Scoot Blog: Jay Z elevator fight was not a private moment
by Scoot, email@example.com,posted May 15 2014 8:03PM
What Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange, her sister, thought was a private moment in a hotel elevator turned out to be a moment shared with millions around the world. The incident was caught on video.
In the elevator of the Standard Hotel in New York City, Jay Z, with his wife Beyonce next to him; was hit and kicked by Beyonce's sister, Solange. Without audio it was not possible to determine what led to Solange attacking her brother-in-law, but there was no shortage of fan speculation ranging from Solange being intoxicated to her retaliating because Jay Z cheated on her sister.
A family statement to The Associated Press read, in part, "Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family." The statement goes on to explain that Solange was not intoxicated and as a family, they have problems and conflicts like any family.
The hotel employee who sold the hotel elevator video to the media was fired.
The assumed private moment in a hotel elevator made public raises the question about privacy today. When you are in an elevator of a building open to the public – do you expect that moment to be private?
The issue of right to privacy was also debated following the release of the racist rant that Donald Sterling made in his private conversation with his young girlfriend. It is my understanding that in the state of California it is illegal to record a conversation without notifying both parties and there doesn't seem to be a question about Sterling not being alerted that the conversation was being recorded.
There are moral and ethical questions about whether the hotel employee should have released the elevator video of Jay Z's sister-in-law attacking him and Donald Sterling's girlfriend releasing the audio of his racist rant, but beyond that, do Jay Z, Beyonce, Solange and Donald Sterling have any reason to complain about an invasion of their right to privacy?
Obviously, I am aware of what I say on the air, but I have also become keenly aware of every text, tweet and email that I send out. Based on the content of many of the text messages I receive during the show – not everyone is as careful as they should be!
It is not a secret that video cameras are so prevalent that we should expect our actions in public are not private and with the audio and video recording capabilities of cellphones, the expectation of privacy is simply unrealistic in today's world.
In fighting crime and identifying suspects, the benefits of video cameras in public place are well-established, but many people are frightened by the idea that "Big Brother" is watching – which first became a fear when George Orwell published his classic novel, "1984." The novel predicted a future time when the government – "Big Brother" – would be monitoring our every move. With the recent actions of the NSA, the sharing of information we volunteer on Facebook, Twitter and texting all make it easy to argue that "Big Brother" is watching us, but is the fear of a government data base on each of us to be used against us more reality or paranoia?
The fact is – we have lost the assurance that private moments are actually private – but are we upset because we're concerned about what someone will do with information or are we more concerned that we won't be able to get away with saying or doing things that in the past were easy to hide?
I live in an apartment building downtown and there are cameras in the elevators. Every day, I assume that anything I do in my elevator is not done in total privacy, therefore I am always aware of my behavior – and my date's behavior, as well!
When I am walking down any public street – I assume my actions are being watched. Though it did not lead to any arrested, I am grateful there was video of the 4 four men who attacked me on a downtown street.
In the case of the embarrassing moment in a hotel elevator when Jay Z what hit and kicked by his sister-in-law, is it fair to criticize that the confrontation was not private – or is that a way of diverting from the embarrassment of the moment?
Those who defended Donald Sterling by arguing that his racist comments were made in a private conversation with his girlfriend were trying to justify the racist comments. If Donald Sterling knew he was being recorded – then he is absolutely accountable for what he said.
As I sit in a coffee shop writing this blog – even though I don't see any customers looking at me – I must assume someone is watching! The only way to get around that would be if I wrote this blog in the men's room – and could I even be sure no one is watching there?

Please Enter Your Comments Below
But.. but... but ... BENGHAZI!!!!!!!!!
Go ahead and kiss that man. It will be great blog material for your allegiance to gay marriage
Jay z fight
He deserved a good whipping as she caught him in the closet with Scoot!
I love your show Scoot, but I doubt Jay would pick you over Beyonce. Just sayin. ;)
Why are you picking on Kmart? I see a lawsuit coming
Are also better in all other area of the country such as rush, Sean hannity and glen beck
Sean Hannity is a baseless idiot who supported Cliven Bundy. Glenn Beck is an alarmist, hyperbolic crybaby. Limbaugh's audience is dropping lower than a snake's bollocks. And he's the only one of the three that had much talent to begin with. The WWL lineup is better than any of them and its local.
Hip Hop Monkeys acting out in an elevator ...
well, sounds about right.
"Radio Personalities" gee, your ignorance is laughable.
Did Scooter let you suck his pénis for that post ...? LOL.
Looks like the lazy Obama Zombies were out holding signs today and playing victim.
Fire the clowns. It is the compassionate thing to do. Life lessons must be learned.
The leftist pedophile here trashing Radio Personalities support the liar, incompetent Obama.
