"Bob was being interviewed on local radio and I happened to flip over during one of NPR’s underwriter [spots] (read commercial) and they said if you have a question for Bob call in, I was the first. I asked him (as he had earlier spoken about news becoming an entertainment, profit, venture as opposed to real news) about what Newt had done in gutting the funding for public broadcasting and the increasing underwriting that they all lean on now… Bob replied basically saying, 'yep, Newt had done that and as we all know had his head handed to him for various reasons and has since sited NPR as a source and even has a coffee mug.' Anyway, he’s speaking at Oglethorpe University tonight as part of his book tour. I was later admonished as the previous caller asking such a serious question… oh well.Damn, how dare you ask a serious question on a Commercial Rock and Roll radio station? What were you thinking? This is a station proud of its banality. It knows its listeners are demographically morons, and you go and ask a serious question? You're lucky they didn't DF your position and send out the attack dogs.
