    Then start a better show, people will listen, J&K will lose ratings, and then lose their job. Asshole.

    These people need to mind their own cunting business. She was a fucking drug addict. So I guess it's not okay to call an elephant an elephant anymore. Fucking pc assholes.

    I know times are tough and the guys want to keep their gigs, but I still kinda want them fired for apologizing.

    Their apology was written by the same people who wrote O&A's Homeless Charlie apology. Don't read too much into the apology. We accept the station's decision. Yeah right.

    I know violence against women and free speech are two totally different subjects that can't really be weighed side by side, but it IS extremely fucked up that Chris Brown beat the living shit out of a chick and is now performing at the Grammys with seemingly no repercussions to his career, while people like this lose their jobs over some crude but 100% true statements.

    Their apology should have included a link to Joe Rogan's friend's video about selling her coke.

    Chris Brown is black and works in a field where it's acceptable to beat women. John and Ken are white and work in a field where people make a living trying to get you fired.

    These two guys are the most milquetoast "shock jocks" in the business. If they're not safe, no one in radio is. It's fucking disgraceful that management won't stand up for them and caves in to faggot special interest groups. They should just do what the management at my station does, ignore these assholes. Our management leaves the second their own shows are over and never read emails or take calls from listeners. More stations should be like that. These professional media assassins MUST be stopped.

    Is it too early to start cunting and whining in the listening thread?

    Who cares. If you work in the radio business and you call a college girl a nappy-headed hoe or if you call Whitney Huston a crackwhore the day after she died, you're going to get fired. Deal with it already!

    What do you do for a living? How would you like it if there were entire groups of people who nitpicked and distorted every little thing you did at work in an effort to get you fired? These groups are fucking scumbags and must be stopped. Just because you might not find John and Ken or Imus to be entertaining shows doesn't mean that they aren't deserving of protection from these assholes.

    they're also tiny groups with maybe 12 members, and I can assure you that anyone complaining about what these guys said, did not hear it when it was originally broadcast

    I have no idea what's that's like.

    It's only words. May be true also. But, should they be smarter in todays pc radio climate?

    You're right, there's no bullet-proof unions protecting them.
