    So why does Howard feel the need to lie about fucking every aspect of his life?

    Also is his staff told go along with the bullshit or are they too afraid to speak out?

    All the bullshit makes no sense. .. one has to figure that any fan still listening at this point is not going to stop no matter what even if Howard were to come clean.

    Maybe, just maybe Howard isn't lying to his fans maybe he is lying to himself still thinking of himself as an underdog rebel rather than a repulsive greedy, old, rich man that is everything his fans hate

    Denial - when even *you* don't know you're lying, I would guess.

    It's the age old problem of having too much goddamn money for your own good, which brings with it hordes of yes men, and complete delusion of the human mind...

    Howard is bat-shit crazy, pure and simple. He doesn't like the real world so he creates a false one. He surrounds himself with boot lickers, brown noses and ass kissers so no one will call him out on his bullshit. Howard lies to protect himself from reality.

    "I'm the most honest man I know."
    Pathological liar.

    "I'm so heterosexual. The doctor tells me I have more testosterone than anyone he's seen!"
    He's in denial about his own sexual urges.

    "My wife doesn't want to be famous. She has her own money."
    We all know about this one.

    ...and so on.

    It's not just that Wiggy lies, he seems to get some sort of sick satisfaction out of it. It's like he thinks the ability to deceive people is something to be proud of and makes him superior to others. Why else would constantly lie about petty insignificant details and pile lies on top of lies? He doesn't even care that he contradicts himself, lies about things that are easy to disprove, and often tells different versions of stories he told earlier. Almost all of what he says about his pets (their back-stories, medical conditions, etc.) is completely false and contradicted by other reliable sources. He and Beth make a great pair, they're both mentally ill and compulsive liars.

    If he ever gets called on a lie, he'll claim to not remember what he said or that he's evolved. Howard just goes with the old idea that if you repeat a lie often enough people will believe it.

    The pet lies are so over top now. If Beef and Horde set up a real animal shelter and actually worked there they would have real amaaazing experiences. I guess it's easier to stage photos and have viewing time with Consula the maids kittens. Fucking thing sucks!

    But, but Howard is the most honest man in radio! Just like he was going to work 4 days a week with the occasional Friday. He also said he had nothing at stake with the merger. He got 25,000,000.00. I could go on and on.

    Exactly. It's a great thing to adopt a homeless pet (especially a "special needs" case) and many people have done so just for the satisfaction of it without expecting praise, publicity, or a nomination for sainthood. That's not good enough for Howard and Beth because they don't really care about the animals - their true motivation is attention for themselves. That's why they lie and create these elaborate phony dramatic back-stories (abuse, fatal illness/miraculous recovery, disaster survival, etc.) and exploit the animals to get what they really want.
