It’s one thing to deride someone for her behavior. It’s another to deliberately embroider said comments - yes, she was a junkie, but a whore? Disgustingly sexist, not to mention defamatory. And giving out someone’s phone number? Why weren’t they arrested??

Jon and Ken are LA shock-jocks long known for their outlandish talk. So, it took quite a bit before KFI decided to bench them.

What a couple of douche-bags. If somebody pulled this at the station where I work, the manager (who is also the owner) would run them out of the studio at gunpoint.

That is exactly what they are, shock jocks. Their mission is to use the most incisive language possible to incite their base (which is surprisingly very large—I would imagine mostly in Orange County and Riverside/San Bernardino) and get them to harass and bully their opponents. When I first moved to OC many years ago from northern California I was kinda lulled into listening to KFI because of its populist tones/defending the tax payer mantra, but quickly was filled with hatred—towards the hosts that became increasingly more and more outlandish, mean and outright racist.

They essentially run a bully pulpit.

I listen to Bill Handel podcasts from KFI, but never could stand John and Ken. They really are hate-filled, nasty human beings.

Indigenous Americans Ruled Democratically Long Before the U.S. DidDemocracy: it was older and more widespread than we thought. At the Oconee site, called Cold Springs, artifacts were excavated before the valley became an aquatic playground. Now, new older-than-expected radiocarbon dates for those museum-held finds push back the origin ...
