Fla. station fined $4,000 for Castro prank
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MIAMI -- A radio station that crank-called Cuban
President Fidel Castro and broadcast the recording
should be fined $4,000, the Federal Communications
Commission said.

The Spanish-speaking hosts of "The Morning High Jinks"
used snippets of an earlier prank involving Venezuelan
President Hugo Chavez to move the call from a
receptionist up the chain to Castro in a five-minute
broadcast June 17.

The hosts of the show on WXDJ-FM, Joe Ferrero and
Enrique Santos, fed pleasantries to Castro before
breaking in and calling him an assassin. The
conversation ended after Castro denounced the callers
with a stream of vulgarities.

The FCC concluded Friday that the station should be
fined for the broadcast. It rejected the station's
claim that a rule requiring people to be notified
before their voices are used does not apply to people
in Cuba.

Payment of the fine or a request for cancellation or
reduction is required within 30 days.

It was unclear whether the station had been fined for
the prank involving Chavez five months before.

There was no answer at the station's business line
Saturday, and a call to the station's Washington
attorney was not immediately returned.

What would that be? Getting down to take a look at a lowly life-form such as
yourself?

LOL!

Why would the FCC give a rat's ass about someone calling a foreign
country and upsetting a dictator??

The fact that you and your ilk believes that is exactly why radio is the
vast wasteland it is today. Go back to elementary school and tell some fart
jokes.

Simply put - it is against FCC rules to broadcast a telephone call with
consent from all parties involved.  Nothing political at work - just a plain
and simple rule violation.

What's George W. Bush's phone number? Oh sorry, if we upset him, he'll
probably invade another country.

I think you mean "without" consent from all parties involved.

Most Probably Iran.

Syria has little oil reserves and
North Korea would likely attack South Korea with
more ferocity than they would us. (..thus making many
USA owners of Kia and Hyundai cars and vans very
upset as they will not be able to get spare parts for
the same out of Korea for some time, thus driving another
voting bloc to the John Kerry/DNC camp)

Looks like it's Iran 2 me boys. They got 80% as much oil
reserves in the ground as Iraq does, and a strict islamic govt
that Bush and his xian right-wing "handlers" such as
Pat Robertson would love to see replaced by another
"New American Century" type Viceroy like Paul Bremmer.

Of course this means expanding our military operations
via an eventual Draft in our Vietnam-Act-II in the Middle
East. (..assuming that Al Queda does not take out a major
USA city in the meantime in retrobution via an ex-USSR
nuke smuggled in via Mexico in a semi-trailer, in which case
then, all bets are off)

Great leadership we have in Wash DC eh boys?
*sleep well!*  : )

I like this.  Maximum buzz words strung together literately, and you
actually have to read it closely to figure out you don't know what
you're talking about.

Actually, that's not a bad idea, now that you've mentioned it.
We could go back to the dollar-a-gallon days.
I sure wish there was a geopolitics suggestion box.
Yours is a winner!

The only problem with that idea is, we'd have to construct
massive reeducation camps, because they appear to be
***ed to Socialism.

The only things Canada has going for them, as I see it,
are Tim Horton's and Blatter & Blatter.
