Hey, I said I never worked for him -- only met him and enjoyed talking to him.
I know nothing about his time at KOMA-AM.

I simply asked the other guy if he knew Garth.
You did, and you expressed your opinion.
I read it OK?
No big deal.
I met Garth once and related my experience with him. It was positive. That is all I know.

You are mixed up man.
You have no First Amendment rights on Radio-Info ... none.
It is privately operated and owned.
They can deleted anything and everything if they wished.
Fortunately, Safford gives us wide latitude.
But again, you are totally confused about First Amendment rights on Radio-Info. You simply have no First Amendment rights.
Go on the LA board. You will see what I mean.
Besides, if you know that little about the First Amendment, you had no business in a newsroom.
For the record, I worked as a reporter on radio, "The Daily Oklahoman" and UPI.
If this sort of right disgusts you then

Again, you do not know what you are talking about.
You are totally confused about First Amendment rights.
Check into Journalism 101.
You need, my friend.
