Newsweek does its 'Shock Jock' Hall of Fame

Now on the heels of the Imus controversy, we have Newsweek waging war against the 'shock jocks', with their own rogue's gallery to go with.

Of course Imus is numero uno because of his nappy headed comment.

Number 2?

Of course it is, Rush (can't link to image/story, but the following is how it reads.)

Off His Meds?: Rush Limbaugh, waiting to tee off at Pebble Beach a few years ago, would land in the rough in 2006 for claiming that Michael J. Fox looked like he was exaggerating the effects of his Parkinson's disease. The actor appeared in political ads, visibly unable to control his swaying and shaking, to voice his support for candidates who favor stem cell research. 'He's moving all around and shaking and it's purely an act,' said Limbaugh.

He would apologize later in the day, but couldn't resist adding 'Michael J. Fox is allowing his illness to be exploited and in the process is shilling for a Democratic politician.'

They offer you a picture of Rush which makes him look like as vile and insensitive a scumtard the caption likens him to be. Shocker. Go on and on. It is all about the 'horrible' things conservatives say.

Please view the entire piece from Newsweek. This is not about singling out 'shock jocks' in radio. It is about taking conservative radio personalities off of the air.

'Shock jock' is an ineffable term. In my limited intellectual capabilities, it defies me to give it a definition. But it SHOULD NOT redefine and marginalize a person's voice or a movement's voice, by calling it hate, or any of the ism's so often used.

The same goes true for these radio personalities, when I agree with them, or when I don't agree with them, let their voices stand.
