You would think by the tone of my site I’d say, “About time!”, to news that Clear Channel is suspending broadcasts of Howard Stern. You’d be dead wrong.
1. People who tuned into the Super Bowl got a half time show they didn’t expect.
2. People who tune into Howard Stern know exactly what to expect. It’s not family entertainment and it’s not ment to be.
It’s a huge difference. One that matters.
There is political hay being made over this and other social issues – an uproar that is being encouraged – a fire given fuel – turning our attention away from missing WMDs, missing jobs, missing anthrax suspects, missing Bin Laden, missing future Social Security and so much more.
They are getting away with it and I’m afraid of what’s becoming of our country.
If you don’t like Stern, at least ask yourself: why now?
More details at Classless Warfare. Turns out the offensive word was never even heard on the air and that Stern has been directing more attacks Bush’s way.
