12.7.17 Bee-otch of the Day: The Republican Party


Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on Chuck69.com.

-------


 

Name: The Republican Party
Age: 153
Occupation: right-winged assholes
Last Seen: Washington, DC
Bee-otched For: not doing the right thing



--
Today was a bittersweet day in the world of politics and comedy.

Former SNL comic and Minnesota senator Al Franken announced that he's resigning over the allegations brought on by several women that he assaulted them. In a speech today on Capitol Hill, he said that it was a shame that he's leaving while there's a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office, plus the fact that the Republicans are embracing a pedophile in Alabama.

OK, so Franken is a sick man and probably needs help. But what he did is NOTHING comparing to what Drumpf and Roy Moore did in the past. It is a shame that Franken, who up until the allegations broke out was one of the best senators in the US has now seen his star fade into oblivion.

The Dems made the right decision to step away from Franken, so why can't the Repukes do the same to Moore and Drumpf? Plus, why do they defend them? IMHO, it might be the simple gesture of forgiveness. Yes, The Bible preaches it, but the thing is, it does not erase the scars of the past. Moore and Drumpf's victims should be upset that the two are very powerful and use their positions in life to get what they want. True, nobody's above the law, even the president. This means that even if you're the Commander in Chief, keep your damn hands to yourself.

All I can say is that when there's a special election in Minnesota, they'll vote for a candidate that's not some right-winged whack job that's in line with Drumpf. Minnesotans know better. America does need change, but not the one Drumpf is leading us to.

Minnesotans need somebody who's good enough, smart enough, and doggone it, people - er, never mind.

12.6.17 Bee-otches of the Day: Orin Harris and Holly Jane Kusserow-Smidt


Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on Chuck69.com.

-------

 
 

Names: Orin Harris and Holly Jane Kusserow-Smidt
Ages: 76, 63
Occupations: former broadcaster and teacher
Last Seen: Forest City, IA
Bee-otched For: being a bunch of racist assholes



--
You know, I love radio stations that STILL have a local staff.

Many stations - including here in Grand Rapids - rely on voicetracking and cyberjocking to save a few bucks on having locals behind the mic. iHeartMedia stations here in Beer City, USA - especially WSNX - are probably the biggest culprits.

However, sometimes, live and local jocks can be downright assholes.

Take Orin Harris and Holly Jane Kusserow-Smidt, who formerly worked at KIOW/Mix 107.3 in Forest City, IA. Harris broadcasted basketball games while Kusserow-Smidt - an elementary school teacher during the day - board-opped during the games.

A week ago Tuesday, the two were working a game between Forest City and nearby Eagle Grove. During a commercial break, the two discussed three players on the opposing Eagle Grove team who happened to be Hispanic. They made racist comments about the high school players and Harris even said "go back to where you came from!"

Although the comments did not go over the air at KIOW, a full-service radio station that covers northern Iowa that plays mostly adult contemporary, the comments were heard on Facebook Live. Needless to say, the two's comments did not go over well with the locals. As a result, the two were fired from KIOW and Kusserow-Smidt was put on paid leave. In a statement, Harris apologized for the comments, and since he was going to retire next year, he's upset that it had to end that way.

Well, duh! What a bunch of fucked up, backwoods assholes. People should be judged by TALENT, not their skin color. It was right for KIOW to can the two and I hope whomever replaces them does a better job. If that kind of racism speaks about the people of that small town in Iowa, remind me to stay the hell away from there.

Maybe those two hicks should go back to where they came from.

12.5.17 Bee-otch of the Day: Donald Trump


Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on Chuck69.com.

-------

 

Name: Donald Trump
Age: 71
Occupation: lead asshole of Nerdo Crumbezia
Last Seen: Washington, DC
Bee-otched For: making all the wrong decisions



--
After weeks of thinking, Drumpf has come up with a decision in regards to the Alabama senate fight: he's going to support the sick fuck known as Roy Moore.

The Bible-thumping ex-judge gained the support of the de facto president yesterday, who said that we didn't need a liberal Democrat in the senate. Right now, Moore is trailing opponent Doug Jones by four points. The special senate election is next week. Jones even got a $100 donation from outgoing Arizona senator Jeff Flake, who wrote "country over party" on the check.

Of course, this is an asshole who has 18 women who have all claimed that he either groped, harassed and over raped them.

