As a sports fan, i tune into WEEI (run by the same company that operates WRKO) to listen to sports chatter. the problem is — with very few exceptions — the talk show hosts are right-wing republican bigots (over and above the despicable Dennis and Callahan) who get away with unbelievable hate talk masked as humor. no way do i care to hear what those morons have to say about anything political, and yet they spew their hatred all the time.
I once emailed and called Jason Wolfe (then the program director of ‘eei, i believe) to complain about the homophobic rants by Larry Johnson, an African-American minister and ‘EEI co-host, who went on and on one day about the evils of equal marriage. Wolfe defended Johnson because of his so-called “religious beliefs.” I told him if Johnson had said similar things about African-Americans, Jews, Catholics, et al, Wolfe would have fired him immediately. Instead he did absolutely nothing. But as a lesbian, I’m completely outside of EEI’s target audience, so what did he care. I’d love to see a full frontal attack on these guys.
