Howard Stern and the FCC
Your opinion of the whole thing?
Seems like a total witch hunt if you ask me.
|skinsfanthru&thru ||04-16-2004 03:21 AM |
I'm kinda suprised it took this long for them to really crack down on him. I used to think some of his stuff was somewhat funny, but he's highly overrated now. I sometimes watch his show on E! but that's only if someone like Carmen Electra, Pam Anderson, or a few other hot female celebs r gonna be on. I do think they r going way overboard since the Janet JAckson thing especially since you didn't even see her damn nipple. You see things twice as bad on MTV and BET and I remember watching or reading National Geographic stuff as a younger kid just to see the tribal women wearing no clothes. I think we may even start seeing some rulings start to really press the issue of freedom of speech.

I don't think that Stern will ever totally leave the airwaves...In a few more months something else will happen that will be the focus of the government. Anyway, I don't know what I would do if I couldn't listen to Stern in the morning.
My opininion, if you don't like what Stern is saying or anyone else for that matter, turn the dial....that's what the dials are for anyway.

I pretty much hate listening to any radio talk show and would much rather listen to music. I did like the movie Private Parts though. that was pretty funny.

I really dont think Sterns cares and think he is hoping he gets banned. I was listening to him about 4 years ago and he said that he did not think he was going to do his show much longer.
|Mattyk ||04-17-2004 05:11 PM |
If he doesn't care he sure isn't showing it.
Before this happened his website was totally lame, now it's been totally revamped. Plus they talk about the whole thing all the time now. Almost to the point where I get bored and throw in a CD when they get off on a rant.

I never usually listen to him in the morning anyways. When im in Maryland id rather listen to Elliot in the Morning, or in Miami the local rock stations duo. The Mike and Mike show I think is better as well. Howard can be funny sometimes but its just Jerry Springer radio.

I don't really like Howard Stern or Don and Mike that much. Not really my type of humor, I prefer Elliot in the Morning (which is even trashier!!) However, I totally respect their first amendment rights and feel that the FCC is violating that.
Basicly a small minority of hardcore religious "Crusaders" are doing this. With the backing of the white house with such abominations as Rumsfeld who doesn't think abortion should be legal for rape victims. This guy is so warped and jaded it isn't funny, how he got into a position of power is besides me. Basicly the religious groups freak out about 3/4th of a second worth of breast, along with offensive launguage they don't want there kids hearing. Here's a novel idea, fucking be a parent! If you don't want your kids listening here is a simple list of steps to follow:
1) Send them to god damn school, they shouldn't be home from 7-10 anyways. Most schools make it so kids have to be out of the house by 7 (Does howard start earlier? Maybe.)
2) Keep an eye on your children. I don't want to have to listen to the disney channel on every station because there's a chance a parent can't keep their sheltered child away from it.
3) Just let your kid listen to it. I've seen kids sheltered like this before, when they hit puberty they go crazy. Especially when they hit college age and don't have anyone there. Don't try to hide the world from your children and they won't become cast out from society or the other extreme, whores.
4) They're going to hear worse on the school yard.
Basicly, this is all political. I guarantee that there is no way Howard goes off before November. There have been several reports of the white house meeting with the FCC and saying not to touch him till November, because it simply would lose the white house votes. Not to mention the current FCC is a puppet for our current administration. A guy named Michael Powell runs the FCC... Yeah... Powell... Colin's son. That explains some things.
Between that awful 9/11 press conference and this FCC trash I think Bush might be in some trouble. Thank god.

Kinda funny how shortly after Stern started speaking out against Bush he was pulled from Clear Channel, who reportedly receives a healthy amount of money from republican supporters. Hmmmm......
|skinsfanthru&thru ||04-18-2004 01:36 PM |
I'm going out on a limb here and saying there seem to be quite a few democrats on the Warpath.
|SKINSnCANES ||04-18-2004 03:01 PM |
lol, ya never know. All everyone has done is make fun of Bushs intelligence. I typically vote republican, but that doesnt mean George Bush hasnt said about a millions stupid things.
|Daseal ||04-18-2004 05:19 PM |
For me, I like both sides of the ball for certain things, although cpayne will tell you quite differently. I just think that our current administration is made up of animals who try to attempt to violate our civil rights in order to leave their mark on history. I love how the oil companies have done virtually the same thing Enron did with lying about their production and the amount of oil they have in their reserves yet no action has been taken. The only thing that could make this administration worse is if they added Mel Gibson. I hate that son of a bitch.
Bush is the type of guy I'd love to party with, but wouldn't let him balance my check book, no less our country. Personally I hope Kerry chooses McCain as his running mate, although I think it's a bit far fetched because I think that would force McCain to switch over to democrat, which won't happen. I'm a bit ignorant as to how that works. If I were President (haha) I would try to have many republicans on my staff and democrats. That way I would get the view from both sides of the ball and could make a balanced decesion.
|SKINSnCANES ||04-18-2004 05:26 PM |
If only it worked that way. Im sure one day there will be a new party that comes into office that tries to split the difference and tried to make better decisions instead of a decision based on the view of the party.
|Mattyk ||04-18-2004 08:50 PM |
Personally I'm not a fan of either Bush or Kerry. Bush is the lesser of the two evils and I'm leaning on the 'Anybody but Bush' side.
I voted for Nader last time around. I wish he would have gotten into the game much earlier.
|skinsfanthru&thru ||04-19-2004 04:11 AM |
I just wish for once there was someone with a legitimate chance to win who wasn't extremely on one side of the line or the other. I know I'm sometimes liberal about things and others I'm conservative. and as far as the personal privacy goes, I hate how it's getting less and less but if it's kept under strict monitered control, I can except that to keep my friends and family safe. in my mind it touches on what JFK said, "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country." but like I said that's just how my mind's eye see's it. and I can't be the only one who hates it when actors speak out about political topics can I?
