SeeTheSpending.org, a project of the Mississippi Center for Public Policy, is an excellent tool for Mississippi's voters. The website makes it easy to search state agency spending, and to see how your tax dollars are being used.
Thanks to SeeTheSpending.org, we've been able to uncover that SuperTalk Mississippi, a statewide radio network with a decidedly conservative Republican bent, has been showered with state money since 2003. In fact, the radio network who's hosts spend all day bashing "wasteful" government spending raked in over $6,000,000.00 in the last 8 years.
SuperTalk Mississippi is owned by Telesouth Communications, Inc. Here's a year-by-year breakdown of Telesouth Communications, Inc.'s state funding from FY2004 to present:
FY2011: $295,823.00 (so far)
You read that right: $6,012,408.08 since FY2004 on radio ads to a company built in large part on anger about government spending.
