    A caller that pranked MSNBC during coverage of the air crash this weekend was mentioned in 73 news stories since then, not bad for an "irrelevant" performer. I'm not sure Howard appreciated the attention for that he's been trying to keep a more mainstream image and pranks during a tragedy may not be to his liking.

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2014/07/17/malaysian-airline-ukraine-prank/12808083/

    MSNBC got an "exclusive" prank Thursday when a caller claiming to be a U.S. soldier said he saw the Malaysian airliner shot down by "a blast of wind from Howard Stern's ass."

    The caller was being interviewed by Krystal Ball, host of The Cycle. He identified himself as "Staff Sgt. Michael Boyd" from the "U.S. Embassy in Ukraine."

    "Well, I was looking out the window, and I saw a projectile flying through the sky, and it would appear that the plane was shot down by a blast of wind from Howard Stern's ass," the caller told Ball.

    When she pressed him for more details about the possible missile system, he replied, "Well, you're a dumbass, aren't you?"

    The caller was then apparently cut off, and Ball cut to a commercial break.

    When she returned, Ball told viewers, "We thought we had an eyewitness on the scene. That individual was not actually an eyewitness."

    Some news accounts say the caller was a Stern "fan," but so far there's no proof. Neither he nor the shock jock (an America's Got Talent judge) has commented.

    Pretty sure that would have gotten the same amount of press mentions regardless of the celebrity mentioned.

    Anyone who doesn't think Captain Janks, formerly imprisoned serial scammer isn't tied at the hip to Howard Stern - just Google the 2 names with "prank calls" There might even be some youtube still kicking around of Stern repeatedly replaying Jack's calls with a sense of merriment.

    But then again, how less sensitive is that compared to Howard in 1982 calling Air Florida after a crash killed 74 people to inquire what the one way fare would be from the airport to the site of the14th Street Bridge crash?

    Janks could have said the blast of air came from stern68's ass, and it would get the same amount of mentions (actually probably even more). This is irrelevant, much like Stern.

    You think Sirius will fire Howard for this? After all they love to police things that happen off their airwaves and this absolutely had "violence attached" to the story. Fucking hypocritical scumbags.


    Oh and Stern68 eat my monthly discharge.

    Making fun of the death of 290 people is going to go over well with the AGT crowd. America's judge is serving up the funny!

    Too bad Stern isn't entitled to a bonus based on press mentions for a prank call. Howard can talk about this, as well as Benjy's antics, to fill time tomorrow before an amazing segment with Zach Braff

    I think you're giving the show too much credit.

    and at least the bridge joke was funny

    I love when celebrities claim to be big fans of the show, and you just know they are not. For instance take the above tweet.... anyone who listens knows Beet is no longer a part of the show and hasn't been for ages. In fact i would bet at some point during the interview Zach Braff says, "Oh man Howard, i watch you all the time! I love the show!"
