Like you, I'm eager to see how Jay Severin
handles himself when he returns to the WTKK-FM airwaves tomorrow. He's
got a tricky task ahead of him, that's for sure. On the one hand,
Severin needs to show his bosses that he can, in fact, be "civil and respectful," or at least come reasonably close. But Severin
also has to convince his loyal listenership that--his recent suspension notwithstanding--he's

come to esteem.
When I blogged last week on anti-Mexican hatemonger Jay Severin’s recent, ill-explained suspension from WTKK-FM--a suspension that remains in effect as of this writing--a host of Severin defenders weighed in with comments. One of their favorite claims: Severin was being throttled for daring to speak candidly about illegal immigration.
Whatever you're doing right now, stop for a moment and read Scot Lehigh's pitch-perfect takedown of Jay Severin. It tells you everything you need to know about the WTKK host and his recent suspension. It's also Lehigh at his best.
Friday night plans? Not too late to change 'em! I'll be on the weekly "Beat the Press" segment of Greater Boston tonight, discussing the latest Globe funkiness; coverage of killer swine flu and the related suspension of world-class anti-Mexican Jay Severin; and John Henry and Linda Pizzuti's...candor. Please tune in, or watch online at your leisure.
Boston.com reports that boundary-pushing WTKK-FM host Jay Severin has been suspended for some deragatory commentary involving Mexicans and the swine flu. But the story doesn't say what those comments were.
Don't blame reporter David Abel. I tried contacting Heidi Raphael, the spokeswoman for Greater Media, WTKK's parent company.
In which I contend that the Right's anxiety about the FD's impending return is, in part, aimed at feuling opposition to Net Neutrality--and that Democrats should drop the former subject ASAP.
Here's the truth-challenged WTKK host working to simultaneously A) whip up extreme anti-Obama sentiment and B) insert enough disclaimers that he won't get in trouble if anyone acts accordingly:
You have a job and I do too. My job, with your help, is to start today, or recommit today, with 29 days left in this campaign, to politically destroy Barack Obama.