These have been a turbulent past few days for Drumpf, with his tax plan passing the senate but seeing Michael Flynn admitting his guilt for lying to the FBI. Who knows? Jared Kutchner might be next and then Drumpf himself!

Hopefully, Drumpf will be in a jail cell a year by now. Hopefully, he'll be in jail before his tax plan passes and we'll all be saved from another 2008.

2020 can't come soon enough.

12.4.17 Bee-otch of the Day: The Detroit Lions


Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on Chuck69.com.

-------

 

Name: Detroit Lions
Age: 87
Occupation: football team
Last Seen: Detroit, MI
Bee-otched For: failing at everything



--
This past weekend, the Detroit Lions taught us all a lesson: they implode better on the field.

On Sunday, crews tried to blow up the team's former stadium, the Pontiac Silverdome. Several pillars collapsed, but the dilapidated 42-year-old stadium still stood. Immediately, people took to social media to make fun of the botched implosion, comparing it to the team itself.

Later on that day, the Lions were in Baltimore, fighting the Ravens. Despite having the second-worst defense in the NFL, the birds successfully attacked the Lions, 44-20. It didn't help matters that the team's $160 million quarterback, Matthew Stafford got stomped on his hand in the fourth quarter and was forced to leave the game. The team's replacement QB, Jake Rudock, threw an interception, cementing the Lions' loss.

Right now, the Lions are 6-6 on the season. Next week, they play the 4-8 Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They could easily win all their games the rest of the season and go straight into the playoffs, but let's remember: this is the Lions we're talking about.

Every year, people say that this is the Lions' year. True, the team made it into the playoffs, but the sad reality is that the team hasn't done jack shit since 1957. It was the final year the Kitty Cats won the NFL Championship, a full ten years before the words "Super Bowl" made it into our vocabulary. In the 27 years the Lions called the Silverdome home, they've only won one playoff game. Also, because of its high 80,000 capacity, many games were blacked out on local television per NFL rules. It was also the home of the Detroit Pistons from 1978 to 1988 when they moved to the Palace of Auburn Hills just the road.

Maybe the Silverdome's best-known feat was in 1987 when it was the home of Wrestlemania. 93,000 people watched Hulk Hogan defeat the enormous Andre the Giant in person.

Since the Lions left the 'Dome, it's mostly sat vacant and unloved. The dome itself collapsed a few years ago and the property was condemned. Many made videos of themselves at the Silverdome doing everything from BMX biking to just looking at the remains of the stadium.

This afternoon, the second time proved to be the charm and a huge chunk of the outside of the Silverdome was finally imploded. Even though it wasn't a total implosion, the company in charge claimed that it was a success. OK, so why couldn't they simply blow it up and call it good? The implosions of such stadiums as Texas Stadium, the RCA Dome and the Kingdome were awesome, but let's face it, the demolition of the Silverdome was weak-sauced in comparison. Quite simply, it's like the Lions themselves: you have high expectations, but in the end, you tell yourself, "this is it?"

The Detroit Lions: rebuilding since '57. The Silverdome, however is dead and almost gone.

11.30.17 Bee-otch of the Day: Cumulus


Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on Chuck69.com.

-------

 

Name: Cumulus Media
Age: 20
Occupation: broadcast giant
Last Seen: Atlanta, GA
Bee-otched For: officially proving that they've failed

--
In the world of radio, it seems that failure is indeed an option. Want proof? Look at Cumulus.

The media Goliath announced this week that they've filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The company is riddled with $2.4 billion in debt and was recently demoted out of NASDAQ and onto the pink sheets because their stock price had been under a dollar for quite some time.

Today, Cumulus was trading at a whopping nine cents per share.

To add insult to injury, Cumulus apparently is in arrears with Nielsen in regard to ratings. As a result, in the trends, none of their stations in Grand Rapids were ranked.

A few years ago, I somewhat cheered when they bought out Citadel and fired Matt Hanlon. However, they did extremely little to fix his messes here in Grand Rapids. The only major change that they made here in town was when they switched Thunder 94.5 to another one of their Nash country outlets. Also, they lost the Tigers and Red Wings to iHeartMedia's cluster. All they have left are the Lions.

The only station they have in GR that's doing anything these days is WLAV. The rest are all their competitors' bitches (i.e. B93 is beating Nash, WSNX is ahead of 105.3 Hot FM and WOOD-AM/FM is WAAAAY ahead of WJRW. Lets not forget 96.1 ESPN, which would be CREAMING WBBL if they didn't move their hosts around and so on).

