1 His show started out good, but then he began selling out his core Conservative audience, and pandering to blacks. The beginning of the end for me was when he did yet another pandering show featuring him rapping with some bruthas at the beginning. This was the same guy who whined about the content of heavy metal records, but gangsta rap is OK because that's made by people you can make "kissy-ass" with? He boned irreversibly when he made up the story about being attacked by skinheads in a restroom because of his show's anti-racism themes. By this time, his show was tanking the ratings, because liberals never liked him and conservatives saw him as a sellout kiss-ass. This final act of desperation did him in career-wise. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 17, 2012, 2:13 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Boned ten fish on the day his Sacramento radio show first aired. Boned a hundred more when his TV show first aired. Boned five hundred more when he had worthless puke Axl Rose on his show (and the two of them quickly formed an intensely nauseating mutual admiration society). Boned a thousand fish when he returned to Trash Radio after the TV show was cancelled. Boned five thousand more when he returned to TV. Boned ten thousand more when that venture predictably failed and he returned to radio for the third and last time. Lay all the fish this guy boned end to end and you could walk on them all the way to the moon. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 10, 2011, 4:01 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I can't say I agreed with everything he said but I will always admire the fact that he ADMITTED cigarettes were what doomed him and strongly urged young folks not to start(as did Yul Brynner) when he could have kept the denial to the end- oblivious to others' following the coffin nail worshipping example. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 5, 2010, 9:49 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Well this was an entertaining show. R.I.P. Mort. Mort is chain smoking in purgatory. -- Submitted By: (fletch000) on February 7, 2010, 11:51 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