Cliven Bundy has more character.
So we are supposed to care about these dysfunctional hip hop clowns?
No wonder the country is failing fast.
Is a racist who doesn't want to pay his bills to the government. Sean Hannity is shallow and not entertaining. Glenn Beck is a former cocaine addict "zoo crew" DJ that believes God speaks to him and makes him cry about FEMA camps. Glenn Beck is a troll and an idiot, not a prophet or a political mind. He is theatre and drama for weak minded conspiracists. Limbaugh had talent but his ratings are dropping - if you think I'm ignorant, disprove anything I've said - otherwise, be quiet.
Sean Hannity Top Ten
10. Hannity Hyped RNC's Doctored Audio Of Supreme Court Arguments. Hannity uncritically aired a Republican National Committee (RNC) ad that used audio from Supreme Court oral arguments to attack health care reform -- but the audio used in the ad was dishonestly edited. [Media Matters, 3/30/12]
9. Hannity Distorted CBO Data To Attack Obama. Hannity claimed that a January 2012 Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report showed that if Obama were to win a second term, taxes would "go up 30 percent." In fact, the report only stated that taxes would increase at such a rate if all the Bush tax cuts were allowed to expire. [Media Matters, 2/2/12]
8. Hannity Falsely Claimed A White House Adviser "Advocated Compulsory Abortion." Hannity claimed that White House science and technology adviser John Holdren "advocated compulsory abortion" and sterilization. PolitiFact had previously rated a similar claim -- made months earlier by Fox News' Glenn Beck -- "pants on fire" false. [Media Matters, 9/9/09]
7. Hannity Falsely Claimed Obama Called The Death Of Four Americans "Just A Bump In The Road." Hannity claimed that Obama referred to the death of four Americans in the September 2012 attack on a U.S. compound in Benghazi as "just a bump in the road." In fact, Obama was referring to the difficulties Arab countries were facing in transitioning from autocratic rule to democracy. [Media Matters, 9/25/12]
6. Hannity Spread False Report That Egypt Was Considering Necrophilia Bill. Hannity hyped a thinly-sourced report from an Egyptian newspaper to claim that the Egyptian government was considering a law that would allow a husband to have sex with his dead wife. The Christian Science Monitor called the story "utter hooey," and multiple sources later debunked the claim. [Media Matters, 4/30/12; Huffington Post, 4/26/12]
5. Hannity's Special On "Liberal Bias" Featured Wildly Distorted And Out-Of-Context Quotes. Hannity's "Behind the Bias" special, in which he purported to investigate the "bias" of "the mainstream media," featured multiple deceptively cropped quotes. For example, he played a clip purporting to show that Katie Couric called President Ronald Reagan "an airhead"; in fact, Couric was citing a conclusion from a biography of Reagan. [Media Matters, 4/24/11]
4. Hannity Cast Doubt On Scientific Consensus About Climate Change. Even though the overwhelming majority of scientists agree that global warming is occurring and is likely caused or exacerbated by human activity, Hannity has repeatedly denied or cast doubt on the existence of climate change. [Media Matters, 12/4/09, 1/13/10, 8/27/10, 11/19/10, 6/24/11]
3. Hannity Fueled Myth That Obama Is A Muslim. During a segment in March 2011 in which he fueled the smear that Obama was not born in the U.S., Hannity claimed that Obama "went to a Muslim school." In March 2012, while claiming that he was "not doubting [Obama's] faith," Hannity said, "[L]ook, he did write about his early years, that he did study the Quran, that one of the most beautiful moments in life was prayer at sunset. So, I mean, he does have that background." [Media Matters, 3/24/11, 3/21/12]
Glenn Beck - Drugs & Mormonism Fried His Brain
In any given episode of a Glenn Beck show, you can be assured of hearing something hilarious. Lately, Beck has been jumping up and down about non-existent Boston Bombing conspiracies, comparing New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to a Nazi, and claiming the suicide of a potential mass shooter at Houston airport was akin to the fire at the German Reichstag in 1933.
Sure, that’s pretty crazy, but it’s nothing compared to some of the other stuff he’s said over the years. Beck specializes in a unique brand of creative thinking where completely unrelated events can be strung together to form a completely alternative reality that only he understands.
