chip franklin Makes a Joke of Poor Kids in San Diego....from Dec, 2011..www.open.salon.com/blog/ chloelouise

chip franklin, of KOGO radio, makes a joke of poor kids in San Diego.

I hope the kids riding to school in the car this morning, rich or poor, were not listening while chip franklin of KOGO radio in San Diego, was making fun of children needing school lunches at a reduced price. It was actually embarrassing, to hear--he is amazingly obtuse. Or again, as I have written before--is chip just making a show, trying to say outrageous things to get ratings--at the expense of all children, but particularly low-income kids.

He was referring to a recent piece on Sesame Street, depicting kids asking questions about receiving lunches at a reduced price. Chip, in his usual insensitive fashion, mimicking the voice of children, suggested the kids should not be receiving the meals because their parents were spending the lunch money on flat screen televisions and cell phones.

Its hard to imagine, the children, he was so busy using to make a joke, were in charge of the family finances. Often kids in that situation are embarrassed or worried about being singled out because of the financial situation at home. Regardless of the budgeting ability of the parents the child still may be hungry.

I wonder how the kid feels at school when all of the other kids are showing off their new toys or possessions and that individual is worrying about being hungry and having something to eat. The children love their parents regardless of their financial decisions and they may be very protective of their financial struggles--that would be so hard for a child to hear this morning.

Is that what chip teaches his children--to make fun of kids that have less than them--to make a joke of people who might go to school hungry.

I worked with children in a low income area of San Diego; some that temporarily lived in a shelter. They had dignity and they needed a lot of things. I don't think they wanted to keep talking about it. I think the kids just want to be like every one else. Many of the parents had two jobs--jobs that did not have a high monetary reward. I think they appreciated the meals at the school.

Will their grades improve if they are hungry during the school day, as chip is cruelly suggesting?

chip--what was the point of the Sesame Show?

Chip often proclaims the family should help the children, not the government. Hey chip, some families are not in that position, they are hard working; they love their kids just like you, and the kids love the parents, too. They want their kids to have things and have a good life--just like the other kids--just like you do, chip!

It seems like chip is beyond embarrassment---he will sell out anyone or anything to make a show.

Nice job--nice sentiment for the holiday season!

All this right wing crap on radio is garbage. EVERYONE on KOGO is a racist, ignoramous.

La Donna should go back to traffic, she's as dumb as a box of Republicans.

Only people listening to AM radio are old, racists turds. Good luck with that

Many people hit it right on the head...Franklin thinks he is always right and never thinks things through. Without his sidekick, he can't remember many words or people or history right. Get him out of here along with Rush. We want out nice KoGO back. LaDonna is boring, also.

I heard Jack Rice last night on KOGO after the debate. Didn't he do stuff for KOGO from the Conventions? I love this guy. Finally finaly finally, somebody at KOGO who isn't in the tank for the Republicans and completely blind to everything else. Will he honestly talk about the issues? Sure sounded like it last night.
in the tank for republicans?"" That's so vague I'm not sure what that means? However- I find most KOGO hosts to me bend over backwards moderate until in
Nauseated. And the rest are openly, hugely to the LEFT! Chris Merrill whines constantly about Liberal issues- berates ANYONE who differs in opinion! He and sully drove me straight to 760 AM!

Listening to KOGO is worse than torture. It is cruel and unusual punishment. Talk about abusing the 1st Amendment!

Seems like Sully tried to base his whole career on ousting Filner. They're having a one-year celebration on their "victory."

Puckerface press. Sort of like yellow journalism, but with some kind of difference, I don't know what. Oh, yeah, port town politics.

Cruel and unusual punishment also includes false accusations.

This town is terrible. What's missing in all of Filner's crimes? His penis. I haven't read anywhere about any of these accusers mentioning his penis. That means they never saw his penis, his penis was never brought into play in any of his crimes.

Anyone remember Councilman Hartley: http://www.10news.com/news/council-candidate-...

With Hartley, there was penis involved. I don't think he even got as heavy a sentence as Filner. But, as I remember it, there was no allegations of physical contact, either.

What did KOGO do back then?
