Is she the most annoying guest, ever?

I'll answer for: yes.

I don't listen to C2C for pseudo-numerology astrology BS. I don't really mind George, but guests like this... shit.
Radio and Podcasts / Art Bell's FCC Stance
June 23, 2008, 02:56:26 AM
I've heard Art Bell call himself a Libertarian and he's a member of the LP, but one major disagreement I have with his politics is his stance on the FCC regulation of obscenities. On onee of the shows he talks about it, it airs on the UFOship reruns, and he says that he supports the regulations (at least partially) because obscenities don't contribute to the quality of discussion/etc.

However, in my mind, from a Libertarian perspective, that is irrelevant. Using four letter words every third word spoken doesn't make a contribution to discussion, but in a dramatic performance or a passionate outpouring there is simply nothing that can replace an 'obscenity.' You know this if you've ever watched a movie on television to find 'obscenities' bleeped-out or replaced with a milder form, and find the impact of the original dialogue is totally lost and downright stupid, something no one would ever say in real life in a given situation.

It comes down to a matter of Freedom of Speech. The First Amendment wasn't made to protect popular speech, but unpopular speech that people may disagree with, be it for political reasons or pseudo-ethical ones.

What say you?

I thought I'd start this, in contrast to the other one, which will obviously have Art Bell lead.

If you choose "Other Host," please name who you think is/would be a great candidate for hosting.

If you like two equally, choose "Other Host" and specify that in a reply.
