    Speak the truth (or his version of it) and your show gets canceled.

    What a country...

    He's a brokered host. Not real radio.

    Doesn't matter to me. The fact that he was dumped for stating the truth is what's bullshit.

    We all know that's true.

    As long as his skin isn't lily white, they'll claim him as black
    and that is the real reason he's been elected twice.

    It's probably worse. He was paying them for airtime. They dumped a paying customer for stating the truth.

    That's not true, Allen West vs a white democrat version of Obama and the white democrat wins. Its commie to fire him for saying it but his statement was not factually correct.

    So for shits and giggles I took a look at black vote percentages for presidential races since 2000... Gore got 90%, Kerry got 88%. yes Obama gets a bump but its not all that surprising. Bottom line naggers vote Dem period. Put up the darkest darkie republican and the most lily white dem... results wouldn't be much different.

    carry on with the boohooing...

    Yes the percentages might not be that different but how about the number of black voters actually voting. Meaning was there a million when Gore and Kerry ran and then 2 million voting when Obama ran. If so he is so correct, if not he is still partly correct based on some interviews I have heard.

    Still not a firing offense.

    Not only that, those additional votes were likely a factor in some swing states that could have given the election to Romney.

    That's fine, percentage wise. What about total number of voter turn out?

    I hate it when citizens vote.

    pre-Obama: whites enfranchised, blacks disenfranchised
    post-Obama: whites enfranchised, blacks enfranchised

    Quit whining you horrible awful faggots.

    This guy has been a "Staple" of St.Louis sports talk radio for like 25 years.
    He usually lasts about a year, and then gets fired. Then a year later, he gets another job, and gets fired.
    Old hat for him...

    Obama stuff aside, the guy is a real turd. Like a mix of Rush Limbaugh and Skip Bayless, he's a professional troll of sorts.
    He's the type of guy who would spend a day talking about how David Freese is the worst 3B in the league after his post-season heroics, he'll talk about how Jeff Fisher is the worst coach in the NFL, he's SHOCKING

    That's funny, the skinheads will say if you have one drop, your a ******, I guess the blacks feel the same way. Not being sarcastic, either.

    Sports Talk Radio is the fucking worst. They rarely ever talk about anything involving the actual sport, and instead spend whole hours talking about rumors, gossip, and offering horseshit opinions about people far more talented than themselves. It's Enquirer Sports Edition. I'm sure there's some decent ones out there, but all we have in my market is ESPN Radio and it's the pits.

    Why would any man want to get into talk radio now? Radio is more restrictive than PG television nowadays, even worse than PG family movies. Say one thing and you are the racist, sexist and homophobic talk of the town, an infamy fired out on your ass. I can hardly blame jocks for airing prepburger, doing 20 year old bits and having that lively and intriguing "Are they or are they not married?" angle. What is the alternative nowadays? Get fired in a month? Opie and Anthony 12 years ago were getting away with in some ways more on terrestrial than they do on a theoretically uncensored, Adults Only pay service free for all. O and A could never do the style of show they used to
    now on terrestrial.

    Edit: I think the idea of talking about sports for hours on end is exhausting and ultimately boring. It seems like the only thing you can do in that format is to just be an outrageous troll on purpose.
    If you are in Minnesota you can say something like the Hall of Fame is right to not induct Cris Carter. Is that sociopathic? Exactly. Maybe you can milk it for an hour, then go on to some more sports gossip.

    It can still be fun to do radio. Of course anyone not doing sports or politics doesn't last long in the business.

    The Internet is the best place to do radio for the art.

    The internet isn't radio, though. I've been considering doing a podcast, but to do it right I'd need to spend a ton on equipment.
