That's it. Ask the difficult question.  ::)

Can someone please explain where the racism is supposed to be in the wording of his tweet? I'm trying to teach my 5 year old daughter about racism and want to know if this is a good example. Is it solely because the women pictured is black? If he had used the same wording towards a white women would it still be racist? I'm confused. I'm not sure racism in this part of the world is the same. Or are people in North America more sensitive?

Now if they had objected to his rant for it being leveled towards a women .... Would he still have been fired for the same rant against a man. Now I'm more confused. Have they never listened to the show? Do they even listen to Stern? If Stern had made the same rant would he ..... oh never mind.

Sorry, never saw someone flip over a thread being started like this. Especially one that just asks a question and posts some links...

No need to apologise; The respondent didn't understand that asking a question, posting links and giving the thread a neutral title didn't mean any side was being taken. because a) They're not that bright, and b) see a.

Here in the US nearly any negative interaction between a white person and a non-white person can be categorized as 'racist' by the politically correct.  Or even interactions that aren't negative.  Mentioning a persons race, or mentioning race in general can be considered racist.  It's BS of course.

I read through both linked articles to see for myself what exactly was racist about the tweets.  Nasty unpleasant stuff.  About what you should expect from me if I were to be attacked in a similar situation. 


The only tweet I saw that I thought was 'racist' was the:  "They aren't people" comment.   If the 'they' meant just the attacker and the people egging her on, ok.  If he meant all black people, that's racist.  The rest of it is not, IMO

May I suggest a switch to Asian porn. They blur the naughty bits so you can concentrate more on the subtitles. Less distractions.

Off the air for good, until he launches (relaunches?) Live from the Compound.

This past weekend he was seen enjoying his unplanned vacation with transsexual porn star Bailey Jay and a black person.

@Bateman my theory is the wording of the guys contract is if they quit today they are on a no compete for 2 years or maybe less.  So I'm thinking they will finish out their contract while Ant is laying the groundwork.  If anyone listens closely Opie says me and Ant are a corporation together.  That to me means Anthony is going to get all the equipment and advertisers lined up, which rumors have it are quite a bit have been begging them to jump to podcasting, and then they may charge like 5 to 10 bucks a month for their daily show which if you're a true fan you only subscribe to satellite for best of xm, which is only O&A.  I pay 300 a month give or take so this will be a very cool deal.  But I truly believe Anthony is setting everything up for the other two while they finish out the contract.  This also means free hints to where they are going.  I'm hoping since the contract ends in October the day after they go off of Sirius they start jocktobering Sirius the next day on the Opie and Anthony Network.  That to me would be awesome and also if I was Sirius I have NO IDEA why they wouldn't let them out of the contract because they will be getting three months of free press about what and where they will be going after the contract is up.  This makes me laugh.  Sirius is now becoming like that girlfriend that leaves shit in your house so she has an excuse to stay in your life lol.  Anyway, I just hope Sam, Erik, Travis, and hell even Sal come along.  And wouldn't it be funny if Danny showed back up.  Maybe Anthony will forgive him for the shit he did to him.  I heard he shit talked Ant after he got fired from Sirius.  Anyway, that's what I keep hearing.

If you're an Opie and Anthony fan you'll enjoy this Hitler mod.  It's sad, but at the same time VERY funny.

I never heard these guys. My listening to "shock jocks" died when the Greaseman went away, or maybe it was growing up (a bit.) He used to get in trouble all the time also for various things of a racial variety, but had a real talent and a great soundboard, secret lingo to get away with sexual terms without using them, and stories/characters that were hilarious. Only Phil Hendrie comes close to making commutes funny.

Phil Hendrie was talking about Opie and Anthony a few days ago. Phil said that the podcasting model he is using is doing very well-far better than he anticipated-and that Opie and Anthony should be doing the same thing as soon as their Sirius contract is over.

Phil's podcast/show started in March of this year.

I haven't check it out. Sorta got mad at Phil with his strategy of taking fan sites down. Is it more "good Phil" (character driven n callers) or the political Phil? I know Greaseman even supported the archive sites n those of us who taped shows. I got some emails from him on it. I know different decades but I wish Phil (etc) would support us more. Esp if they no longer own rights (you know who else I mean.) I think if Phil is now podcast only it would be good marketing to encourage fan sites n archiving (and even wink-wink sharing his old stuff.)

Its more of the good Phil right now. Not sure about the archive sites, maybe things will change once the online show is established.
I was thinking about how the show is delivered, and I think Phil was right that Opie and Anthony could do a really good job with an internet show filled with insider special features.  A similar platform to what Phil is using now would be better for them than the Sirius platform.

Thanks. Going to check out for sure. I wonder how the "callers" work with internet? Still any real ones? I imagine less believing callers cause a podcast needs to be known whereas a person could "happen upon" Phil on AM n get outraged n call in. Maybe he faked some, but I think he had real callers "responding" to his "guests" in the old days.

It's good to see all the support they're getting.  Some Uncle Paul guy in New Jersey is attempting to break the world record for kids sitting in his lap in support of O&A.

Trivia: Lil' Jimmy stole his "Jackknife into a lake of aids" line from Art Bell

Did anyone hear Phil Hendrie's July 4th take on Anthony's firing? Man. It was Just an uninformed pile of suck. I wish he had just kept his mouth closed. Every time Phil has the opportunity to make me lose more respect for him, he takes it.

I heard a show around that day and Phil's comments went basically like this:
1. Anthony was stupid for ranting in public
2. Sirius is made of suits that care about only money and don't give a shit about the talent (Sirius doesn't even pay their DJs)
3. At Sirius, the suits control the talent.
4. In Phil's situation he controls the suits.
5. O&A are better off in a situation where they control the suits.

My facepalm occurred when Phil said Anthony would have been fired immediately had he said these things on the air.

I tried listening to Opie and Anthony back in their WXRQ and WNEW days and never understood the appeal.
I was spoiled and grew up with Imus in the Morning and Howard Stern in the afternoon on 66 WNBC in the '80's.  This was back when Imus was a drunken, coke snorting riot doing stuff like swapping out all the flags at the UN for American flags. NBC was so stupid for firing Stern; his stuff then was brilliant (Beaver Break, Lesbian Dial-a-Date, Pig Virus).
I've listened to Bubba the Love Sponge.  Awful.  Opie and Anthony?  Nothing there.  Dee Snider did a better drive time show.
