    Yahoo.com is still vulnerable to the HeartBleed virus. Not clicking.

    Much ado about nothing, in my opinion. :coffee:

    Howard Stern was just being Howard Stern when he booked accused Jewish center shooter Frazier Glenn Miller on his show a few years ago. And therein lies a cautionary tale, for clowns and serious news organizations alike.

    Part of Stern’s shtick has long included bringing on freaks, for wont of a better term, in order to goof on them, whether that was Miller – a guest in 2010 – or frequent guest Daniel Carver (a Ku Klux Klan member known for saying, “Wake up, white people!”). In theory, it’s all good fun, a way to treat Stern’s radio audience to out-there voices.
    Yet the problem with booking people who hold such views is that they are, by their nature, unpredictable. And if they do something terrible – or even just embarrassing – you are linked to them in perpetuity.

    To be clear, this doesn’t mean you are responsible for them, and certainly not for their actions. But by giving them a forum, you have associated yourself with them – even if it’s as a source of comedy, or an object of derision. (According to the Daily Beast, Miller was happy enough with the Stern bit to link to it on his Website.)

    This obviously goes well beyond Howard Stern. Cable news and talkradio have untold hours to fill, and the screening system for who gets on the air is hardly ironclad. Moreover, the talk programs on both Fox News and MSNBC relish bringing on partisan voices that don’t agree with them, often the more strident, the better.
    Small wonder, then, that Miller’s media exposure went beyond Stern to, according to press accounts, Alan Colmes’ radio show and Sacha Baron Cohen’s movie “Bruno” – despite the fact it appears crystal clear that Miller saw the threat from Jews as very, very real.

    Stern’s fans will no doubt dismiss the idea that he “associated himself” with Miller, and it’s easy to argue that the host merely exposes the absurdity of extreme views by bringing such people on to ridicule them — assuming that any sane person, particularly one familiar with the show, gets the joke.

    Fair enough. But before this story completely fades, here’s a question every booking producer should ask themselves:
    When the next Frazier Glenn Miller, or some other ideological extremist, acts out in horrible fashion and journalists begin Googling them for whatever information they can find, do you really want the first clip that comes up to be one of yours?

    Anything that paints Howard in a bad light and will also ruin his trip to LA sounds fucking great to me. Karma is coming Wiggy and the tapes team can't erase this one!

    That's a horribly honest picture of Howard in that article. Usually when he's written about in these rags they use one of those one-in-a-million shots where he looks vaguely human, presumably provided by his agent.

    Nah, being publicly goofed on by Jews on radio, tv, and in movies for laughs couldn't possibly make the old racist want to take a couple with him on his way out.

    I just posted an not so nice comment. He is a racist all the way. I don't care how evolved he thinks he is. I wish someone would ask Oprah what she thinks of his "Oprah Winfrey, black woman from the south" routine.

    This is one issue I side with the Wig on. He can have any klan member he wants on. I do enjoy him getting bad publicity though.