In homage to Beck’s madness, we went back in history to find the craziest stuff he’s ever said. There were many, many other quotes that could have made the top 5, but the following 5 nuggets of sheer lunacy were, in our opinion, the very best:
1. “I’m thinking about killing Michael Moore, and I’m wondering if I could kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it. … No, I think I could. I think he could be looking me in the eye, you know, and I could just be choking the life out. Is this wrong? I stopped wearing my What Would Jesus — band — Do, and I’ve lost all sense of right and wrong now. I used to be able to say, ‘Yeah, I’d kill Michael Moore,’ and then I’d see the little band: What Would Jesus Do? And then I’d realize, ‘Oh, you wouldn’t kill Michael Moore. Or at least you wouldn’t choke him to death.’ And you know, well, I’m not sure.” –responding to the question “What would people do for $50 million?”, The Glenn Beck Program, May 17, 2005
2. “Al Gore’s not going to be rounding up Jews and exterminating them. It is the same tactic, however. The goal is different. The goal is globalization…And you must silence all dissenting voices. That’s what Hitler did. That’s what Al Gore, the U.N., and everybody on the global warming bandwagon [are doing].” – The Glenn Beck Program, May 1, 2007
3. “You know, we all have our inner demons. I, for one – I can’t speak for you, but I’m on the verge of moral collapse at any time. It can happen by the end of the show.” – The Glenn Beck Program, Nov. 6, 2006
4. “The violent left is coming to our streets, all of our streets, to smash, to tear down, to kill, to bankrupt, to destroy. It is will be global in its nature and global in its scope” - Values Voter Summit, Novemer 10 2008
5. When you watch Barack Obama, you can just see he is angry….No matter how much power he has amassed, no matter how many friends in the media he has, Americans know. And if they reject it this time, if they’re so dead inside – that’s a possibility – if they’re so dead inside that they can no longer see the difference between good and evil, we have to be destroyed because we will be a remarkable evil on this planet.” - The Glenn Beck Program, 5 November 2012
Rush In The Basement
How low can Rush Limbaugh go in Los Angeles?
The syndicated talker, who for two decades has been universally regarded as the most popular and powerful AM talker in the country, continues to wallow in obscurity in the nation's second largest radio market. According to recently released ratings from Nielsen Audio, Limbaugh's California flagship station, KEIB, now ranks 39th in the Los Angeles market, attracting an anemic .5 ratings share. (A ratings share represents the percent of those listening to radio in the market who are tuned into a particular station.)
The tumble to 39th place represents yet another downward lurch -- in March the station logged in at 37th place. Note that there are a total of 45 rated stations in the Los Angeles market, which means Limbaugh's KEIB station (the call letters mirror Limbaugh's motto, "Excellence in Broadcasting") has nearly reached the ratings basement.
Rush, beck and hannity are still way better than scoot
Jay Z has more fans and sales than the total number of listeners to Hannity, Beck or Limbaugh. More people listen to a wealthy black guy (and vote for them) than listen to right wing talk spew.
Jay Z is human debris.
and you are a sick puppy for worshiping this clown. Get a real life.
Scoot and the left-nut clowns here made a hero of Michael Sam for kissing a guy ...
Here's a story you may have missed after the NFL Draft wrapped up last weekend in New York City. Alejandro Villanueva, a former U.S. Army Ranger who served three tours in Afghanistan, is getting a chance with the Philadelphia Eagles. He is a REAL hero, but he does not put his pénis into other men’s rectums so to Scoot he is not a hero.
The leftist pedophile here believes Obama ... enough said ... LOL.
It’s hard to think of a president that has been more of an Epic Failure than President Obama. Even Carter is glad this guy came along, so at least he knows he is no longer the worst president ever. Here is just a short list of Obama’s Failures:
Hawaii is in Asia
Passing on the keystone pipeline.
Touts a Green Energy Company as exemplary that fails a year later.
Using the Gulf Oil Spill to promote Green Energy – instead of cleaning it up.
Thinking the Tea Party is a passing fad – or that they are racists.
Pulling out of Iraq with no clear victory over insurgent forces.
Trying to re-write history through speeches – with inaccurate information (i.e. Statue of Liberty)
Getting a Nobel Prize for being the most ineffective President in the history of the United States, though some say it was for his pigment.
Putting all legislation on the Internet for five days before it comes to a vote.
Returning the bust of Churchill to the Brits.
Giving a collection of DVDs to the British PM.
Denying the notion of American Exceptionalism.
Promising to close Gitmo — failing to do so.
Securing the Olympics for Chicago in 2016.
Naming numerous Communists/Socialists/Progressives to his various Czar positions and then watching them scurry for cover when Beck begins to call them out, forcing them to resign.
Government races for NJ, VA and the Senate Seat in Mass.
The midterm elections, which Obama himself called a shellacking.
Prediction that stimulus would ensure that unemployment doesn’t exceed 8%.
Bowing to just about everybody.
Proposing amnesty for illegal aliens to increase the population of voters for Democrat elections.
He said, I have visited 57 states. Now there is just 1 left to visit.
Obama to Medvedev…give me space I will have more flexibility after my election.
