I feel very muich akin to Howard Stern. Outside the fact that I grew up listening to him since I was 12 or so, here on ATS I feel I am very much in
the same battle as he is. So, in tribute to Howard, I post this glowing article about my man:
Howard Stern having impact with crusade against Bush
WASHINGTON - Forget Al Franken. Democrats have a new champion on talk radio that they hope will counter the likes of conservative icons Rush Limbaugh
and Sean Hannity. It's shock jock Howard Stern.
Known more for crude talk of sex and lewd acts than politics or public policy, Stern has launched an on-air crusade he calls a "jihad" to defeat
President Bush. He blames Bush for a government crackdown on his use of obscenity on the air.
And he's having an impact, apparently boosting the prospects of Sen. John Kerry, D- Mass., according to a new Democratic poll released Thursday. That
was welcome news to Democrats who've long ached for a liberal voice on talk radio and have watched in frustration as former comic Franken has
struggled with a new program that has limited airplay.
"Howard Stern is the most influential political talk-show host in America today," said Michael Harrison, the editor of Talkers magazine, which
covers the talk-radio industry.
Howard is the man.
