Quote:
Ever since hate radio golden boy Rush Limbaugh's disgusting attacks on Sandra Fluke a year ago, karma has been a real bitch for Clear Channel--who stood by their man.
Clear Channel's radio revenue has been decimated by the StopRush movement through the efforts of activist groups like Flush Rush Facebook.

Then this:

Last month, Clear Channel reported losses of $424 million for 2012. The media company has been firing employees throughout the past year in an effort to stop the hemorrhaging, to no avail. And Chairman of the Board Mark Mays announced his impending resignation.

As I've said before WSPD needs to walk away from these Right wing partisan ideologues. Fred has to be more inclusive in his morning show. Fred has walked somewhat away from the disaster of the previous program director but he now needs to run from it. WSPD's market share will not grow in this hate filled atmosphere. The region is decidedly democratic yet WSPD limits it listeners to less than half of the areas demographic. If ClearChannel is to survive and grow it needs to give up its propaganda format and go where the ratings are. Are you listening Program Director Scott Sands?

No votes yet

yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah. But thanks for this idea-I'm going to contact his sponsors in SUPPORT of him.

Yaaaawwwwwnnnnnnnnn. I'll be on tomorrow from 6-9a, followed by Glenn, then Rush, Johny at 3. As the talking heads so aptly said "same as it ever was"

I think the best part of this story is that the Pinellas Park Firefighters Pension Board is one of the investors who sued. So despite the Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, Levin etc right wing rhetoric and supposed anti union talk the Firefighters Pension Board knows a good investment when they see it. Any hush Rush movement only serves to hurt the hard working union Firefighters of Pinellas Park. Truly ironic.

The only truly ironic factoid is Fred's picture in the latest issue of the Toledo Free Press. To see Fred with a forced smile in a group picture with the "Wear Blue" Tee shirt has got to be a joke. Somehow thinking WSPD as supporting April 10th blue day raising awareness of child abuse is over the top. Have we forgotten the last five years? WSPD has championed lower wages, anti union, anti worker policies that ultimately result in dysfunctional families resulting in child abuse. To put a rose on this skunk it nothing more than pure folly.

Okay--I'm trying to think like Wolfman--revealing the truth about union thugs results in child abuse. Yep--it is sooooooooooo obvious!

The idea that only low income families have problems with child abuse is a fallacy that many in the social service agencies fight against each day. Ignorant Wolfman once again proves his prejudice against those less fortunate than himself. Cultural factors, social isolation, even intergenerational abuse all contribute this serious problem. Often those with money are better able to hide the problem and have little interaction with social agencies that work with child abuse.
What's really sad about ignorant Wolfman's post is his taking a truly serious issue like the abuse of children and trying to tie it into WSPD and Clear Channel being a supporter of the Wear Blue day this coming Wednesday. Julie Malkin will be on with me on Tuesday, and Dean Sparks the following Monday to talk about the problem of child abuse in our community. I can only hope that ignorant Wolfman will tune in at least to that part of the show so that he may receive a Freducation on the problem.
Not being a psychologist, or psychiatrist I can only hope that the attitide expressed here by ignorant Wolfman isn't a result of bias toward the LCCS because of inaction on a case in which he may have been involved.

As a former Boy Scout leader I know abuse when I see it. Being trained in child abuse awareness Fred again shows his ignorance on the subject. The only abuse that I've recently become aware of is last year when Mr Entertainer's marital problems surfaced in Lucas County Court. It still not known who abused whom.

"as a former Boy Scout leader I know abuse....." From an October 2012 NY Times report - Details of decades of sexual abuse in the Boy Scouts of America, and what child welfare experts say was a corrosive culture of secrecy that compounded the damage, were cast into full public view for the first time on Thursday with the release of thousands of pages of documents describing abuse accusations across the country.
Here's the link about Boy Scout leaders and their abuse of young boys. Draw your own conclusions. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/19/us/boy-scout-documents-reveal-decades-...
There is no link in this story to the economic standing of any of the Boy Scout leaders. Paul is suggesting some imaginary link that goes this way Radio station does stories about unions, unions lose power and employees lose wages, low wage employees abuse their children. Hell even this makes more sense man has child, man eats fruits and vegetables, man abuses his child.
The reason for Wear Blue day is to focus attention on child abuse. Ignorant Wolfman's attempt to draw the focus away from the problem and shift it to the radio station or me is pitiful and very sad. It's time you all told him that.

We all Know your hatred of unions and the workers who have had it better than you because they stuck to an employer with superior pay and benefits than ClearChannel. Your envy cup runith over! Fred will not tell you that most union employees are family orientated and many spend their time volunteering with great organization such as the Boy Scouts. As a so-called Catholic he should be well aware of the great things the Boy Scouts have done for kids in this community. Being in photo ops is more to promote WSPD than anything they have really done for the Toledo community. I can tell Fred has NEVER spent a week out-of-doors, in a tent, away from the comforts of his basement computer Lazy Boy. Any real physical activity is only a temporary inconvenience.

