Hah! Central Carolina Community College. That brings back memories - of when I'd visit my friends that attended there, of course.

Eh, I can sort of see the position of the university that they've got state/taxpayer funds paying for a political show, which might put them in a bit of a conflict of interest.

Now, if the "independent" podcast version (as a self funded student group, I assume) is prohibited from advertising on campus, then we should grab the pitchforks.

How can you have the titanic ego required to be an elected official while simultaneously be such a mewling enema bag that a college radio show with a total listenership in the high single digits must be stopped?

What is their programming schedule and format? Each day, each time slot. What show filled the FCC requirement when they stopped doing The Rant. Or did they stop? Has the show been in production since 2008? What is the radio station's budget?What is the source of its funding?

I'm curious about the 'look' that conservative blowhards often have. Here are some examples:

Does being a conservative blowhard mutate your body into a baby-faced, pudgy white man? Or does being a baby-faced, pudgy white man naturally lend itself to conservative blowhardism through genetics or the experience of living life as a baby-faced, pudgy white man?

They did. It was sort of a transparent jab, but still defensible from a 1st Amendment standpoint. As for a publicly funded show that has political leanings, one might look at PBS, or NPR or any number of programs that are funded in this same way.

UMF, for years, allowed Dean Chambers to run his rants. Why? Because despite his political leanings, it was felt that he and his version of the Spectator--which he wound up losing funding for some violations of university's code of conduct--were still a part of campus culture. When he lost the funding for the Spectator, it wasn't for the political leanings, but his staffing of the paper, and how he was using university funds. Repugnant as many found his NeoConservative and sometimes outright racist rants, he still was within his rights to pursue them. Folks certainly were able to criticize him right back, but the university only acted when they discovered irregularities on the books for his paper. His show continued.

Most public radio stations begin with a university, which are funded publicly. That's sort of the point. Without the need for commercialization, those stations are freed from the need to cater to advertisers whims. In this case, it's sort of obvious that our Beamish Boy made his displeasure known, and allowed the school to make the decision, rather than have him come up with some bullsh*t excuse to cut funding or suggest a change in staffing.

It was a reaction of a whimpering pussy, and folks can try to defend his poor offended tochis all they want. It comes down to the reaction of a crybaby who can't take criticism, and who would rather play bully behind the scenes, and it points to a decided lack of character. Go ahead and defend a douche if you want, but don't be surprised if folks conflate you with the folks you regularly go to bat for...

If we outlaw the subverting of local control and add more partisanship to the political process only outlaws will subvert local control and add more partisanship to the political process.

I, for one, am shocked that a community college with a president who goes by the nickname "Bud" would be quick to roll over for pressure from a conservative.

Half the fun of being a college radio DJ was that you were almost certain that anyone who was listening was either too drunk to change the station or having sex and not really listening to begin with.
 
2013-04-22 04:42:39 PM
one of the program's hosts criticized Stone's proposals to subvert local control and add more partisanship to the political process.

I don't see how Rep. Stone intends on subverting local control or adding partisanship at all.  No sir, not one bit.

I have ad-block for a reason, it's mostly to block pupups. Yet when I click some links that annoying farking splash screen come up and defeats it. That means you've went around my settings to stop pupups, and make it even worse than before. That's a bit frustrating, so I close the link instead of actually read the article.

I know I shouldn't have to, but is there any setting or further program I must download to automatically kill the new kind of popups?

disabling javascript can help. It'll kill a good bit of content too but that's the price you pay

How political was the show?  Did it just cover politics or did it actively work with a political party?

The general rule is that the government/university can't engage in political acts *themselves."  There's ALWAYS been student political groups, both left and right, at almost every university in the country, running both news papers, tv/radio shows, etc etc.  This is really a non-issue.

When Obama finishes shutting down Rush, I'm sure everyone here will be the first to decry 1st amendment rights, correct? Or is it only bad when the other side does it?

Two days after the initial email, Marchant indefinitely suspended the show. Marchant claimed in an email the suspension had nothing to do with its content.

You've got no stones, Bud.
