    This is the guy who waited until the semifinals to mention Tom Cotter was repped by Buchwald and there was a conflict of interest at #AGT

    Nothing wrong with having ZZ Top or Black Sabbath on the show. The worst was the girl from The new version of "I spit on your Grave" Howard talked about that girl for a week before she was on the show.

    Someone found out she had the same agent as Howard. That was really lame that he never mentioned he was doing his agent a favor by promoting this girl.

    Are you at all aware of the concept of radio and television "talk and interview" programs? They were created to allow people to promote their endeavors, books, products, movies etc. Maybe you haven't heard or seen "product placement" where items are used within a show or movie and advertisers pay for the privilege on being seen on screen.

    The world you live in exists to sell you things, at every opportunity---when you watch the hockey playoff's tonight, notice those words on the boards, or the "brought to you by" bumpers and the "Allstate Play of the Game"

    Something Imus never did, unless you count his wife's bullshit. See: interviews where Imus lost advertisers because he said their product sucked, guests he told their book sucked. :coffee: Hell, even Norm was honest about the Mangrate.

    ZZ Top and Black Sabbath got free advertising for their appearance.
    The wig is now paying for big name guests.

    How disgusting was it when Robin was talking about Ozzy during the news and Howard interjected a Black Sabbath commercial then went back to Robin's story.

    Uh, okay. But in radio--and maybe rules are different in the satellite world, I don't know-- what the OP is talking about is called "Payola", and its supposed to be the most unethical thing in broadcasting. I don't know why or care, but that's the perception. And Howigfag is the one who has built a career on "honesty", at least according to him.

    That actually reminds me of a story Jay Thomas told, he said that when he was a DJ the industry got rid of doing payola (this was in the early 80's or so, around the time of Mork and Mindy and before Cheers). But anyway, he said that when he was a DJ and a station manager in Florida (including hiring the Greaseman), he would eat for free because he just plugged every restaurant in town. Then one day it came down from the owner that payola wasn't kosher anymore, and apparently it was a nationwide trend because advertisers realized a 30 second Wendy's spot was worthless if the DJ talked up the local diner for half an hour because he ate for free. I think it's only guys like Rush, Howard, Hannity, etc. that can get by with it.

    I heard an old show recently (he was just about to go to sirius) and he was going on about that late night show he "could have gotten"
    But when he watched Joan Rivers interview someone he thought she asked stupid fluff questions and didnt grill the guy at all
    But Howard never calls out his guests, even the total idiots. Shouldnt he be grilling Jenna McCarthy about all the kids that have died because of her pseudoscience bs?

    Right the original deal behind Payola was record labels paying for their songs to be played.. obviously this is not terrestrial radio and he has no obligation to reveal what's going on, but the dude built his career on brutal honesty. Which I guess is why the new Howard has an army of bereaved listeners tearing into him 24 / 7.

    Sarah Butler...she did the show October 11,2010. Howard only promoted her because she was a Buchwald client. Must not have worked, because I haven't heard her name since.
