Facebook Post Gets Host Suspended
Perhaps another case of a radio host not thinking before using Social Media. And clearly a sign of how quickly you can get into trouble and jeopardize your job when emotions take over logic. WNWS is in Jackson, TN and host Bill Way (pictured) is off the air after he made a Facebook post about President Obama that a lot of people took offense to. Here's a portion of the Way FB post.
"A short message to Obama voters. To vote for him with a 9.2 unemployment rate, $16,000,000,000 in debt and an israeli war, a pimp walking prez married to cheetahs daughter...expect what you will most certainly get. bye bye medicare. hello homeless.. I love America except for the idiots." Way apologized for his comments but it was too little too late. The NAACP quickly jumped in and criticized Way
General Manager Larry Wood told the local newspaper he learned about the comments Way made on his personal Facebook page. "In no way do they reflect the positions or thoughts of any of us at WNWS-FM. We certainly don't condone the comments from Bill and appreciate his public apology. We're discussing his comments and apology. Considering the gravity of the situation, for now, by mutual agreement, Bill is taking a few days off."

I think Carter was out of line actually.

Shame on him. He is old enough and should be professional enough to know and to act better than that. He sounds like he kind of has a brain... but you can never know.

This reminds me of Bob Struble, who used to Tweet all sorts of useful information that I could put on my blog, and share with others. My favorite is when he took Ambien and drove home aaafter taking a red-eye flight, and couldn't remember the drive home. The other is when he boosted about going to NYC to mee with Wall Street:
"iBiquity's President and CEO, Robert Struble, has taken to tweeting. In early September, he revealed he'd taken the train to Wall Street to float the notion of taking iBiquity public: "Good NYC trip. Wall St way more upbeat than recently. IPO pipeline better, but most think [stock market] rally was too fast."
