If they do this it will be worse for them. They can't play it down if there is nothing there it automatically makes them look guilty. I emailed Mike Florio a link to this thread and pretty much copied the OP's comment and sent it to him. I doubt anything will come of it, but the more people that hear about it the more heat we can bring to the people at the radio station.

You're probably right. If the audio did get released and it is as bad as the OP claimed, then I would definitely expect them to get fired. But since none of us will actually hear it, it looks like all we'll get is a stupid apology.

I thought his point was that they have a right to say it (true) and complaining about them saying it is equivalent to complaining about free speech (false). That's how I took it at least. Bringing up free speech was irrelevent imo.

Even then they wouldn't get fired, especially since it will generate ratings for them. They would really have to cross a line and unfortunately making fun of disabilities/disease isn't that line. Had he been gay and they mocked him, then they may get fired because the LBGT community would get behind the cause and they would have power in numbers.
