    Pretty much every week.

    Just like I used to eat Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream pretty regularly until their parent company started supporting groups like The Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence. Now I won't touch the stuff, nevermind spend money on it.

    This isnt even remotely clever - as I am sure even -you- know, the issue isn't an exception to the cricism of the OFFICE.

    Country radio didnt boycott TDC because they spoke poorly of the President, they boycotted them because they spoke poorly of GWB, who their audience, more often than not suppoeted -- its amazing what a station amamger will do when he gets repeated call about 'if you play any more of their music, I'll never listen to you again'.

    The support for The Obama among country listeners is, quite likely and put generously, considerbly lower - so there's little to no reason for the radio stattions to change HWJR's limited rotation.

    The government penalized him for his statement?

    How was his 1st Amendment rights violated? Only a govt. entity can violate someone's 1st Amendment rights.

    Thanks, Hank, for calling a spade a spade. ESPN owes you a huge apology.
    ah, nothing like Wednesday morning lies.

    Unlikely....I don't think the vast majority of people turning on MNF do so to listen to HW Jr......just sayin.
