Let's not pretend the  playing of prerecorded niche music continues to be
more deserving than  freshly produced news of the huge auditorium that is
Chicago's lead  public-radio station. Let's especially not pretend this
when there's a whole  world out there to try to comprehend.

Interesting, insightful dissertation. 
 
But let's also not pretend the validity of your premise cited  above, that 
Jazz is "well served by the small stages of Internet  and  satellite radio
outlets." One shouldn't be required to make additional  hardware investments 
to be able to hear America's principal cultural  contribution.
