    Times of Israel ^ | July 23, 2014 | Jessica Steinberg
    There’s one celebrity out there who’s defending Israel right now. But forget social media for a minute, this is on the radio. “Shock jock,” DJ Howard Stern, gave Hanzi, his regular Pakistani caller, an earful last week about the current situation in Gaza. Stern, who now broadcasts from Sirius satellite radio, has always been known for his foul mouth and strident opinions. His longtime cohost, Robin Quivers, alternately reins him in and goads him on.

    "If you’re anti-Israel, then you’re anti-America. It’s the only democracy over there, it’s the only friend we have who’s willing to fight and stand up for what’s right." Stern: People forget history. Jews were being executed and killed, and they went over to Israel, this little sh*thole, which was a desert—it had nothing going on.

    No inheritance for Anderson! CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, who comes from the Vanderbilts, one of the wealthiest families in American history, said Monday, March 31, that he will not be receiving any fortune from his mother Gloria Vanderbilt. "My mom's made clear to me that there's no trust fund," Cooper told Howard Stern on his radio show. "There's none of that." Cooper's mom is the great-great-granddaughter of railroad and shipping mogul Cornelius Vanderbilt. Still stunning at 90 years old, the Manhattan socialite and former denim designer is reportedly worth a whopping $200 million. Gloria's equally-successful son, however, told Stern he...

    After FCC commissioners announced they have reached a deal to approve the merger of Sirius (NASDAQ:SIRI) and XM (NASDAQ:XMSR), Stern ranted about Democrats’ ‘gangsterism’ and ‘communism’ and the obstacles to the merger.

    Movie producer Harvey Weinstein announced for the first time on Howard Stern’s radio show that he is making a full feature drama to try to destroy the National Rifle Association. Mr. Stern asked Mr. Weinstein on Wednesday whether he owned a gun. The Hollywood heavyweight replied that he did not and never would. “I don’t think we need guns in this country. And I hate it,” the producer said. “I think the NRA is a disaster area.” Mr. Weinstein then revealed his secret project about the gun rights group. “I shouldn’t say this, but I’ll tell it to you, Howard,”...

    Simon Cowell and Howard Stern apprently have more in common than just expressing how they truly feel about things. According to Forbes, which just released its list of the highest-paid TV personalities, each of them pulled in the most money between June 2012 and June 2013. In fact, Cowell and Stern tied for the top spot, both with estimated earnings of $95 million. Not too far behind is another outspoken individual. Conservative talk show host Glenn Beck, whose Internet program The Blaze has been a huge hit since it debuted in 2011, raked in an estimated $90 million to place...

    ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Just back from his part-time home in Mexico, former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura dangled the idea Friday that he could run for the U.S. presidency in 2016. Ventura eagerly volunteered the possibility while at Minnesota's Capitol -- and pushed back against skepticism that he would re-enter the political fray after being out of office since 2003. It's hardly the first time the publicity savvy Ventura has broached the idea he would run for the White House or Senate, only to pass on a campaign. He said the next race is "an opportune time" for an independent...

    Howard Stern contributors Sal and Richard travel to Harlem to interview Obama supporters and ask them why they are voting for Obama. Stern and his crew ask denizens of Harlem various outrageous questions, including if they believe Obama will find and kill Osama bin Laden; if Romney is a Muslim and if Obama is a Mormon; if Obama made the right choice by picking Paul Ryan as his running mate and if he did it because he is black. One interviewee was under the impression that 2008 Republican nominee John McCain is also running this time.

    Howard Stern said this before Sharon Bialek fairly credibly detailed her alleged encounter with Herman Cain, so the shock jock might not be of the same opinion now. But this YouTube clip from a recent episode of Stern’s Sirius/XM radio show is fun to listen to for another reason: It starts with a soundbite of Cain himself singing a parody of John Lennon’s “Imagine.” Cain’s version envisions a world without pizza. Imagine the Cain campaign with no taint of sexual harassment allegations. Remember when he impressed us with his “Impossible Dream,” when he reassured a shell-shocked audience with an improvised...

    Via Breitbart TV. Given Stern’s reach and the otherwise adoring coverage of OWS, this may well be the biggest PR hit the movement’s taken so far. People are buzzing about this Quinnipiac poll out today showing that a heavy majority of New Yorkers agree with “the protesters’ views” — whatever those might be — but the numbers are a fait accompli. In the 2008 election, Brooklyn broke 79/20 for Obama; Manhattan 85/14; and the Bronx 88/11. So long as the protesters babble feelgood platitudes about “economic justice” and take care to ruin the quality of life only for those residents/businesses...

Bennett said: “Who’s the terrorist? Are they the terrorists or are we the terrorists? Two wrongs don’t make a right.” He later added, “They flew the plane in" but "we caused it" because "we were bombing them and they told us to stop."

After Bronk interrupted Weiner's speech with a barrage of questions — "Will you maintain your hot physique and smooth sexy chest?" — he was escorted out by police, who, Bronk revealed, actually laughed while hauling him out because they were huge fans of the Stern show. While outside, Bronk was surrounded by different media outlets who wanted to find out where he was from and why he was shouting...

    Yes, But, However! ^ | January 15, 2011 | John Romano
    Satellite radio host Howard Stern went on a profanity laced anti-Sarah Palin rant this week. Mr. Stern took issue with videotaped remarks Ms. Palin made calling for calm in light of the shootings last week in Tucson. Mr. Stern also had nothing but high-praise for President Obama calling his speech in Tucson “magnificent”. Mr. Stern’s main issue with Palin is a map used by a website affiliated with her political action committee “SarahPAC”. Mr. Stern’s premise is faulty. He states that Ms. Palin used an image with a “big scope” over Ms. Giffords face which implied to him that someone...

    Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA), who is facing a likely primary rematch with his 2004 opponent Pat Toomey, has picked up a high-profile endorsement: Howard Stern, The Hill reports, after Specter appeared on the Stern show. Howard offered to write Specter a check, which Specter accepted, and then the two of them encouraged all the listeners to contribute, too. This makes sense in many ways, really. Stern's own politics match up pretty well with Specter, as Stern is an economic conservative and cultural liberal (okay, make that cultural libertine). That, and Howard has a proven record of endorsing politicians who have...

In an Arabic-language broadcast Wednesday on WNZK 680/690 AM, the Rev. Zakariah Boutros said the Muslim prophet Muhammad had engaged in necrophilia and gay sex, according to the Council on American Islamic Relations. Boutros has previously come under fire from area Muslims, who say he disparages Islam. The controversial, American-based priest...

    This interview goes to Harlem in NYC and asks people on the street who they support in the Presidential election. The interesting twist is that the interviewer asks if they support certain positions, but gives John McCain's positions. In some cases, they are asked if they support Obama's selection of Sarah Palin for the VP slot. They all said: "Yes". While is isn't politically correct to say so, I'd say there are a few racists in Harlem.

    NEW YORK — Sirius Satellite Radio (SIRI) paid shock jock Howard Stern a bonus worth nearly $83 million on Tuesday for surpassing subscriber goals set in a 2004 contract that had already turned heads with its $500 million compensation package. The freewheeling and ribald Stern joined Sirius one year ago... His defection marked a turning point for the nascent business of satellite radio, with both Sirius and larger rival XM Satellite Radio (XMR) paying millions more to sign on other talent and attract listeners to their subscriber model. Sirius had roughly 600,000 subscribers when it signed Stern in 2004 for...

    Long before they were competing shock jocks on opposition satellite radio networks, XM's Opie and Anthony and Sirius' Howard Stern worked for the same radio company in New York. And it wasn't much fun, Opie and Anthony say during an interview airing at 9 tonight on the Fox News Channel's Hannity & Colmes. ''The guy made our lives miserable when we worked for Infinity Broadcasting,'' Anthony says. ``He put a gag order on us so we couldn't talk about him. He didn't like somebody else being successful in his city, in New York. His home base. [Even though] we were...

    HOWARD Stern says he's been offered a "major deal" to come back to regular radio via satellite radio - just like his longtime enemies Opie & Anthony. "The joke could be on them if I get good and worked up [because] I got offered a major deal to go back to terrestrial and stay on satellite at the same time," Stern told his Sirius listeners in comments replayed and mocked yesterday by "O&A." "Can you imagine if I go across town against them in all those markets and just kick some a-? That would really be cool," said Stern, who...

    he FCC on Friday would neither confirm nor deny that it is investigating reports of interference from some satellite radio receivers that are reportedly relaying their signals inadvertently to FM receivers in nearby automobiles. An article in Friday's Baltimore Sun details how some motorists are accidentally picking up channels offered by Sirius and XM on their car radio. The incidents generally occur when the motorists are tuned to a station between 88.1 MHz and 89.9 FM — frequencies reserved for noncommercial, religious or educational stations. Aftermarket satellite receivers generally employ these lower FM frequencies, and the receivers use an analog...

    Well, that didn't take long. Rocker-turned-radio host David Lee Roth, who accepted the no-win task of replacing ratings king Howard Stern in January, was bounced from the airwaves Friday after barely three months on the air in New York, Philadelphia, Boston and four other markets. "I was booted, tossed, and it's going to cost somebody," Roth said on his last show, intimating that his lawyers would go after CBS Radio for the full compensation due from his reported $4 million contract. The timing of the move was interesting: It arrived just days before the Roth show's first Arbitron numbers. CBS...

    They're coming back by popular demand. Ok, make that corporate radio's desperate attempt to save its failing radio content and its stations' revenue after departure of the King. The one-time Boston radio bad boys Greg "Opie" Hughes and Anthony Cumia will return to Boston's WBCN 104.1FM airwaves as early as next Wednesday(4/26) morning. Meanwhile, after three long months former Van Halen lead man David Lee Roth is finally scheduled to wrap up his so-called 15-minute radio career tomorrow (Friday 4/21). This afternoon, Billboard Magazine has provided details on Opie and Anthony's return to broadcast radio and a reunion with their...

    DLR DeathWatch '06 Back On? We've all been hearing rumors of David Lee Roth's radio demise for a while, but now (Radio And Records Street Talk) is hearing it's a matter of when -- not if -- CBS Radio, frustrated with Dave's inability and/or unwillingness to play nice with management, will finally be forced to pull the plug. There is strong speculation that we could we see heads roll sooner rather than later -- perhaps after the winter (ratings) book hits next Wednesday? Then again, we could be massively full of crap, but somehow we seriously doubt it this time....

    New York -- Howard Stern is angry more fans haven't followed him to satellite radio. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the 52-year-old shock jock lashes out at those of his fan base who haven't made the transition to Sirius Satellite Radio. In January, Stern moved his popular and bawdy morning show to the subscription satellite radio provider. "I was just at my psychiatrist and I said, `I just got great news: We hit the 4 million mark.
