So I'm home right now listening to 610 WIP. I don't know if I've ever heard more hatred towards a person, and more biased journalism in my life.
Basically it goes down like this (610 WIP) "Ok caller tell us what you think about the Mike Vick signing" (Caller) I think it's horrible he should be in prison for life or better yet, put him in a cage with 3 hungry dogs and let them fight it out" (610 WIP) " We couldn't agree more, he's a sick person and shouldn't be a part of society, thanks for the call you're a genious" (610 WIP) "Ok caller tell us what you think about this stupid signing by the Eagles" (Caller) I think he deserves another cha...*CLICK* (610 WIP) "HANG UP ON THAT IDIOT, YOUR OPINION IS DUMB! We've talked to millions of Eagles fans and they're all giving away their tickets. You're and idiot for calling!" It has basically been going on all night like this.
Merrill called in and didn't say anything about the signing being stupid or bad the for the Eagles and they just laughed after he called and basically said "See even Merrill's on board with us on this subject." UGH. They even had a fan call in and say he didn't want us to win the Super Bowl if Vick was on this team.
I don't know if they screen calls and only let the controversial callers that support their cause through, but they definitely got to speak their minds and weren't hung up on. They also weren't called idiots after they were disconnected.
I hope that the fan base isn't saying this around the Philly area. It seems like we've handled it pretty good here.
