Smut Subsidized Journalist Would Like To Remind You WFAN Is In The Gutter

* Saturday, 11 a.m., WFAN airs an ad for “Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club,” replete with “VIP Rooms” and a “6-9 Happy Hour.” Immediately — and appropriately — following that spot, came a promo for the “Boomer and Carton Show.” And moments after that, a commercial for this-is-not-a-drill! Carnival Cruise Lines. – Phil Mushnick, “Equal Time”, NY Post, March 18, 2013

Given space limitations, Phil can be excused from mentioning, for instance, that when his paymasters aren’t bugging phones and revealing the names of teenage rape victims, they’ve not previously been reluctant to surround his virtuous column with print advertisements for establishments very similar to Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club.

However, if Phil objects to such commercial enticements being aired at 11am on a Saturday morning, I share his outrage. You don’t have to be Mary Whitehouse to know that WFAN is wildly popular with impressionable young children, all of whom consider the likes of Richard Neer and Steve Somers to be bigger role models than their own parents (look it up).
