Re: Boycott Madonna Over Remarks?

I thought it was interesting to see Newt Gingrich refer to Madonna as a "left-wing fascist." Fascism, by definition is a government that stifles and restricts opposition. That's exactly what Gingrich is suggesting the government do to Madonna. So who's the fascist here?

Re: Boycott Madonna Over Remarks?

"BTW: reporters have been arrested at the event that Madonna was at for "inciting a riot" because they were caught telling people to do things so they could record it for the news." Really? Do you have a reference for that? "She has her crazy fans. Her comment by itself is not the issue, it's the fe...

Re: Boycott Madonna Over Remarks?

"dare one could draw the conclusion that Madonna's statement about blowing up the White House falls directly under the category named above." So now you're placing yourself as the Supreme Court? I don't think so. Look if you want to ban some singer because you don't like her politics, go ahead. I do...

Re: Boycott Madonna Over Remarks?

BTW wasn't there a movie where they blew up the White House? Should they ban that movie now and arrest the people connected with it?

Re: Boycott Madonna Over Remarks?

The Constitution doesn't make distinctions over what speech is protected. She didn't encourage anyone to blow up the White House. If she had, that would be inciting violence. Her statement was that she's thought about it. Not unlike Juan Williams saying he has had thoughts when he sees someone in a ...

Re: Small, Privately Owned Stations Rule

There are thousands of small, independently owned radio stations in this country. Also lots of stations owned by radio corporations. There was a time when the biggest companies in the world, like General Electric and RCA, owned radio stations. Not any more. The big radio companies may seem big, but ...

Re: MJ on Classic Rock?

Who plays lead guitar on Beat It? Did MJ get played on MTV back in the day? Of course he did. Did songs from Thriller get played on rock stations back in the day? Of course they did.

Re: Goodbye to Radio!

"The next time I walk into a Radio Station I will either own it or work for an owner who will give me complete control." Lots of stations on the market, if you look. The bargains are small AM stations that no one wants. You can get one for less than the price of a house. No owner is going to give an...

Re: This just in: LOCAL RADIO DEAD!!!

And yet hundreds of country radio stations are live and local. All of the CBS, Entercom, Saga, Alpha, Cox, Summit, and Townsquare stations swear by live & local staffs. But yes, everything you learned about radio in the 90s is wrong. If you're on the air now, you don't have to cue up records any mor...

You're either part of the solution, or you're part of the problem. Guess we know where you fit in.
