To:
Whom it Concerns

The Diatribe advocating mental anguish and physical assaults against children heard on the Rob and Arnie show was morally reprehensible.

It is the hope of every decent American to live in peace without "BEAT DOWNS" as Rob and Arnie prescribed being a daily ritual.

I do not understand why any company would not immediately remove support on moral grounds unless there are more important issues than defenseless children for your company to consider.

What is 'your policy?'

Sincerely,

Companies That Pulled Support from Rob and Arnie at KRXQ and KDOT | Send Praise

The following companies have pulled their support from KRXQ, not wanting to be associated with two men who laugh about children being abused. These companies listened to the show, and decided it was indefensible.
Actions have consequences.

Here’s contact information for the companies, for those who like writing thank-you notes:

Thank You for caring about children's welfare

To who it concerns,

Thank you for taking action and offering the only response that Rob and Arnie would take notice of.

By you withdrawing your fiscal support you have demonstrated responsibility and decency. By your response you have set a moral bar for the corporations that have not acted to endeavour to reach.

Thank you,

ROB Arnie & Dawn Show Statement June 7 2009

http://www.robarnieanddawn.com/
UPDATED JUNE 7TH, 2009, 11:50AM
TO OUR LOYAL ROB, ARNIE AND DAWN FOLLOWERS, WE HAVE FAILED YOU.
AS A SHOW, AS PEOPLE, AS BROADCASTERS,
WE HAVE SIMPLY FAILED ON ALMOST EVERY LEVEL.
WE PRESENTED OUR OPINIONS ON A VERY SENSITIVE SUBJECT IN A HATEFUL, CHILDISH AND CRUDE FASHION; AND THEN, GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO RETRACT THOSE REMARKS, WE DEFENDED THEM.
SINCE THEN, YOU, OUR LOYAL LISTENERS, HAVE MADE IT CLEAR TO US THAT WE WENT TOO FAR. THE RESPONSE HAS BEEN OVERWHELMING.
NONE OF YOU SAID THAT WE COULDN’T HAVE OPINIONS, YET SO MANY OF YOU SAID THAT THE WAY WE GAVE THEM CROSSED THE LINE. FURTHER, YOU SAID THAT OUR ATTEMPT TO MASK OUR COMMENTS AS “JOKES THAT WOULD BE UNDERSTOOD BY OUR AUDIENCE,” WAS UNACCEPTABLE. I WOULD SAY NOW THAT IT WAS WORSE THAN THAT, IT WAS COWARDLY. YOU HAVE MADE THAT CLEAR.
WE HAVE REACHED OUT TO VARIOUS GROUPS AND ASKED FOR A CHANCE TO MAKE THIS RIGHT; TO RESPOND, WITH THEIR PARTICIPATION, TO THE EDUCATION THAT OUR AUDIENCE HAS PROVIDED US. THAT OPPORTUNITY HAS BEEN GRACIOUSLY GRANTED THIS THURSDAY MORNING, JUNE 11TH. AT 7:30 A.M.
THE WORD APOLOGY APPEARS NO WHERE IN THIS LETTER FOR A REASON. WE ALREADY HID FROM DOING THE RIGHT THING ONCE AND WE’RE NOT GOING TO MAKE THAT MISTAKE AGAIN. APOLOGIZING IN A WRITTEN, POSTED STATEMENT IS A FORM OF COWARDICE. WE WILL SAY WHAT NEEDS TO BE SAID THIS THURSDAY.
ON A FINAL, PERSONAL NOTE, AS THE LEADER AND OWNER OF THE SHOW, I HAVE MADE THE DECISION THAT WE NEED TO REFRAIN FROM BROADCASTING NEW EPISODES UNTIL WE CAN ADDRESS THIS ON THURSDAY . WE WILL RETURN TO THE AIR AT 7:30 A.M. JUNE 11TH.

****************************
Glaad issued http://glaadblog.org/ a statement tittled " KRXQ Radio Host Rob Williams Declares Failure" in which they state that the Rob Arnie and Dawn show contacted them late Friday asking for a telephone conversation Monday.

********************************************

Are Arnie and Rob attempting to milk this event for maximum exposure or are they genuinely repentant?

Rob and Arnie's history leads me to be skeptical, but Rob and Arnie have this opportunity to change their ways.
