    Holy shit...confidential email from Sony exec to NBC Universal exec describing a meeting with Simon Cowell where he would like to replace Howard Stern and move the show (AGT) back to L.A. because it would be cheaper. This from an email dated April 14th, 2014. HOLY FUCK!

    They are overpaying him and he doesn't' draw in viewers. Hope he gets fired or he quits before he gets fired.

    "It's just business, Robin. The decision had only to do with geography. And you know, polls have shown that female viewers want to see me in tank tops and board shorts so doing the show in L.A. would make sense. Simon and I get along great and he thanks me for saving the show. You know, it's no big deal FUCKING FFFFFUCK!!! COCKSUCKER FFFUCCK!!!!"

    If that was written by a college graduate, I'll eat my hat. Don't think it's real. I don't doubt that these types of emails exist, just that this one is authentic.

    Wow, and just saw this email on wikileaks:

    DATE: Jan. 12, 2015
    FROM: hstern@sirius.com
    TO: scowell@cowellproductions.com

    America loves me, you scumbag. Kids love me. My wife loves me. Small kittens love me. Do you realize I am doing AGT for a measly $15 million year? I am doing this as favor to NBC and now you're stabbing me in the back.

    I can chuck all this in a second. My radio show is more relevant than ever. Did you see that I had Tom Arnold on last week? Top that, shithead.

    Don't you dare try to take this job from me. I am the Kings of All Media, except maybe for podcasts, which I'm not even sure qualify for media. Screw it, I don't even know what the fuck podcasts are.

    You think anyone will watch that piece of crap AGT without me? Heidi is a freakin' airhead, although I sometimes find myself staring at her long, smooth Aryan legs. Mandel is a hack. And I don't even know the name of that other chick judge. Go back to England, fucker. You are not taking my job. I need to secure my retirement. Did you know I had to take in renters at my Palm Beach house just to make the mortgage?

    P.S. I am not bisexual so don't even hint that we could hookup when we're in Los Angeles for AGT. I know what you are hinting about, but I don't go that way, asshole. Well, at least not without a condom. And I ALWAYS use condoms. So if you're okay with condoms, then maybe.... oh, never mind.

    Sincerely,
    Your Pissed-off pal Howard.
