    xm just made a stupid knee jerk reaction to a deranged homeless mans comments.

    By XM's own admission, XM202 the channel that brodcasted opie and anthony, had the most listeners of ANY of the XM channels. Of online listeners it was the channel 90% of people logged on to listen to.

    XM is making a serious mistake, and if this suspension turns into a fireing, as I suspect it will, I am canceling my subscription.

    I pay for EDGY, RACIST, SEXIST, NO-HOLDS-BARRED Talk....I dont pay for the artists to be suppressed and have to watch everything they say, if I wanted censorship and standards I would listen to regular radio.

    XM does not need to pander to people other than its subscribers.

    Exactly, that is why I subscribe to Sirius. I love being able to listen to uncensored talkshows.

    I'm glad XM made a responsible decision. Hopefully Opie and Andy will learn something from this, but I doubt it.

    Xm is stupid in setting a president for kicking off talent from their PAID SERVICE....this wont stop here, they are going to go after every "offensive" comedian and show on XM and Sirius.

    I think they mada a wise choice. CBS should have done that to IMUS
    before Jackson and Sharpton mounted their attack. The sponcers could
    have said that Imus is already getting punished, why fire him?
    Yea I know XM is different than being on the public air waves.
    But if I were O&A I would have asked to be suspended for
    a month just to insure I kept my job. A month is nothing, its
    a vacation at Cancun and Baleze. XM did the right thing.

    Actually, word is floating around the internet that they have been more than suspended, and have been fired from XM. They still do the show in syndication, but I think that;s less than 30 stations.

    I couldn't really care any less. They were losers before they were brought into "rescue" XM and they will still be losers after it's all over.

    If "loser" means, "most listened to channel on XM" I guess your right. But 7+ million total subs makes XM a winner.

    That would be an even better decision.
