[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.

now back to the Stern debate.
I agree but Larry's show is still funny. When he talks politics I turn him off

The fact is that Clear Channel is a private company. They are going to run it how ever they like. But, if the general public does not like the direction they go, well the ratings will drop and they will loose money. Personally I dont care for Stern one way or the other. I found some of his stuff amusing and other stuff stupid. But I agree that he should be able to do his own thing. If your offended, change the channel. If his parent company or one of his broadcasters doesnt like his show, its their right to cancel it. Now, if it gets to the point where the government steps in to start dictating what we can watch or listen to, I have a problem with that. The foundation of this country is supposed to be freedom. Its been our calling for a couple hundred years. As far as being founded on Christian Principles, to a degree yes to a degree no. Just be carefull when using generalizations without looking at all the facts.

You might wish this to be the case, but the historical record clearly contridicts your statement.
You are incorrect on this, see the seperation of powers clause, writings of the founding fathers, federalist papers, etc. Why would the founders battle the British and an oppressive religious based monarchy to establish one of their own?? The whole concept of our country is a mixing of social and idealogical differences. This thought that america is a "Christian" society and the Christian right forcing of their morals and values on everyone else is offensive.

Im Mr. Wonderful thats why!!!!!!!!
Can I get an Amen for brother Stecz?? Amen!

Well, they are up today so I am guessing that not everyone thinks the dropping of Stern will be bad for their business. Let's not forget. This is a business they are running. If Howard is costing them money in lost advertisers or listeners then they are wise to dump him.

I personally think he is a half wit that does nothing but try to shock his audience. He is a lot like all of the reality TV shows that are on now. Don't really like either of them.
