NEW YORK POST AND FOX NEWS VS SIRIUS

SIRIUS and Stern make front page of NY Post. According to a page 1 article in the New York Post on Monday (Jan. 23), Sirius Satellite Radio is developing standards-and-practices guidelines to create content boundaries for the likes of Howard Stern and other talk jocks.

“It’s something that’s being taken very seriously,� a so-called Sirius source told the Post.

The Post quoted Robert Thompson, from the Center for the Study of Popular Television, at Syracuse, who said, “I believe this is just an attempt to put things in place if and when the government turns up the heat on satellite radio, much like it has with cable from time to time. In the end, it won’t mean much to the average listener or advertiser.�

GSI is told that SIRIUS has no such standards-practices guidelines for content boundaries. The only “Standards� in place at SIRIUS is to provide its subscribers the best and most original programming.

UPDATE
IT IS ALSO VERY VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE THE NEW YORK POST IS OWNED BY RUPERT MURDOCH... This is just more in the SIRIUS VS FOX NEWS battle.. Howard said today, "Fox and friends were drumming up a false story to stir up the Christian right and to build outrage for a service that is as Constitutionally protected as porn movies in hotels, cable television or Playboy magazine."

??Could this story be done by Murdoch to get back at SIRIUS for dumping FOX News??

The Post also reported that Stern's show was on tape delay, and has been censored, something Stern admitted. He pulled the plug on comments by one of his cast, that he feared could be slanderous, or an invasion of privacy.

Based on Monday's show, and a profane four-letter comment by Alexis Stewart, daughter of Martha, that has become the show's first new soundclip, there was no sign of censorship for language.

Fox seems to be the only ones to play it up; trying to get even for Sirius not giving in to their price. They even had Chaunce Heyden on the Cavuto show making outlandish remarks about Sirius and Stern.
