Madonna’s outspoken criticism of the US administration and the war in Iraq is, according to a vocal group of fans, is keeping her latest album "Confessions on a Dance Floor" from getting the radio airplay it deserves.

A petition is being sent by nearly 5,000 Madonna fans, alleging that their beloved singer is being kept off the airwaves of Clear Channel Communications, the massive radio conglomerate that was accused of pulling the Dixie Chicks off the air after one of the band's singers publicly slammed President Bush's policies, reports TMZ.

The petition and its signers, according to MSNBC's Jeannette Walls, say that when they request Madonna's music on Clear Channel-owned stations, they're told that she's "too old or not popular enough," and that her singles are more popular around the world than at home.

A Clear Channel spokesman said the company has no comment "right now."
