I liked what someone wrote on youtube, that line about not knowing that Gino Vannelli was on the Stern show.

Now THAT was funny.

One last thing. Freedom of speech does not only apply to the FCC and shit like that. As long as something isn't slander, it's protected. This being said, if O&A remarks about Stern's daughter were false, then the gag order is legit. If it was true, then the remark is protected by free speech.
Well, obviously Mel had to think there was significant risk for Infinity to issue the gag. Whether that had anything to do with loyalty to Stern or just the liability of the station, we'll never know. One thing is for sure, Howard must hold more power than anyone ever believed if it was true and he was able to keep it out of the press. All accounts I have heard is the press thought it wasn't a story and O&A were FOS. One thing is for sure, they faked the "interview" with the "hospital security guard". No guard who wished to hold a job would betray the trust of a patient like that.

As far as the free speech thing is concerned, as broadcasters, O&A's comments are protected from governement censure. They weren't protected from their own company telling them they can't say it or firing them because they did say it. The 1st Amendment clause that provides for free speech says only that the government shall not interfere with the free exercise thereof. Private individuals and corporations can do whatever they want on their property and/or to their employees. There is no hypocrisy between what Howard/Infinity did to O&A and what he railed against the FCC for.

The comments by the O&A fans are priceless, like it being some parrell universe. They can't be all that shocked that these two shitheads adore him. And I love the people that say he is talented but the other one isn't....ANd if he is talented, may God have mercy on our souls! He does "Beavis and Butthead". I could do that two when I was 13! The Gino Vannelli comment is great!

Tailgating? Leno? Is the spot above his surfboard chin open? I have something I'd like to park there...that is if Mr. Seinfeld is done using it.

You have made a common mistake in logic. When someone asserts something as a fact (e.g., "Emily Stern OD'ed at a radio show's holiday performance"), it is that person's responsibility to prove it. It is not the responsibility of a non-believer to prove that it did not happen as he did not make the initial claim. It is illogical to believe that because something was not proven to not exist, then it does exist.

Both Opie and Anthony admit that they were really big fans of Stern. They also never deny that much of radio would probably not be the way it is today if not for Stern.

no one can deny that. like him or hate him he did pave the way for hot talkers radio the way it is today just as black sabbath did for heavy metal (although they don't claim that every metal band is ripping them off).
