    North Korea’s Familiar Struggle

    I am writing to give you a heartfelt thanks for the cover story on the human rights situation in North Korea (“Holocaust in the Hermit Kingdom,” Jan. 24). I was born in the United States, my parents are South Korean immigrants, and in my family...

  • Lena Dunham: Howard Stern looks like a ‘cartoon of a Jewish female horse’

    February 5, 2014 | 9:36 am

    Once upon a time, shock jock Howard Stern said some not nice things on his radio show about Lena Dunham. Specifically that Dunham is “a little fat girl who kind of looks like Jonah Hill” who was “raping his eyes.”

    It took a good year, but Dunham finally hit back. According to...

  • Howard Stern’s secret, and ours

    By Rob Eshman

    January 28, 2014 | 4:10 pm

    On my way to work every morning I listen to Howard Stern. I’ve been listening for 20 years.

    In the beginning, I didn’t tell anyone. Polite society dismissed Stern as a crude, sexist, racist “shock jock.” Putting “shock jock” before someone’s name is an instant denigration, like...

  • We are Carlos Danger

    By last Wednesday, thanks to the magic of the Internet, I had seen as much of Anthony Weiner’s private parts as if I had spent the afternoon with him in the shvitz.

    The former congressman and New York mayoral hopeful had sexted the pictures to his 23-year-old crush, Sydney...

  • Seth MacFarlane: Not an anti-Semite

    By Rob Eshman

    February 25, 2013 | 2:59 pm

    No one sends out press releases to announce that something is not anti-semitic. 

    That’s why this morning’s media is full of reports that host Seth MacFarlane’s Oscar performance last night was just shy of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s U.N. speech. 

    The Anti-Defamation League was first...

  • Terry Gross v. Howard Stern

    By Rob Eshman

    July 24, 2012 | 3:02 pm

    This is a blog post with an unfair headline.

    In her interview with Andrew Goldman in Sunday’s New York Times Magazine, NPR Fresh Air host Terry Gross has very nice things to say about Howard Stern.  Here’s the good parts:

    AG: When you interviewed Gene Simmons in 2002, he said some...

  • Howard Stern and the Parents Television Council Fallacy

    By Rob Eshman

    May 15, 2012 | 2:30 am

    Why do journalists covering Howard Stern’s debut on NBC’s America’s Got Talent tonight keep quoting the Parents Television Council opposition to Stern as somehow important?

    Howard Stern went national tonight—and America’s most reviled DJ began the transformation into...

  • Sacha Baron Cohen To Howard Stern: You inspired me [AUDIO]

    By Rob Eshman

    May 8, 2012 | 1:35 pm

    Sacha Baron Cohen spoke to Howard Stern Tuesday morning, not as Borat or Bruno or The Dictator, but as an even more elusive character: Sacha Baron Cohen.

    The British comedian famously refuses to do interviews out of character, even going so far as appearing at this year’s Academy...

  • Gefilte Fish Season

    By Rob Eshman

    March 13, 2012 | 1:50 pm

    How do you know it’s Spring?  The gefilte fish are running.  The news is full of stories, references and recipes to the iconic Passover food.

    This morning on the Howard Stern Show, supermodel Elle MacPherson weighed in by recounting how she hand-fed her first boyfriend gefilte fish,...

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    January 11, 2012 | 1:44 pm

    Five minutes late to an interview at House Cafe on Beverly Boulevard, Jonah Hill apologizes like a contrite teenager. “I’m sorry I’m tardy,” he says, explaining he’d just flown in from shooting “Neighborhood Watch” in Atlanta and was scrambling to finish his Chanukah shopping.  His...

  • Howard Stern’s got talent?

    By Lauren Bottner

    November 11, 2011 | 10:36 am

    It’s been a big week for Howard Stern between chatting with ousted Oscars producer Brett Ratner and negotiating with NBC.

    Stern, the infamous radio jock, is in talks with NBC to become the next “America’s Got Talent” judge, replacing Piers Morgan.

    If he decides to join...

  • Opinion: My lunch with Lefsetz

    November 4, 2011 | 9:55 am

    Do you know about Bob Lefsetz? 

    He is a middle-age guru living in Santa Monica.  For 25 years, he’s been commenting on our culture in an idiosyncratic independent newsletter — first in hard copy, then in an e-mail newsletter and now in an online blog. 

    I first heard of him...

  • Andy Dick Lives Up to His Name

    By Ilana Angel

    August 18, 2011 | 7:51 pm

    I have never met Andy Dick and I am not familiar with his “career”, but I still feel completely comfortable saying that I think he is a complete and total asshole.  Seriously, this guy is a mess and the best thing he can do for his career is shut up. 

    Seeing as he has no...

  • Fartman, Stern, and the MAD Roots of It All

    By Rob Eshman

    June 24, 2011 | 7:15 pm

    I was reading Mary-Lou Weisman’s biography of Al Jaffee, the legendary cartoonist and writer for MAD magazine, and came across Jaffee’s drawing of his first childhood superhero, a man his father called “Fartman.”  Fartman was a fat old European who sat on a park bench in Al’s first...

