In this 1996 deposition, which is subject to a protective sealing order (not that that could stop The Smoking Gun), Howard discusses the bad blood between himself and the Evergreen Media Corporation, which he has sued for breach of contract. The transcript picks up after Howard has been questioned about an on-air tirade in which he fantasized about Evergreen official Lawrence Wert being raped by a crazed, AIDS-infected homosexual. If you can stifle the laughter long enough, take note of Stern's convincing turn as a protector of teenage innocence. Finally, Howie's right: it's a violation of the United States Code (Title 18, Section 1716) to mail that stuff.
