It’s not all ugly, mind you.
But in the breezily readable new memoir from comic Pat Cooper called How Dare You Say How Dare Me?, the Italian firebrand Cooper — who was a mouthy regular on the Stern show — has this to say:
“I really like Howard. I always have.
“But Howard went to the Hamptons.
“Howard remarried and went A-list.
“Howard’s real audience is riding around in cars and trucks and cabs listening to AM/FM for what Howard pays his interns.
“They’re not subscribing to a satellite company to get 120 channels.
“Howard left his real audience in traffic.”
And I guess they’re stuck there!
Concludes the non-punch-holding Cooper, Howard actually left his audience very gradually.
“The crowns worn by the King of all Media came off one jewel at a time.”
Ouch. That’s gotta hurt!
