    Opie and Anthony Suspended for 30 days

    What a sad, sad world we're living in.. Don't get me wrong, I know theres much, much, MUCH bigger problems in the world than 2 guys getting suspended from the radio... but, I think stories like this are going to get much worse. Soon, we'll be listening to pre-programmed propaganda on the radio. (then again, with CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, etc we already have that on TV so why not radio...)

    Maybe they need to go back and re-design radios with dials instead of buttons.. maybe thats the problem - people want to change the dial and can't find it.

    Re: Opie and Anthony Suspended for 30 days

    I subscribe to XM and really enjoy it. However after this I must reconsider renewing my subscription.

    I have to politely disagree with hls811, we are fighting a war right now supposedly to spread Democracy and freedoms (such as freedom of speech), many people and organizations are speaking out trying to bring more attention to the atrocities in the Sudan and Dafur in effect giving a voice to the millions of people who are suffering right and cannot speak for themselves. Jokes are getting people suspended and fired, however *politcial actionsand/or inaction that cause the death of hundreds (in some cases thousands) and damages in the tens of Billions of dollars go unpunished.

    This time frame of hyper-sensitivity has gone too far. This is the thinking that incites conflicts, spreads fear and encourages governments to trample upon individual rights of people.

    One of this countries greatest strengths was our ability to speak on any issue, and joke with eachother and laugh at ourselves. George Carlin, Chris Rock, Richard Pryor, Lenny Bruce, Bill Maher, Jon Stewart etc. We all connect thru humor. We all understood and respected eachother thru humor.


    *Political actions or inactions include but are not limited to- Iraqi war, FEMA during Katrina, Tornados in Kansas.

    Hide your books, record your favorite shows on dvd, and pick out your favorite shade of gray for your jumpsuit.

    And sincerest apologies to whomever fought for civil rights- must be a hard thing to be living thru this right now.

    Here is the audio clip, please keep in mind this was on their XM Station NOT on the Free Fm.

    XM Station that is a SUBSCRIPTION based. I have XM, my subscription is about to be up and I may not renew it.

    1. 1 more thing in my life to worry about.
    2. 4 years of studying radio broadcating gone down the drain.
    3. 5 years of being in the business killed.
    4. 1000's upon 1000's of dollars wasted at Columbia in Chicago
    5. 10's of 1000's of people who should spend more time fixing the "real" issues on the planet.

    Re: Opie and Anthony Suspended for 30 days

    O'Reilly was sued for stalking and harassing a female producer on his show. He paid her off.

    THANK YOU MR. O'REILLY FOR BEING MY MORAL COMPASS....YA DOUCHE!!! He needs to be fired for spreading IGNORANCE!

    THE ONLY THING THAT MANCOW SAID THAT I AGREE WITH - He chose to not support XM and cancelled his subscription cause he does not want to hear that filth. Well guess what- I WANT TO HEAR THAT FILTH. I AM WILLING TO PAY TO HEAR THAT FILTH AND THAT IS MY CHOICE. Another blatant idiot.

    I thought I heard them. I thought maybe it was their "worst" shows.

    Re: Opie and Anthony Suspended for 30 days

    Its sounding like they were suspended for talking about the incident, not hte comments themselves - STILL, not really a suspendable offense.
    http://www.bobschmidtproductions.com/clients/bob/OA.mp3

    Its still a farce though.. the situation has been getting worse and they decided to make a stand against it - on the air. They've asked for other radio personalities to band together to try and make changes to it, and apparently now standing up for yourself is offensive and a suspendable offense.

    What a joke.

    Voice your opinion, make a stand: http://peopleagainstcensorship.org/
