Artie Lange has a new podcast called Artie Lange’s Halfway House. Artie recently had former Stern Show program director Tim Sabean on the podcast. They discussed their time on the Stern Show and also how CBS made Artie and Bababooey an offer to replace Stern on terrestrial radio back in 2004.
Sabean, Artie, and Lange’s co-host Mike Bocchetti were talking about how The Howard Stern Show went from FM radio to Sirius/XM satellite radio. That’s when Artie revealed that CBS wanted him badly to host his own radio show.
“This is one that hasn’t been discussed a lot at all,” Artie said. “Now for a year, we know we’re leaving regular radio.”
“I get a call from my manager one day, about a year before we leave for satellite,” Lange said. “They wanted me and Gary Dell’Abate — Baba Booey to leave Howard, basically to fuck him over.” CBS Radio executives including Westwood One CEO Joel Hollander wanted “The Artie Lange Show produced by The Howard Stern Show producer Gary Dell’Abate.”
“Being a man, it’s America, I have to find out about this offer,” Lange said. “So the offer was they wanted to give me $5 million a year, for four years, which was way more than I was making on Stern. And guaranteed money, by the way, it would have been $25 million if the show lasted a week.”
“Tim [Sabean] has the awful job of bringing that offer to me,” Artie said. “So I get this offer to fuck over Howard.”
“I immediately said no,” Lange said. “Gary immediately said no.”
“I don’t give a fuck about the money, I made a lot of money, Howard let me do whatever I wanted. I loved Howard,” Lange said on his podcast. “If Howard was giving me a buck a year, I wouldn’t do that to him.”
Dennis Hof, Howard Stern regular guest and Bunny Ranch brothel owner, died Tuesday after his 72nd birthday party, officials said. Dennis was also a Republican candidate for state assembly.
Dennis was in great spirits and told me it was the best night of his life, said pornstar Ron Jeremy.
“We headed back to the Love Ranch South and got there about 11pm. At about midnight, Dennis went back to his private suite with Dasha Dare, she is a relatively new girl to the ranch. It’s the same suite that Lamar Odom overdosed in. Dasha spent two hours with Dennis before leaving him and joining me at the bar with a few other women. Dasha said they had sex and nothing had been wrong with Dennis.
I left the girls and went to bed at around 230am. I got up around 1030am and I was expecting to see Dennis. He is an early riser and we had an event to go to on the campaign that morning. I figured he’d overslept because of the birthday party. I went into his room and he was lying his bed. I shook him by the shoulders, but there was no movement and I thought he was in a deep sleep.
I’ve played a joke on him in the past where I throw off his sheets to wake him up. He was naked and still wasn’t moving. I then went back to the bar and asked the girls for help to wake him up.
I realized something was seriously wrong when we returned. His skin was cold and rigamortis had already begun in his arm. Some of the girls there had CPR training. They called 911 and the operator was telling them to resuscitate him. Dasha was freaking out and praying. One of the house moms had to remove her from the area.” – Ron Jeremy
Dennis Hof had been a Libertarian but decided to register as a Republican in 2016 in response to the success of Donald Trump.
‘It’s all because Donald Trump was the Christopher Columbus for me,’ said Hof after his primary victory in June.
‘He found the way and I jumped on it.’ At the time of his death, Hof had been looking to sell some of his properties to focus on politics.
SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk, also known as the real-life Tony Stark, has done a few live long-form interviews in recent years.
Recently a Twitter user suggested Musk go on Joe Rogan’s podcast and he responded positively to the tweet.
“A lot of people whose judgment I respect have suggested this. Sounds like a good idea. Will do so after Model 3 production reaches 5k/week steady,” said Musk.
Joe Rogan then officially extended a personal invitation via Twitter to Elon Musk last week. “Elon, anytime you’re ready you’ve got an open invitation,” said Rogan to which Musk replied, “Thanks! Have heard universally great things about your podcasts.”
A few days ago the two got together inside Joe Rogan’s studio. The interview started off with Joe asking Musk how he finds time to do everything. They spoke about The Boring Company’s underground tunnel projects and how Musk recently sold 20,000 flamethrowers. Joe brought up robots and artificial intelligence. Both Musk and Rogan are truly worried about AI and the danger of AI.
Humans will one day represent a small percentage of intelligence according to Musk. He thinks it’s important for people to slow down with artificial intelligence. The interview is fascinating, have a listen for yourself below.
Musk ends the interview by expressing that he just wants to make things people love, things that bring them joy, to make the future better. He loves humanity and thinks it’s great unlike many in Silicon Valley, who are racing towards a future in which AI (Artificial Intelligence) replaces humanity.
Joe Rogan, who went after Alex Jones on his podcast while speaking with liberal podcast host Dave Rubin a couple of months back, said that he was unaware of Alex Jones claims that the Sandy Hook shooting was staged, and added that he would’ve confronted Jones about it during his appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience had he known.
More recently, Joe Rogan had singer Shooter Jennings on his podcast and spoke on the Alex Jones situation again. Joe said he can’t have Jones back on his podcast. “[Alex Jones] said that the government threatened my family to stop talking about conspiracy theories.” Alex Jones claims that Eddie Bravo, who is Joe’s close friend, told him that Rogan had been contacted by the CIA to stop talking about conspiracies like pizza gate.
“People sent me the clip. They sent me the clip of [Alex Jones] saying [Sandy Hook] was 100% fake. He thought it was fake so he said it. He thought it was a false flag. That’s a part of the conspiratorial thinking that’s a real problem. Saying you know. He said some shit about me too,” said Rogan.
“If it’s your decision to defend George Soros, then there’s going to be a whole new chapter to our relationship,” Alex Jones said while on the air a few months back when speaking about his “friend” Joe Rogan. “If you become Darth Vader, I’m going to be Obi Wan Kenobi,” added Jones to Rogan. “I’m coming for you, buddy.”
As many of you probably already know, Alex Jones has been deplatformed on social media. Alex Jones’s Infowars.com news website is currently down (at the time this post) from an apparent “cyber attack.” Since our last post, Alex Jones/Infowars have additionally been removed by Pinterest, MailChimp, LinkedIn and porn sites like YouPorn. Big tech companies seemingly working together have now set a precedent banning Jones/Infowars for what they consider hate speech.
Within a 12 hour period, Alex Jones has been deplatformed from Spotify, Apple, YouTube and Facebook virtually simultaneously. Jones was excommunicated from the tech giants’ platforms following a pressure campaign from left-wing political activists and CNN. CNN even went on to publish an article today claiming Infowars.com is complicit in domestic terror.
“The stripping of InfoWars from Facebook, Apple and other platforms is an important step in the recognition of nativist, nationalist and white supremacist hate speech as a form of terrorism.”
Sadly, domestic terrorism, or Jones’ dangerous speech, in which he claims that he is in a holy war against Islam, is not prosecuted under that statute. This is a failing that has permitted the proliferation of platforms such as InfoWars, their presence on popular platforms a legitimization of sorts for their content.
This new decision is a step forward in recognizing that hate outlets, such as InfoWars, are complicit in domestic terror, and a relief to Muslim-Americans, like myself, who have been the target of online assaults and threats.” – Rafia Zakaria, CNN.
With Alex Jones effectively banned from the respectable face of the internet, viewers could still get his content on porn sites like YouPorn.
Not for long. YouPorn jumped on board the hate speech bandwagon late Monday. The site’s vice president Charlie Hughes issued a statement saying:
“Following news that YouTube, Spotify and Facebook have banned Alex Jones from their platforms, team YouPorn is joining in solidarity and announces we are banning his content as well. As one of the largest user-generated content platforms in the world, we have already removed his videos that have violated our terms of service. As an inclusive platform, hate has no place on YouPorn.”
If the powers that be decide to take it to the domain name registrar level, they could effectively strip Jones of the ability to even have his own platform on his own site, by taking away his domain name which is hosted by Name.com. This would not be the first time that a domain has been seized due to hate speech violations. White nationalists websites, The Daily Stormer and Stormfront, had their domains stripped for hate speech violations in 2017.
Microsoft has threatened to cease hosting services for the social media network Gab.ai over two anti-Semitic posts, according to an email published by Gab founder Andrew Torba. The email claims the posts violate Microsoft policy and requests that Gab “promptly take appropriate action to resolve the complaint within two business days” or hosting service will be suspended.
Founded as an alternative for users who were banned by Twitter and Facebook, Gab has long struggled to maintain infrastructure partners in the face of persistent hate speech complaints. Gab’s apps have been dropped from both the iOS App Store and Google Play Store, making the service largely unavailable on mobile devices.
In 2017, Gab was nearly dropped by its domain registrar over a series of posts that violated the provider’s hate speech policy. Could Infowars.com be next to have its domain stripped for hate speech? We think so.
YouTube, Facebook, Spotify, Apple, Pinterest and now Vimeo have removed Infowars content from their platforms. Vimeo is the latest in a growing wave of tech companies to pull videos from former Howard Stern guest and fellow radio host, Alex Jones.
Vimeo suddenly found itself at the center of the on-going Infowars.com debate after the show was barred from a number of competing sites. Earlier in the week, it was host to a handful of Jones-produced videos, but that number jumped suddenly when north of 50 more were uploaded to the service on Thursday and Friday.
“We can confirm that Vimeo removed InfoWars’ account on Sunday, August 12 following the uploading of videos on Thursday and Friday that violated our Terms of Service prohibitions on discriminatory and hateful content. Vimeo has notified the account owner and issued a refund,” a spokesperson told TechCrunch.
The tech companies say they blocked Infowars not because of the conspiracy theories, but because, in Spotify’s words, Infowars “expressly and principally promotes, advocates, or incites hatred or violence against a group or individual based on characteristics.”
Facebook said they were shutting down several of Jones’s pages for “glorifying violence, which violates our graphic violence policy, and using dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants, which violates our hate speech policies.”
“Apple does not tolerate hate speech, and we have clear guidelines that creators and developers must follow to ensure we provide a safe environment for all of our users,” adding, “podcasts that violate these guidelines are removed from our directory.”
Infowars is moving quickly from one platform to the next, as more sites remove their content over “hate speech” violations. Twitter remains steadfast in their decision not to remove Jones, for now.
Update: Jones’ accounts have also been suspended on Pinterest, MailChimp and LinkedIn.
