News Flash: American Culture Sinks to NEW NEW Low; World Just Rolls Eyes

Click on the link above and you will hear a radio DJ from Power 99 in Philedelphia make a prank call to a call center in India and proceed to call the poor woman a "bitch" and a "rat eater" and says he will "come out there and choke the eff out of you".

If there is an argument to be made against the trend of outsourcing, then make it. Here man, this one's free, the next one will cost ya: Thanks to outsourcing, those fucking immigrants don't even have to leave their homes to steal our jobs. See? It really IS that easy!

If you want to do it and make it funny go to the seat of the decision making power - policy makers, CEOs or whatever. Holding people accountable for their actions and watching them squirm is funny. Michael Moore taught me that.

Going after people who are in just as, if not more, precarious a position than you says that you, a) have a very feeble grasp of the issue, and b) are a scum sucking low-life with no compassion.

Doing this on your own time makes you a garden variety asshole. Doing this on the air makes you negligent in your professional duties as well as an asshole. People don't get fired for being an asshole though. I hope he loses his job, his credibility and has to take up a job in a call center somewhere to see what its like in this job he so covets. Horrible abuse of the privilege of being on the air.

Ugh. With all of the things Powell has done at the FCC it is not surprising that this crap is allowed on the air. The question now is how to change things.

I wonder if this is a potential solution?Hm....

i must say this: it is not all that difficult to find right-wing, racist, xenophobic, homophobic, sexist, etc. crap on commercial talk-radio. does it need the extra attention you are giving it?
