    Apologies if this article has already been posted.
    Its criticism of Howard is tepid compared to the criticism to be found in the numerous posts by many of the Saloon's much superior posters but it might be the 1st of the mainstream mags to take into consideration the risk Howard Stern is taking by assuming the duties of a tv talent show judge & the damage he might be doing to his credibility among his long time radio show audience:

    Jan Werner slapped Shefield down and made him write a fluff piece. How long before Rolling Stone goes out of business? It's become a piece of shit.

    Great moments in whoring:


    "The Green Hornet is he most fun you'll have at the movies this season. -- Mark S. Allen

    "Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked is the perfect family holiday comedy." - Joel Amos

    "The best summer movie in years. The biggest action movie ever." (Transformers: Dark of the Moon) - Rusty Gatenby

    "If you're looking for a great family film this one's smurfect!" (The Smurfs) - Laura DaSilva


    "At Sirius/XM (Stern) has been at the top of his game, and his show has been stronger than ever." -- Rod Sheffield

    Sure, Miss Thang: "This is Sherlock Holmes joining Scotland Yard. This is Dylan joining Jefferson Starship. This is Elvis deciding to spend the seventies playing Mr. Roper on Three's Company."

    It's in the next paragraph that Sheffield steps back & prepares to suck a little major-league ass no doubt at notorious male whore Jann Wenner's insistence.

    America stooge fame whore ....who wooda thunk it? :sad:

    Near the end of the Artie era, I began to lose patience with Artie's no-shows and nod-outs.
    That the Artie era was the last of the really compelling content of The Howard Stern show is just awful to admit.

    Yeah- maybe you're right. I didn't see it that way in my moment of glee at the prospect of someone pointing out what a sell-out Howard is.
    Then- he's been a sell-out since he originally sold out to Judith Regan, I guess.

    But the article on 3rd read is definitely kinder to Howard than I prefer.

    the author lost any respect i had for him after making this statement. Sterns career could not be in a steeper death spiral at this point in time. He's a complete anathema to what he once was; most critically the fuckign POSTER BOY for censorship, exploitatively & vindictively lazy and defines the term"Sell out." Howard Stern is cashing in on a career by becoming everything he once stood against, the very pillars that put him in the position he is today.

    And that fucking wife... You couldnt find a more talentless hanger-on on the planet if you had unlimited resources & drive and dedicated your entire life to doing so.

    I don't understand why anyone in the media are afraid to bash howcie?
    I wish I could listen to O&A now, atleast they are not afraid of that fucking sellout.

    this has been a major mystery to me ...is it because he has an "in" with the NYPost (or is it Daily News?) or what's the deal?
    TMZ is all hands-off... Kimmell allows Beth to come on and spout her inanities and barely comprehensible Mom Cave promos... no stand-up comedian will lampoon his foolishess.
    Is this some kind Jewish-Mafia "you wash my ass, I'll wash yours" conspiracy going on?
    Or is it all out of a misguided sense of pity?
