According to the Howard Stern
web site, this program aired on October 1, 2008. Howard
Stern is a controversial shock jock with a history of airing racial,
sexual and scatological humor. He has a daily radio program heard
on the Sirius Satellite Network.
The Stern website
posted this description for October first show:
"Howard started off
the show playing a few clips of Sal asking black people if they were
voting for Obama, and attributed all of McCain’s political policies to
Obama to see if they would still vote for him. All the interviewees
readily agreed with Obama when Sal lied to them about his pro-life,
anti-stem-cell research and pro-war policies. Howard said the clips were
revealing, and Sal came in to say he thought the election had become
less about ideas and, instead, some kind of race war."
Of the three people
questioned, two said they are voting for Obama because he is Pro-Life,
two said they are voting for Obama because he wants to stay in Iraq and
finish the war and one because Obama is against stem cell research.
All said that they had no problem with Sarah Palin being vice president.
Owing to the comedic
nature of his radio program it is hard to take seriously anything Howard
Stern airs on his show. From a technical viewpoint, the audio
consists of three people being interviewed in Harlem but there is no
to tell what has been edited out or how many people caught the radio
trickster in the act. The
question is whether these were edited and were the only
audio clips among
many that fit what
Stern wanted to portray.
The audio is posted in
various blogs and YouTube sites.
