“I’m honored to have given every ounce of intellectual honesty I’ve had for the past 20 years. To anyone who appreciates that, I appreciate you.
“Whether I made you laugh or scream, every day I thought about how to make that barstool the most entertaining place you could be. It’s all I ever wanted to do. That part of the job was fun. Thank you for letting me in. I admire you, and I hope you admire me.
“Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go play with my kids.”Austin American-Statesman
Sinclair media has claimed another victim. I stopped listening to Jeff Ward ages ago. I stopped having enough in common with his brand of political and economic thought to be able to find him amusing anymore. That is not his fault, it is the fault of disability. The fault of poverty. But mutual success is how we all survive and thrive, and there is precious little success these days out here in radioland if you aren’t willing to fuck over your clients, your competitors and/or your funders.
This is the age of Trump, and that is how Trump does business. That is also how Sinclair media does business. If you want to know what is going on in the world, don’t get your news from a Sinclair source, because they will lead you astray everytime.
Sorry you lost your job Jeff. I’m sure you’ll find something else to do.
