Russ Limbaugh...??....more than likely....

**************************************

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — City Council members took a step closer on Wednesday to becoming the first in the nation to adopt a resolution condemning certain types of speech on public airwaves.

Councilmember Jan Perry introduced legislation that would call upon media companies to ensure “on-air hosts do not use and promote racist and sexist slurs” on radio and other broadcasts.

Members of Black Media Alliance, National Hispanic Media Coalition, Korean-American Bar Association, American Indians in Film and Television and attorney Gloria Allred were on hand to voice their support for the proposal.

This is why Americans despise liberals.

Americans do not like Stalin-ism in Washington or on the local city council..

Of course racist only by their definition. They surely won’t ban comedians that use the N word all the time if they are in protected classes. This is doomed to failure as are all attempts at controlling free speech. What morons!

The lifeblood of Talk Radio is free speach, and all the hosts know that.

Let Rush teach KFI a lesson by moving his show to another station.

Let ALL OTHERS observe the change in fortunes, and make it really, really hurt.

I want to see the list...

Placing bets that ‘cracker’ ‘white trash’ and the like will not make the list.

These days we need laws to regulate EVERYTHING because we need something to replace the modicum of civility that once existed and helped dictate decent behavior.

I think this is more about John and Ken than Rush. They have been a thorn in the lefts side for years. Gray Davis recall, telling the city about the outrageous pay of a area board members.

Way to many things to list here that they have drawn attention to and helped.

And the free-market system. If the audience wanted more "diversity", it would already be there.

Guess they will have to ban all Hip Hop and liberal programing in that town since that is where they will find most of the slurs being made. Sounds like a good idea to me.

If the resolution passes, I hope KFI plays a few “bitches and hos” from various rap artists.

I guess they limit to on-air host so they don’t have to condemn hip hop and rap music.

Hip hop and rap are art give the youth an outlet for their frustrations with the racist society that oppresses them. On-air host commentary is just intolerant talk (they are primarily far right wingers who promote violence you know).

Here is the sarcasm tag just to be sure /S

Yes, real Americans hate liberals. Unfortunately, a huge percentage of voters are hyphenated-Americans, parasites, losers, goofballs, and humorless, America-hating malcontents.

They might as well just cut out the middle-man and make all broadcasting a government function so you only hear big-brother approved messages.

Gloria must have an over-due house payment.

Yeah, why can’t they stick to “Dumb Blonde” jokes?

Why do they have to do sexist and racist jokes about ‘nappy headed’ women and ‘crack hos’...

John and Ken are a service to the people of Los Angeles. They help protect the people from the government.

They do this, by making the city council, school board, the union controlled state government look bad.

This is the reaction they get.

Such a law would be quickly overturned and likely to cost the City a lot of money.

Clear violation of the first amendment.

Prediction, the city council will huff and puff and then cave in.

So are they going to include rappers who use the N-word or the B-word in every sentence?

I wish someone would ban the "Moist Line" feature on John & Ken's Friday show. Totally inane and every other word is bleeped out.

I turn the radio off at 6.05 and 6.35 on Friday evenings.

Soon won't be a problem - baseball in three weeks!