OBAMA YOUTH FEMA CAMP!

we will find that ObamaCare makes late term abortions legal thus, we can just abort all adult DemWits—better late than never. lol would save the country ...
Monkeys fight in an elevator. Too funny.
They need to be put back in their cage.
Rush doing just fine.
Rush Limbaugh net worth: Rush Limbaugh is an American conservative radio host and media personality who has a net worth of $370 million. Rush Limbaugh is one of the most popular and highly compensated radio talk show hosts in the world. He earns an annual salary north of $70 million. After stints in Pittsburgh (where he went by the name Jeff Christie), Kansas City and Sacramento, the Limbaugh went national in 1988. Today he is a majority owner of his radio show, which receives over 14 million listeners per week.
He is doing just fine unlike the monkeys in the elevator and the leftist pedophile that posts here.
The leftist troll here loves Scoot because he panders to blacks and homosexuals.
Scoot is OK for a local host, but is not in the same league as Rush or Hannity. Liberals have failed in national radio show attempts and require government funding in order to survive. The Liberal Troll here is just back that hates white people and thinks Jay Z and Obama are some sort of gods. Pretty pathetic.

Keep up the great work.
Rapper Jay-Z's Business Empire Thrives on Perpetuating Thug Culture ...
It is no wonder that blacks continue to fail as a race. They continue to glorify and excuse bad behavior and worship wag’s like Jay-Z. They lead the nation is abortions and teen violence and perform poorly in the classroom. Blacks continue to create thûgs rather than citizens and white liberals see them as the useful fools many of them are.
Democrats are all for slaughtering children in abortion mills but

Obama isn't liberal enough for me on some issues and I don't believe everything he says - but keep thinking we're all as monolithic and simple minded as you are.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/05/16/racist-police-obama-_n_5336768.html?utm_hp_ref=politics - Police Chief calls Obama "N word" and refuses to apologize - racist creeps just like the posters here.
Won't go away. This is great news. The old codger has freedom of speech on his side. Too bad for the liberal nba nuts

Let's see, while 4 Americans are being killed
at a location, solely established to make it LOOK wonderful in Liberia for The "O" election rhetoric, he practices debating, then concocts a story to lie to Americans, including the four dead family members, about a video, for the sole purpose of what his talking points memo said in English. Let's blame video, not a policy failure. In case you haven't noticed or don't get it there has been a policy failure most everywhere. As for the improving healthcare, you are talking about suspending implementation so the draconian policies of one federal agency will apply to every aspects of the US health care system after the next election, not now. Have you any idea of the cost and waste of trillions spent on marketing, web sites and lawyers trying to understand what thousands of pages of their regulations mean, other than to destroy the best health care system in the world. Couldn't we have just paid their premiums and tried to reduce costs, but no The big 0 took care of all the special interests and their requirements, just not the American people. Now you strangely suggest that he could be viewed as responsible for the VA crisis. My question to you is why isn't he? He was supposed to be running the government these past 6 years. Oh he was golfing instead of running the executive branch. The big 0 is a total failure especially in any aspect of managing the government. He is purely politically motivated and couldn't manage a city effectively. He is a wonderful mouthpiece without any ability to unite, lead or more important, take any responsibility for the 0 that is batting and the partisan politics he plays everyday. America is in trouble and you are worried about the VA crisis affecting him. How about the Veterans who died while this so called leader was President or more precisely Commander in Chief. A sad commentary on what is important, as it is clearly his responsibility if men who served in the military are being denied healthcare, and his excuse is What? He didn't know?
The NBA is a black league for the most part.
Most in the league tolerate the racism of rich blacks such as Spike Lee and the players themselves, while raising holy hell over the racism of rich whites. The NBA is pretty much a segregated organization in real practice. Certainly they can do whatever they want within the law, but it is what it is. Magic Johnson had sex with practically everything that moved and got HIV for his troubles yet he is held up as a role model. Johnson was a talented basketball player but never a role model. Sports creates many false gods.
Sam I Am ...
So many folks lining up to lie claiming they endorse homosexuality so others will think they are more righteous than someone else. People today are not comfortable in their own skin and feel they have to follow the mob. Sam made himself a joke by making a big show of his sexual preferences. He chose to focus on politics and sex rather than football and lacked the maturity to maintain some privacy. He wanted the circus and got it. If he can play, the Rams will keep him if not he should be cut like any other player. The media needs to fill time and pages. They know good people disagree about this so it makes for ratings.
Liberalism is a BIOTCH ...
U.S. economic growth has fallen from 3.4 percent during the Reagan-Clinton years to 1.7 percent since the beginning of this century. This slowdown was caused by U.S currency and trade policies toward China that disadvantage U.S. manufacturers, restrictions on offshore oil and gas development that keep America dependent on imports, and costly and ineffective regulations on banking, health care and other industries.
