No Sirius Please, We're Hyundai
Inside Line reports that Hyundai has chosen XM Satellite Radio over competitor Sirius Satellite Radio at least in part because Sirius will host Howard Stern starting next year (Howard Stern "Sirius"-ly Turns Off Hyundai Customers):
John Krafcik, Hyundai vice president of product development and strategic planning, told Inside Line that executives were stunned by the number of "unprompted write-ins" on the survey that said customers were "not comfortable with programming from Stern."
Didn't anyone mention to the customers that, with the vast number of channels available via satellite radio, they didn't have to listen to Stern? Or that they could block his station? Has XM Radio sworn off any offensive content?
Now Hyundai can do whatever it wants. However, it is this sort of ridiculousness behind continued censorship by the FCC.
