XM Satellite Slits Own Throat

by Azreel | May 20th, 2007

In a stunning move, the non-FCC regulated XM Satellite Radio has suspended Opie and Anthony for their sexual comments about Condeleeza Rice, Queen Elizabeth, and Laura Bush.

Outraged listeners have gathered to cancel their subscriptions and, in a surprising move, advertisers have pulled their ads from XM in support of O&A. Sponsors in the past have pulled out to distance themselves from a shock jock, but in an unprecedented move, advertisers on XM have pulled out to distance themselves from the actions of the company against shock jocks O&A.

Lou Galli of Nashville Coffee said “It is apparent that XM Radio is beholden to crybaby special interest groups who cannot separate humor from reality … It is also unfortunate that XM Radio executives don’t have the guts to stand up for their on-air talent.”
