Apple bars 'all single-station radio apps' from iPhone

Reports (more) that Apple is banning single-station apps on the iPhone (and hence, iPad, etc). Apple began rejecting single-station radio apps on November 10, declaring that it "will no longer approve any more radio station apps unless there are hundreds of stations on the same app." This is because "single station apps are the same as a fart app and represent spam in the iTunes store" (Yes, this is the very first time the word fart has appeared on this website). Could this be coming for, say, newspaper sites too? Maybe they could bundle all the news sites into a single app. Call such an app, oh, I don't know, a 'web browser'.
