I have been an active critic of the type of talk radio John and Ken Show on KFI AM640 represent: obtuse, callous, hate-filled propaganda against any and all groups not "American enough".
Our airing of Jorge-Mario Cabrera's business cellphone number on the show was legal, but morally it wasn't the right thing to do. Doing it was a mistake. We've apologized, a lot, and we mean it.
For too long, John and Ken have spit venom for ratings and money. The time is now for the people to rise up and demand a more accountable media and to demand that John and Ken be removed from the air.
If Clear Channel is sincere about their intent to serve Los Angeles' diverse communities they should take John and Ken off the air immediately.
It is clear we differ on how our beautiful nation benefits from its immigrant community but such differences should not descend into the abyss of destructive, racist, divisive demagoguery that passes for free speech.
