I used to love to listen to Radio Q, and Jian Ghomeshi's interviews with rock stars, authors, etc. It was on public Canadian radio out of Toronto. Then he was accused of being violent towards several different girlfriends, fired from his show, and put on trial. He claimed he was into "rough sex," but what was described did not come across as consensual to me. Three women testified against him. He hired a female lawyer known for ruthlessness, who basically put the women testifying against him on trial. So now he was found not guilty. What does everyone think? I have mixed feelings, but I usually believe that women don't put themselves through the trauma of a trial unless something pretty bad happened. http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_factor/2016/03/24/jian_ghomeshi_found_not_guilty_of_sexual_assault_in_shocking_proclamation.html
I thought you folks might be interested in this interview with Megan Phelps, formerly of Westboro Baptist Church. It was on the radio as I was driving home from work today. I was pleased to hear this on a mainstream news programme here in the UK. http://bbc.in/1Tq38yZ
Reno â€“ There are not many companies, as of late, willing to advertise on Rush Limbaughâ€™s syndicated radio show. Limbaughâ€™s controversial comments on Sandra Flukeâ€™s personal life and testimony have cost him over 140 sponsors and forced Premiere Radio Networks to suspend national ads for at least two weeks. However, it is not all doom and gloom for Limbaughâ€™s show. Rumors persist inside Clear Channel, which owns Premiere Networks, that indicate the company is considering an offer of sponsorship from Westboro Baptist Church. The church made headlines locally in Reno for threatening to picket Brianna Denisonâ€™s funeral. What kind of advertisements Westboro Baptist Church is offering for broadcast is unclear. If the offer is accepted it would put LifeLock and Lear Financial, the only major businesses to stand with Rush Limbaugh, in strange company. LifeLock provides identity security services, while Lear Financial is known for encouraging people to invest in gold, silver, and platinum. Messages left with Westboro Baptist have not yet been returned.
