Why does this have anything to do with whether Stern deserves "sympathy" or is still any good at his show?
I guess because the topic opened the conversation up. And it just shows that Stern continues to be controversial (if in a different fashion). I don't know if he's gone Hollywood - I've heard him make some pretty strong statements about people like Sheen and Jay Leno and politicians. And I've heard them make some very good conversation about a number of topics. Stern has never been the "let's diss celebrities" show. Is it possible, to quote an earlier post, that he's best buds with Regis because Regis hasn't done anything particularly stupid lately?
