Fresh Air, your mom’s favorite late night talk show (in bed by 4PM, no BUTS), has been censored in Mississippi. Because of an interview with Louis C.K. From Jewcy:

Terry Gross is a little too risque for Mississippi Public Radio. According to a statement issued by director Dr. Judith Lewis:

“Too often Fresh Air’s interviews include gratuitous discussions on issues of an explicit sexual nature. We believe that most of these discussions do not contribute to or meaningfully enhance serious-minded public discourse on sexual issues. Our listeners who wish to hear Fresh Air may find it online.”

Haha, yeah. TOO OFTEN is right. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve turned on Fresh Air only to hear Seymour Hersch talking about raw-dogging it. There was also that time that that young journalist who was imprisoned in Iran described her favorite position (HINT: it is very gross and very sex.) Here is the portion of the interview with Louis C.K. that burned up all the ears down there:

Louis CK: But if I’m with a woman and she wants to be with me, she must like me. I definitely have sex with my T-shirt on, always. I haven’t had sex without a shirt on, God, since I was about 23.
Terry Gross: Is that true?
LCK: Yeah, I just don’t think that’s fair. I mean, you know, let her think she’s with somebody decent, you know? … I do have sex sometimes on the show, and there’s a rule that I have to be on my back.
TG: Why, because your stomach flattens?
LCK: Well, no, God, no. I’m not laying back in that bed thinking, “I look awesome right now.” It’s because I think I should always be the victim of the sex. I don’t think anyone wants to see me looming over her. I think that’s an upsetting image. And then also, the mother-dog stomach that I get when I’m … you get the point.

Personally, I think they should put Terry Gross in jail for what she has done. And Louis C.K. should have to register as a sex offender. Because life is precious, and God, and the Bible. (Thanks for the tip, Nick and Shoogyboomz.)

  1. Carl Kasell also left a fairly raunchy outgoing message on my answering machine.

  2. This has nothing on Delicious Dish.

  3. National Perverts Radio

  4. I’ve never been a huge LCK fan but “mother-dog stomach” might have won me over.

    • You should hear how he described his member on Joy Behar’s show.

    • CK is one of those people that i think is just so funny i don’t see how other people can’t think so as well.

      he doesn’t have a schtick or some level of irony that’s off-putting to people who don’t share a similar sensibility. he’s just being honest in a really fucking funny way.

      but my friend’s girfriend recently told me he “makes [her] uncomfortable.” and that’s an opinion she now shares with mississippi public radio.

      anyway, my point is, i hope it won you over for good, b/c there is so much to love.

    • Wasn’t “Mother-Dog Stomach” the band the guys from Pearl Jam used to be in?

  5. Almost as bad as when Totenberg details a nine-way.

  6. Mississippi cancels Fresh Air, exercise, tolerance, and FUNNY!

  7. Mississippi should stop acting like a faggot.

  8. Ira Glass better check himself. M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-YOU’RENEXTGROSS!

  9. I pray that this is the first shot heard round the world as the South rises again

  10. This guy likes his style:

    • bl-bl-bl-blow me b-b-b-b-b-bitch

    • Hold on, I always thought the shirt and nothing else was called the Donald Duck? And the Porky Pig is like some sort of dance the kids do nowadays?

      Somehow, an open blazer and a bow-tie and nothing else is much more acceptable to me than having a shirt on and no pants. It must be all the Chippendales performances I go see.

  11. A rare completely predictable miss, Mississippi.

  12. Looks like Terry is living up to her name! Because GROSS!!

  13. I listened to that interview, and honestly there was nothing crazy about it. They discussed the entymology of the word “faggot,” as it was described in his new show. I thought it was really interesting how the topic was handled.


  14. mississippi is the fatest state by far, so i’m sure it’s less for talking about sex than for suggesting sex with fat people is somehow disgusting and there is no reason to be ashamed of being overweight….that’s just un’merican.

  15. They’re overreacting, I mean it’s not like they were talking about gay sex, because THAT would merit the censorship!

  16. Really Mississippi? REALLY?

  17. did anybody see his response video before he took it down?

  18. So, quick question to all you Southern monsters out there (or anyone else who wants to chime in). I live in Atlanta and have been inundated lately by a glut of, frankly, scary ads from Republican candidates for governor, secretary of state, insurance commissioner, etc. One guy boasts a “100% NRA rating” (whatever that means) and another guy promises to “handle illegal immigrants JUST like Arizona.”

    Now, I’m not trying to say that Democrats and Democratic candidates don’t have their own problems/crazinesses. But, the level of vitriol being spouted against Obama “and his ilk” (another ad quote) seems next level. Anybody getting the same vibe from other parts of these United States?

    • I can’t say anything about the political ads, b/c I fast foward through commercials (Shout out, DVR!). But alot of people from my hometown in Louisiana, most notably my in-laws buy into this crap. They are also extremely racist, and make some really bad jokes about Obama and are shocked when my husband and I get offended by them.

    • Are you new to the South?

      I don’t listen to much radio or watch much tv but I can say that the comments section on the local news websites is absolutely crazy pants racist free-for-all. But no matter where you live, politics is a very emotional thing for a lot of people. For the unwashed masses, politics isn’t an intellectual debate of public policies at all; it’s much more base than that and always has been. Trying to understand this stuff on an intellectual level is the height of futility.

  19. Not to pile on here, but I’m also fairly certain that Kojo Nnamdi is coming for our white women.

  20. So, if I’m in Mississippi and forget my pornography, I won’t be able to rely on Fresh Air anymore? You know, to get my jerk on. With my penis.

  21. Mississippi is proud home of the world’s first “lesbian PSYCHE prom” where they invite lesbian students to a “prom” and then they’re all like “PSYCHE! The real prom is elsewhere and you’re not invited because you’re a lesbian and we hate you for it.”

    Okay, so fuck Mississippi. Even I have my limits people.

  22. There are people in Mississippi that actually listen to NPR?

  23. Between this and the Tracy Morgan post I have seen way too much exposed distended midsection in the past five minutes.

  24. It’s “Hersh.” No C.

  25. mr. show reference…thank you…
