Much DK attention is going to the news reports of the arrest of the Sandy Hook "Truther" who stole memorial signs and harassed the victim's families. But what is getting less attention is how talk radio stations across America encourage this insanity in programs like "Ground Zero," which broadcasts in Virginia where this "Truther" lived:
Don't just complain about it! You can contact the Virginia stations and tell them (politely) that in view of this incident, to take GZ off their stations:
and to these emails:,,,

Plus! Contact the FCC, which has a "public interest" requirement for broadcasting, and issue a complaint about how encouraging mental illness in not in the public insterest:

   FCC complaint form

    *(1) Date of Program:     12/04/2013
    *(2) Time of Program: 09:00 PM    
    *(3) Network:  Premiere Radio / Clear Channel
    *(4) Call Sign, Channel OR Frequency of the station on which you viewed/heard the material:     KXL FM
    *(5) City and State Where Program Was Viewed/Heard: Portland, OR  
    *(6) Name of Program or DJ/Personality/Song/Film: Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis

   Please include below as many details about the program as possible in order to help the FCC determine whether the material was obscene, profane, and/or indecent  (such as specific words, language, images, etc.).

   It's indecent, obscene and not in the public interest to encourage citizens to believe that the grieving family of the children killed in the Sandy Hook grade school were "actors." It's political pornography. It doesn't belong on the public airwaves.

   Clyde Lewis said that "crisis actors" were used at the Sandy Hook shooting, which was "manipulated to the point that it was faked" as part of an "agenda."  Lewis said that "there were people there you could single out as crisis actors." Lewis specifically referred to one of the grieving parents, Robbie Parker, the father of six-year-old daughter who was killed, as an actor faking his role. "They hired some people to come in and pretend like they were parents," Lewis said, "and they hired some people to come in and pretend like they were there and witnessing it all."

   We don't have things like Holocaust Denial, for example, on our airwaves. We can't have this either.

More about the host:
Lewis endorses or entertains the possibility of a myriad of bizarre conspiracies and farfetched supernatural phenomena. In a 2012 interview Lewis allowed as how beings from outer space have come to earth and "They are here to eat us...We are being farmed for our organs."[1] He also believes the moon landing in 1969 was faked.[2] Lewis also maintains that Barack Hussein Obama was born in Africa and is therefore not eligible to be President of the United States. He also claims that Obama "was conceived during a CIA operation" to infiltrate "communists" because "the communists were black at that time."[3] Lewis regularly cites weather control by the government or "rogue scientists" to manipulate global politics, once suggesting that Hurricane Sandy was created to help Obama by delaying the 2012 presidential election.[4] He also says Prince William of Britain "has every chance of being the Anti-Christ" and claims Men in Black once bombed his car "to scare him".[5

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
