Stern has charged on the air that he's being punished for his criticism of President Bush (news - web sites). Clear Channel's political action committee and its employees have given $265,800 to Republicans for the 2004 election, more than any other broadcaster, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonpartisan research group.


"You've got to vote Bush out to send a message as a Howard Stern fan," Stern said during one recent broadcast. "There's a cultural war going on. The religious right is winning. We're losing."


"A conservative advocacy group, the Parents Television Council, applauded the FCC's decision"

"Clear Channel's political action committee and its employees have given $265,800 to Republicans for the 2004 election, more than any other broadcaster, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonpartisan research group."

God damn it, I wish people would stop with the BS about Children hearing all this stuff he does, fu@king parents should teach their kids not to tune into his show and tune into Ophra or springger instead!

BTW the FCC is full of [censored]!

The day Stern was fired, Oprah was talking about various sex acts in graphic detail and was not fined. Clear Channel fired other jocks as well for speaking out against GW.

They probably just needed a good excuse (besides the fact that his show is a bunch of unimaginative filler).
