KSFO/Hate Speech/Spocko/Corporate Lawyers

You are listening to the radio and you hear inciteful hate speech, insinuating that for example a prominent politician has a bull's eye painted on her, or that millions of Indonesians be killed solely for being of Muslim faith.

Let's say you decide to notify some of the companies that choose to buy advertising time on this radio station... you tell them some of the things you've heard and as proof you send sound-files so they can hear it for themselves.

Just suppose that some of those companies have actual mission statements that forbid things like racist hate speech, and one or two or more of those companies pull their advertising from that radio station.

Then you get a cease-and-desist letter from the radio station's corporate lawyers.

This is the story of Spocko.

This is just my own little way of proclaiming "Hey, what is it with all those Jews in the boxcars?!"

Just saying.

Spocko's Brain was offline for a couple days, but he's back up with more, so I changed the link.
