Howard Stern isn't the only one...
ATLANTA, Georgia (AP) -- Clear Channel Communications fired two radio station hosts Friday for broadcasting sexual dialogue during a commercial.
Larry Wachs and Eric Von Haessler, also known as "The Regular Guys" in their show on Atlanta radio station WKLS-FM, aired a skit on March 19 called
"backward smut," which involved recording a pornography star talking explicitly, then playing her voice backward over the air.
The hosts left a microphone on after the prank, however, causing listeners to hear sexual talk during a commercial. Wachs blamed "technical
difficulties," and Clear Channel Communications, which owns the station, said at the time the prank appeared to be an accident.
Clear Channel Vice President Pat McDonnell announced the end of the show Friday because of violations of a "zero-tolerance" indecency policy. Clear
Channel is the nation's largest radio chain.
Are we missing something bigger here, while we mostly agree that the FCC is out of control and our "freedom of speech" is being attacked, could it
be that they're really after Clear Channel & that Stern and "company" are the fall guys ?
