There are other socialist, Democrat run places that have this issues, apparently.

Dion and Adams can burn in hell! Bleck!! Blue Rodeo is a great band though.  :)

1994 was (IMO) the last real solid year of the music industry. It pretty much started fracturing and dying after that, the year Kobain died. I’m not saying that’s why it started dying, there are several reasons but the correlation is there nonetheless.



I never really got the whole Nirvana thing (though I can't deny his influence.) That said, I would agree that it has been a downhill slide. More conformity, more formula, less individuality, everything is run through autotune, and more record companies pushing what they want.

It's not that there is nothing good- but certainly the majority of it is difficult to tell apart. Country sounds like pop, pop sounds like R+B.

I'm not sure how they are still afloat (like some "donations" by certain interests) but Buzzfeed's Silverman has a classic story for the kids these days. Apparently they should teach those evil "boomers" how to properly receive news and only from certain, approved sources but expert has one caveat: "One caveat: If the particular idea or claim is odious or clearly false, it’s not your job to help them express it. “If they're a white supremacist, don't validate their concern,” he said."

It is now "controversial" to not want to look like, or have conditions like, some South American countries. Apparently, now, infrastructure, cleanliness, low crime rates, less pollution, environmental action, and rodent control is "racist" and "bigotry."

Asians and muslims can be (are often) shameless in their use of cellphones in public. They’ll basically yell their conversation out in the middle of a busy store at a volume they wouldn’t in normal conversation, as if to say Look at me, everyone! I’m important. Remove the r and I’d agree. Well, today an elderly Asian man was doing just that when an elderly white man who clearly had enough of this told him to STFU! Then he looked at the Asian man and said, “Everyone can hear you!” The Asian man biligerantly responded, “That’s OK!” To which the white man said, “No it’s not!” I thought maybe they were going to come to blows as they were still arguing as I was leaving. I kept looking back.

SEX SCANDAL ROCKS FBI: Top Agents Under Fire For Reported Sexual Affairs with CNN Reporters

Quote
High-ranking FBI insiders say they reported top-level FBI brass for continued sexual romps with CNN reporters but former FBI director James Comey and his successor Christopher Wray looked the other way.

They stopped responding to reality and started trying to create it instead a long time ago; and they got away with it for years because of the one way (top down) nature of mass media back then. This is exactly why the internet is being demonized now as the source of all things evil, including mass murderers. Pathetic! Don’t fall for it, humanity. You’re better than this! ::)

This is a free country.  If an officer falls in love with a broadcaster, it's no one else's business.  Although it should be, adultery isn't even illegal so if President Clinton can commit adultery shamelessly, with someone considered inappropriate, then that sets the bar for everyone.

According to liberal columnists and talking heads at the time, the Lewinsky thing wasn't adultry, "it was just sex."  One well known female columnist allowed as how she could see herself doing what Lewinsky did.  Talk about party loyalty.

Dating reporters is fraught with risk. The relationship is fine as long as it doesn't involve the exchange of sexual favors for special access to information or to unduly influence law enforcement.  Many cops have gotten themselves in a jackpot  and even lost their pension just for putting themselves in a situation that makes them vulnerable to that type of thing.

Remember that if anyone tells you Australia is safer (or is mass shooting free) following the introduction of gun control, they're either lying or misinformed.

A deep Democrat drop has been provided to me:  The ticket will be Biden/Clinton.  That way when Biden dies in office, Hitlary will get to be the president they always dreamed she would be.

Pix of Alfredo "Fredo" Cuomo and his namesake going viral.

Fredo Jr. was fine with that goof when he was interviewed by Curtis Sliwa...

How did he morph it into Irish nigger when the worst it means is weak younger brother?

https://nypost.com/2019/08/13/chris-cuomo-once-referred-to-himself-as-fredo-in-radio-interview/

Sliwa said he dubbed the Cuomo family “la Cuomo Nostra.”

“There is a group of people — politicos — who always hint they might run, but not necessarily plunge all the way, and they are members of la Cuomo.”

“Who am I, then, Fredo?” Cuomo asked in response.

“Yes, exactly,” Sliwa said. “So you better be careful that your brother Andrew doesn’t kiss you on both cheeks and then all of a sudden they take you out on the middle of the lake and where’s Chris?”

“He kisses me plenty because he’s a great big brother,” Cuomo said.

A video that went primetime Monday on Twitter shows Cuomo in a heated shouting match with a man who called him “Fredo,” with the CNN newsman telling him it was an insult to Italians the same way the N-word is for African Americans.

Art always had some beef with Sliwa. Or vice versa? Not sure what the origin was. Maybe it was simply over airtime in the biggest radio market or something else? Memory fails me here but there was some kind of feud or comments between, I seem to recall?

Sliwa got it wrong.  It's when his brother lays a big wet one on his mouth that he needs to worry.

https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/alt.fan.art-bell/nghsoWFpIxM

Just this morning I was discussing this matter with my coworker -- the
same one who, to this day, asks me the reason behind Art Bell's
enigmatic disappearance a few months ago.  She opined that Curtis is a
bit jealous of Art because Art is heard on more than 400 radio stations;
Curtis is heard only on WABC.

Well gee, no wonder why Art is more successful than Curtis.  Art has
more of a neutral, broadcaster voice.  If Art has a regional dialect, I
would guess it would be Midwestern because he had lived in Illinois,
among many other states.  His words and sentences are clear and easy to
understand.  Curtis, on the other hand, sounds like a crossover between
James Cagney and Leo Gorcey.  By listening to his thick Brooklyn accent,
he sounds like he talks with his mouth full of food.  To many listeners
-- especially the more educated ones listening outside the tri-state
area, his voice is somewhat irritating. 

Also, IMHO, Curtis strongly lacks broadcasting etiquette.  Although Art
has pulled a few stunts that question his own professionalism, Curtis
clearly beats Art in this category.  While surfing the RealAudio
channels, I stumbled across WABC, wherein I heard a promo for Art's
late-night talk show.  Throughout the whole promo, Curtis was heard
yelling, "He's a loony gazoony!" and other epithets against Art.  Since
Curtis has a vendetta against Art, he should express his sentiments
AFTER the promo is being aired.  It would be tantamount to you and me
being heard yelling, "Don't buy that lemon from that huckster!" while
the commercial for a car dealership is being broadcast on radio or TV. 

Furthermore, by referencing the program schedule found in
http://www.wabcradio.com/, you will notice that Curtis is heard five
hours per night; Art is heard only four hours.  Therefore, it doesn't
really matter if Curtis does retain that extra hour he claims Art stole
from him.

Maybe the only professional solution to this perpetual feud is to
schedule Art and Curtis to a mud-wrestling match on "The Jerry Springer
Show."  If Curtis wins, he retains the extra hour.  If he loses, then he
should quit his broadcasting career, don his beret and resume his career
as the leader of the Guardian Angels.

Curtis Silwa was a boob who'd pick fights with other radio personalities in the NYC market trying to get his name out there. Did the same thing with Howard Stern.

Not sure as I'm not familiar with either of those shows but Stern has had a couple funny dissections of Silwa who was doing the exact same thing to Stern that he was doing to Bell. I'm not familiar with Silwa in anyway other than being a silly punching bag for Stern and Bell.
