Howard Stern Ads 'Disrespectful,' Priest Says

Thursday, January 05, 2006

Just got to love all the free press from this:
A Chicago priest took on radio megastar Howard Stern, bringing down a pair of billboards that promoted the shock jock's widely publicized switch to satellite radio. The priest claimed the ads were insensitive to African-Americans.
According to The Chicago Defender, the billboards featured a confrontational black fist raised in the air against a white background along with the caption, "Let freedom ring. And let it be rung by a stripper."
The billboards infuriated the Rev. Michael Pfleger, pastor of Chicago's St. Sabina's Church. Father Pflegler protested the ads, claiming they were an improper attempt to connect Stern to the late Rev. Martin Luther King.
"I've been contacted by Sirius Radio company, and I have gotten a whole bunch of hate-mail from Howard Stern's group of listeners," Fr. Pfleger told the newspaper. "They have questioned how I can be for civil rights, yet try to stifle free speech. I have no problem with free speech. I am a proponent of free speech.
