"... or why most things like relationships with friends, ect., ect., ect. are told to people, cannot be talked about (debated)."
This is just one reason why Siri stock is worth so much more than $1.43... Like Stern or not, he totally changed the way I communicate with people. (I used to be much more passive.)
He talks about things that people just don't feel comfortable talking about...but are thinking or may have never thought about. This is huge for people that grew up in environments where people just didn't communicate.
It is ear and eye opening. Crude as some may find him, he has honed his craft over the years and really digs deep into people's minds. As a result, there are a lot of people that used to hate him who now love him. It is often just a matter of them hearing him for a little while and being able to see it as satire (like All in the Family). I actually thought he was a buffoon when I first saw him on Letterman 20 years ago. Then in 1993 I was scanning the dial and heard an insanely honest and hilarious interview with James Brown. I was hooked.
Anyway I could go on and on, but the bottom line is that the FCC prevented Infinity and CBS from acquiring more stations to get Stern on due to fines, etc. Now that he will be available nationwide to people who would not subscribe for him, we are likely to get a lot more accidental fans. We just need to get interoperable receivers in new cars asap.
