57. Reported by Fox! Naturally.
They remind me of the radio station in Rwanda who everyone now agrees, was largely responsible for the genocide there. While the Western World was debating whether or not to shut them down, over 800,000 people were slaughtered.

Sometimes I wonder if we don't take this 'freedom of the press' too far. If you saw someone on the street urging people to go attack someone, would you hesitate to call the police to put a stop to them? Why should it be any different if it's done with a microphone? I wonder if the laws that apply to 'hate speech' should not apply to radio and tv personalities who use the microphone as a 'command center'.
