Hendrie Not On Board With TRN Lawsuit

9-6-2012

You don't often hear about a syndicated radio personality taking a shot at the company that syndicates him. However, this is Phil Hendrie. Hendrie's been around awhile, always speaks his mind about the radio business, and isn't one to go along with the crowd. 

Hendrie, who's syndicated by Talk Radio Network, has issued a statement about the lawsuit the company recently filed against Dial Global. When asked last night why he was making a statement on the lawsuit, Hendrie told Radio Ink, "it's my constitutional right to do so."

In his statement, he said “I’d like to make it very clear that TRN does not represent my views and I certainly don’t need them ‘standing up’ for me in regard to this lawsuit, which I don’t support.  My livelihood is not dependent on TRN.”

Upon reviewing Talk Radio Networks’ recent lawsuit filed against several radio companies and individuals, Phil Hendrie took exception to section 60 which states, “Today, by bringing this Action, Plaintiffs stand not only for themselves, but also for every smaller independent syndicator, network or programming producer, and for the hosts, producers, technicians and other Americans whose livelihoods are dependent upon these independent syndicators.”

TRN CEO Mark Masters could not be reached for comment by the time we went to print with this story.

Well it just goes to show that people that have no idea what they are talking about are once again talking shit about Phil and TRN. Phil has good reason for his words and TRN has stations with much higher transmitter outputs but Im sure you fucks have no idea what makes a light bulb work.

Phil Hendrie has to delete the comments of useres like Mojo's; it's because your comments are always one after another after another, as we can see you've already posted 2 in a row already.

The First Amendment prevents the government from denying you the right to free speech - it does not have anything to do with how citizens react to each other's comments. That is, it isn't a violation of the First Amendment if someone deletes your comments from a forum. You are free to start your own forum or website and express yourself - the Constitution doesn't mean you are allowed to do so on my dime.

Oops! I didn't clarify in the post below that Phil deletes comments that are critical of him or his show. Naturally he doesn't touch praise, but if he doesn't like what you have to say he will censor the comments and kick you off his site with no warning.

Great way to treat his fans! So much for freedom of speech.
