    MEDICAL LEAVE
    - It's being reported that Artie was put on medical leave 2 weeks before trying to kill himself. I understand Sirius legally not being able to release that he was on medical leave but why has it taken so long for Artie or his family to mention it? Now that you know, how do you feel about it? Is it Sirius's fault that Artie almost died or were they 100% right that he wasn't doing well & needed medical attention?

    It's siruses fault...but not the half that is really XM...they don't count...except for when we are counting towards bonus in which case they DO count.

    either way....it's in no way shape or form the fault of the show host who sat in studio with Artie day in and day out exploiting his very struggle with addiction for laughs on the air.

    The same way it's not Mutt's fault that nobody worth a damn is posting on his site anymore. He didn't do anything...

    it should be multiple choice.

    "Is it Sirius's or HOWARD'S fault that Artie almost died....."

    Did stern go to bat against stern for Artie against Sirius to protect Artie from Artie??
    I guess Sirius had finally had enough of Artie's (37) full physicals.....and finally decided to act...:facepalm:



    Howard Allan Stern booted Artie from the show!
    Artie worked for HOWARD!!!

    It's Artie's fault. He's too bull-headed to treat his problems in a self-preserving or socially acceptable fashion. He's really bought into the macho bullshit he sometimes mocks. He's a big baby and he likes it that way. I love his talent but hate what he often does to himself.

    Edit: Nemo, if HAS is responsible for booting Arthur, does that make him responsible for Artie's subsequent horrible suicide attempt? I'd say not.

    It is Sirius' fault in that they refused to acknowledge/address the issue years prior to the eventual end. They allowed the Howard Stern show to make a mockery of Artie's disease, furthering his descent into abuse. They turned a blind eye to the obvious signs of his addiction and they enabled it by giving him latitude they didn't offer other employees, sleeping on the job, coming in late, missing work, etc.

    Further, I'd like to venture a guess that Artie was using cocaine in the last weeks, to counteract the drowsiness of the dope. The Joe Buck interview was a guy spinning on coke, and his previous suicide attempt was cocaine induced.

    All of this was done in an attempt to generate buzz around the show and to stem the tide of disenfranchised listeners. I will go so far as to hypothesize that Howard was looking forward to the tremendous media exposure his show would have received if Artie died on air, via over dose or heart attack. Howard has a history of exploiting addicts for his professional and personal gain. Examples: Sam Kinison, Joe Walsh, Hank the Angry Drunken Dwarf, the various Bong Hits, and most recently David Arquette.

    Sirius and the Howard Stern Show may not have handed Mr. Lange the knife, but they certainly had a hand in creating the circumstances that put it there.

    EDIT: I think it was something along these lines that got me banned from SFN.

    (Please note that I'm not condoning Howard's blithe laissez-faire behavior towards someone clearly spiralling down -- he SHOULD be ashamed for the way he exploits addicts.)

    Arie worked for Howard.
    If Artie worked for Sirius he would have been forced into a strict real rehab for 6 months or fired years ago!

    Howard allowed Artie to slowly waddle toward the wall.....it was amazing radio and HOWARDTV!


    Who benefited from Artie's sad ending on the Stern show?? Howard Allan Stern!

    Benefited how? The show almost immediately began to suck. If Artie was being paid out of Howard's pocket, then yeah there's a benefit that way, but what do you mean?

    As long as we're on the subject, were the early reports of drinking bleach accurate?
