I'll second that.


I get the impression George pretty much brought it on himself--especially with his whole attitude of being "above" the show. The time him and Gary got into it is a perfect example of that. Penny I actually feel sorry for.

Shuli should be sweating.
Maybe Penny was as annoying and difficult behind the scenes as they made her appear to be on the air and thus wrote her own ticket out the door.

This may have been stated earlier but I seriously doubt Howard actually did the firing.

IMHO this is a slow removal of the news team, Sirius is in the business to keep and gain subscribers, the news team does neither.

Ok well George Flowers is a fossil from an ancient era of our culture. I'm sure he struggled mightily to relate to the Stern crew. Penny Crone is an old, whiny, washed up, talentless, Chicken Little ex-Faux News reporter. What do u expect? All they do is pump out nutjobs. The last straw for me was Penny downstairs crying like the world was going to end when they had that gas leak. Amazing what her years at Faux have done to her tiny brain.

Also, George's wife is black which made him a little overly sensitive to that issue...

As for Penny, it wasn't so much that she went down crying about the gas leak, but that she chain-smoked while she was down there worrying about THE GAS LEAK!

I don't mind the news in the current format, especially on the weekends. it's gives a little something new every now and then.

Shalom, beyotchs

Howard's non Christmas list just got two people shorter. I've heard of cutting costs by shaving pennies....or is it shaving costs by cutting Penny?

Somewhere in a high rise two bedroom apartment in Manhattan there is a Lobster Harmonica that sits silent.

I'll miss Penny. She was good for a laugh or two with her tantrums.

Ehh, no problem. It is just one of the benefits of incorporation that we business accounting majors learn about. They can pay for "stuff" with cash, trade out some of their equity in lieu of cash, or issue stock for cash.

Has this been confirmed by a source that does not get it's news from Chaunce Hayden? We know that some folks have been feeding Chaunce false news hoping he will spread it.

Penny's tantrums were funny the first few times. After that I could smell them coming. I like the News. It's pure satire. A real sounding radio news service all about Howard done with good production value? It's hilarious.
