    The media has cultivated the image of Joe Biden as a kindly, sagacious, calm grandfather. Some venues become utterly sycophantic. Daily Kos: Joe Biden needs to be the Grandfather for All and welcome the People into the process of participation and action. He has the wisdom of age and the resources of his Presidency. Go to work, Joe - speak to the needs, offer practical ideas, listen to what the People know, and then problem-solve together. Open yourself to a changing America that reflects participation, transparent views, and actions that inspire local involvement under the umbrella of inclusivity and democratic...

    Richard Belzer, a comedian known for his role as cynical “Law & Order” detective John Munch, has died at 78 — his last words as edgy as his long career: “F— you, motherf—er.” Belzer died early Sunday at his home in the South of France, his pal and writer Bill Scheft told The Hollywood Reporter. The actor played the role of Munch on multiple shows, including “Homicide: Life on the Street” and “Law & Order: SVU,” and had cameos in other shows like “The X Files.” “He had lots of health issues, and his last words were, ‘F–k you, motherf–er,’”...

  • John Bolton says Trump wouldn't have stood in Putin's way if a Russian invasion of Ukraine had happened during his term

    "Well, I'm not sure he would have done much of anything, frankly," Bolton said in an interview with Vice published March 1, responding to a question about what Trump might have done had Russia attacked Ukraine while he was president. "But you never know with Trump. It depends on what time of day it is, it depends on what he thought his political benefit would be at any given moment. I don't think ultimately he would have stood in Putin's way," Bolton told Vice. Bolton said he thought Trump's glorification of Putin was "embarrassing for the United States." He also...

    Howard Stern says he could launch a White House bid in 2024 against former President Trump, quipping he knows he'll "beat his ass." The SiriusXM host said Tuesday that running for president could be his "civic duty" if Trump, who has repeatedly floated but not confirmed a 2024 bid, was to seek a second term. “I would just sit there and play that f---ing clip of him trying to fix the election, over and over again,” Stern said, referring to Trump's phone call in January with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, in which the then-president sought to persuade him...

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. Stern described a phone conversation he had with his agent, who he described as a “liberal Democrat kind of guy.” “I go, ‘That’s it!’” Stern said. “[I] go, ‘You know what Don, I’ve voted Republican and I’ve voted Democrat....

    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...

    NEW YORK - Sirius Satellite Radio Inc. reported Tuesday that its first quarter loss more than doubled, due largely to expenses of $225 million in stock-based compensation to its star shock jock Howard Stern. Revenue nearly tripled as the company expanded its subscriber base. Sirius reported a net loss of $458.5 million, or 33 cents a share, for the January-March period compared with a loss of $193.6 million, or 15 cents a share, a year ago. By far the largest factor affecting the results was costs for stock-based compensation, which all companies had to begin recording this year under new...

    Sirius Satellite Radio Inc., which liberated radio shock jock Howard Stern from the federal decency standards that he felt had shackled him, is finding that freedom's just another word for $500 million to lose. Since Jan. 9, when Stern debuted on Sirius, pirated versions of the shows have been made available for free via several online file-sharing networks just hours after Stern signs off. The New York-based broadcaster signed Stern to a five-year, half-billion-dollar contract in 2004.

    Howard Stern will cost Sirius Satellite Radio significantly more than initially forecasted, according to Banc of America Securities analyst Jonathan Jacoby. Stern's actual compensation will be close to $670 million, not the $500 million previously estimated, Jacoby said. "To reach break-even on Stern, we estimate Sirius requires 2.4 million incremental subscriptions," Jacoby wrote in a recent report cited on Forbes.com. The previous break-even mark was approximately 1.5 million. An early 2006 surge in sales of Sirius hardware is now starting to fall off despite the continuation of price discounting, according to Jacoby, who reiterated a "sell" rating on Sirius.