Millions of Americans are without decent jobs, and governments at all levels are severely challenged. Those will get worse if the nation continues on its current path.
Gay owners hope to share moment with Preakness win...
so now the Preakness is all about þutt sex too ... LOL
Michael Sam created the circus he stars in and now will whine that he is a victim of it. Liberals generally destroy their lives and then blame others. Perhaps Sam will eventually grow up and do something productive. Of course the average lifespan of malehomosexuals is not that long. Hopefully the Rams will do us all a favor and cut this wag. He is more focused on sex and politics than football.
Blacks in general have a history of not endorsing homosexuality.
Sad that now that two blacks are the poster children for deviant behavior in the NBA and NFL.
http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2012/jul/05/john-boehner/john-boehner-says-us-health-care-system-best-world/ - NOT the best healthcare system in the world, Canada, Europe, etc surpass us.
Right Wing Stuck on Stupid
The third edition of a periodic study by the Commonwealth Fund found that "compared with six other nations — Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom — the U.S. health care system ranks last or next-to-last on five dimensions of a high performance health system: quality, access, efficiency, equity, and healthy lives."
Marty you must fo back in time and give Obama’s dad a condom.
Yep, better if the àsshole Obama was never born.
"American Healthcare" You are STUPID and LIE often.
Apparently you have been fuçked up the þutt so many times the STDs you have are affecting your brain.
Funny Obama delayed much of ObamaCare because he knows it is SH!T.
The stupid bottom-feeder liberals here believe whatever Obama tells them ... LOL.
ObamaCare has done nothing to improve actual health care.
It has merely created chaos in the insurance industry, raised costs, increased the national debt, and caused many to lose their insurance. The dependent welfare crowd continues to soak the middle class.
We have seen the wags run the VA ... and the stupid what to put Obama and the
IRS in charge of everyone’s health care ... LOL ... well, at least some of those who die without care will be liberals.
Meanwhile are the hip hop monkeys still fighting in the elevator?
ah, the parade of liberal role models ... LOL ... no wonder must black youth are dysfunctional.
You say I lie but never rebut my posts with any facts. Telling.
CDC: Inner City Youth Suffer Complex Form of PTSD Labeled 'Hood Disease'...
now blacks youth have another excuse for failure. Best advice for anyone of any race ... don’t let Democrats make you a victim. Succeed without them. That really ticks them off.
If Obama and his henchmen had actually enforced the ObamaCare law as
passed right from the start, they would be hated much more than they are. They have, of course, continued to delay much of it so as to put off the havoc that the law will cause on the health care system. The Obama Administration exists on lies and deceit.
Liberal leaders never promote anything but government
dependency. One of the best feelings of success for
any human being is to find solutions to problems by
your own inner resources and not government programs.
Whether you like Rush Limbaugh or not one of his
main messages is be the best you can be.
Female Softball Player Comes Out as Straight ....
A college softball player from the University of Texas shocked the sports world today by coming out as a heterosexual.
In an emotional press conference this morning, Jennifer Ryan, 23, announced that she was a “proud member” of the opposite-sex community. The senior shortstop is believed to be the first and only openly straight women’s softball player in the history of NCAA athletics.
“I would just like to thank everyone who has supported me through this difficult time in my life,” she told reporters at McCombs Field in Austin. “For years I have known that I was different, but lacked the courage to be open about my lifestyle with family, friends and teammates.
“Today I would like to tell the world that I am straight. It’s not something that I chose. I was simply born this way. And after years of living in the closet, the time has come for me to start being who I really am.
“I want to tell every little girl in America: you don’t have to be gay to be an elite softball player. Straight athletes hit just as hard, pitch just as hard, and run just as hard as everybody else.
“Hopefully my example will inspire other straight softball players to come out from the shadows. We need to stand up and be recognized for the amazing contributions we have made to this sport.”
Obama is NOT mad as hell about the VA scandal.
LOL ... he could care less ... it only annoys him because it interferes with his fund-raising and golf game.
Yeah, Limbaugh is really encouraging about people "being their best" considering the way he talks about all liberals - to him, there's nothing good about a liberal, even a rich liberal capitalist, in Limbaughs tiny world all liberals are evil socialists hell bent on destroying everyone and everything. A liberal cannot be their best according to Rush Limbaugh without converting to the far right.
Limbaugh Drags Down Ratings
However, the move of Rush was intended to be a solution for the sagging 9 AM to Noon numbers on KFI. Rush was causing KFI to score in the 1.2 range in the December-Holiday-Jan period in middays in 25-54, and now, without Rush, the daypart is up to a 2.3.Yes, fairly early to judge but Rush was part of the problem.
rush 99.5 dominates New Orleans
Wwl 870 is jealous of this stations ratings. Only don dubuc and bobby/deke are better than the competition. Rush rules
Looks like the liberal monkey we his diaper again in a rage .... LOL.
