LETTERS TO THE TIMES

Radio Station Makes an Example of Loh

March 09, 2004

Re "The Bleep That Never Was," Commentary, March 7: The whining in Sandra Tsing Loh's posturing as just a Bette Midler fan gone wild sounds like the typical motorist caught speeding. Why me? The rule that in the media even bad news is good news because the only thing that matters is getting some coverage is making us sick. Go KCRW!

My TV has stood cold for many years now, and my radio dial is set to public broadcasting affiliates almost exclusively, because the only alternative to censorship is listener selectivity. I'm the most free-speech liberal you'll ever meet, but if "responsibility" in public radio is beige, it's now my favorite color.

No Loh, no dough -- from my husband and me! KCRW can take us off its list of subscribers. How absurd that KCRW fired Loh because she used a bad word on a taped show! If KCRW is so concerned about bad language, then General Manager Ruth Seymour should listen to taped shows before broadcasting them; seems as if Seymour was asleep at the wheel. If anyone should have been fired it was Seymour and not Loh.

It is unfortunate that Loh finds it necessary to use indecent language in public radio to be comic.