You and your propaganda station paint the working class as unworthy but never see what goes on behind the glare of your glitzy TV/radio promotions glorifying the country club set who donated some cash at a one night fund raiser while downing a bottle of wine in drunken celebration of themselves. We see the perennial actors of self promotion doing more for them than the truly needy. Then daily local radio spews its anti worker anti family rhetoric showing Northwest Ohio what really matters to ClearChannel. No Fred your chastising the Boy Scouts is but another window into your hateful vindictive reptilian soul.

Who is it that is destroying an institution? The people who commit wrongs within an institution or those who point it out.

Ladies and Gentlemen I give you the Scout Oath:

On my honor I will do my best
to do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
to help other people at all times;
to keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.

wolfman says he took this oath. Yet, he felt compelled to slander the wife of Brian Wilson, don't take my word for it as he admitted it publically.

So I ask you, does he have the right to attack fred when his actions were not morally straight?

"As a former Boy Scout leader I know abuse when I see it" because I dished it out.

Somewhere on someones desk is a thick file on the many abuses of young boys performed by the angry Union activist, Wolfman.

Being a frothing member of the UAW and suffering the castration associated with willingly giving his cohones to a Shop Steward is one of the classic triggers of this kind of abuse.

In a feeble attempt to regain some of his lost masculinity, Dogboy dominated young and impressionable youths.

Hence the reason bitchboy and other Liberal types are "Pro Gay Marriage".

It makes one wonder if Little Willie the obscene phone caller type was one of Paul's little boy toys. That would explain so much of the mental issues Little Willie has.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

Does the court even allow you to see your kids?

It's really too bad for you that you obviously were one of Wolfie's Cub Scouts too.

Don't worry. It's nothing years of therapy cannot cure.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

Nice projection there, but I’ll take it that as a no.

Or at the least, you're another one of those neutered union hacks trying to get back some of your masculinity.

It must be sadly pathetic to be one of your type. Lumped together with Wolfie, Little Willie and the rest of the she-males.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

Again projecting your anger and short comings. It's your wife who left you because you couldn't satisfy her and of course you’re a dick. I had assumed you were dick because your wife took the kids and left, but now realize that your wife left you because you’re a dick. It’s all making sense now.

I had to look up what "projection" means so I guess you win.

"Projection is a defense mechanism that involves taking our own unacceptable qualities or feelings and ascribing them to other people."
http://psychology.about.com/od/theoriesofpersonality/ss/defensemech_7.htm

That tells me two things about you.
1) You really have been in therapy. How else could you know what "projection" is
2) Your "own unacceptable quality" is that your wife left you, took the kids, probably has a restraining order on you, and you are being bent over by the courts.

Add to that the fact that you've given up your own personal responsibility and future, had your backbone removed and are now a slave to some Union President who probably doesn't even know your name and could care less about your sorry ass and it's no wonder you are such an angry little she-male.

There is no shame in seeking professional help like you obviously have done. I'm happy you were able to admit that you have a problem and sought help instead of going postal.

Well, it's been fun rubbing your nose in your shortcomings, but as I've said months ago, your opinion doesn't mean anything.

Now turn off your computer, go grab another beer from the fridge, call your mommy and cry to her about your lack of backbone.

Have a nice day.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

Sorry I used a three syllable word, I'll try to use smaller ones from here on out.

Completely wrong on everything. Nice try though, since you brought up restraining order, I'm guessing you ex-wife has one of those on you too...

You're completely broken, just give it up.

I'll bet she dumped you for a man with a backbone who didn't have to give up his balls to a Union Rep. to survive.

When she dumped your sorry ass and put you into therapy, was it because she wanted a man who would stand on his own two feet instead of giving up his life and balls to a Union Steward?

I am glad you are seeking mental help. It's no shame to admit you're a broken, spinless shell of a male who's had his kids ripped away from him and his wife leave him for a real man.

Thanks, for sharing what you've learned in therapy. I'm happy for Toledo that you've choosen to seep professional help instead of shooting up a grade school.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

I just saw on Drudge that due to Wolfman's devastating comments, Rush Limbaugh is calling it quits.

No doubt, one heartless son of a bitch...

As America dies, this geriatric geezer is deriving pleasure from it ?
Senility & dementia,are terrible things to witness.

Hey old man, thank you for your zeal & glee as my generation and the next 3, will suffer because of "citizens", like you !

Eat shit & die !!!

"What kind of human being wants a corporation to suffer or die ? "

Just search the site for threads about the automobile industry…

Olsmobile ?!

Are those the former auto making companies & the 315,000 former UAW members,you refer to ASSHOLE !!!???
Or, is Fisker Motors, the one you refer to ASSHOLE !!??

Sure moron, I was refering to the thread about Fisker Motors. /sarcasm>

What a dumbass...

I believe SENSORG is better served by posting on Toledo Talk. He's a REAL BIG SHOT there--spouting on about how to cook corned beef and which restaurant has the best onion rings.

And you're better served getting locked backed in the gimp box, but yet here we are.

At first I thought SENSORG actually meant a "gimp suit," but then I realized he was referring to a "gimp box stitch" (you know, the weaving you do to make a lanyard). He had a fascinating post on Toledo Talk about the best arts and crafts to do at camp!

The best you've got is making things up about what I post over at ToledoTalk.com? That's funnier that anything I could post about you.

I'm not sure anything could be "funnier" than a Sensorg post.
