Stern Rethinks Cancer Comments On "60 Minutes"
December 2, 2005 at 4:33 AM (PT)
A CBS preview of the "60 MINUTES" profile of HOWARD STERN shows the radio personality rethinking some of the things he's previously said on the radio. Asked by ED BRADLEY about wishing cancer on former FCC Commissioner ALFRED SIKES in 1992, STERN tells BRADLEY, "You know what, I don’t know that I would do that now. I’m older... When I get angry and really fired up and feel like my back is up against the wall, I will say vicious things. Rather than hide that, I would rather put that out on the radio and let someone see the full range of [my] emotions."
I donâ??t know that I would do that now. Iâ??m older...
STERN isn't apologetic, however, adding that "If you’re going to be strong on the radio, you’ve got to let it all hang out – even the ugly stuff – and you can’t apologize for it." The profile will air on SUNDAY's installment of the show.
