Shoving It Back at Spitzer

Payback for payola investigations?

Radio stations are having a field day with the Eliot Spitzer story. (“I guess Spitzer does believe in pay-to-play after all!”).

There’s this YouTube clip saluting Spitzer’s “moral crusade against our so-called corrupted industry” and wondering what he did with the more than $40 million in settlements he exacted from radio.

According to Radio-Info.com, “some stations continue to salute the Spitzer folly with promotions like Keymarket’s in Pittsburgh. Its country “Froggy” uses the sounder from the old “Dragnet” TV show to give away copies of Sara Evans’ greatest hits, which includes the tune “Cheatin’.” Grand prize is two nights at the Super 8 near Cheat Lake, WV. And on satellite, Sirius put up a short-term “Client 9 Radio” talk channel, to discuss both Spitzer’s own predicament and wider issues.”

There’s also this “Daily Show” trailer:
