CBS offered $25 million for The Artie Lange Show produced by Gary Dell’Abate

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.”

Report Finds Establishment Media Blatantly In Favor Of Establishment Candidate, Hillary Clinton.

hillary-clintonMedia bias in political coverage is hardly new.

This election appears to be have reached new levels of slanted coverage, one media watchdog says, with a report showing negative news coverage of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump outweighing positive coverage by an overwhelming 11-to-1 margin.

According to the report produced by the Media Research Center, during the evening news shows from July 29th through October 20th, roughly 91% of mentions of Donald Trump were in a negative context on the three major non-cable television networks, ABC, CBS, and NBC. Only 9% of news stories on Trump carried by those three networks were positive towards the Republican nominee.

While the three major TV networks dedicated more than 440 minutes covering Trump’s personal controversies, such as his tax returns and past statements on women, only 185 minutes worth of coverage were used to discuss Clinton’s personal issues, including her email scandal, Benghazi, the Iran deal, her health, arming jihadists, blatant lying, so on.

For example, while the three networks spent a combined 102 minutes digging into comments by Trump regarding women, only 24 minutes were given to news coverage of the ongoing Clinton Foundation scandals.

And despite an official FBI investigation into her use of a private internet server to handle classified government materials, the three TV networks spent just 40 minutes combined discussing the matter, less than half the time used covering Trump’s comments on women 11 years ago.

Voters’ perceptions of media bias in 2016 are closely related to their underlying opinions of Clinton and Trump.

Among voters who have a favorable opinion of Trump, 90% say that the media is biased in favor of Clinton. By contrast, nearly two-thirds of those who view Clinton favorably say the media is not biased toward either candidate, Gallup found.

Among independents and Democrats who perceive bias, large majorities also believe the bias favors Clinton, according to Gallup.
