    Back in the day the Howard stern brand meant being one with the common man, pusing the edge of the entertainment envelope, being someone that suffered through the work morning with you, a man, a rebel...

    Nowadays, not so much... His brand has become the epitome of a sellout, of a ripoff artist, the embodiment of lazy and greediness and disillusionment.

    Did I miss anything?

    He is now the establishment that he railed against. Wiggy's big problem is there are people who do that kind of PC entertainment much better, and more frequently than he does.

    Well you would say that... you'd have to.
    It is of course the painful truth.
    But... does Howard know this yet?

    He's Imus on crack. And in his defense, at least Imus and Dee-derr try to give the appearance that they are philanthropic. Howard doesn't do anything that won't benefit Howard in some form or fashion.

    And now I just farted.....

    A lot of people bought into him being treated unfairly, censored, and forced to go to a new medium for freedom. The problem is that he could only succeed in a climate of repression and of being down trodden. Once the 'restrictions' were removed, a basically tired old sellout emerged. Like an online troll, he could only be funny as the hunted subversive that 'people were out to get'.

    Freedom was the worst thing that could have happened to his career. That's why so much of his old radio seems flat and stale now (to me, anyway).

    I once worked at a snowcone stand. The owner told me to have as many free ones as I wanted. After a day or two of gorging on them, I didn't have another one all summer.

    That's his brand now, a free snowcone nobody wants anymore.

    He is a rich and greedy millionaire that lives a sheltered life and can't fend for himself for more than a few days. He cares about no one but himself and exploits people that are poorer than him, people that have mental and physical deficiencies. He uses people , their talents, their ideas, for almost no cost to him. He has no sense of ever being wrong and does things only because he thinks he should be doing them. Hypocrite and liar that thinks eating animals is cruel, yet eats fish. He can't associate with anyone or relate because the only people that he might be able to tolerate are people just like him.

    Howard has taken over the attention whore couple spot from Zsa Zsa and her fake Prince husband.

    [​IMG]


    Like Howard, Zsa Zsa once had a level of popularity and then married a media whore with fake credentials, then spent years struggling to remain in the media spotlight and stay relevant. At what point does Beth jump ship? As she gets older and her bio clock and looks hit the wall, she will need to flee with cash and find a new sugar daddy once Howard retires from the spot light.
