    Last night at the tail end of a huge Jewish Federation banquet, at least 2/3 of the 1300 guests had left the cavernous Barker Hanger venue, the night was winding down, and it looked like nothing in the world would bring the dwindling crowd back to life.

    Then Federation President Jay... read on

  • AshleyMadison Comes to L.A., Via Howard Stern

    Tonight I’m moderating a discussion between Rabbi Mark Borovitz and Noel Biederman, the founder of the web site AshleyMadison.com.  I first heard Biederman on the Howard Stern Show.  Howard’s incisive interviews with him exposed all the genius and complexities behind the man and his... read on

  • Getting Gary Down

    By Rob Eshman

    By Rob Eshman

    February 24, 2011 | 12:07 pm

    One of the remarkable achievements of Howard Stern is how he built his career despite being shunned by many mainstream advertisers.  Coke, McDonalds—all the family brands shunned him (though, as he has pointed out, they do more to poison America than he ever did). On terrestrial... read on

    February 7, 2011 | 1:10 pm

    Piers Morgan came into Howard’s studio today, trying to breathe life into his one-sided feud with Stern.  Stern indulged him for a while, because it was good radio.  But, really, here’s the only question Stern needed to ask Morgan in order to put an end to his fantasies:  Can Morgan... read on