Liberalism has produced nothing but shared misery and has destroyed the Black Community especially black youth. So-called rich liberals do not live like they preach to the bottom-feeder fools that follow them and hang on their every word. They love profit and crony capitalism while supporting policies that hurt small business and centralize more power in Washington. The liberal base is government chattel——ignorant people.
Obama enourages people to become government dependents and trashes
small business people. Obama is hateful and arrogant and living large off taxpayers because he is not competent enough to succeed in the real world of private sector business. Semi-literate Michelle was given a job to sit on her fat àss by a hospital and she needed affirmative action to get into school.
One can only imagine the sewer WWL would be if New Orleans did not have
a professional football team. They do a good job with hurricane coverage, but wanting that for ratings is wishing for bad weather. Sports talk dominates most AM radio. Liberal talk radio is a well-documented failure. Scoot tries to walk both sides of thestreet, but his homosexual activism hurts him.
Scoot fears banter and disagreement and shuts it down on his show.
He does not realize that without it he has nothing but making announcements about festivals and new bands. He is very thinned-skinned and threatens people who disagree with him. He is insecure and arrogant and cannot relax in his own skin. Basically he is not good at political talk radio and should just stick to fill-in topics and doing community service stunts to tug at heart strings.
GOP is expert in crony capitalism. Romney, Bohener, McConnell, steeped in it. Also, looking back over the numbers WWL last book did 1.8 better than 99.5 and at times ranks almost double the share of WRNO. You trolling idiots get your intellectual stimulation from that shock jock New England libertarian dolt Osterlind - no wonder your posts on here are devoid of fact. WWL, live and local, will continue to rule the talk roost in New Orleans and the Gulf South as Rush's ratings continue to follow the other dung - right down the toilet and into the sewer. Guess being an angry white guy yelling on the radio has seen its day.
Hey, how about that Clear Channel cronyism - their stations and the Heritage Foundation propping up Rush while fewer people listen - Limbaugh's getting his big ole b_tt kicked by the FREE MARKET! Losing listeners.
rush radio rules
wwl radio is losing ratings pandering to gays and. Liberals. I only like bobby, Angela and don dubuc
Hasn't "lost" ratings. Their fluctuations along with WRNO "wobble" far better than many major market syndication dominant talk radio stations. Their numbers over the past four books look great, and WRNO dips also. But WWL has consistently led WRNO by a near two point or better lead each quarter. Not that I expect you'd ever so much as have been in spitting distance of Arbitron numbers, you know, the actual BUSINESS of radio - for such a capitalist conservative, you don't know jack.
The Democrat Flat Earth Cult says they have less than 500 days to live.
Their spokesman, President Obama, says that global warming will kill them and that only raising taxes can offer any hope of avoiding this inevitable fate ... LOL ... well, we won't have to impeach the wag he plans do die with all his followers in some sort of mass cult suicide ... sweet!
Seems Scooter Boys soiled himself again in a rage reading his blog .... LOL.
Without the Saints, WWL would not be much. The rest of the shows are filler.
Kerry tells grads to keep faith in govt... DemWITS worship government. It is their God and religion.
Sad that half the country puts little faith in themselves to solve their problems. They choose slavery over success. Kerry hopes most will choose to be government chattel.
Obama has spewed more hate and sowed more division that any modern president.
It Eventually caught up with him. Political correctness (because Obama has black skin) is the only thing saving his hateful, arrogant àss.
Obama does NOT want most people to do well, or be all they can be.
... and he has enacted policies to make sure most do not do well.
Schools and students are rejecting Nanny Michelle's lunch program ...
they would rather the fat azz Michelle not tell them how to eat.
Do You REALLY Need To Justify Voter ID?
* In 59 voting districts in the Philadelphia region, Obama received 100% of the votes with not even a single vote recorded for Romney. (A mathematical and statistical impossibility).
* In 21 districts in Wood County Ohio , Obama received 100% of the votes where GOP inspectors were illegally removed from their polling locations - and not one single vote was recorded for Romney. (Another statistical impossibility).
* In Wood County Ohio , 106,258 voted in a county with only 98,213 eligible voters.
* In St. Lucie County, FL, there were 175,574 registered eligible voters but 247,713 votes were cast.
* The National SEAL Museum , a polling location in St. Lucie County, FL had a 158% voter turnout.
* Palm Beach County , FL had a 141% voter turnout.
* In one Ohio County , Obama won by 108% of the total number of eligible voters.
