ALL other talk shows

Seems to me there'd be more interest & solidarity in the events surrounding MITD than there seems to be.  I look at the threats to Art Bell to be threats to b'casting generally, & think they'd naturally all take an interest.  Then again, they didn't seem much up to taking the side of Howard A. Stern when he came under a different kind of threat.  So maybe there's not as much of a radio "community" as I'd thought.

I thought they might also take an interest in the Cinderella story we have developing here in the form of [Redacted].  Discussing precedents, I happened to Google the taking over of Judy Jarvis's small-station network talk show by her son Jason when she sickened & then died, and found it was something of a big deal at the time in the industry trade j. Talkers; even got into the Congressional Record.

Am I looking at this wrong, or are others surprised too in the lack of interest elsewhere?

I'm not surprised by the lack of interest else where about the state of MiTD.  Art's popularity went down the tubes due to him quitting over and over, being off the air for two years is a death sentence to your popularity.

But I'd think popularity would have nothing to do with it, or might even work against concern.  I'd've thought the story would be that SOMEBODY (no matter if it's someone they ever heard of) was intimidated off radio by death threats.
