    Don't get me wrong... I love a good Stern bashing story as much as the next guy... But when there's a handful of stories written in a row like this with the same feel and common theme, can't it come off as a vendetta? I mean... Couldn't it lessen the impact of the individual stories because as a group it's just noise?

    No vendetta, I'm in the news business, the goal is to get stuff posted ASAP generally speaking. Snider's comments came Wednesday, Grillo's came Thursday, didn't want to wait weeks to report on them as they would be stale by then.

    I had assumed you went to each of them for comments on the topic and then built each into their own story (because there was enough there for it). Is that not accurate, I guess?

    Nope, they were not exclusive to me, both publicly posted on podcast one & periscope, I just wrote down what they said and fleshed out the rest with background.

    Good for Grillo. They seem to be coming out of the woodwork, don't they? Yea!

    I can see a good in depth article about the behind the scenes machinations of the HSS appearing in some magazine somewhere and not to far in the future either. I don't think there is the fan base left to support the cost of a book though.

    Thanks -- I'm really more focused on the writing, moreso than the content, so if readers enjoy it I feel I'm doing my job.

    Very well written, and does a great job of illustrating Howard as the giant ass-sucking douchebag he is.

    And someone needs to answer his question "if I suck why do you still listen?"

    We don't, fuckhead. Eat a dick.

    Good job! However, who knew that Grillo could afford a ticket to Comic-Con?

    Nice! I have really enjoyed the Radar Online stuff but what is funny is that the articles probably help Howard continue his new brand image. Howard might be upset to get criticized, but ultimately, the articles help promote the new PC and celebrity-friendly Stern image.

    I would love for you to write an article that would sting a little bit more. People have poked fun at Howard's hair, but I don't think a site has ever ran an article about it. People on this site can point you to the popular "smoking gun" images. And the angle I would love to see is if you approach hair professionals/doctors about their professional opinions re Howard's hair. You would just be presenting their professional opinion to the public.

    I would recommend these two guys as a starting point:

    1)
    Kobren has an open $50,000 bet that he accepted from Howard for Kobren to come into the studio to test if Howard's hair is real. Howard has gone radio silent since offering the $50k bet. Kobren even offered to donate the money to charity.

    2) https://twitter.com/DrAlanBauman This guy actually appeared on the show and questioned Howard's hair. I'm sure he wouldn't mind sharing his opinion in an article.

    Great work from radar online!!
