Talk about FREE HAND? MILTON FRIEDMAN'S ideas taught at the UofC in Chicago and which is a corner stone of todays capitalism is in big trouble and so is any business that the GOVERNMENT idoits find not to measuer up to their "BIG BROTHER" ideas. If this is true, watch out ECONOMY. Here's some from Friday, March 5, 2004 : Howard said he got a call from someone who tells him about what's going on inside the FCC. He said that he heard that the FCC is going to fine him and make it impossible for his company to keep him on. He said he has to get this message out before he's kicked off the air. . . . He said that Clear Channel set him up and threw him to the wolves. He wasn't under any investigation by the government when they kicked him off. There's a congressman out there saying that if Clear Channel got rid of him then Infinity has to do the same to level the playing field. Howard said that no one has gone to court and none of this has been declared indecent yet... Howard said the guy who told him this stuff told him that he was 99 percent sure that the fines would be filed. Howard read an article about it and said that he is one of the targets that the FCC is going after. They're also going to fine Emmis and Clear Channel. Howard said that they're going to reverse their fine over the Bono using the F-word thing. Howard said that the Government is going to do weird, odd tricks to pressure his company to get rid of him. There's nothing that we can do about it either. Howard said that we've already lost and all he's asking is to remember him . . . Howard said that the FCC will probably issue the fines over the weekend. He went on to say that this Senator from Kansas by the name of Brownback, wrote a letter to Mel Karmazin and asked him why he hasn't taken Howard off the air yet. This is a guy who Howard claims, lives with some other politicians in a million dollar townhouse that's paid for by a religious organization. Howard said that this is disturbing to him and anyone living in a place like that has to bow to the pressure of the group. Howard said that the name of the group is The Fellowship. He read an article and said that these guys are out of control. They are in congress and in the senate. He said that the house is valued at $1.1 million and the people living there pay just $600 a month for rent. . . . Howard said that he has inside information from the FCC that says they're going to fine him for something that's 3 years old. He said he will never be given his day in court. He wants people to wake up and see what's going on.
