Default Opie and Anthony suspended

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Shock jocks "Opie & Anthony" were suspended on Tuesday from their satellite radio show for 30 days after remarks by a guest who said he fantasized about sex with U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and first lady Laura Bush.

In the latest outcry over radio content widely criticized as crossing the bounds of good taste, the company that carries the show, XM Satellite Radio Holdings Inc., said it "deplored" the comments made about a week ago on the program, hosted by Gregg "Opie" Hughes and Anthony Cumia.

The hosts issued an apology soon after the original airing, but XM said it was not convinced the two were sincere.

"Comments made by Opie and Anthony on yesterday's broadcast put into question whether they appreciate the seriousness of the matter," the company said in a statement.

"The management of XM Radio decided to suspend Opie and Anthony to make clear that our on-air talent must take seriously the responsibility that creative freedom requires of them."

Last month, CBS Radio fired talk-show host Don Imus after he referred to a Rutgers University women's basketball team as "nappy-headed hos," stirring an uproar about the remarks that many people found racially offensive.

But while CBS Radio is a traditional broadcaster bound by U.S. indecency rules, satellite radio has touted its ability to remain a haven of uncensored, freewheeling speech.

Shock jock Howard Stern left CBS at the end of 2006 after signing a $500 million contract with Sirius Satellite Radio , describing his decision as an effort to flee broadcast censorship.

Officials at Sirius, which has agreed to a merger deal with XM, were not immediately available for comment on the Opie & Anthony decision.

What the fuck is wrong with saying you want to bang Condie and Laura Bush? Does this mean if _____ goes outside and says he thinks Condoleezza Rice is hot and wants to get in bed with her, that a cop will pull up and fine him? Seriously, what the fuck? Not to mention it's fucking Satalite Radio, which is supposed to be the creative playground with no rules for radio personalities.

I don't know the whole story, but this seems really stupid to me.
