    ...i noticed 2 howard stern mentions in gossip rags in as many days. first the bullshit billy joel story that he did heroin and today a mention on radar and a tmz link to "too fab" to read the story about the james franco lindsay lohan big reveal on thss today. nobody g.a.s. about either story so these are paid for and planted. so whats the end game? star of agt? i dont understand why hes trying to be somebody thru social media now. hes not going anywhere on television unless hes going to do a kitty cat show on the hallmark channel with beth and of course beth will do costume changes. :dontknow:

    those types of stories are common in rags like that, hes good at getting those soundbites out of guests.. . however, im sure Howard has paid for press before (esp. when he first moved to Sirius) but I dont think these were one of those times, James Franco is constantly in the press

    Team Buckwald sends audio files of the interviews to all the media outlets friendly to Howard. It is quid pro quo. They get content first and Howard get publicity. He isn't the only one who does it.

    When you see those, look for the comments sections.

    Bring the public aware of the facts concerning Wiggy.

    Make intelligent comments backed up with facts or links about the over spending on multiple mansions, re-decorating $10 million bathrooms, planting photo ops & stories for his wife, dishonest charities, the 3-day 3-hour work ethic, the same boring interview style, the loss of millions of listeners, plastic surgeries, $10,000 Varvatos outfits, private airplanes, limos, bodyguards, etc -- all the things the average person cannot identify with.

    The tide will turn.

    TMZ = fellow tribesman Harvey Levin who yields to all Stern requests, like not following up on the Artie suicide attempt or Robin's cancer situation

    Radar Online = Mike Walker the long bribed Stern flunkie

    Never used to do that because he actually had listeners. Now that ain't the case.

    Stern has a huge following in media/entertainment.....wink-wink.
    Most grew up with him during the glory days of FM Howard. Most want to please him.
    And Howard has rewarded them with plugs overtly and covertly on the air. The Stern birthday show was jammed packed with nobodies to us that write amazing things about him.


    Howard now does his show exclusively for them and not the peasants in their cars on the way to work. And they reward the wigged fraud by giving him amazing press. Billy Joel 'heroin' and James Franco 'Lohan' stuff have generated over 100 stories online. The Jonah Hill 'Wolf of Wall Street' story went on for a month and generated 1000 fucking stories!!!


    Howard stole the Jon Stewart playbook. Stewart has 1.5 million viewers but the media love him and write about him like he has 10 million viewers!! This drove Stern crazy 10 years ago. He and Artie had a few on air conversations about this Stewart media love.


    BTW I'm sure team stern leaks stuff about other people to the TMZ's and Radar to get some amazing press too.





    PPPPPS:
    The one thing Howard can't buy or barter is an amazing Q-Rating.....see AGT
    :lol:
