Taking on Hate Radio

This could be subtitled: In which ABC/Walt Disney show themselves to value profit over elementary decency.

A blogger, Spocko, took umbrage at the hosts at KSFO radio calling for the torture and murder of a citizen in Lincoln, Nebraska, burning someone alive, stomping a antiwar protester to death, calling for the editors of major newspapers to be hanged, and for ""We've got a bulls-eye painted on her big laughing eyes." [her referring to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi] - among other things.

Spocko wrote polite letters to various companies that advertise on the radio station, asking them politely if they wanted their brands associated with this kind of rubbish.

The result is that as advertisers ponder pulling their ads, ABC radio lawyers are after Spocko. For copyright infringement.
