Clear Channel Communications has dropped the Howard Stern Show for indecency:
Clear Channel Communications, the biggest radio broadcaster in the nation, suspended the Howard Stern show from its stations yesterday after announcing a policy to prevent the broadcasting of indecent content.

The moves by Clear Channel came after it fired a talk-show host who broadcast sexually explicit material.

"Clear Channel drew a line in the sand today with regard to protecting our listeners from indecent content, and Howard Stern's show blew right through it," Clear Channel Radio's president, John Hogan, said in a statement. The statement did not specifically describe the content but said it "was vulgar, offensive and insulting, not just to women and African Americans but to anyone with a sense of common decency.''

I think maybe we're starting to get their attention.
