And the "machine" is the idiocy of two Loudoun County supervisors, Kelly Burk and Sally Kurtz, who voted against permitting a new (and what would be the only) radio station in Loudoun County.
As quoted in the Loudoun Independent, Burk explained her opposition: “I don’t believe it is going to be local programming."
First of all, the BOS should not play FCC or program director. We need a local station, period. And though there's no guarantee that the new WAGE will touch local issues, it is certain that there won't be any local issues aired without it.
