" Radio slur vs Filipino draws angry reactions" by Cherie M. Q. Moreno


Few Filipino Americans are familiar with Howard Stern, host of a nationally
syndicated radio-television talk show. ... Despite its initial popularity,
the show outlived its novelty and was ultimately canceled.

Filipinos paid more than cursory attention on September 22, however, when
Stern delivered his editorial on Filipinos and the Philippines, in reaction
to the controversy surrounding the Little League team in Zamboanga.

Stern's comments drew outrage from Filipinos in the United States and in
the Philippines. ... Stern's program is aired on WWOR TV. The
mailing address is 9 Broadcast Plaza, Secaucus, NJ 07096 ...

Following is a transcript of remarks by Howard Stern on "The Howard
Stern Show" on Radio KLSX 97 FM on Tuesday, September 22, 1992 at
about 9:45 am

"Filipinos are cheaters and they think playing baseball is the
greatest achievement of all and not knowing the value of the
sport or the purpose of the game. "
(Stern then makes reference to a charity exhibition game he participated
in together with hotel employeees, mostly Filipino, many years back.)
"The Philippines is a very strange country. I always recommend to
everybody not to go there, unless you want to get laid. The Philippines
is a country where fathers sell their own daughters for sex. That's how
desperate they are over there. I think they eat their young over there"

I watched a few of his shows on T.V. when I was in N.Y. I think he gets
paid to offend people. He can consider himself a success. I wonder if it's
worth complaining about these sort of jerks.

Howard Stern is lucky he isn't dead yet.

May araw rin 'yan at pagsisisihan niya ang mga katarantaduhan niya.
(His day will come and he will be sorry for all his stupidities.)

[Stern's insulting comments deleted]

In Mr. Alberts post, he mentioned that Stern is not well known in the
Fil-Am community, so I figure I'll clue you in.

Howard Stern's, quite literally, makes a living off of being obnoxious
and/or controversial. The good news along this line is that he has been
obnoxious for so long that he has ceased to be controversial. He is more
of a caricature today.

Mr. Stern's comments, not only about Filipinos, but about most anything
else that he cares to talk about, show the unfortunate side of living in a
country that cares deeply for the freedom of speech. I still believe that
freedom of speech is worth the price that we pay (i.e. idiots like Stern).

My personal advice is to ignore this clown, but for those truly offended
by his remarks, he is only on the air because people listen to him. If you
write to the above mentioned station to complain, make sure that you imply
that you will not listen to that station because of offensive programming.
If you continue to listen, even though offended, the program still has an
audience, and therefore advertising potential.

The nicest thing about the American broadcast media is that if everyone
ignores something, it will go away.
