    I'm not making this up. Jon Hein who has vaulted to new levels of asskissery in the last few years hit a new low. He cannot, I repeat cannot, one more time, CANNOT, go without kissing Howard's ass for every second of the HS Wrap Up Show.

    Here is what he just said and I will try to quote it as best I can.

    Jon Hein, "You also feel for Howard because he has been working so hard for so long. The guy takes his vacation and then goes to work on a television show, and sooner or later you got take a breath."

    Seriously? Howard works hard? Millions of dollars for AGT and he has to work 4 weeks a year. Near hundreds of millions of dollars a year for a radio show that does around 100 shows a year, or 2.3 per week. Yet, Hein has the balls to talk about Howard's work ethic in 2015. The term JUMP THE SHARK should be banned because it's "creator" no longer knows what it means.

    I have a brother who worked over 20 years for a guy he despised, but who got ahead kissing his ass shamelessly. Hein, deep down, must hate Howard.

    I thought it was established that someone else came up with, at the very least, the term that made Hein all that money.

    That's like saying you should still be a big fan of Alex Rodriguez because he's so honest and sincere.

    Even with AGT, he has more days off than he has on.

    A few weeks ago when Jillian barbaric was the WUS she kept saying "Howard does a FIVE hour show everyday. Maybe I can't read a clock but it seems like 4 hours, 2-3 days a week.

    You are correct. The story goes that Jon was at University of Michigan and he and his roommates came up with the term. It is well documented that it was Jon's friend who actually came up with the term. Years later Jon used it for his website and I highly doubt he shared any of the profits with his former roommates.

    Yeah, he's a douche, but to some extent, you have to chalk this drivel up to little more than John Hein's self preservation instinct. Folks in that shithole are dropping like flies. I'm sure he wants to ride this gravy train for all its worth. If that means sacrificing his intellectual honesty and personal credibility, then so be it.

    Let's do the math. He works 112 days for the show. He probably works 30-40 days for AGT. That is about 142-152 days of work a year. Kids in K-12 don't have that much vacation time.

    BTW, let's just assume this myth that Howard and Jon are selling was true and Howard works too much, who's fault is that? No one is forcing Howard to do AGT.

    Also, who does Howard think he is talking to when he complains that AGT hurts his preparation to the show? Most of his fans hate that he is doing AGT. It only makes them more upset that he is sacrificing the show for AGT.

    Howard had a great work ethic 20 years ago! hell it cost him his marriage in my opinion, but the Howard of today is one lazy rich bastard!

    Maybe he meant to say Howard hardly works.
