Youth Radio Mulching Without Government Meddling

Press Release Libertarianz Party

Youth Radio Mulching Without Government Meddling

Libertarianz broadcasting deregulation spokesman Larry Timberlake today congratulated Tony Katavich, owner of Kaikohe's youth radio station "The Mulcher", for proving that such a business can develop and grow without Government meddling or taxpayer's money.

"Although this Kaikohe station may be small, it is a mouse that roars out that the Government is wrong to assume minority groups can never have a voice except at the taxpayer's expense. The existence of this station allows the Labour/Alliance broadcasting policy to be seen for what it is: a blatant vote-buying exercise. How else can one explain a taxpayer-funded radio network based on age-discrimination and a taxpayer-funded television network based on racial discrimination?" asks Timberlake.

"Broadcasting needs Government intervention," says Timberlake, "in exactly the same way as newspapers or magazines need Government intervention -- which is to say, not at all."

It's enough to make you vote Libertarianz!
