    Are they still somewhat free to speak their minds? Or has Howard/Booey muzzled them?

    No. Howard has completely put the clampdown on any insider talk. How ironic. The man who hated censorship now censores himself.

    Yeah it definitely has changed.
    Robin is off limits. Howard can't be named douche of the week. They dump calls now as well

    Right after the XMas party Will, Jason, and Leiberman made a big deal on BOR about an unknown guy who was passed out drunk on the floor of the men's room. They noticed he was wearing a wedding ring and they had a close-up photo of his face and promised to do a big investigation into who he was and announce the results. Since then nothing has been mentioned and it's a good bet they were told to back off, so I called in to BOR yesterday early in the show and asked what happened to the investigation just to see what they said. The female intern told me to stay on hold while she put up my question, then came back on the line a few minutes later and said "they" said they already have enough topics for today so I'd have to call back another time. Granted it wasn't that interesting of a topic but I'm sure they didn't want to admit they'd been muzzled and censored either.

    Ohhhhhh yeah.

    Wonder who that was. Ever since that episode of BOR the show seems much more regimented. Like they have to follow a set list of topics(approved by mgmt)they are constantly telling callers 'hurry up' and 'quickly' like they have something to move on to.

    When the show first started it was much more laid back, just will and jason talking about what's on their minds.

    New format sucks.
