Artie Lange, Joe Buck, And The Hypocrisy Of HBO

The comic Artie Lange was recently invited to Joe Buck’s new HBO show Joe Buck Live.  While on the show Lange was both funny and abrasive.  Now the head of HBO, Ross Greenburg has apologized for Lange and banned him from HBO,

“I would say I’m sorry to anyone across America who had kids and were watching what they thought was a good and honest sports show that turned into gutter language.”

I did not see the original airing of the show, but I did catch it on a replay.  Also, the show continues to replay on HBO.  Now if Mr. Greenburg is so sorry for Lange’s actions why is he continuing to air the program?  Either apologize and refuse to air the show, or continue to air it and embrace Lange’s brand of comedy.  Just don’t profit from Lange’s appearance and fain shock.

  1. If I hear one more media apology I’ll puke. When did America become so easily bothered about stupid things on TV. Greenberg–you douchebag–you hear from two or three loudmouth do gooders and you cave like a house of cards. Grow and set and tell those idiots to watch something else. Yojoe is right on about the replay.

    God do not deliver us from “bad words”–deliver us from holy men such as Greenberg and the handful of people who were offended. Pure and simple–panty waste.
