    The article is about a year old and if possible the show has gotten even worse since he wrote it.

    When you look at the glory years of the 90's, it's hard to believe what the Howard Stern Show has become.

    Thanks Chibbs. An EXTREMELY well-written article.

    My favorites:

    "It’s painfully obvious that she is nothing more than a soulless money-siphoning machine and terminal fame junkie."

    "Remember all the initial talk of how Beth—who was in the midst of a failing showbiz career during her miraculous love connection with an elderly scarecrow—“didn’t even want to be famous”? Right. Now after a book, a TV show, dozens of TV talk show appearances, and hundreds of irritating and pointless sightings on every red carpet premiere under the sun you can tell this is a girl who clearly shrinks from the spotlight. She’s a regular Emily Dickinson."

    It's impossible that it hasn't gotten worse.

    "The year following the Artie Era was the most neutered radio of Stern’s career, and the only real laugh I remember having the entire time was when Stern feigned retirement in order to prod a co-worker into hysterics—which it promptly did. But have no fear, Stern assured, twas only a joke. He had in fact signed up for five more glorious years."

    Jeebus Fucking Christ on a termite infested cross.....this guy actually bought into that horseshit? And thought it was funny? Doesn't he know that abomination has been voted the worst fake bit in the history of history?

    Much as he might be correct on everything else he wrote....I had to stop reading at this point.

    Extremely dumbfounded.....

    Ha, got you to crawl out from under your rock.

    I accept your apology.

    You probably thought the Sal crying over Howard quitting was real too didn't you?

    Well, at least you're not alone with at least 3 assholes on the planet with room temperature IQs thinking it was real. You, this guy, and Bobo.

    Sal slept in the city the night before and was hungover which is why he was late.

    I don't think any of them are good enough actors to pull off fake tears

    IMO his fade was gradual but the tipping point of the positive energy fulcrum was thinking he was teflon shitting all over Jay Leno's show with the two dikes. Infuriated Jay spoke softly but the big stick he wielded was to snatch away one of Stern's best and cheapest sources of the comedy that Jackie's fingercots inserted into SJ's fearless mouth. It was all downhill from there, especially when he wouldn't dip into his own pocket to subsidize the difference between what the guy who put funny in his mouth thought was fair vs what KROQ was offering... also refusing to cut him in for some of the EShow residuals. and as a result who took the funny with him when he walked.
