I could not believe it when I heard the mess about Dr Laura. She tried to prove a point that the âN-wordâ was just a word âŚ then she used it on the air several times. It didnât work and now she is quitting her radio show.
Iâm a radio guy. I know many âradio guys.â None of us would ever say the âN-wordâ on the air. Never. Itâs just one of those words that we do not say. You know George Carlinâs â7 Dirty Wordsâ comedy bit? Weâll there are actually more than 7.
So when I heard through a news cast that Dr Laura tried to prove a point and she actually used the word, that was plain dumb. Letâs make this clear, this is not a freedom of speech thing as Dr Laura tried to imply in a Larry King interview announcing her retirement. This was just plain dumb.
I work in an industry where freedom of speech is key to us. Dr Laura could have presented her point in a better light.
What do you think?
