Or...the FCC rule limiting free flow engagement has limited its ability to compete with other interactive platforms. What if this engagement occurred on ytube..facebook..or an internet blog...we would call it bullying ..

Come on...the fact hospital screwed up..and attempted to cast blame on the nurse..they are the culpable party.

Even as country audiences tend to be patronized by more sudsy and soppy approaches, Jaye makes the point well. That is, we (radio) have been training our audiences to have certain expectations from different genres of radio.

Indeed, even though crackpot, fraudulent, and sophomoric stunts are pulled out of the rabbit on a regular basis, the kind of cruelty with which this most recent episode has been labeled may be somewhat misplaced and certainly inaccurate.

Given the frailty of radio these days, one might not be so surprised at the desperation exhibited by programmers and performers to attract some attention.

And whoever suggested there was no such thing as "bad publicity" had their heads in entirely the wrong place.
