Well… normally I almost always agree with Howard when he bashes some one on air. This time he is just making me incensed. Both he and Robin are really really irritating me- almost to the point where I wanted to turn off the radio. I can honestly see a side to Howard I have never seen before- very passive aggressive and Diva like.
I do admire Howards Stern’s work ethic, However is is just way off base on the piling on of his staff for staying with their homes and families. After telling his staff to make the decision that was best and SAFEST for their families. So say that and mean it.
Its an effing radio show. To lambast your staff for staying home with scared wives and small children is really weird and shows you how out of touch he and robin are with the Real World. Maybe this is why his first marriage failed- putting the show above his family and children. This was a major storm and their were all kinds of prediction about how awful it would be.
I guess I am not so pissed about him being ticked staffers stayed home- it was that he said one thing and meant another. You cant suck and blow at same time. You can tell people to stay at home if they need to then BLAST them for doing so.
So either say you will be pissed or say you wont be and mean it.
Really an ugly side of Howard that changed my opinion of him. I think he has a mean streak that borders on abusive.
I am listening to re-run now going off on Doug Goodstein. Listing how he wanted to stay home and was worried about his family too.. that he had young children once, BLAH BLAH BLAH.
Now hearing that Beth ASKED him to stay home and he didn’t. I can tell you that probably did more damage to her trust and faith in him that he realizes.
Now Robin going on about protecting family- WOW. Sometimes you need to be there and comfort them.
Our power was out for most of the storm and I can tell you they need me to keep them calm. Robin and Howard thinking like idiots and look stupid keeping on this track.
