    Sorry if someone else posted this. So Craig Gass did a Periscope responding to the article that said he was banned. He said he wasn't, but the last two times he asked to come on Gary said the show has changed and they don't have Gilbert on and that they have to say "No for now". So it looks he hasn't been banned. They just aren't going to have him on the show anymore.

    Apparently, it is a big difference. See if Gass was banned, he would get the hint that he will never be back on. Him not being banned means that he is delusional to think there is a possibility that they will have him on again because Gary was too polite to him to say that there is no chance he will ever be back on.

    Yes.

    Gary is polite and professional.

    I believe Gass answered honestly while being mindful not to burn any bridges or devalue himself.

    wow , so basically gary admits the show is PC and cleaned up, i would almost think booey is the fucking leak because he cant keep his fat monkey trap shut but i think hes too afraid of his cush job vanishing. i would guess its fat disgusting jason or sal because they are prob the last 2 old school fans on staff who seem to hate whats going on with the show

    ps-
    jason i know you can see this
    you are a fat disgusting homosexual

    Howard wants to fit in with the 'A' list crowd so bad he has abandoned his history. The show sucks balls since arti tried to off himself and i now fear that even the funny shit from 1990-2009 will not be replayed in the months to come.

    Staffers won't spill. It's their jobs on the line.


    They all have friends and family though. And they talk about work...a lot.

    Jason hasn't been exactly subtle about his thoughts, on BOR he alluded that howard got MANY votes for "douche of the week" and made a few veiled comments acknowledging his docuheness he has also had on-air confrontations with gary where he called him out as being lazy. i can see him blabbing to someone drunk or high. sal will say anything to get attention, he is no so dumb as hes made out to be but i could easily see him getting riled up and carried away

    So, we won't get to hear an entire show of Howard with Al Pacino's Baby?

    It's a great idea to take comedy out of the show. Maybe they can talk about kittens more.

    Let's be frank here
    It is just a more politically correct / gentler way of saying you're banned

    It sorta like when you go on a job interview and they tell you that they just aren't hiring right now, but they will keep your resume on file. Or when you tell a woman you have no intention to ever interact with ever again that you will give her a call.

    Oh it changed all right - from a funny entertaining show to a horrible boring one. Is that what they were going for?

    True.

    However the subject is clear to them. Gass and Gilbert have more options. Being blacklisted by Howard is not something staff members can recover from.

    Will they risk their employment at this stage of their lives with bills to pay and families to support? The mere fact this is just now getting legs is due to the genuine fear they have. This comparison to Scientology is not for dramatic effect. It's an accurate comparison.

    Dianetics commercials would run on TV and many thought it was just an self help book. Now we know. In time people will learn all about this "GTD" nonsense as well.

    As with all people they talk about work. Spouses retell the stories to their friends. People complain within earshot of mere acquaintances.

    Timing is everything. TMZ type shows pay more for video and audio when a topic is hot.

    It pretty much doesn't matter anyway, Stern will be gone in a few months anyway. Hell, Serious might cut him off a few days before December so that he doesn't bad mouth them or promotes his other projects.

    The key phrase is "the show has changed..."

    It's not the same as banning because that would mean the show is still irreverent - but Gass did something that excludes his as a guest. Craig did nothing that we know of - but Craig Gass was never controversial - so why exclude him? There must have been something said, somewhere that makes him controversial in the eyes of the new HSS.

    And Gary didn't say Howard has changed - he said the show has changed. So Marci and Howard consciously created a plan to make the show more PC - probably to launch Howard as an interview show - not a comedy show. There is no more comedy on the HSS.
    So this wasn't just an evolution of the show - it was a plan.
    BTW - based in the above I predict Jason is the next to be around.

    Sal and Richard probably more likely............BUT I haven't listened in months so I'm probably totally wrong.

    I don't care if the show became PC and cleaned up, just be funny and relevant.
