Following the FCC ruling to approve the WWXX license renewal, attorney John Banzhaf said he has many more arrows in his quiver. "The law is clear, that employers must take steps to avoid and correct any racially hostile work environments, even if the employer is a newspaper which enjoys the highest level of First Amendment protection. Thus radio and TV stations, which as regulatees enjoy far less First Amendment protection than newspapers, cannot hide behind the Constitution regarding this allegation."
Banzhaf went on, "Virtually everyone seems to assume that no radio or TV station which repeatedly and unnecessarily used racial slurs like 'n*ggers, 'ch*nks,' 'k*kes,' etc., on the air would be allowed to continue broadcasting, much less have its valuable broadcasting license renewed. All we seek here is that Native Americans be given the same protection as African Americans, Asians, and other racial and ethnic groups."

To Mr. Banzhaf: I suppose "Cleveland Indians" will be next to go...

Of course he's not giving up. His kind never do. He's a tenured academic who gets paid whether he produces anything valuable or not. And in this case, the only thing he's produced is more sound and fury, signifying exactly zilch.
