Are they censoring the word "Fagot" out of old replays now?

    Listening to the 11/23/08 show and at one point Fred plays the Iron Sheik clip saying "Fucking faggot" but the word "faggot" is censored out.

    I know they are PC now but are they tempering with old shows now too?

    Yes they are censoring everything. Howard can't have any bumps in the road while he is working hard for his new image. Yoko BethO would not have it any other way.

    I just looked at my archives of the show and sure enough the word "fagot" is still there and that's not all. In the original show, Artie also says "you are gay and faggot" but it got taken out of the replay today.


    "Robin read a story about the FCC and the TV networks fight over fleeting use of expletives. Right now the networks are subject to $300,000 fines. Now they're in court fighting about it. The Supreme Court is going to be hearing the case now. That led to Fred playing Iron Sheik ''You are gay and faggot'' audio clips. Howard said that all he knows is that he's out of that game."

    Not surprise at the extent to which Stern is whitewashing history.

    I guess this answers our question on how the hell are so many employed there when Stern is on at most 3 times a week and sometimes no more than 4 times a month.

    Just think about the work it must take to go back and edit out the word faggot from past Stern shows.


    BTW, can someone post the clip where Doug announces that he's engaged and Howard calls him a faggot for doing so. It was sometime during the sirius era

    We need to see if this is an isolated incident. It is crazy how much freedom they had on terrestrial radio compared to now.

    Dawg Saloon is like the book people from 1984... the group that each memorized a classic novel to one day transcribe in a saner time.

    I don't know about the radio replays, but I can tell you that they have HEAVILY censored the HTV shows since day one.

    Any and ALL politically incorrect subjects do not make the cut. This means that about 95% of the shows are 15 to 20 minutes long.

    I won't even mention that after 20 years of tapes....they just keep recycling the same old shows.

    It's bad enough we don't get any live shows with good comedy bits, or any fun guests, now the funny segments from old shows get censored? Stern really is giving a big FU to his dwindling loyal listeners:coffee:

    Based on this Howard Stern precedent the publishers of the new editions of Tom Sawyer and Huckelberry Finn have decided that the the frequent use of the term "Reggie" in each novel will be replaced with "fine upstanding African-American male". It is believed that first time readers of these Mark Twain American classics will be better off than previous 10,000,000+ readers these past 5 generations.

    What's much worse is that someone noticed he also censors out insults to celebrities he's now "friends" with

    its such a joke. I seriously doubt his newfound respect for the lgbt community. He never actually apologized for what he said (just pretends he never did it and that he was never a bigoted piece of shit) and he mocked trans people awhile ago
