    Yeah, breaking news from Radar Online, but I am a Stern fan, and the dogged reporting of Steve Langford from Howard 100 news precipitated this:


    If this is true, let it be known that Howard 100 News not only reports on the latest porn star to ride the sybian machine. ;D

    Dumbass. How can you report on an industry, while serving as a consultant in it? Boy between this dope and that Page Six writer who was trying to shake down that billionaire, they've got quite a sharp crew at the NY Post.

    What's the Post's tabloid headline for this clown Mainelli?

    How could the Post not know he was doing consulting? I knew about that, and I don't even work in radio. I thought it was an odd arrangement, but sometimes papers make compromises when they hire people as stringers rather than staffers.

    Hold up, the NYP didn't know that Mainelli works as a consultant?!?!! Shit, if you google "radio consultants" you'll find Mainelli among the first ones there. Hell, the guy has a fucking article in Talker's Magazine that identifies him as a mother fucking consultant, and gives out his contact information.

    Col Allan must be the dumbest, most unaware fucker in all of NYC. How long until he finds out that Bush is a Republican and that Mushnick is a grouch?

    Technically, you can't fire a freelancer -- since they aren't on staff.

    I'm also a huge Stern fan and it was clear from this guy's column that he was a walking conflict of interest...

    Did we ever think we'd see the day where a newsman who is on Stern's payroll got a journalist fired?

    Great stuff...
