Reader: Neal Boortz's apology for Obama theater-shooting remarks doesn't cut it

Neal Boortz.
Amid our coverage of the Aurora theater shooting last week, we noted a tweet by talk-show host Neal Boortz attacking President Barack Obama for commenting about his shock and sadness over the event. Boortz subsequently sent out an apology tweet about the post, but many of our readers weren't impressed. Like this one, for instance.

lkwcanine writes:

Honestly, he ought to b ashamed of himself. His original Tweet is bad enough; his follow up apology is downright embarrassing. If you can't think of anything kind to say today, perhaps it's a great day to just shut the hell up.

Perhaps more people calling the radio stations who abet Boortz' ravings will persuade them to stop -- Boortz claims he will retire next Jan. 1, but this date should be moved up!

Calling and complaining won't stop shit, BOYCOTTING their Advertisers will.

 

The ONLY thing that will get ANY commercial media cancelled is FINANCIAL failure.

 

So until the advertisers stop paying $$ to promote their products/services on his show, and until mindless consumers stop purchasing those products/services -- as a direct result of boycotting said show -- the show will go on.
