Story in the Post this morning said that Clear didn't like the interview about the Paris Hilton tapes.

He may be an idiot but when you're stuck in traffic on the NJ TPK he sure helps pass the time.

I guess it is all in personal taste. I have never laughed at Stern; to me he is just not funny. But on the other hand I find Larry David on Curb your enthusiasm hilarious. I have never really liked Cheers but I never missed an episode of Frasier. Go figure..

Although I don't listen, as I think he is tastless...I don't infringe on his right to broadcast, as long as he plays by the rules set down by his bosses....just like every other enployee in America. If he f*cks up, he should be held accountable

d-hlaw...any black helicopters around your house lately.... .

Here is the article

Stern sacked

Just wait until the day he gets Anna on there, starts telling her how her tennis career is all washed up and all she really has left is her body,,, and that we all should be the judge of that,,, and eventually convinces her to get NEKKKID !!!... ... Come on Howard,, help some brotha's out..

I never once liked Stern. I don't even think he has a quick wit. It doesn't take any talent to be rude and do everything for shock value. Bubba the Love Sponge got axed as well. I guess CC didn't enjoy that $775,000 fine. They probably knew because of the Janet Jackson fiasco that the gov was going to be looking into it and if they hadn't taken steps to correct what they've already been in trouble for the punishment would be even more harsh.

D-hlaw,

You are normally a very good source of information. But to post publically that our nation wasn't founded on Christian principles....

You might wish this to be the case, but the historical record clearly contridicts your statement.

it is rather ironic how many bleeding heart libs im seeing on this board..im an american, my grandfather died so i can have my rights as as american.. i wonder how many of you that dont like howard, i bet most of like to go to strip bars , or maybe, like to watch porn...i do know many of you enjoy the naughty section of this board, but i guess thats ok. some of you even go as far to post naked pics of your loved ones, but i guess thats ok too... what most of you dont understand about howard, its not what is show is about , its what he has done to open the eyes of some of these very closed minded people. you may not like what he has to say, but if you dont see that he is a genius and a pioneer in his own right you are blind. how many of you are successful doing what you love, with your own original idea. how many of you changed the business your in for the better. i am a howard stern fan, i dont always like what he has to say, but at least he has the balls to say it. howard stern in a small way is what this country is about... having the freedom to do and say what you want. being who you want to be... me, im going to be an american and enjoy burning my fuel and pissing people off with my loud ass rig... Im Mr. Wonderful thats why!!!!!!!!

Last I checked we live in a FREE COUNTRY that many have sacrificed to provide for us. If you don't like Stern or Bubba or whoever else, then exercise your freedom to change the station. Otherwise quit whining, because you know what to expect when tuning into those shows. What should they cut out next?? Leno, Letterman, HBO?

I'm a Republican and feel this way.

Larry David is a [email protected]#$ing Communist. He is on par with Michael Moore. I used to watch his show, but not after some of the comments he has made about Bush and the war. Sorry for the thread hi-jacking...

now back to the Stern debate.

Just to clarify I don't think he should be pulled off. If he attracts an audience then by all means let free market reign, more power to Stern. I just said that to me he doesn't seem funny or interesting to listen to. You can be mad at Clear Channel if you want to but they are well within their right to heave him if they want to. I think your comments need to be directed at the FCC.
