.E. “Bud” Marchant an email asking if the program is affiliated with the college. A day later, Stone’s aide followed up with more questions from the second-term legislator, demanding to know:
What is their programming schedule and format? Each day, each time slot. What show filled the FCC requirement when they stopped doing The Rant. Or did they stop? Has the show been in production since 2008? What is the radio station’s budget? What is the source of its funding?
But I'm not sure he could answer half of those questions if they were put about his own political operation...
