Howard Stern

Just as ruined the Internet, Howard Stern ruined the radio. It can of course be argued that these are things meant to be ruined. And what can bring more joy than a man having sex with a realdoll broadcast live nationwide? One sore spot: we're still waiting for the King of All Media's production of Fartman.
