wow, KSFO doesn't get it

Wow, these on air "hate personalities" are out of control.

They get paid to sell hate as entertainment, and then choose to play the free speech victims and mock sincere, rational callers to their special community outreach program?

I don't buy it or get it. I think everyone in this country knows that right wing shock radio has been out of control for years now. These guys are talking themselves out of their own jobs. Sheesh.

It doesn't take a genius to figure out that if you want to spew hate and mockery AND have corporate sponsership of your radio program, at some point one or the other is going to have to give.

Sounds like these guys want more sponsers to pull their ads.

That's fine by me.

  • Very good take on it. I think they're just digging themselves into a bigger hole. Mike Stark was totally calm and professional. So much so that Rogers got more and more enraged and then cut him off.

  • In a way, they remind me of the hyper-aggressive hummingbirds we get around here -- no matter how much food there is in the feeder or how many perches there are, or how badly hurt they're going to get by diving down 100 feet and crashing into each other, they're never willing to avoid a fight.

  • Thanks for lending your voice and support! So far, the CW on this story is that KSFO made a huge PR blunder by broadcasting their Special Program.

    I think it's going to become very, very ugly for KSFO.

  • What's even more ridiculous is that Melanie Morgan organized an attempted advertiser boycott of Farenheit 9/11, so she is (or at least should be) well aware that such things are not censorship, just media activism. Or maybe it's only censorship if it succeeds...
