Radio Jock Holds Abortion 'Contest'

"Earlier this week [of May 15, 2005], shock jock Elliot Segal of Washington, DC's radio station DC101 decided it would be hilarious to hold a contest with a prize for the listener who had the most abortions. While this contest was disgusting by its very nature, the offense was compounded because he held the competition on public airwaves during early morning hours, when people are driving to work and bringing their children to school. The 'contest' featured at least one potential statutory rape, two medical assaults and a number of callers proud of the children they had aborted.

"One caller, identified as K-Dog, proudly asserted that he was responsible for 16 abortions between two different women. K-Dog's second wife called in to proudly verify the 5 abortions she had with him. Graphic descriptions and crude jokes were included. Such depravity has no place on public airwaves.

"DC101's parent company, Clear Channel Communications, won applause last year when it dropped Howard Stern because he was deemed too offensive and controversial. It appears this brief dance with decency was merely a publicity stunt, as Stern alleged at the time.

Thank God we have knobs and buttons on our radios that allow us to turn that kind of garbage off. What worries me is that not enough people out there are changing the station. I feel sorry for those poor bastards.

Frankly, I'd rather not see this on the website. They don't deserve the media attention.

As a former resident of the People's Republic of Montgomery County, MD, I found this story as just another stunt by this loser "Elliot in the Morning". The potential of a nearly 3 hour, 30 mile commute is even more insane with either R + blah blah B, AM news which repeats every nine minutes with CBS breaks, NPR, top 40 Alternative, or DC101. Don't forget his "FUPA" jokes. I found that station more enjoyable while in High School waking up to the "Greaseman" and his joke regarding the first MLKjr day. "Why don't we shoot 4 more and get a whole week off?" Ol' "Grease" didn't last much longer, even with his PSA apologizing for his comments. Funny how history repeated its bizarro self with the untasteful comic depicting Dr. C. Rice late last year as a "Aunt Tom". Elliot blows, unlike the Doggy Daddy P.C.
