MICHAEL MEDVED SURPRISES ME SOMETIMES
We have a problem, those of us who go on the air every day, which is, where is the line? Now, I am not saying I would ever consider on my show doing a bit like they did, but there are people out there right now who want to discipline Rush Limbaugh because he has a parody song about Barack Obama that is called -- and this is his song -- it's called "Barack, the Magic Negro".

And the problem is there are no clear lines as to what is tasteless in what medium. And the one thing that has been very clear, as I listen occasionally to the Howard Stern show, which is on the competing satellite radio service, and it has incredibly outrageous stuff all the time.

So, all of a sudden I think Opie and Anthony were probably surprised that all of a sudden now there are going to be standards on satellite radio that have never been there. I think what the industry needs to do is to try to lay out some sort of clear standard so people on air can understand what's expected of us.
Medved on Reliable Sources, 5/20 digg this
I noticed this very problem on last Thursday's Red Eye. The panel kept throwing around the term "donkey punch" because John Gibson had to apologize for Patrice O'Neal saying it on The Big Story, and Fox News bleeped "punch" but not "donkey." It's the "punch" part that makes it offensive, apparently. Maybe because it's the verb? Then guest comedian Robert Kelly said "donkey punch" a little later and it wasn't bleeped. Kind of sums up the whole issue: Nobody knows where the line is! So it's ridiculous to punish O&A and Imus and Limbaugh and the rest of these guys for "crossing" it.