  • The Greatest Living American Humorist

    By Rob Eshman

    June 21, 2011 | 2:38 am

    So there’s a post over at Slate.com, “America’s Greatest Living Humorists: Parker and Stone, or Larry David?”

    The author, Jeremy Stahl, goes back and forth trying to decide who is our number one funny man:  the creators of South Park, Team America and The Book of Mormon, or the...

  • Anthony Weiner Can Learn From Stern

    By Rob Eshman

    June 15, 2011 | 7:45 am

    I’m watching Anthony Weiner roast in public humiliation, and I can’t help thinking: If he had only paid attention to Howard.

    The congressman, whose shocking shirtless tweets have by now pretty much sunk his political career, is a classic case of someone who used the Howard...

  • Howard Stern and the Rise of the Wiener

    By Rob Eshman

    June 7, 2011 | 10:45 am

    We are living through a time of unprecedented penis talk.

    Between Congressman Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal, and the attempts to ban circumcision through the ballot box, the news cycle has turned into one long crotch watch.

    And who deserves credit for making the world safe for...

  • Train Rocks the Jews [VIDEO]

    By Rob Eshman

    May 26, 2011 | 1:00 pm

    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...

  • Getting Gary Down

    By Rob Eshman

    March 17, 2011 | 1:19 pm

    The Howard 100 News Team did a piece on my last post about Gary Dellabate’s leadership woes.  Gary, it turns out, was not a fan.

    After the news piece I genuinely felt bad for being perceived as piling on Gary—a popular Stern Show sport. I meant every word I wrote about what an...

  • Gary Dellabate’s Lesson in Non-Leadership

    By Rob Eshman

    March 16, 2011 | 4:47 pm

    Sometimes I listen to Howard to learn what to do—these are what I call the Stern Rules.  (By the way, a business writer not long ago enumerated some of his own, well worth reading here).

    And sometimes I listen to Howard to learn what NOT to do.

    Yes, Gary, I’m talking about you....

  • Stern Pushes Charlie Sheen Joke Farther

    By Rob Eshman

    March 3, 2011 | 1:27 pm

    A couple of days ago someone thought to compare Charlie Sheen quotes to Qadaffi quotes.  Funny bit.  Picked up and done everywhere by now, even CNN spotlighted the idea.

    But here’s Howard—pushing the idea WAY further.  Today on the show Howard had Robin play a game where she had to...

  • Ashley Madison HEARTS Howard Stern

    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...

  • Piers Morgan and Howard Stern: A Rematch?

    By Rob Eshman

    January 24, 2011 | 12:55 pm

    Steve Langford of the Howard 100 News Team interviewed me by phone this morning about my last blog post.  I love being interviewed by Steve: it is exactly as if you’re talking to a New York Times reporter, or a field producer for 60 Minutes.  The questions are well-informed, always...

  • 5 Lessons Piers Morgan Can Learn from Howard Stern [VIDEO]

    By Rob Eshman

    January 20, 2011 | 11:53 pm

    I tuned in to watch CN’s Larry King-replacement Piers Morgan interview Howard Stern earlier this week. By the end of it it was clear to me why Howard is at the top of his game and Piers is.. really popular in England.  I’m going to boil down my observations this way: when Morgan...

  • Will Howard Stern Leave Sirius? Or Vice Versa?

    By Rob Eshman

    September 7, 2010 | 9:45 pm

    Howard has been hinting that things aren’t working out between him and Sirius.  In four months, his contract is up, and there’s a good chance, judging by his comments, he won’t renew.  But he doesn’t seem particularly upset: He seems to have an option under wraps that will...

    By Rob Eshman

    September 6, 2010 | 10:30 am

    The comedian, writer, thinker and mensch Larry Miller has a beautiful tribute to Robert Schimmel on his blog today. Schimmel was a regular Howard Stern guest.  As funny as his stand up was, there was something in the interactions between him and Howard that unleashed an even funnier,...

    By Rob Eshman

    August 26, 2010 | 5:04 pm

    This blog is devoted to examining the effects of Howard Stern on the culture at large.  These days a lot of his on air discussion revolves around whether or not he’ll renew his contract with Sirius and stay on the radio as a morning broadcaster. 

    I can’t imagine what it’s like...

  • Anthony Bourdain: The “Howard Stern” of Chefs

    By Rob Eshman

    August 3, 2010 | 5:14 pm

    Last night the only good food show on TV, “No Reservations,” featured a documentary on the host, Anthony Bourdain.  In the midst of it, Chef Beth Aretsky referred to Bourdain as, “The Howard Stern of chefs.”

    It was an off-handed comment, just slipped into an hour-long documentary,...

    By Rob Eshman

    May 18, 2010 | 5:01 pm

    Howard Stern brought stripping out of the shadows and into the main stream, featuring strippers of all types, shapes and sizes on his radio show from the earliest days.  In the beginning mainstream media dismissed this as crass and inappropriate.  Now there are stripper aerobics in...
