Clear Channel CEO Responds to Reid

Clear Channel CEO Mark P. Mays responded to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's calls to censure talk radio superstar Rush Limbaugh in a letter hand-delivered to the Democrat's office this evening.

"While I certainly do not agree with all views that are voiced on our stations, I will not condemn our talent for exercising their right to voice them," Mays wrote.

He took a respectful tone, saying he regretted that Reid and others might have been offended by Limbaugh. But, Mays wrote, he didn't believe Limbaugh's statements were "intended to personally indict combat soldiers simply because they didn't share his own beliefs regarding the war in Iraq."
