Take John and Ken Off the Air - PERMANENTLY

    1. Petition by

      Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles

Because for more than a decade John and Ken, of "The John and Ken Show," on Clear Channel's KFI AM640, have been insulting and attacking anyone who does not agree with them; because these traffickers of hate speech have been terrorizing Los Angeles’ Latino, Asian American, African American, Jewish, and LGBT communities, creating an atmosphere of hate and intolerance and legitimizing intolerance and discrimination against members of these groups; because John and Ken habitually use unsubstantiated claims, divisive language, flawed argumentation and dehumanizing metaphors to shock and anger their audience; we the undersigned want you to take them off the air.

Because unless we pressure Clear Channel, they will continue to traffic hate on our public airwaves.

    1. Tell KTLA to drop John and Ken!

      Right on the heels of their racially charged comments against the Korean community, KFI's notorious John and Ken duo have once again put foot in mouth by calling the recently deceased Whitney Houston a "crack ho". As you may have heard, these disgusting comments did not sit well with the African American community or the rest of the nation, and as a response the duo was suspended from the airwaves by KFI management for nine days.
      As much as the campaign is pleased to see them off the air for nine days it is not enough. It is time that we see to it that this duo not only meet the end of their days on our public airwaves, but on KTLA as well where they continue to have a daily segment during the afternoon news hour.
      Join us in telling Don Corsini, KTLA General Manager and President, that having this notoriously racist duo on the KTLA news hour is not acceptable! Please call him directly at (323) 460-5447. And join our text campaign by texting "drophate" to 877877. Thank you!

    2. KFI AM 640 suspended John and Ken for calling Whitney Houston a “crack ho.”

      KFI temporarily suspended John and Ken after calling Whitney Houston a "crack ho." The hate mongers are scheduled to return to their show on Monday, February 27.

      How many times do John and Ken get to spew their hate, apologize and then do it again? KFI must permanently remove John and Ken from the air. Los Angeles deserves better. Call Clear Channel, at (210) 822-2828, and ask them to take John and Ken off the air PERMANENTLY. Also call KTLA-TV, at (323) 460-5500, and ask them to stop airing John and Ken during their news segment.

      So far this campaign has seen great success. You have helped us persuade 18 major corporations to make a commitment to stop advertising on the John and Ken show. Two of them have agreed to no longer advertise on KFI, a hot spot for hate. Many other advertisers have stopped advertising, without making the commitment. Contact the advertisers that continue advertising on the John and Ken show and ask them to stop supporting these shock jocks.

      John and Ken issued an official apology to Jorge Mario-Cabrera for the violent and hateful phone calls he received. What this means is they are feeling the heat from this campaign! Keep up the good work and spread the word that hate speech doesn't belong on the air.

This was one of the literally hundreds of voice-mails that Jorge-Mario Cabrera received on his personal cell phone after two hosts of a Los Angeles radio talk show read his phone number live on air and asked their listeners to call him in response to his support of the California DREAM Act..."

    12. AP: "Latino group wants LA radio hosts pulled from air"

      Jackie  Mahendra
      Petition Organiser

      "A Latino media group on Thursday urged a radio station to pull two popular talk radio hosts off the air after an advocate for immigrant rights reported receiving a barrage of threats from the program's fans. The National Hispanic Media Coalition said it would target advertisers of the "John and Ken Show" and urge them to stop backing the program."

      Jackie  Mahendra
      Petition Organiser

      "Last week I got a real taste of how far these low-brow instigators will go and how low they will stoop to "stimulate" political discourse. For these trash-talking agitators any type of immigrant integration legislation is "treasonous", any immigrant supporter a "traitor", and tax-payers (code word for non-immigrant, white males) should be mad-as-hell about it all."
