1040 WHO’s Jan Mickelson loses his argument with me.

Jan Mickelson

It appears that my smack down of 1040 WHO’s Jan Mickelson on the issue of gay rights did some good.  On Friday, the Des Moines Register reported on the response of Clear Channel Communications, which owns WHO, to Mickelson’s ridiculous remarks.  Although some of his remarks preceded my call, it is clear from the related reporting and commentary that my interaction with him is what provoked the strong rebuke. One Iowa, the gay-equality organization, was aggressive in calling Mickelson on his errors during my call.

Here is the full transcript of 1040 WHO’s retraction of Mickelson’s comments:

Jan Mickelson, an acknowledged conservative commentator with strong political views, is entitled to his opinions on a wide range of current topics.  However, his comments on August 19th regarding HIV/AIDS and public awareness campaigns regarding this disease confused strong opinion with medical fact and contain factual errors regarding HIV/AIDS, its spread, and current efforts to inform the public about this disease.

Mr. Mickelson’s comments do not reflect the opinions of Clear Channel, nor do they reflect the ongoing support Clear Channel provides to public service campaigns, such as Greater Than AIDS that works to convey the message that, indeed, AIDS does not discriminate. We regret any confusion about HIV/AIDS that may have resulted from Mr. Mickelson’s remarks

  1. Well Jan, I was listening the other day when you had the Woman on with her soft little “caring” voice who is against abortion. and now today your on the same track again … it seems to me that at present we are all paying the cost for these abortions and anyone who dont want any abortions should stand up and be counted, and also pay the bill,. put ur money where your mouth is. if I pay for an abortion thats a one time bill, this future kid will never cost me anymore money. if not I will probably be paying for this kid for the rest of its life because most are born to a single parent who is or will soon be on welfare. so, since you said that we have the tech. now to track everyone I want all of you who are against abortion to put your name on record, and when ever a kid isnt aborted,(when the mother wanted one), you all will stand up and kick in the cash when ever this kid is on any kind of public assistance, when ever this kid spends time in jail or prison,(which you yourself stated that will probably happen), In other words whenever this person needs any kind of help that would end up costing the taxpayers you all will step up and pay the bills,, in that case I will vote to end the abortions. untill then stay the heck out of it. In my opinion you should have no say so whether or not this Woman aborts her fetus, its HERS.
