Howard Stern-BOO HISS

  1. Is anyone else not surprised that Stern's broadcast have been suspended for 6 radio stations? The man is a total pig. I hope other radio stations in those markets don't pick him up just to up their income. Just my humble opinion.

    I have always thought he was a creep but it cinched it when he talked about his wifes miscarrige on the air like that. It really hurt her and was sooo insensitive. My husband would have found his clothes sitting on the doorstep with the locks changed when he got home after that. Anything he does just doesnt shock me anymore. He isn't funny, just mean spirited. :angryfire
    edited to say was anyone surprised she divoced the jerk?

    Howard Stern pulled from some radio stations? DARN. Now if he'd get pulled off of the globe, i'll be satisfied with that.

    Howard Stern is a complete ignorant pig and frankly I'm quite happy he's been dumped by Clear Channel. It's about time.

    His latest complaint is that his being dumped is an effort by the "conservatives" to silence him. Um, okay. Seeing as Rush Limbaugh, though he resigned first, was essentially dumped by ESPN after what were considered dubious racial comments about McNabb, then for the sake of consistency, Stern has every reason to be dumped, especially after the very clear comments on his show referring to blacks as N's and if they smell like watermelons after sex.

    Disgusting and intolerable. Good riddance.

    Did anyone hear the offensive statement? I read in another discussion board that the comment was made by a caller and that, in fact, Stern has been on a Bush bashing rant lately. I have never listened to him, the snippets I did hear sounded yukky, but he may be getting canned for Bush bashing by his far right-wing bosses.

    The man is just gross. I really hate to think about how much money he makes for being so disgusting. (Especially when I think about how much money I make.)

    He's icky. He's the mirror image of Limbaugh and I wouldn't listen to either one.

    If you don't like him, don't listen.

    I guess my philosophy with radio is what the last poster said - if you don't like it, you don't have to listen to it. I'm not big on radio censorship. But then, I'm not a Stern fan (I think he's YUCK too, but whatever floats your boat....) - so I don't know what the offensive comment was about anyway.

    I'm inclined to agree with you, manna. Even though I find Stern to be completely despicable, he does have fans who, for whatever reason, enjoy listening to him.

    As the ownership of radio stations in the United States becomes more and more limited, should we all be forced to listen to the same sanitized, redundant playlists, or should we be given the ability to choose what we want to listen to?

    Mr. Stern's show is protected under the First Amendment. His being taken off the air on six station is a matter of dollers and cents, he is just not worth the fines Clear Channal is racking up because of his show. That, the fines, is the biggest threat to Mr. Sterns. As soon as he becomes a financial liability he is gone. Nothing personal, just business.

    The FCC has been tightening their regs for months -now the Justice Dept has Planned Parenthood in it's sights....If the present government continues it's actions we will we will loose our right to choose what we listen to,watch and read...and what we do with our own bodies....(and a big thank you goes to Ms Jackson and Mr Timberlake for that Superbowl stunt-that just gave them more ammo) Bush will continue to sit pretty if he can keep our focus away from the things that really matter-like the economy and the environment.......
