#1
Ok the guys said 20/20 is gonna be in the studio tomorrow doing something for a piece in to be aired in July and will also be with Black Earl at Toyota Hackensack for a WOW sticker stop. Do you think 20/20 is gonna try and trash O&A?

I would think they would use it as a way of saying: "Look where society has brought entertainment" or something to that effect. I hope they give them respect as entertainers. The truth is that's all it is. Well this will be the first time in my 21 years that I will be watching 20/20. SO they should be thankful for the rating they are going to get. ;)

Did anyone else find it interesting that the staff and reporters made it seem like the subject matter and material that O&A discuss and seem to represent was disgusting and wrong, but they were not above using it for their own ratings? If what O&A do is so wrong why would they give them the time and coverage? The fact is that O&A and talk radio are hot topics and very controversal. Like MAV said a month ago, I am sure many people tuned in tonight who would never watch that stuffy uptight show. The people from the FCC and Washington sounded so uptight I doubt they could squeeze a greased BB out their asses. Who else thought Mancow made an ass of himself. Saying that he had trouble sleeping at night? What the hell was that? Sounds like he was a fraid to take a stand and defend what he does. Lost a lot of credibility in my book and he didn't have much to begin with in the first place. And what was that shit about billboards? Like people will get more offended by a sign that says WOW as opposed to the billboards fo half naked people for the GAP and Calvin Klien. Come on get real. The only purpose of that show was to ride the wave and catch some ratting. Unfortunately, it brought the story to the front page (so to speak) and will give O&A the attention of these watchdog groups. They sold out the whole industry by explaining that the FCC doesn't monitor everything and relies on the public. Now all the stuck up prudes will be listening and taping, just trying to catch something they find offensive. The ironic thing is that I find that to be offensive myself. Who do I write to in regards to this? Keep up the good work O&A, you guys are doing nothing wrong. And to those who think they are, go fuck yourself!

You could write to your congressman or senator so they could put you on a black list as an extremist. The whole segment was fuckin ridiculous. You've got one old worn out dueche bag that probably takes offense at the word "darn". About the FCC- ALL governmant agencies write their laws so they can be interpreted different ways. it depends on how you read it.it's so they can't get sued later on for infringing any one's rights or other laws that already exist. The problem is, there are so many laws, it's hard to keep track of them, and new ones contradict old ones. i've had dealings with federal agencies and it's just amazing how words can be manipulated into what "they" want them to mean at the time. I have one rule book that has about 2,000 pages of small print about shipping regulations that is impossible to understand. O & A are fucked now.Like you said- all these watchdogs groups are going to listen every day and find some thing offensive. They will have the FCC phone number on speed dial. Good luck to O&A.

Motherfucker!!! I missed it. I forgot all about it. I read it in the Daily news and waited all day to get out of work to come home and watch it and it slipped my mind.

So I take it from your guys comments that they were not percieved as talented and original? Which to me is complete bullshit. I knew they would use this against them. Fuck it, the FCC has alot of power, but they do not control the American people. Although they try to. They cannot control the open minded people. The people who can take things for the entertainment value and not as a cold calculated act, intoxicating the minds of America's youth.

It is enertainment, the show is popular because it is fun. It may exploit certain things, but I look at it as opening up and not being such a tight-ass about certain things in society. For example: Racism, sexist acts, and exploitation of the female body or any body for that matter. What I take from the Opie and Anthony show is it is a fun way to let go and make fun of the disgusting PC world we live in. So if they are censored, the FFC or any government agency that strips us of that are just robbing us of our rights. We want therefore we deserve. If smiling and laughing about the serious matters in the world doesn't help people cope with it, what will? I assure you it isn't crying over it! That's my opinion and I for one think it should be a way of life.



I just went to Foundry music and there are great clips in the "Files" section, under most recent.
