OK with the NAB when he was on terrestrial radio...or, at the very least,
the NAB was silent on the issue.  Now that he's on a competing medium,
suddenly he's the devil.  The NAB is as transparent as a piece of glass.

Speaking of shock jocks ... if this goes through, Opie and Anthony (who did
a typically juvenile, scatological -- but often sidesplitting -- critique of
the conference call on their XM channel as the conference call itself was
running on a special-events channel) would find themselves working for Mel
Karmazin again!