NOTE: Obama won in every state that did not require a Photo ID and lost in every state that did require a Photo ID in order to vote. Imagine that.....
ARE WE THE DUMBEST NATION ON THE PLANET OR WHAT?
Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other.
Yea, 50 years from now when Obama is dead and gone there will likely be one of
those fascinating truths reports on the History Channel® about how Obama was not even a US citizen and put on one of the greatest hoaxes of all time. LOL .. Time will not be kind to Obama for those who seek the truth about this Marxist wag.
It's completely possible for no one in a given district to vote for a candidate - are you a total idiot?
Debate me on the ratings, you idiot. Dispute what I've said. WWL is NOT suffering ratings wise against WRNO. Provide PROOF of your allegations or shut it.

GOP - Party of "Freedom"
Marco Rubio, potential 2016 GOP Presidential contender, claims there is no way to use marijuana responsibly. Good job being pro-freedom and relevant, Marco.. http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/power-players-abc-news/marco-rubio-s-pot-hole-213151018.html
^^^ The wag above is stoned ...
Dude, you do have the freedom to kill yourself. Have at it. LOL ... have a relative report back here when you are dead. HA!
Yep, hearing about another dead liberal always brings on a smile.
Always a good day when another liberal dies. LOL
Looks like the leftist troll has not been getting any from his Obama Blow-Up Doll.
He is getting grouchy and needs a hit of Cannabis to calm his nerves and get his érection to go down.
Hillary is too old and ugly to be president ...
besides she is a WH0RE. She spread legs for Bill Clinton to acquire power and wealth she could never get on her own. She falls often now. She was already incompetent, but the brain damage she has suffered makes her a total tart monkey.
"kill myself?" on pot? First of all, I don't use it, and secondly, you don't die from pot OD. So feel free to continue saying idiotic things while not addressing that point, which is that Rubio is believing in bad science and is out of step with the current beliefs of a majority of the voting public, thus hurting the GOP rebrand - again, feel free to keep not reading my posts and responding with irrelevant ignorance.
White House says Obama unaware of VA problems -- until reading news reports...
he says the same thing about all his scandals. One gets the impression he is unaware of most things——a real prannock.
Imagine if a white guy has been so unaware of so much ...
you finally get a black president and he turns out to be a window licker. Bam has set blacks back 100 years ...
If a white guy had been unaware of so much, we'd call him George W. (Mission Accomplished) Bush.
Fox News also appears to cater to ethnocentric assumptions. This discourse has grown with the election of Obama to the White House. In one study, researchers asked panelists where they obtained their televised news about national and international affairs. Roughly one-quarter of respondents indicated that they received their information from Fox News. At the time of the study, questions of Obama’s birth were being raised. When asked if they believed Obama was born in the United States, only 21 percent of Fox viewers said that Obama was American born. The authors of the study, Michael Tesler and David O. Sears, wrote, “[T]he reinforcing and/or persuasive role of oppositional media outlets like Fox News and conservative talk radio could make it increasingly difficult to disabuse the sizable minority of individuals disposed to accepting invalid assertions designed to paint Obama as the ‘other.’” In the face of such evidence, many Fox apologists, commentators, and guests often defended the views of Birthers and Tea Party activists. While frequent Fox talking head Ann Coulter claimed that that no one on Fox ever mentioned “Birtherism,” research indicates that not only did Fox News mention it; they ramped up coverage of the Birthers leading up to the April 2011 release of the “long form” birth certificate. Moreover, at least 85 percent (forty-four out of fifty-two) of false claims about Obama’s birth went unchallenged on Fox News. Fox segments repeated that Obama never produced a birth certificate, that Obama’s grandmother said he was born in Kenya, and that Obama spent $2 million in legal funds blocking the release of his birth certificate.
The liberal troll just soiled himself again ... LOL ...
he has been up all night chanting praises to his Lord and Savior Obama. The snapperhead is having another bad day being a DemWIT bottom feeder.
Liberals are so easily led around by the nose like dogs on a leash.
No wonder they are government chattel and believe whatever Obama says. LOL ... such fucktards ...
Kmart beats scoot
Obama is a fraud, but he is black liberal so he gets a pass ...
LOL ... Obama is a wag, a joke around the world.
Well, at least Scooter Boy can talk about how good the weather is.
Won't be listening. ENJOY!
We will! Scoot is awesome. Thats why he's been on New Orleans radio for years and you're left hissing, spitting and being foul all over his blog. You sad little man.