The truth is, Cumulus deserves to be bankrupt. The funny thing is was that 16 years ago, they ordered all their Howard Stern affiliates to drop the show, claiming it was too expensive. Look at his former Toledo station: the ratings crumbled and they ended up switching format multiple times. Both Citadel and Cumulus were/are anti-Stern companies and in the end, they got what they got.

Oh, and speaking of Toledo, Don't get us started on 1470 AM, which went dark.

I laugh at those companies that ditch Stern and in the end, they're billions in debt because they don't think like a Stern listener. A man who loves prime rib doesn't like rawhide. With so many going to the internet and satellite, it's proof that with billions in debt, corporate radio is dying a slow, painful death.

So, what's next for Cumulus? At nine cents per share, who knows? Plus, what companies are buying? Personally, I'd like to see WKLQ be reborn here in Grand Rapids, but hell will freeze over when that happens (although I heard that Free Beer and Hot Wings' contract is set to expire). Same with firing Bill Simonson. Asshole doesn't even have a two share and is a waste of money. It shows that corporate radio has a high tolerance of failure, even when the stock price is under a penny.

Cumulus, how low can you go?

11.29.17 Bee-otch of the Day: NBC


Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on Chuck69.com.

-------

 

Name: The National Broadcasting Company
Age: 91
Occupation: broadcast giant
Last Seen: New York, NY
Bee-otched For: allowing one brick to fall, but allowing others to stay

--
OK, so when will guys learn that women don't want to see their junk or even be touched? Obviously, the likes of Harvey Weinstein, Charlie Rose, Louis CK, Al Franken, John Conyers and - gotta throw this in - Drumpf all haven't gotten the memo.

Now, it's time to throw Matt Lauer's name onto the list.

This morning, the world was stunned when his Today Show co-anchor, Savannah Guthrie, fought back tears as it was announced that he had been terminated from NBC over a memo that network brass had received from a female coworker of his that he had done something inappropriate to her. Allegedly, the action occurred during the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

Lauer had been a part of Today since 1994 as a news anchor. In 1997, he moved up to the male co-anchor chair with Katie Couric, where he remained for 20 years, making him one of the show's longest-serving hosts. Of course, the female anchor position changed many times over the years with Couric, Meredith Viera, Ann Curry and Guthrie. When Curry was let go from the show a few years ago, many blamed Lauer for her dismissal. Once a strong #1 in the morning ratings, the show has since dipped to second place behind ABC's Good Morning America.

The news of Lauer's firing from the Peacock Net comes a week after his CBS This Morning competition, Charlie Rose was also 86'd when several women claimed the same thing. He was also dismissed from his long-running PBS show.

Now, what Lauer allegedly did was probably disgusting. After all, it was sickening enough for NBC to fire him. But that's not why I'm handing NBC the honor of Bee-otch of the Day today. It's because quite simply, The Today Show sucks.

I felt that Lauer was a decent newsman up until this incident was revealed. But the sad thing is, NBC has been milking the shit out of the show like it's the only show they have to offer at times. The show is on the air four hours in the morning and to add insult to injury, they repeat the fourth hour with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb at 2:05 a.m. on many stations. The fact that NBC also decided to hand the third hour of the show to Megyn Kelley shows how fucking stupid they are.

Oh, and let's not forget that those happy-go-lucky news stories done by Dubya's little girl, Jenna. How many "#metoo" moments did she have to have to get her job? Every time I see that fat ho on my TV screen, I grab the remote. "Hi! My Daddy's stupidity killed 3,000 on 9/11 and 4,000 more in Iraq and Afghanistan! I need a job!"

To me, it's laughable seeing NBC News falling apart. As a believer in karma, I'm happy that they were forced to kick Brian Williams from the anchor chair and now, Matt Lauer after what they did to MSNBC and its once-proud left lean. Ed Schultz = GONE. Keith Olbermann = GONE. And so on. Now, it's a weird mix of what little left-wing influence they have left plus the right-winged assholes they now have like Hugh Hewlett. Granted, it is somewhat awesome that they've gotten back to being a little more to the left again, but that's only after they've realized that there's only one Fox News Channel and they're not them. Parent Comcast kissing Republican ass over net neutrality laws only got them fucked hardcore in the long run, which is why the Nightly News and Today are down in second place while scandal-free ABC is in first place comfortably.

NBC, ya gotta lotta work to do.
