I guess BN isn't the only place banning people now

    You know, I heard that bit yesterday and it was nothing different than any other day on his show. He has been talking this week about hanging it up right now because of the new decency rules. The problem with the rules, according to his show, is no one knows what they are until after they violate them.

    I for one enjoy the little bit of his show I listen to on the way to work in the morning and hope he fights this. If he drops his show he is simply caving to the censorship the FCC is instituting.

    Stern hasn't changed - the standards have. There is an enormous backlash going on right now as a result of Janet Jackson.

    As a father and grandfather I have a lot of heartburn with what Stern puts out over the public airways. As a part time derelict I think he is a hoot.

    Until this stuff starts working its way through the liberal courts grandpa is in charge.

    "It was vulgar, offensive, and insulting..."

    No joke, that's why all the people tune into the station... they've been airing his show for how long... and now they wipe him off the air...??

    Guess the Ad $$$ wasn't comming in like it used to...

    I heard about him possibly giving it up because of all the censorship but didn't know he was banned. Who is Clear Channel's competition? It seems like they run every station.

    Clear Channel only represents about 7 of the cities Stern broadcasts in. He is still on in about 70 others.

    Everytime this happens..

    Howard turns it into a positive. It gets more people listening. I think it is ubsurd. I personally hate the show, because I don't like a lot of the raunchy stuff they do, (I just don't think it's funny). I however know that it has it's place, and I don't like people telling other people what they can and can not do.

    I agree KillerNut. I haven't watched or listened to Stern in a few years because his comedy was getting very stale to me. With all the publicity this is getting he probably picked up more listeners than he lost.

    I too use to listen to the show every day, but it got old for me. I do think that what is happening in this country in general is cause for concern. I hate it when others try to dictate to me what is acceptable and what isn't. Whatever happened to if you don't like something, then turn the station!