More Right Wing Racist BS
The attacks on Obama and his administration reached a fever pitch in July 2010 when conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart falsely suggested (via a doctored video) that Shirley Sherrod—in her former position with the USDA—had racially discriminated against white farmers. The video was hosted on Breitbart’s website and broadcast on “The O’Reilly Factor,” after which Bill O’Reilly called for Sherrod’s resignation. Tea Party organizer Dana Loesch also appeared on “Larry King Live” to frame Sherrod as antiwhite and the Obama administration as soft on black racists. In particular, conservative commentators referenced Sherrod in relation to the Obama administration’s earlier decision to scale back prosecution of allegations that the New Black Panther Party had engaged in voter intimidation. Such comparisons were used to label the Obama administration as racially hypocritical and antiwhite. In the wake of these accusations, Sherrod received numerous demands from government officials to submit her resignation. Days later it was revealed that Breitbart had doctored the video in order to racially defame Sherrod and the Obama administration.
It would be illegal under federal law (the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974) for Occidental, Columbia or Harvard Law School to give any former student’s records to reporters or members of the public without that person’s specific, written permission. Obama hasn’t released them, but neither have other presidential candidates released their college records. George W. Bush’s grades at Yale eventually became public, but only because somebody leaked them to the New Yorker magazine. Bush himself refused to release them, according to a 1999 profile in the Washington Post.
Mark Levine wrno 99.5 ha ratings beating scoot every night
POST THEM. Post the ACTUAL NUMBERS from ARBITRON.
Scoot getting real mad ... sports on tonight instead of his nonsense. LOL
Hope they replace him.
GALLUP: Jobs, Government, and Economy Remain Top Problems...
Kerry's rants at graduation on 'global warming'...LOL ... Dems focused on dying from global warming ... well, their policies have failed on all fronts so they show off their lunacy.
See that the liberal troll SH!T on himself again.
Obama is a failure, but then Democrats are the worst kind of racist. They do not hold blacks to the same standards of excellence as they hold other races.
Congrats to Michael Sam on his new endorsemen deal.
He is not the spokesperson for Prostate Pro Anàl Stimulator. Now when his boyfriend is out of town he can still get that loving feeling and you Sam-Boys can too. Order today ... it is on Amazon ... they is some risk in buying used one ....
Angel Hill and the OPEN MIND show ...
sounds like there is nothing in her head ... more WWL filler nonsense. LOL
Well scoot may save his show yet. He has everyone fighting.
Funny stuff. A lot of people messing with each other.
Solange represents African American woman who frequently put beat down on male child. This is why black man struggles in life.
The Liberal Troll is the only one who thinks all this blog stuff is reall >>>> HA!!!
The poor slack-jawed lackey has been led around like a dog on a leash for weeks .... LOL .... thanks for playing along Scoot.
That Scoot is honest about who he is, what he believes, and how he lives. Scoot writes a blog but he is not trolling his blog and getting people to be nasty. It's a sad and cynical world you must live in. Still waiting on those Levin ratings, sourced from Arbitron, the recognized source for such information.
Posts racism, crude language and wishes death on people then claims "but its not real." Convenient excuse for your immaturity. I wish the WWL administrators would find your internet address and ban you completely. You contribute nothing and there's no excuse. Obviously, you don't have the nerve to call Scoot and debate your point openly before the listeners so you cower here and lift your leg on every blog like a dog seeing a fire hydrant or tree. How pathetic. And you want us to believe you're a good American taxpaying hard worker conservative? Doubt it. You act irresponsibly, I'd be shocked if you could function in the workplace with your attitudes.
LOL this is so rich ... LOL hope ^^^^^ this guy does not die of a heart attack ... HA!
... I doubt this guy is able to function outside his mother’s basement.
He thought this banter was real too ... LOL ...
Jay Carney was asked at the Daily Briefing on Monday why President Obama has not addressed the issue of Excessive Nose Hair Disease or used his bully pulpit to promote civil rights legislation to make it easier for those with the condition to get access to employment opportunities. Carney responded that the President had played golf Sunday and was off to Vegas for a fundraiser.
Well, GAME, SET, MATCH ... once again we illustrate that liberals are angry
and raging about something all the time and cannot laugh at anything much less themselves. They are quick to scream BAN EVERYONE ... no wonder they believe in fairy tales like man-made global warming. Have fun. Enjoyed watching the wags lose their cookies. Bye!
The Real Joke
Is on you. You think you make people angry. We're not angry at you. We just think you're ill mannered, crude, and completely moronic. So, I post a few facts, you can't rebut them, and instead revert back to poop slinging. Says a lot about you personally, and nothing about these generic "liberals" you assume we are. As for you being banned, your comments are beyond racist and crude, and not appropriate for a general audience radio station site. Feel free to spout your nonsense elsewhere. Many others have responded to these blogs without crossing the line as you have. So no, I don't want everyone banned. Just you. Because you're the one who abuses your privileges.
