Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

Howard Stern Censored Again

Newsmax is reporting that Sirius Satellite Radio is going to draw up an internal document that will set censorship guidelines for Stern is his new radio show. I thought this was an interesting move since Stern moved to Sirius for the sole purpose of being able to do what he wanted without fear of censorship by radio stations or the FCC (and the 5-year $500 million contract probably played a role in his decision as well).
I guess he will just have to take his $500 million and make his own satellite radio company to promote his show the way he wants.
I personally think the government had no business regulating him to start with. Its not like people don't know how Howard Stern is. If he wants to be like that and people want to listen, more power to them.

    Stern's situation reminds me of the old saw about the bank. "If you owe the bank $1000 dollars, the bank owns you; if you owe the bank a million dollars, you own the bank."

    Stern will probably do what he d*** well pleases. Besides, he was funnier when he was a frustrated married guy. I'm perfectly happy with my XM.

    XM is glorious.

    Opie & Anothony on XM 202 is much better than Stern.

    Hoa, Hoa.. Tell em Fred!

    JY, agreed unless they can get their money back. They may find their investment in Stern to be a bad one anyway.
    This would give them an avenue out of it.
    Perhaps that is their plan.
    We all know what a great financial position the company is in.
