    The Howard Stern Show: All about honesty. :rolleye: We only listen for hours a day, months at time, years on end, pay ridiculous fees, listen to stupid commercials and fake callers. Then a major star of the show has a serious health issue of this magnitude and you don't want to clue your "fans" in?? What loyalty does this command? Only the most inconsequential fan would remain "loyal" at this point.

    I know. Nothing that hasn't been said before. :) just fed up.

    and. Not only isn't it about honesty, it's about an inherent LACK of honesty.

    If they only had a news team, we might learn what is happening at the show.

    The poor news team must feel neutered.

    It's why they're reduced to covering "who doesn't like who" in the back office and stuff like that. Everything is off limits.

    I would LOVE to see the memos and emails that have transpired over the years telling the news team what they will NOT be covering.

    Steve Langford's last story was on Artie Lange's return from exile, ending with two questioning words: "Now what?!?".

    Next thing you know he's fucking gone.

    It's so frustrating that there is a great radio show in there somewhere, but Howard's complete white-knuckle, screaming terror at anything resembling getting anywhere close to truth and reality prevents it.

    He's not exhausted from his schedule................he's exhausted from all the hiding, pretending, and censoring. I would be, too.

    The only thing I've learned about Howard in e grand Sirius experiment is that he's never been honest and has always been greedy and power hungry. It's nice to watch it all fall apart.

    Pretty fucking sad, but nothing that hasn't been covered by us a million times.

    Wack packer has a slight medical issue = H100 News doing around the clock coverage
    Robin or any other of the insiders having a health issue = lockdown

    And OK, everything doesn't have to open to public scrutiny, ie a major health issue, but don't go around talking about how fucking honest you are and how your show is all about honesty. Just say, hey it's a SHOW. What? You expect reality?? But he keeps towing the line, I'm all about being honest.

    That's the thing....his whole "mission statment" is based on him thinking he is unique as an entertainer because of his self-proclaimed honesty. He thinks his success is because he talked about real and honest subjects with his listeners. Pushing the boundaries of terrestrial radio was great entertainment, but just because you talk abut poop, farts and sex doesn't make you anymore honest then the next guy. When he started making his money that became very clear.

    howard has always lived by the motto, don't believe your eyes, believe my words.

    If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth. // If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. // If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it. // If you repeat a lie long enough, it becomes truth. // If you repeat a lie many times, people are bound to start believing it. howard stern. oops i meant joseph Goebbels.

    The Howard Stern show in it's current form is no more than a promotional vehicle for Howard and his wife's future projects . . .

    I don't understand why Howard is satisfied with this though. He once enjoyed performing, writing, being good at what he did, being number 1. Why would you settle for being a walking commercial for the product of the day?
