Bill O'Reilly can breathe a little easier. Last week while speaking about the reelection of President Obama, the Fox News commentator said, "The white establishment is now the minority. "  But when it comes to who owns the nation's TV and radio stations, whites -- and white males in particular -- are still the majority. The Federal Communications Commission just released its report on the ownership of commercial broadcast stations which reveals that as of 2011, whites own 69.4% of the nation's 1,348 television stations.
