  • BOYCOTT KFI? (Palin-bashing pro-gay flake Handel losing it)

    Time to start pushing back, against the media left. KFI morning flake Bill Handel, has gone completely nutjob in his hatred toward Sarah Palin. It's infuriating. His beef? He doesn't have one. He's just another pro-gay Palin basher. Who's fortunate enough to have the time slot directly in front of Rush Limbaugh, in a huge market. Otherwise, he would be nothing. Handel's frothing pro-gay positions seem (clearly) based on conflict of interest, to advance one of his off-air businesses: collecting large amounts of money from gay "couples" for what is called evidently called surrogate parenting. Time to push back, he's...

    The Radio Equalizer: Brian Maloney ^ | June 22, 2006 | Brian Maloney
    In Southern California, conservative radio has reached a new ratings high: first place. That would be KFI-AM we're talking about, home of Rush Limbaugh and morning host Bill Handel. With an overall share of 4.9 revealed in the lastest monthly Arbitron trend report, KFI has rocketed into the number one position, surpassing Spanish language formats and FM music stations. As far as we can tell, it's the first time this has occurred in Los Angeles.

    The Radio Equalizer- Brian Maloney ^ | February 9th, 2006 | Brian Maloney
    Why does the Radio Equalizer have an uneasy feeling we've yet to hear the last of this ugly situation? Very quietly yesterday, the ongoing flap between the Council on American Islamic Relations and KFI/Los Angeles radio talk host Bill Handel was apparently "resolved", via personal and official station apologies to CAIR. As we previously wrote: Almost appearing to relish the idea of a full-blown battle with CAIR, Handel kicked off the latest controversy with cracks about the stampede-related deaths of hundreds during the annual hajj pilgrimage to Mecca. And, from our previous interview with Handel: RE: Are you confident they'll...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Muslim civil rights group said Wednesday it has received an apology from the host of a Los Angeles radio show for making fun of a stampede that killed hundreds of Muslims during an annual pilgrimage. The Council on American-Islamic Relations demanded an apology from KFI-AM 640 host Bill Handel after he made fun of the deaths of at least 363 Muslims during the Jan. 12 stampede. According to CAIR, Handel imitated the people screaming and then joked that the pilgrims should use a helicopter to monitor pilgrimage traffic as is done in Los Angeles with...

    Charleston City Paper ^ | February 2, 2006 | Michael Graham
    I offer the following recent news items, in no particular order: The Council on American-Islamic Relations is demanding an apology from a Los Angeles talk show host for making fun of Muslims. In reference to the oft-repeated spectacle of Muslim pilgrims stampeding each other to death during the Hajj, KFI’s Bill Handel suggested the annual Hajj should feature a “Hajj In The Sky” traffic copter. This is a joke. It is not allowed. On Monday, armed Muslim gunmen stormed an office of the European Union in Gaza, in protest of a series of editorial cartoons in a Danish newspaper. The...

    LOS ANGELES - A Los Angeles radio personality said Monday he would apologize for an on-air skit that made fun of the deaths of hundreds of Muslims, but only if an Islamic civil rights group denounces terrorism and acknowledges Israel's right to exist. The Council of American Islamic Relations demanded the apology last week after KFI 640 host Bill Handel made fun of the deaths of at least 363 Muslims during a stampede at an annual pilgrimage in Mecca. According to CAIR, Handel imitated the people screaming and then joked that the Muslims at the pilgrimage should use a helicopter...

    MANAGEMENT STATEMENT KFI-AM does not condone making light of the deaths of people engaged in religious observances. We regret that listeners found the comments of one of our on-air hosts to be insensitive. KFI does not censor its hosts, nor does it tell them what to say or not to say. KFI is a strong and passionate believer in 1st amendment rights and that is at the very core of this radio station. http://kfi640.com/main.html http://www.kfi640.com/audio/HandelCAIRResponse-013006.mp3

    CAIRO, 6 July 2004 — Islamophobia is alive and well in the US, starting with the authorities down to individuals such as radio talk show host Jay Severin who, according to the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) claimed that Muslims want to take over America even if it takes centuries, adding “I’ve got an idea. Let’s all kill Muslims”. Amazingly Severin is still in his job, although he has been forced to apologize on air. CAIR has also filed complaints over an offensive skit on the March 10 Bill Handel show on KFI AM 640 entitled “the New Iraqi...
