Stern was only permanently let go on Clear Channel stations from which he was already removed anyways. He still airs on the rest of this affiliates.

Too bad he is on vacation this week, I would have loved to hear what he had to say about this fine. I find it funny that they only fined the Clear Channel stations and not any of the other stations which carry Stern.

Straight from his website:

Howard's Response To The FCC's Actions:



"This is not a surprise. This is a follow up to the McCarthy type "witch hunt" of the administration and the activities of this group of presidential appointees in the FCC, led by "Colin Powell Jr." and his band of players. They and others (a senator from Kansas City to a congresswoman from New Mexico) are expressing and imposing their opinions and rights to tell us all who and what we may listen to and watch and how we should think about our lives. So this is not a surprise. It is pretty shocking that governmental interference into our rights and free speech takes place in the U.S. It's hard to reconcile this with the "land of the free" and the "home of the brave". I'm sure what's next is the removal of "dirty pictures" like the 20th century German exhibit in a New York City Museum and the erotic literature in our libraries; they too will fall into their category of "evil" as well.

FCC = Federal Censorship Commission

If you watch Howard Stern, it's no secret what's on his show. If you don't like it change the channel.

What I find as intellectually offensive is that Viacom/CBS/MTV didn't get charged a dime over the Superbowl... an innocent Football game with blatent nudity.

Oh, Howard Stern is syndicated by an arm of Viacom... what is it with this company? Is everything but Dan Rather sex oriented? I bet when he retires, CBS will bring in the naked news to "reach a younger audience".

The satellite radio companies are both lobbying to carry Stern now since they can be uncensored.
